Whatever Happened to Bindi Irwin…

It’s been about three and a half years since the death of  Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin (I know it seemed like two years to me) and it struck me the other night, whatever happened to his uber-talented daughter who gained fame after his death via sappy speeches and ridiculous rap songs about jungle animals? Well, no sooner had I asked that question to myself, than gotten the answer. When my wife and I put in the dvd for “The Time Traveler’s Wife” the other night, it would not take me to the dvd menu without watching seven (SEVEN!) movie previews first. Incredulous, I gathered myself and realized I could still manually fast forward through them, but something caught my eye as they whizzed by. Bindi.

What straight-to-dvd movie remake/sequel could she possibly starring in? If you were thinking “Free Willy” give your self a round of applause and dine on some dolphin tonight.

Bindi stars as a young girl trying to help an orca find its was home in “Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove.” Sounds like a Nancy Drew game. Obviously, it looks…amazing. My personal condolences to Beau Bridges who stars as Bindi’s grandfather. I wonder what it’s like at the Bridge’s family party.

Beau: Jeff, great work on “Crazy Heart”. Awesome win at the Oscars.

Jeff: Thanks, Beau. What have you been up to?

Beau: Do you remember Steve Irwin’s annoying daughter Bindi?

Jeff: Dear God, Beau if you needed money that badly you should have just asked.

And scene.

Check out the trailer for “Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove” below. As well as her cringe-worthy appearance on the Today Show.
