Parrothead Alert!!!

Bubba's Got An Acting Gig!

Go check out the trailer for Hoot! It's based on a book of the same name written by Carl Hiaasen. Hiaasen usually does adult novels (which have inspired some Buffett tunes), but Hoot was his stab at juvenile fiction.

Hiaasen is a liberal tree-hugger, to be sure, but he's funny as hell, and it'd take an absolutely humorless paleo-conservative not to find his books an absolute... well... hoot! If you're not familiar with his novels, I'd recommend his earlier ones, Skin Tight, Double Whammy, Striptease and Native Tongue. They're the best he's done so far, IMHO.

Bubba's got a prime spot in this movie trailer! Go take a look!
