Finney, Cleese in running for Dr. Who role

Albert Finney and John Cleese are front-runners in the race to assume the role of Dr. Who when the cult classic BBC series goes before the big-screen cameras this fall. Bob Clark, who directed the Dan Aykroyd/Gene Hackman Loose Cannons feature that hit screens last weekend, will helm the Hemdale production, and he says all attempts are being made "to make sure 'Who-ees' are happy. We want to be faithful to the spirit of the show, which has been on for 25 years." Portions of the Dr. Who feature will be set in Washington, D.C.
