(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) This week: why a man who professionally wears a bucket on his head deserves your respect?

disney put its spin on the beloved cartoon series george of the jungle with this live action film adaptation – starring brendan fraser as the titular tarzan-esque character.

after a plane carrying him crashed into the african jungle when he was a child george has grown up into a happy but simple man of the wild – hanging out with animals including the talking monkey ape (cleese) whilst trying to avoid swinging from vines into trees as is his tendency.

the hapless hero meets rich holidaymaker ursula stanhope (mann) when she gets lost on safari and begins to develop feelings for her. but that doesn’t sit well with ursula’s dastardly fiancé lyle van der groot (haden church) who becomes convinced that george is a savage and a menace to his fellow humans.

starring: brendan fraser leslie mann thomas haden church john cleese richard roundtree

love connection

zach braff portrayed one of the more memorable sitcom characters from the noughties playing goofball medic john ‘jd’ dorian on scrubs from 2001 to 2010.

lupita meanwhile has been wowing hollywood of late with the kenyan actress winning the best supporting actress oscar for 12 years a slave and people magazine’s most beautiful woman award in the past few months alone.

now that she’s broken through in the states the 31-year-old yale school of drama graduate is living in new york – which conveniently is right next to zach’s native new jersey which he chronicled in the 2004 movie garden state.

so will this beloved couple be-loved up before too long…?
