Dennis Hopper to Star in ‘Crash!’

Unfortunately, it’s not the one with the Cronenbergian car sex. Word came today that easy rider Dennis Hopper has signed on to star in Starz’s new series based on the Paul Haggis vehicle (!) and recent Oscar behemoth. Featuring altogether new characters—with altogether new perfectly-honed prejudice!—the 13-episode adaptation also stars people we’ve never heard of and someone from “Jericho.” Hopper plays Ben, a music producer looking for his big career crescendo. Now we’re worried. Anyone remember Cedric the Entertainer in Be Cool? Precisely.
