pee wee coming to hbo

Looks like Pee-Wee Herman has found yet another new home for his playhouse!

Paul Reuben's Pee-Wee Herman Show is currently running on Broadway, and next it will make its way to HBO.

Immediately after the show leaves New York's Stephen Sondheim Theatre on January 2, the play will be shot for a 2011 premiere on HBO.

Here's what SVP of HBO Original Programming Nancy Geller had to say about the network's history with Pee-Wee Herman:

“Before his hit series and movies, HBO introduced Paul Reubens’ Pee-wee Herman to a national audience in the Young Comedians series, followed by the groundbreaking 1981 special."

Love it!

Looks like Disney's got some seriously ambitious plans for the Tron franchise!

We'll be very curious to see how Tron-mania holds up when the film, Tron: Legacy, is released next month.

Are U excited to see Elijah Wood enter the Tron world? Or would U prefer to see him kicking it in Middle Earth?

Pee-Wee Is Ageless?

Paul Reubens Talks Keeping Pee Wee Herman Ageless Paper Magazine

Look, you can lie to us all you want, but there is no denying that someone has left his playhouse a time or two to hook up with Mr. Botox. We're not judging - we're just stating the obvious!

Paul Reubens, better known as Pee-Wee Herman, is the cover boy for Paper Magazine this month. In the issue, he covers an array of topics, from his new Broadway show to his 90s scandal that almost ruined him. But it was the part about him staying "ageless" that really caught our eye. In the interview, he said:

"I'm blown away that {the character of Pee-Wee] had this longevity. I'm getting old! I certainly didn't expect to really be doing this — in the same way that I didn't expect to see the Rolling Stones out there doing it. It's awkward! There's no other way to say it. I keep getting cautioned by people I work with, 'Stop talking about how old you are!' But one gets a certain wisdom, you get a certain perspective, certain growth patterns as you get older — it's not so easy for me to go, 'Age isn't really into this at all.' It's not only related to it, it's very interesting to be becoming wise and know stuff I didn't know, and apply that to the process of writing and creating something."

Uh-huh. So, if you are embracing the wisdom side of your aging, why aren't you embracing the wrinkly side too???

Or at least fess up about it! You're 58, man! There is no way!

Original Cast Members Join Up With Pee-Wee On Broadway

Filed under: Broadway Babies

Back in 1981, The Pee-wee Herman Show was just a bit act at the Groundlings Theater. Thirty years later, it's headed to Broadway and the cast that made the magic all happen the first time is poised to return.

Paul Reubens will be joined by three of the other original thespians who brought Pee-Wee to life. John Moody, John Paragon and Lyne Marie Stewart will join forces with the rest of the cast that performed the new show in L.A. earlier this year as they head to the Great White Way.

This is pretty exciting for anyone who is a true Pee-Wee enthusiast! (Are there such people? For some reason, we hope not!)

Pee-Wee Herman Returns To The Big Screen!

Filed under: Film FlickersSilly!

With the huge success of the stage show and the upcoming Broadway debut, Pee-Wee Herman is finally coming back in a big way.

After almost two decades, Paul Reubens will be bringing his lovable alter-ego back to the big screen, with the help of Judd Apatow.

Judd is reportedly developing the Pee-wee Herman adventure pic for Universal with his production company, but he has no intention to direct. However, Pee-Wee himself will be writing the script with Paul Rust.

Can't ask for much more than that!

Do U want to see a new Pee-Wee movie?
