Laura Linney? O, Who Will Answer Our Casting Call?
THE MORNING QUICKIE:
The early a.m. roundup of 'toons, from the cinematic to the melodramatic...
JUDGE PARKER: As the Evil Cheerleader Moms of Doom storyline continues to unnnnfold like a creaky lawn chair, there are elements of it all that this Riffster finds utterly compelling. Today, the most eye-catching is: Holly Norton looks like somebody -- SOME actress -- but I just can't put my imdb.com-clicking finger on it.
Hmm. Still drawing a blank.
So the Official 'Riffs Reader Question of the Day: Whom would you cast as the ever-confident Holly Norton?
DENNIS THE MENACE: To pick up on my drumbeat of last week: This, folks, is not quite the same curmudgeonly Mr. Wilson we've known for so long. The dialogue is turning a bit toward Earl of "Pickles," but the visuals are something else altogether: Ol' Man Wilson is growing darker, less wry and wisecracking and more honestly, well, depressive. Stay with us, Mr. Wilson. Many days, you're the best thing going in the strip.
BREWSTER ROCKIT: Some cartoonists have no idea, really, how to effectively use curse-word dingbats. Tim Rickard, on the other hand, is obviously a master who has studied well at the shrine at MAD magazine. So a tip of the cap to Mr. Rickard -- #$%*&$@ brilliant.
