How is Betty White not in this movie? From the Toronto Sun:

Hollywood old-timers Ernest Borgnine and Mickey Rooney have teamed up for a wacky new movie about a group of pensioners who turn their nursing home into a nightclub. The two nonagenarians will play roommates and team up with former M*A*S*H star Sally Kellerman, Paul Sorvino and filmmaker Ron Howard’s father Rance in Night Club, the first film by realtor-turned-moviemaker Larry Delrose’s Italian American Films group. The star-studded movie will also feature American Pie actress Natasha Lyonne and Clint Eastwood’s Gran Turino neighbour Ahney Her.

Delrose tells WENN, “The film presents the idea that one is never too young or too old to find inspiration and meaning in life.

Just kidding, I know why she’s not in this movie: because they wouldn’t LET her be in this movie. Sorry, Betty White. This movie is for professional actors and actresses only (and Natasha Lyonne), not Internet memes. Let’s see you MySpace your way out of this one! (Thanks for the tip, NotActuallyBettyWhite.)

  1. How is Gabe not in this movie.

    Seriously, forget all these baby stories, we need more stories about nonagenarians.

  2. Nightclub nursing home? Sign me up!

  3. I’m not sure what sells me more: Ron Howard’s father or “realtor-turned-moviemaker”

  4. Natasha Lyonne?! HAHAHAHAHAHA

    I thought she was still in jail for fucking up Michael Rapaport’s apartment or something…

  5. Somehow I feel Ben Still is going to be playing the antagonist club owner across the street.

  6. That synopsis is seriously the weirdest thing I have ever read.

  7. “Night Club” Trailer, You Guys

  8. better start filming before it’s too late

    • I’m also wondering how they’ll be able to film any scenes that take place after dark what with all the stars of the movie being in bed by 7 pm. I just don’t see a movie about a night club in a nursing home that is only open until 5 pm being too exciting. It seems a lot like a movie about an ordinary nursing home to me.

  9. The first rule of Night Club is that you don’t talk about Night Club.
    The second rule of Night Club is where am I? Who are you people? I need to go home.

  10. The more pressing question on my mind is: how is the title of this movie not “Old Dongs”. Wasted crossover opportunity, Hollywood!

  11. Yessssssss this may be my first posted tip.

    Your move, Actual Betty White.

  12. Never mind Betty White, call me when this movie features Loretta Swit!

  13. Betty White

  14. I look forward to the competing version of this that stars Mel Brooks and Cloris Leachman.

  15. Clubbin’ Old Men?

  16. I seriously did not know either of these people was still alive.

  17. Old people are funny because they used to be human.
