Gisele Bundchen And Tom Brady Tapped For Movie Remake of "Errand Boy"

Recently engaged couple Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen are in talks to star in a remake of the vintage Jerry Lewis film "Errand Boy," sources say. "It's Giselle's idea," according to the source. "Brady seems a little lukewarm on it, probably because he already spends most of his time running errands for her." (Indeed, the injured football star last week paid a paparazzi $2500 not to print a picture of him standing in line at Walgreens as he waited to buy a box of Tampax for the Brazilian supermodel.)

The source went on to say the biggest hurdle for the movie deal is finding the right script. "This is a comedy, and neither Brady nor Giselle have much of a sense of humor. They're both kind of stiff and wooden."

Schwarzenegger Orders eBay Auction of Hollywood Sign

Facing a depleted Treasury, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today authorized a sweeping fund raising effort that includes such measures as auctioning on eBay the individual letters of the fabled "Hollywood" sign in Los Angeles, selling the naming rights to the Golden Gate Bridge, and affixing advertising to roads signs on state highways. "It's a fantastic opportunity," said the Governor of the plan to sell the 50-foot high letters of the landmark sign in the Hollywood hills. "Owning a piece of Hollywood history like this is an opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime."

Officials said that under the terms of the auction, each letter would be owned individually, with restrictions on movement. "A person could receive legal title to the letter," one source said. "But they can't move it. Or paint it. Or actually do anything to it. It's kind of an ego thing, actually."

Plans for selling the naming rights for other state structures, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, are also in motion. "We envision stadium names, like the Intel Golden Gate Bridge, or the Denny's Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity Golden Gate Bridge." Highway signs are also included. In one example, an exit sign for the 405 freeway would be known as the Long John Silver Exit 27 Upland/ Cienega. "We have to be creative, " Schwarzenegger said. "Raising taxes is not the answer. The Toyota Highlander Presents Leo Carillo Beach State Park is."
