SOLDJA! Movieline Welcomes General Manager, Editor in Chief, and Founder of Deadline Hollywood Daily Nikki Finke to MMC Family
Like a Decepticon bulldozer fusing itself to a sun-eviscerating robot colossus with wrecking-ball nuts, Nikki Finke has joined the MMC family. (This metaphor makes more sense if you've seen Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Rest assured, it's highly complimentary.)
To celebrate today's exciting announcement, we sent over the finest Edible Arrangement $7.99-or-less could buy, and received this gracious thank-you e-mail in return:
"I received the equivalent of the GNP of a small country.
I'm now working for a 30-year-old.
I'm a business cougar.
And what the hell is Movieline?"
Oh, Nikki -- you irrepressible mountain lioness, you. Quit licking those paws and come on over here and give us a big puma hug.
UPDATE: To appease concerned readers, let me just make it clear that we'll both be playing in adjoining, but completely independent, sandboxes -- though we may occasionally share shovels.
