Celebrity Justice League

So, did you catch this story about House saving Borat from an extreme beat-down?

It made me wonder, what would be a good group of characters/celebrities to form a vigilante anti-crime league? For the purposes of this exercise, I reserve the right to blur the lines between character and celebrity, freely picking and choosing abilities and characteristics. For entertainment purposes only.

Here's my list so far for the Celebrity Justice League

Hero
Abilities
Hugh Laurie
Fist fighting, Detective Skills,
Condescension Ray
Keifer Sutherland
Tree-Diving , Increased Stamina when ingesting
inebriating substances, General Badassery
Chuck Norris
Too many to list
Samuel L. Jackson
Steely resolve, Can charm large snakes,
Can freeze 2d10 meters2 area with his voice

Of course, there's going to have to be a celebrity Legion of Doom. I'm thinking that one starts out with O.J. Simpson and Robert Blake.

I'm open to suggestions for additions to the Celebrity Justice League and the Celebrity Legion of Doom. Who do you think needs to be in there?

We can get out of hand here but after the 2 you mention I'd list:

Britney Spears - For generating apathay in the name of entertainment.

Macgyver for his ability to help out in a pinch using commonly available materials.

And the members of the A-Team for the way they can spray bullets around town and take out an army without killing a single person. That will help avoid unwanted media attention.

Oh good ones Mike. Gotta have MacGyver. how about Jennifer Garner / Sidney for those times when you need someone to go undercover? And Sarah Michelle Gellar / Buffy to team up with Chuck Norris in kicking ass.

Family Guy's Adam West. His power? Projectile confusion.

Though he may sign up to be on one side or the other, no one really knows what side he is on.

The problem with hugh Laurie is you might get Bertie instead of House and that wouldn't be a good thing. Now if you got Stephen Fry AND Hugh Laurie!

What Ho!

That can be his secret weakness; liquor turns him into Bertie Wooster. We have to come up with weaknesses for the other heroes.

Another suggestion: Hong Kong Phooey, complete with his sidekick Spot and the important filing cabinet. They could be handy for that undercover work in Chinatown.

Weakness: Two dimensional, but that doesn't seem to stop our President from being a member of the Celebrity Legion of Doom.

jessica alba should be the token hot chick mainly for her dark angel-ery. Smart, attractive and cat attributes...can't be beat.

For Legion of Doom I suggest Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes who super-evil power it to mutate into TomKat a large attention hogging liger who people have more pity than fear for. TomKat is basically that kid that hangs with the cool kids just so they can make fun of them.

Oh and Paul Walsh, just 'cause I need more reasons to talk about him.
