Oh God, oh man, oh God, oh man, O’Neal. Ryan O’Neal, known best for his roles in Love Story and Barry Lyndon, as well as his incestuous, funereal flirting techniques, is penning a book that will detail his 30-year relationship with the late Farrah Fawcett. Scheduled for spring 2012, it is tentatively titled Past Imperfect, which, while being a clever pun, is also one of the three most used book titles in the history of publishing. (For the record, the others are “My Life” and “Dictionary.”) O’Neal promises to cover everything from their first meeting in 1979 to Fawcett’s death in 2009, and the turbulent ups and downs in between. He’ll also discuss his relationship with his daughter Tatum, from the “Aww, how cute!” of Paper Moon to the “Oh, how unfortunate” of just about everything else. The two of them will be reuniting on-screen this summer in Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neals.
