Here's the Sunday open line. And in the if-you-can't-toot-your-own-horn-who-will department, somebody just called my attention to a recent Tweet by the redoubtable Sen. Jason Rapert. As somebody else suggested, maybe there's a T-shirt or other branding opportunity in there.

  • Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, and Rob Corddry in "Hot Tub Time Machine 2"

Glenwood, Arkansas native and actor Clark Duke ("The Office," "Hot Tub Time Machine") is slated to write and direct "Arkansas," a new film starring Duke himself alongside Vince Vaughn ("Wedding Crashers," "Old School") and Liam Hensworth Hemsworth (Oops.) of "The Hunger Games".

Deadline includes the following synopsis of the film, a description that's prompting speculation that the film is based on the novel of the same name by John Brandon:

The film follows a pair of low level drug runners in the Dixie Mafia, Kyle (Hemsworth) and Swin (Duke), who live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin Frog (Vaughn), whom they’ve never met. But when a deal goes horribly wrong, deadly consequences are soon to rattle the duo’s routine lives.
