Ever wonder what Ryan Atwood from The OC would do on an airplane full of deadly snakes? Me neither. But according to Jam! Showbiz, Benjamin McKenzie has been cast in Flight 121 (formerly titled, sigh, Snakes on a Plane), a thriller starring Samuel Jackson as a special agent who accidentally opens up a crate of venomous snakes on a Trans-Pacific flight. You just know the flight attendants will get bitchy about that. Mr. McKenzie will play a novice pilot who we’ll assume battles the snakes with overly theatrical eye-darting and clenched-teeth rage.
If any of this sounds familiar, it’s because the story is a complete rip-off of an obscure Saturday Night Live skit (2/7/98) where a pack of cobras kill everyone on an airplane. I imagine, however, that Flight 121 will not feature a long monologue by a snake at its climax. Nevertheless, we’re always happy to see actors from our favorite shows go off and try to make it big in silly movies. Good luck Ben! Don’t forget your floatation device!
