Fake Fatal Crash

Who Gets the Lead?

2/28/2008 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Fact: After a quiet dinner, Martin Short, Matthew Broderick, Eugene Levy and two others cram into a car and head home in high spirits. Fiction: On the way home, they all perish in a car accident. Question: Who would get top billing on the nightly newscast?

Arguments: Mr. Sarah Jessica Parker Matthew Broderick had an iconic hit, but it was 22 years ago. Eugene Levy has been in a billion movies, but only as a supporting actor. Martin Short killed on SNL, but he should have been killed for Jiminy Glick.

Talk amongst yourselves.

Buehler? Buehler? Buehler?

How come that wasn't suggested as one of the Top 100 movie lines? That's a crack up - of course you have to sound as droll as Ben Stein as you do it.

Martin Short because he's Canadian and we all know Americans have no sense of humour.

Yes, it would be Matthew. He killed two women driving recklessly in Ireland back in '87 when he was engaged to Jennifer Grey. She covered for him by saying she didn't remember anything about the accident. After receiving a whopping $175 fine, Matt famously dumped Jennifer for Helen Hunt.

How about this: "Three people who were not Britney, Paris or Lindsey were killed in a car wreck. TMZ is still trying to identify the three but evidentally no one really cared."

This is wrong in so many ways. Who on the TMZ came up with this? Can't believe they even posted it but then again it must be a slow news day.
