Heat Vision and Jack


I know — nay, I hope, that many of you have already seen this. But, in case you haven’t, Heat Vision and Jack was a pilot for a comedic sci-fi show that was pitched to FOX back in 1999. It was directed by Ben Stiller, and stars Jack Black as a former astronaut who has gained superintelligence. It also features Owen Wilson as the voice of a talking motorcycle, and Ron Silver as himself — an actor who also happens to be a villainous assassin working for NASA.

Trust me, it’s good. And according to the Wikipedia article (and I definitely trust everything I read on Wikipedia), there’s a movie script in the works.

    I think you’re forgetting that Ron Silver was in fact a villianous assassin who was an actor in his sapre time, not the other way around.
