EW reports that Aaron Sorkin may have tapped Olbermann to write for his new HBO show about cable news, since apparently Sorkin spent some time on Olbermann’s set while he was penning the pilot. And, naturally, Sorkin’s “spending time on his set” means Olbermann will be one of the writers on the show. EW claims that Bradley Whitford could work as an Olbermann doppelganger, while we think our casting suggestion is more apt.
The Angriest Bird of All
While we’re on the writing train, why not give Olbermann a gig at the new Angry Birds TV show? He’s always super mad and a little orange. He also talks about the iPhone a lot.
Some conservatives thought of this one, unsurprisingly. We’re a little hesitant about this idea, since “Count” isn’t exactly a viable career these days. Especially a Socialist Count. How would you make a living that way?
Keith Olbermann Network
Why shouldn’t Keith Olbermann start his own network entirely? His initials actually work quite well as a network name: KON (The Keith Olbermann Network). And we bet that William Shatner would be game to record some Star Trek-inspired promos for the right price.
