JOHN CLEESE: BOND OUT, COMEDY IN

Famed British actor John Cleese is working on a new book to pass his comedic knowledge on to a new generation:

"I'm too old to write new comedy," Cleese, 66, was quoted as saying Monday by The Times newspaper. "I can never do better than `Fawlty Towers,' whatever I do. Now I very much want to teach young talent some rules of the game."
Meanwhile, Cleese is upset to have been "dumped" from the new James Bond prequel:
"Q doesn't appear in Casino Royale but it would have been nice if the producers had the courtesy to telephone me."
Of course, the absence of the modern-day Q from the new "Bond Begins" origin story makes complete sense—since this story takes place before any of the other films. The real mystery is why Dame Judi Densch is in.
