Beavis and Butthead: The Live-Action Movie?

They’re baaaaaaaaaack. Well, if Mike Judge decides to bring them back, that is. And it won’t be another animated movie like “Beavis and Butthead do America”, either. Instead, Judge is talking about bringing back the slacker/couch potato duo as … a live-action movie? Yup, that’s what he said. Of course, it’s just talk from Judge, who is already committed to doing a comedy called “Extract” with Jason Batemen. But tell me a live-action “Beavis and Butthead” movie wouldn’t just rule?

Here’s what Judge told MTV:

“I feel like it’s something I can come back to and do,” creator Mike Judge told us…

“I’ve even thought about doing a live-action ‘Beavis & Butt-Head’ possibly,” he revealed….

“The Three Stooges survived a lot of different guys with Shemp, Curly,” he reasoned. “I haven’t yet said, ‘OK, I wanna make a live-action “Beavis & Butt-Head” movie, and here’s the idea.’ But for some reason, I used to hate the idea for years, and now I think maybe there’s something there.”

Wow, it sure sounds like he’s ready to do it, right? But wait, he added this:

“Casting is bad enough as it is. I don’t know if I want to sit through a casting session trying to find the live-action Beavis & Butt-Head,” he laughed.

Oh come on, Mike, it couldn’t be THAT bad.

Here’s a video of the interview:

    You my friend are more full of it than I. Jack Black and Seann William Scott? I was just talking about this earlier with a friend of mine and Stiffler is for lack of a better word too macho for… Beavis or Butt-Head. You need some scrawny guys like DJ Qualls or Jay Baruchel from Knocked-Up to play guys like those. McLovin looks like a better Butt-Head. You remember Wyatt and Gary from Weird Science? Anthony Michael Hall’s friends from Sixteen Candles? *Those* are your geek-faced characters. Jack Black is a dad already. There’s no way he could pull off a high schooler. He’s pushing 40.
