Fun with Dick and Jane


Actor Thomas Jane has landed the top role in an HBO pilot about a guy who uses his massive gift to get ahead:

"The dark comedy pilot, directed by Oscar winner Alexander Payne, centers on Ray (Jane), a well-endowed struggling middle-age high school basketball coach who figures out a way to use his best asset."

And a Thomas Jane "sizzle" reel, courtesy of I am a TV Junkie, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Let's hope he really is hung, can you imagine the groupies expecting at least 7 inches from him.

  3. Hi, dear. Was that title "All This And Heaven Too"? Well, it shoulda' been.

  4. For the full frontal, rent the movie Stander where Thomas frolics on the beach nude.

  6. Um, my high school gym teachers (or basketball coaches, whatever) NEVER looked anything like Thomas Jane. Why couldn't I go to his high school?

  8. Oh, Evan. It must get lonely in your sad little world.

  9. No, CRISPY. EVAN is on an admirable mission...but "muscular & butch" will always win over "artistic & sensitive".

  10. Great headline for story: "Fun with Dick and Jane." But shouldn't it be, "Fun with dick and Jane"? Just kidding....

    Mmmmmmm, Hung.

  12. The first time I saw Thomas Jane was in "Deep Blue Sea" his strut was amazing. Then I saw "The Velocity of Gary" where he played a gay hustler. The opening shot of bathing with a fire hydrant got me again. I'll watch anything he's in.

  13. I had a PE coach in junior high that we all called Coach Floppy, for obvious reasons. Always wanted to get a look at it but never did.

  14. Thanks for the picture of a handsome man instead of the usual pretty boys. See, e.g., the blond and the blanc threesome in a previous post.

    I had a PhysEd coach in mid-school that would put even the admirable Mr. Jane to shame. His actual name was "Mister Dewey" and boy did he ever make us--boys, girls, students and teachers--so.

    He was also my civics teacher so I had the daily pleasure of watching him shower and dress for class. Damnation did he fill out those Jockey shorts. Even the other coaches could not help but comment on his basket.

    Mr. Dewey was also the most masculine yet thoughtful and caring male teacher I ever had. He was our sponsor for the 8th grade talent show and gave several helpful suggestions.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Andy!

  15. Damn, that Patricia Arquette is One Lucky (and, likely, happy) Lady....woooof.

    Hello, Netflix?

  19. Lets hope if they make him whip out a prosthetic whopper, it will look better than that dog penis Wahlberg showed off in Boogie Nights. Eeeugh. Talk about an anti-climax! LOL

  20. Nice, another REAL man with actual hair on his body instead of some make-up'd, tweezed, shaved twinkie-boy.

    Thanks, Andy!
