Here’s a pitch meeting where I wish I’d been a fly on the wall: Elton John visits ABC and says something like this: ”It’s a sitcom, like Entourage, only instead of a young Hollywood leading man, it’s about a gay, British, middle-aged, over-the-hill rock diva who makes outrageous and wacky demands on his employees and hangers-on. No, it’s not about me, didn’t you hear me say ‘over-the-hill’? It’s called Him & Us. And I’ve got just the actor in mind to play me — I mean, to play the spoiled rocker: it’s the guy who played Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Anthony Stewart Head. I figure if he can defend himself against jaded, demonic, life-draining vampires, he can handle the suits in the music business.”
