Speaking of movies based on dolls.. er, sorry, I mean, action figures...

Along with the upcoming Transformers movie and the just-announced ThunderCats feature, there's a new and presumably improved He-Man and the Masters of the Universe film on the drawing board. I would understand if the producers decide that, this time, they should cast someone a tad bit more expressive than Dolph Lundgren in the lead role. But I think it would be way cool if they'd let Frank Langella reprise his performance as Skeletor (one of the few saving graces in the 1987 Masters of the Universe flick). I mean, what else could Langella do as a follow-up to playing Richard Nixon, right? And come to think of it, Meg Foster hasn't been up to much lately -- so maybe she could take another shot at playing Evil-Lyn?

But if you want to find out what happens to action figures after their stardom fades, look here. Warning: It's not a pretty picture.
