Smothers Brothers On Silver Screen?

12:01 PM Wednesday 12/14/11 | |

George Clooney and Smokehouse Pictures’ Grant Heslov are said to be collaborating to produce a movie about the Smothers Brothers.

The script will be based on David Bianculli’s book “Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” according to The Wrap.

The Smothers Brothers’ show was canceled after two seasons for angering CBS censors by injecting commentary on the Vietnam War and other hotbed topics during the weekly variety series.

In that time, though, the brothers – who recently hosted the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards show – made an indelible mark in music history with their show, from Pete Seeger’s controversial performance of “Waist Deep In The Big Muddy” to the truly explosive performance by The Who.

Who do you think should portray Tom and Dick Smothers? Mull that one over for a few minutes and then drop your answer in the comment thread below.

    Meh. Not sure how interesting they can make a movie like this.

    It will proibably be somebody like Steve Carrel playing Tom and Kevin James playing Dickie.

    Very excited about the possibility of a Smothers Brothers movie...I'm casting

    Steve Zahn to play Tom Smothers and Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia) to play  Smothers.

    For those that are too young to remember, The Smothers Brothers were one of the best comedy duos you'll ever see.  More people might remember the Wayans Brothers, but these guys were writing incredible jokes about Vietnam, the President and religion during a time when it was unpopular to do so.
