movie casting of the decade

OK, try to remain as calm as possible when you read the following news. Make sure you're not doing any ironing or have muffins in the oven that might burn once said news gives you a case of the vapors.

18 short days from now, the SciFi Channel will feature the world premiere of (wait for it...) ANACONDA 3: THE OFFSPRING STARRING DAVID HASSELHOFF (AND JOHN RHYS-DAVIES AS "MURDOCH")!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH! CRACK EACH OTHER'S HEADS OPEN!

Not only that, but we'll even see an Anaconda 4 by the end of the year.

This could be the movie casting of the decade; on par with the 1990s' casting of Tommy "Tiny" Lister and Bokeem Woodbine (link goes to a profile in Vibe entitled Bokeem Woodbine: Life of a Champion) in Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies (it doesn't!).

I mean, adding Rhys-Davies to anything makes it better, particularly if it's a movie featuring some sort of sabretooth. Since I'm guessing there are no sabretooths (sabreteeth?) in Anaconda 3, the fact that his character is named "Murdoch" totally makes up for it.
