Whatever happened to Rooster Cogburn?

Have you ever wondered whatever happened to Jeff Bridges’ Rooster Cogburn after his death, revealed at the end of 2010’s True Grit? It appears that Rooster gets his eye fixed, gets a shave and joins the R.I.P.D.

I mean, it’s the same, right? Same accent … same style …

Speaking of same, isn’t this movie, like, the exact same premise as Men In Black … except with dead people instead of aliens?

Sure, I know they aren’t EXACTLY the same, though, ironically, they both started as comic books. Ryan Reynolds is no Will Smith (or vice-versa?). Mary Louise Parker is no Emma Thompson (and certainly no Rip Torn). Does Hollywood really expect us to feed on this same recycled stuff over and over and over? I mean, how can this movie possibly be any different?

I guess I’ll have to go see it and find out.
