Ned Flanders: ID Advocate

Harry Shearer, the voice of Ned Flanders, the Simpson's nauseatingly cheerful next-door neighbor, Mr. Burns, the evil overlord of the Springfield nuclear plant, and a host of other people on "The Simpsons" was interviewed by Mark Rahner of the Seattle Times, who asked:
Q: Seattle is the home of the Discovery Institute. What would Ned Flanders have to say about intelligent design?

A: There's actually an episode next fall, I believe, where he pressures the local school to start teaching intelligent design, so you'll know then.
If, like RSR, you're a big fan of Christopher Guest movies, you'll be interested to know that Shearer also lets the cat out the bag about a new movie coming out in September called "For Your Consideration." Shearer, who is in it, says it's about "actors who are about three rungs below the top of the ladder who suddenly get a fairly bizarre case of Oscar fever, and what happens in the world around them as a result."

Starring Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Parker Posey, Jane Lynch, Rachael Harris, Ricky Gervais "and a whole bunch of other folks familiar from 'Best in Show' and 'Mighty Wind' and 'Waiting for Guffman."

Now, those are two events worth waiting for...
