    Steve Martin and Donald Duck to be featured in 50th exhibit at the Opera House

    http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la...,7788603.story


    In addition to Buzz Lightyear, the park also will temporarily replace "Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln" with "Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years" — exhibits and a film presentation hosted by Steve Martin and Donald Duck.

    The Main Street attraction also will feature recently uncovered film footage from opening day as well as a model of how the park appeared in 1955.

    As long as I can watch the time lapse film of Disneyland being built, I'll be happy.

    Hey I love Steve and Donald. Might be descent...
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Steve Martin is not a B-list celeb. At least he didn't sink to doing tv like your avatar Kiefer- now him hosting this would be lame, but Steve Martin will be entertaining.

    Ya, I loved his little bit in Fantasia 2000. People tend to underestimate Martin. I think he's a comic genious.

    Don't start ripping on Kiefer. He's got more cool in the fingernail of his left hand pinky finger than Steve Martin has in his body... 24 is a great show, and a lot of celebs are going back to TV these days. Besides, I believe Steve did several different TV shows...

    Not that I don't like Steve Martin, he has been hilarious in some of his movies (3 Amigos is one of my favs), and I was jumping into this thread to object to him being referred to as "B-List"... On the other hand, he is remaking The Pink Panther, and that is a travesty. No one can compete with the late, great Sellers...

    I like Kiefer too, don't get me wrong and 24 is amazing, but Steve Martin is a comic genius and deserves far more respect. I don't think is portrayl of the inspector in "Pink Panther" will try to top or mirror the great Peter Sellers- the two men are very different.

    I hope not. I loved the originals.

    I think Steve Martin gets the most respect of any of his previous SNL crew. He's certainly has more success, and can play a wider range of parts. I still love him in Little Shop of Horrors! He was my favorite host, along with Jones, in Fantasia 2000. I'd love to see him do more Disney stuff in the future...

    I think Steve Martin actually use to work at Disneyland as a CM when he was in his teens or early twenties. I think there are few comedians out there that could pull something off like this. He is a perfect fit for Disneyland.

    Steve Martin a B-lister?! Hardly!

    And as others have pointed out in this thread, yes the one-time Garden Grove resident did work at Disneyland, in the Magic Shop on Main St (did they sell rubber chickens or fake arrows-through-the-head there?). There's also a longtime rumor that he was a Jungle Cruise skipper; the rumor was circulated to the point that even some CMs thought it was true (I say that because my brother used to work in Adventureland and Frontierland, including Jungle Cruise, and he used to tell me that the Wild and Crazy Guy was a former Cruiser.) It's understandable, because the role of the skipper is obviously akin to a stand-up comedian, but not true.

    Wow, that was a long p-graph, sorry guys! Just wanted to voice mine about that great white-haired talent. B-lister? Pshhhhttttttt!!!
