I'm a HOUSE fanatic, so the idea of Hugh Laurie playing the villain (according to Variety) in Jose Padilha's ROBOCOP reboot tickles me to death. He's currently negotiating to play "the villainous CEO of Omni Corp" for the new film, but it's unclear if that character will be named after Ronny Cox's Dick Jones.
God, I hope so. Even the detractors at this point have to concede that ROBOCOP is getting a mighty interesting cast now. Still, although I love the idea of Laurie as Dick Jones, I can't imagine he's going to make anyone piss their pants in the men's room like Ronny Cox.
