The Copperheads Featured in a Question on “Jeopardy”

We’re on our way to our busiest day ever here on FNYTSF as we just cracked 1,000 hits and are probably going to eclipse our all-time high in the next few hours! I thought it best to post this little fun fact and ask if anyone was tuning in when it aired…

Unfortunately, I did not see this myself, but a friend of mine called and told me that the Copperheads made it to Jeopardy tonight by way of a political cartoon being shown on the big board. I then sent him the picture above and he confirmed that was the one they used. I guess you could say that was pretty good timing by the folks over there making the questions. It’s just too bad that not one of the three contestants got the answer right—one of the many reasons why this upcoming film will be so important.

And of course, please visit the special page we have dedicated on the blog for this film, and remember to check it out for the latest Copperhead information!

    HAHAHA. Damn, i can’t believe i missed it!

    In other Copperhead news, this is pretty interesting:

    “Patric was set to play family head Abner Beech, only Deadline ( http://www.deadline.com/2012/06/the-killing’s-billy-campbell-replaces-jason-patric-on-copperhead/ ) says the actor “was dismissed … for refusing to take instructions” from Maxwell, and Campbell has been plugged in.

    Strange. We’re not saying that Maxwell’s an infallible filmmaker who demands to be listened to. But his past credits suggest he’s at least informed enough on the subject matter that an actor like Patric would want to put his trust in him to make a good film. Also, Patric – while working consistently – hasn’t had the level of success he enjoyed during that 1987-97 run that saw him starring in Sleepers, The Lost Boys and, yes, Speed 2: Cruise Control.

    Then again, there are two sides to every story, and I’m sure Patric would like to be able to explain why he and Maxwell had difference on the set of Copperhead. No matter what, it cost him a gig, and opened a door for Campbell. He’s a fine actor, but we know so little about the role. Do you think he’s a good choice to headline Copperhead, or will you wait to reserve judgment? Let us know.”
