Trevor Noah IS…”The President’s Analyst?”

James Coburn was the quintessence of action pic comic cool in the ’60, “In Like Flynt” and the hippy trippy “The President’s Analyst” were emblematic of that.

So tell me what shocking about this pitch.

Some Obama speech writer and image manager is scripting a remake of “The President’s Analyst.” That 1960s comically paranoid thriller offered us the phone company as the Big Villains out to Rule the World.

Yeah, that changed.

And Paramount wants Trevor Noah to star in it.

I can totally see it. He’s got this hip shrink vibe. And hey, anything to keep him from starting every sentence, “Last summer, in band camp (in South Africa).”
