Justin Theroux creating cartoon for Fox

According to New York magazine’s Vulture, Jennifer Aniston’s beau Justin Theroux is riding the animation wave.

The actor/writer is the latest to snag a cartoon deal with a major network. (Mindy Kaling and Russell Brand are among the other stars getting animated.) Fox has snapped up Theroux’s script for an untitled half-hour program about a “present-day Archie Bunker type.”

The main character is said to be a cranky left-leaning New Yorker who misses the '90s. Theroux's previous co-writing credits include "Tropic Thunder," "Iron Man 2" and "Rock of Ages."

Which star-powered animated series are you looking forward to?

    Thanks for discussing your ideas here. The other factor is that every time a problem arises with a computer system motherboard, folks should not have some risk with repairing this themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the complete laptop. It's usually safe just to approach the dealer of that laptop for your repair of motherboard. They will have technicians who may have an experience in dealing with mobile computer motherboard difficulties and can have the right diagnosis and execute repairs.

    I don't care what he writes. All I care about is him sitting on my face. I'd love to sniff a pair of his white brown stained briefs.

      Way to proclaim your idiocy, Snotty. Don't worry, I hear there's another Transformer movie in the pipeline for you.
