Tim Burton Hoffa
Tim Burton didn't have a great weekend, with his stop-motion animated "Frankenweenie" opening on 3000 screens to a paltry $11 million. So perhaps he'll want to look back on some happier times to cheer him up...

The interwebs has brought forth a pretty nice behind-the-scenes snippet from Danny DeVito's 1992 directorial effort "Hoffa" about the infamous gangster. What you might not know about the movie is that DeVito roped in his "Batman Returns" director Burton for an onscreen cameo. As a dead guy....because, obviously. It's a pretty playful peek behind-the-scenes and it's pretty awesome for Burton to devote his time to what is essentially a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment. The pair would go on to work together on two more pictures: "Mars Attacks!" and "Big Fish." Give it a whirl below. [io9]

    Is that John C. Reilly chilling in the BG eating a danish?

    Well based on people treating this tidbit like some new discovery, I guess I can safely conclude that I'm one of the only people who owns Hoffa on DVD, because this video is on it and the DVD was released quite a while ago.
