Here are the highlights from Friday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
– Mark Wahlberg announced Thursday that Tom Brady will appear in his movie “Ted 2.” The Patriots quarterback will also get screen time in the upcoming “Entourage” movie with tight end Rob Gronkowski.
“That ‘Entourage’ movie is going to suck,” said Minihane.
Replied Callahan: “But not if Gronk and Brady are in it. I picture Brady as fitting in in any movie, handling it without a hitch. But Gronk? I’m curious to see that in a movie.”
“He’s going to to act like himself,” Minihane said of Gronkowski.
“He’ll need a few takes,” Callahan said.
“What, do you think Brady is Daniel Day Lewis?” asked Minihane.
Replied Callahan: “Ed Norton I see him as.”
– A wildlife filmmaker decided to get eaten whole by an anaconda for Discovery Channel’s show “Eaten Alive.” Paul Rosolie built a custom suit that protected him from being killed by the snake, the network confirmed. The show will air in early December.
Said Dennis: “It’s like ‘Sharknado.’ He uses a chainsaw there.”
“If the snake lives, that means he doesn’t use a chainsaw,” replied Callahan.
Dennis was shocked that any person would undertake such an endeavor.
“How did [Rosolie] know that the anaconda doesn’t like wrap him up and squeeze the snot out of him?” he asked.
Replied Callahan: “His people would’ve stopped it, there were people all around.”
“OK, you’re going to stop an anaconda?” asked Dennis
“I can’t even look at a snake without getting creeped out. This guy’s going to go inside,” said Callahan.
“I bet it’s dark in there,” replied Dennis.
– Simmons College officially opened itself to transgender students. The school has unofficially done this for years, but it now is publicly joining the gender nonconforming movement, becoming the third school in the United States to do so.
“So the big takeaway here is an all-girls school is now going to let guys in as long at they wear something pretty,” Callahan said. “If you want to get into Simmons College, put on a nice sun dress.”
Replied Minihane: “I don’t think that’s how it works. … I’m confused. When I read this story I feel like 150 years old. I hate to be that guy.”
“This is the world your poor daughter is growing up in,” Callahan said to Minihane.
