While the clucking chickens on The View don’t really matter given how stale they are, their less-than-revealing comments and far-left stances are so annoying that any news of even one of them being gone, and just for a bit, is good news for those of us who prefer not to get migraines when we check Twitter and see a clip of The View.
Luckily, Joy Behar just made a big announcement about Whoopi Goldberg, the Holocaust-minimising co-host who only recently returned from brief exile following her Holocaust commentary.
According to Behar, Whoopi will be absent for a while because she’s filming a movie. While it’s not great that Whoopi will be in the culture in general because of her film role, it at least means that one of View’s left-most presenters (and that’s saying a lot) is off the air for a while.
When asked about this, Behar said:
“In case you’re wondering where is Whoopi, the girl has a movie she’s filming.
“And she’ll come back when she’s done whatever she’s doing. So she’s gone for a while.”
“Gone for a while” isn’t nearly as good as “Gone for good,” but it’s still better than her showing up on the show and doing her best every time she opens it, far to Karl’s left Marx and AOCs spawn to appear mouth.
And which movie decided to bring Whoopi on board? The Hollywood Reporter provides some context on this question, saying:
“Amazon Studios’ series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys has added Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg to its cast.
“[…]Goldberg will pay Bird Woman, the god of birds and one of the main antagonists of the story. She and the other newly cast actors will play the gods that make up the world before time – a place where the animals are gods who still walk and is filled with beauty, magic and danger.
“Kae-Kazim will play Tiger, a dangerous enemy of Anansi and his bloodline. Ighodaro plays Lion, who is proud and noble and has no time for Anansi. Noble plays Elephant, who is old and wise and hates Anansi. Witter-Johnson plays Snake, who also hates Anansi. Gilet will play Monkey, who is afraid of Anansi and has a very short attention span.”
Somehow this movie sounds even less enticing than the average episode of The View, if only because The View is shorter and so full of fun soundbites to mercilessly mock.
However, Goldberg seemed interested in the project for reasons other than money. Discussing the role and the film, she said: “I’ve been a fan of this book for a very long time and when Neil Gaiman told me it was going to be brought to the big screen I did everything I could to be a part of it and help bring the people of Anansi and to draw attention to all its magic.”
It’s a movie I won’t watch, but at least it takes the most radical The View host for a while.
