This one's for Tony:
Warner Bros. is on a roll in Russia with a local version of its 1980s TV hit "Perfect Strangers," featuring two local actors playing reincarnated versions of the show's original central characters Larry and Balki but with the new monikers of Andrei and Ivan.
And this is just the beginning for Warner Bros. International Television as it heads east in a scripted format deal with the Russians that will see its popular sitcoms "Suddenly Susan," "Step by Step" and "Full House" go Cyrillic.
What? No Family Matters? But Urkel transcends cultures!
I can't wait until Ivan shows up on Russian Step by Step as a gay hairstylist.
