Fr. Bryce Sibley reports that we’re getting ever closer to the long-promised film version of “A Confederacy of Dunces“. That’s the good news. The troubling news is that it looks like they’re considering Will Ferrell for the role of Ignatius Reilly. How can they? Ignatius is fat; Ferrell is tall and slender. Fr. Sibley is right: this is the role Philip Seymour Hoffman was born to play. I hope the good father is offering daily masses for this intention.
