No joke: Monty Python are reuniting!
The five surviving members of the famed British cult comedy group – John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Eric Idle – are preparing to make a comeback almost 45 years since their first TV shows together.
"We're getting together and putting on a show – it's real," Jones confirmed to the BBC early Tuesday. "I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"

Don't glorify Heath Ledger as another iconic Hollywood burnout, says the director of his last movie.
Terry Gilliam – who worked with Ledger just days before the January tragedy – says, "When he died, there were all these nonsensical stories coming out about Heath Ledger, James Dean and River Phoenix, all destroyed by the system."
But, in a tribute published in Britain's Observer Magazine, Gilliam insists the actor's demise was simply "an absurd accident." (His death was ruled an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.)
