Controversial Jewish comedienne Sarah Silverman has entered negotiations for a new Seth MacFarlane production of a comedy-western titled “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Silverman would play a Bible-thumping lady of the night, who tries to keep her job and her fiancée (played by Giovanni Ribisi).
The Inquisitr, where I found this item, was sure to mention Sarah’s give and take with our own Rabbi Yaakov Rosenblatt last fall, as well as her father’s unabashed talkback entry.
“Sarah Silverman and religion have proven a potent cocktail in recent history, so it’s no surprise that she would take a part like this,” argues The Inquisitr.
Makes perfect sense to me.
The new movie shoot is starting this spring. MacFarlane’s last movie, Ted, about a foul mouthed Teddy bear, grossed more than $545 million at the box office.
Happy Bible thumping.Yori Yanover
