Pee-wee Herman (né Paul Reubens) has had more aborted comebacks than Mickey Rourke (remember Mystery Men?), but things finally seem to be going his way following news that the character will headline a new Judd Apatow movie and star in his very own Broadway show. Pee-wee has even scored that most precious piece of cultural currency: a Huffington Post blog about Dancing With the Stars. It turns out the Schwinn-riding '80s icon is a fan. A new fan, but a fan nonetheless. Enthuses Herman:

Is there anything these people don't bedazzle EVERYTHING. I LOVED it all. The Fantastic Mr. Fox, the Quarterback with the 71 children, the hot lady from The Hills, the kid from Cory in the House, my dear friend, the Hoff, and Mrs. Brady. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Did I mention I LOVE Dancing With the Stars? I never heard of it until yesterday. Now my life seems different.

So does ours.
