Well this is pretty great. There is a new Arrested Development promotion out called Insert Me Anywhere and it features videos and pictures of Tobias Fünke (David Cross) in front of a green screen doing different stock characters for James Cameron to use in future movies. The list of characters include Cowpoke, Motorcycle Ruffian, Big Man on Campus (pictured above), along with a few more.
There are hours of fun to be had on this site. I wish I knew anything about editing video because there’s some opportunity there to get him in some fun situations. I had to settle for some photoshopping. Here’s Tobias’ Big Man on Campus character not giving a shit about the Saved by the Bell crew’s smashed up car:
Comedian and podcaster Marc Maron has a new show on Friday nights on IFC called Maron that has been on a for a few weeks. I was able to catch up on it this weekend and to my delight got to see both Maron and fellow comedian Dave Foley with a couple of nice steeshes.
Maron, much like Louis C.K.’s Louie, follows a fictionalized Maron. Even though it’s not as good as the old shows on the TGIF lineup, it pretty good entertainment for a Friday night show.
Allan Arbus was a photography and actor, best known for playing Major Sidney Freedman on M*A*S*H. The New York Times described his character by saying, “He treated wounds of the psyche much as Capt. Hawkeye Pierce treated surgery patients: with a never-ending string of zingers.” He’s probably glad he was unable to read that. Rest in peace and rest in steesh.
Louis Zorich is an actor, probably most recognizable to you for playing Pete in The Muppets Take Manhattan or Paul Reiser’s dad in Mad About You, depending on if you like great movies or bad TV shows. Here’s Pete giving Kermit the Frog a life lesson:
This is the first thing I’ve felt compelled to post in a while. William Daniels will reportedly be a part of the Girl Meets World pilot. No word yet if that means Mr. Feeny will be on the much-anticipated reprise of Boy Meets World, but we can all say some prayers. I’d like to imagine that William saw all the hype about the new show and simply faxed, “I’m back” to Michael Jacobs.
Adam Driver is a former United States Marine and current Television and film actor. He appears on the HBO series Girls as Adam Sackler (haha). Girls is a pretty good show but for my money, the guys are Girls are the best. I like Adam because it’s nice to see someone in their 20’s that doesn’t look out of place with a steesh or like he is trying too hard.
Daft Punk placed an ad during last week’s SNL. It contained a 15 second clip of new music. Some guy looped the 15 seconds into a 10 minute recording. Some genius added a loop to Ron Swanson dancing and suddenly it’s CAN’T MISS stuff. Enjoy:
Peter Dinklage, or “The Dink” as I assume his friends call him, is an actor who was in a pretty good movie called The Station Agent in 2003. He was also in Elf. Um yeah, he was in 30 Rock. He is in Game of Thrones. I don’t have much to say about him, as you can tell. I just wanted to say “the dink”.
Christoph Waltz hosted SNL last weekend. During the monologue they pranced out a number of characters meant to make fun of Waltz’s native Austria, one of which was Casual Hitler played by Taran Killam.
Casual Hitler is probably very offensive to a lot of people, but it can’t be more offensive than some of the movies Taran (who is very funny) was in before getting on to SNL, like Big Fat Liar or Epic Movie.
First, I apologize for the title of this post. It’s gross in that rashes are gross and also just a horrible joke. Not even close to funny. So, I’M SORRY.
Next, I am really starting to get excited about seeing Jim Rash as Dean Pelton tonight. He is really funny and makes me feel uncomfortable, which I think is a good thing because I’ve heard a lot of girl say the same thing about me.
I was watching Seinfeld last night and couldn’t stop thinking about how much I like Jerry Stiller. Between Frank Costanza on Seinfeld and Arthur Spooner on King of Queens, he has brought me an awful lot of joy.
