Cute Clones

March 5, 2009

cloned-organ-transplants-1If you heart Keira Knightly’s guts — or even if you hate her guts — you’ll be seeing more of them now that she’s agreed to star in Never Let Me Go, a creepy-sounding movie about boarding school kids who learn they are clones created for use as organ donors. Is organ cloning really possible, even if not through nubile prep schoolers? Well, sort of, via therapeutic cloning and stem cells. [Variety via New York magazine]

    Wasn’t that the premise of the Island with Ewan McGregor and Scarlet Johansson?

    shore was! apparently hollywood’s not exactly big on originality. and hey, that was waaaaaay back in 2005. everyone will have forgotten whenever this new one comes out.

  3. BikerPuppy Says:

    Sure they will. Maybe they can use some of your guts in the movie?

    that would be fabulous. i can picture it already: keira “kidney” knightley will try to pull a switcheroo with an i heart guts plushie. just stick the plush in a cooler (face-down, of course, that happy face will give it all away), add some rocks for weight, make yourself a pretend scar, claim self-administered kidney removal and presto!

  5. BikerPuppy Says:

    The best part would be when the transplant doctor turns it over and the plushie smiles at him!

    BTW, love your blog. Very quirky and geeky. Like me. 🙂
