Former WWE superstar, Shad Gaspard, just got an audition with Brett Ratner’s upcoming superhero movie, “Youngblood” via Twitter [Comic Book Movie]. I’ve never heard of “Youngblood” though I’m somewhat familiar with Chapel’s character from “Spawn.” Body-wise, Shad definitely possesses the brawny muscles for the role. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
This is fantastic news indeed. Shot putter, Manuel Martinez (official site), is currently involved in the final week of filming for the comic book adaptation of Lorenzo Mattotti’s Estigmas (original site here; official site). The film is directed by Adan Aliaga Vallencia (original site here).
We will finally get to see this massive bear of a man in his film debut (does his 3-second television appearance in Cachorro [Bear Cub] count?). The film is scheduled to be released in either January or February of 2009.
I am very intrigued with the premise of Estigmas. Here’s a brief (and somewhat poor) translated description:
The crab-producing films has decided to make a radical bid to Europe with the comic adaptation of the audacious, brilliant, and critically-acclaimed “Stigma” by Lorenzo Mattotti (drawing) and Claudio Piersanti (dash). “Stigma” is the story of the loneliness of a man marked by a tragic fate, the emergence of some sores on his hands that he represents God and that it enclosed in a world of madness.
I definitely can’t wait to see this. In the meantime, here are some more photos of the superbly woofy, Manuel Martinez…

Ah, Ray Winstone (and, yup, still my “Number One Bear”). I’ve been following the news of him playing the role of poet William Blake since 2004. It appears that he won’t be starring in it (if it ever gets produced) as he stated, “I’m getting a bit old to play it now.”
What a shame. I’ve been eagerly checking out that news, since William Blake’s works were forcefully fed to me by my woofy college professor. If it wasn’t for my professor, I would have discounted Blake’s works (I originally found them to be simple and devoid of meaning). Perhaps my views changed because my woofy professor loved Blake? I’m not sure. What I do know is that he made me realize that one of Blake’s works was a masterpiece: “Songs of Innocence and Experience.”
And for some reason, when I was reading Bearotic‘s post about the twisted, demented, and very sick online comic strip, The Other Family (a completely whacked out version of Bill Keane’s Family Circus), I can’t help but think of William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence and Experience.”
I’ve divided the comic strips into three parts. So if there’s anybody out there who’s doing a report on William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence and Experience,” just read through these modern comics and you’ll get the main gist of Blake’s ideas…
Yes, in spite of and because of the comic strip’s absurdity, it actually perfectly portrays the juxtaposition of the innocent, pastoral world of childhood against an adult world of corruption and repression (thank you, Spark Notes!). I wish this comic strip was around back then so that I could have gotten an A+. ^_^
I’m somewhat embarrassed since I’m filtering in some traffic for those people (i.e., straight-folk and even gays who don’t like bears) who are doing Google searches on “Jeffrey Dean Morgan The Comedian.” Unfortunately, some of them end up being horrified and violated at my gay attractions towards the actor who plays The Comedian from my original Watchmen post.
Be that as it may, the Watchmen trailer has arrived in glorious Quicktime, and the short glimpses that we see of The Comedian is already proving that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is definitely perfect for the role who also happens to be seriously exuding such badassery that even these gay haters will have to feel some sort of homo-attraction towards him. Must I add an apologetic “lolz”? Um, no.
Let’s see: Woofy bald musclebear. Bondage. Wearing just briefs. Mythic anthropomorphic artistic bad bunnies painting on musclebear’s “eggs.”
Wow. Now that’s an Easter celebration I could boogie down with… And to continue my SubBearSive Happy Easter greetings, here are some more egg hunting festivities… 😉
Warren Sapp loves the football…
