Yeah, but who'll play Snookums and Snowflake?

Every once in awhile, you can actually learn something from those end of the year Weird Stories wrapups.

Tom Hanks was signed to play flamboyant congressman Charlie Wilson of Lufkin, who helped Afghani mujahedeen oust the Soviets, in a movie based on the book Charlie Wilson's War: The Extraordinary Story of the Largest Covert Operation in History.

That could be really cool, or it could suck all kinds of rocks. I just have one request: Hire Molly Ivins as a script consultant. She has some great stories to tell about ol' Charlie.
