Mark Wahlberg Might Sell Your Grandma Some Avon

Avon Man, a long-gestating comedy at 20th Century Fox, is in talks with Mark Wahlberg to tackle the starring role Hugh Jackman bailed on almost two years ago. Still directorless, the Kevin Bisch (Hitch) script is being rewritten by Michael McCullers, who penned both Austin Powers sequels. Just please, Fox, let the gags not simply and repetitiously derive from the notion that Wahlberg is a man and look a man is selling Avon!! This blogger's grandfather used to deliver this blogger's grandmother's Avon sales to many a suburban home, and this blogger's grandfather ruled.
