There’s a new Cosby show and it’s not being televised, it’s playing out on social media, the press, and in real-time. The plot is a cliff-hanger: what will become of a celebrity that was once highly revered and perceived to
ABC is bringing back the ’80s as it tries to revive some of the popular films and television shows of the neon decade.
A pilot of the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick is already on order and word is they’re also considering “an ’80s version of The Wonder Years…described as Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets The Ice Storm.”
Blindie is most excited about ABC’s recent order of a pilot for the 1983 alien miniseries V. Written by Scott Peters (The 4400), the remake will center around a female Homeland Security agent and will no doubt try to recapture the popularity of the original series with an advertising blitz, and some lizard babies.
As for the cast, we suggest Jason Momoa of the recently cancelled Stargate Atlantis and the mother of his two children Lisa Bonet who is already familiar a member of Science Fiction club with her role in Life on Mars.
The meaning of the Hawaiian names were also provided on the site: “Nakoa(warrior)…Mana(strength/spirit) Kaua(rain) po(dark).” The third name Namakaeha is Jason’s original Hawaiian name which means “all knowing eyes.”
Bonet and Momoa welcomed Nakoa-Wolf on December 15th. They already have 16-month-old daughter Lola Iolani together and Bonet has 20 year-old daughter Zoe Kravitz with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.

This is the third child for Bonet, 41, who has 16-month-old daughter Lola Iolani with Momoa, and another daughter, 20 year-old Zoe Kravitz, with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.
The former Cosby kid recently returned to television on the ABC drama Life on Mars.
It’s time to recognize the famous African American Jews who celebrate Hanukkah as well as Christmas—and maybe even Kwanzaa:
Lisa Bonet – the Life on Mars actress has a Jewish mother and an African American father.
Lenny Kravitz – the sexy singer boasts Jewish TV producer Sy Kravitz for a father and the late African American TV star Roxie Roker of The Jeffersons for a mother.
Sophie Okonedo – the British star of The Secret Life of Bees has a Jewish mother and a Nigerian father.
Slash – the Velvet Revolver metal head has a mother of Nigerian descent and a British Jewish father.
Rashida Jones – the former Office worker is the daughter of African American music icon Quincy Jones and Mod Squad actress Peggy Lipton who is Jewish.
Rain Pryor – the daughter of African American comic legend Richard Pryor has a Jewish mother.
Before you start fantasizing about Lisa Bonet baring it all again, (Angel Heart anyone?) let us clarify: The Cosby Show is being spoofed in a porn called Not the Cosby’s XXX.
None of the original Cosby Show cast will appear in the skin flick but producer Jeff Mullen says some of the naughty action will take place on a set resembling Denise Huxtable’s room.
We’re kind of curious as to who will fill Bill Cosby’s role and whether they will remake the episode where Theo gets his ear pierced. That storyline could go in so many directions.
The Stargate Atlantis alum was allegedly struck in the face with a glass by Dominic Bando, 21, after a verbal altercation at a West Hollywood restaurant. Momoa required 140 stitches and reconstructive surgery due to the incident.
Bando, who was out on probation for a gun charge conviction this past March, will be arraigned on December 10 and faces up to seven years in prison.
