Still not dead career-wise nor literally, toothy Mormon Jon Heder has just signed on to star in Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede. The script is based on the Bradley Denton sci-fi comedy novel, and Heder will play Oliver Vale, a character Variety describes as "an average geek whose uneventful life changes when Buddy Holly turns up on every TV channel and declares that Vale is the only one who understands why this is happening -- which causes Vale to be pursued by a mob of disguised aliens." Finally, a film to get sci-fi fanatics and Buddy Holly-is-still-alive conspiracy theorists in the same room to have a crazy, obsessive dialogue. We've needed this for too long.
