Elizabeth Banks is the white/female Anthony Anderson. She can be seen in almost any movie or TV show that has come out in the last 10 years. I once went to a movie where she appeared in 3 previews back-to-back-to-back. One was a political drama, one a romantic comedy,and the last was a horror film.
Matthew McConaughey is no stranger to the steesh, as we’ve seen in the past here and here. And now, he’s back with another dandy as the 2012 version of Rust Cohle in HBO’s wonderfully-creepy new show True Detective. If you haven’t watched this show yet, it’s worth it just to see him make those little men out of his beer cans.
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.
David Krumholtz has appeared in 69 movies and tv shows since his debut in the 1993 Michael J. Fox movie Life With Mikey. Among other things, he was in The Santa Clause, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and was even the lead in the show Numb3rs that lasted 6 seasons on CBS. Still, I remember him as Barry Corman “The Cereal King” from his first role. Sure he was kind of a jerk, but you have to respect any child that wears a scarf.
Charlie Hofheimer plays Peggy Olsen’s boyfriend, Abe Drexler on Mad Men. He is a journalist/writer who basically just lives off Peggy. She just bought an apartment and he’s doing “some light remodeling.” I would do that for a free place to live. Hell, I had to do some light remodeling when I moved into my current apartment, like removing the door knob from my closet door and putting it on my roommate’s bedroom door because it was missing a knob. I wonder what kind of knob problems Abe is dealing with?
Ben Feldman plays Michael Ginsberg on AMC’s Mad Men. Season 6 of Mad Men takes place in 1968 and as far as I can tell there was a Mustache Boom that year. Also it doesn’t really seem like people had to worry about matching their clothes, as evidence in the above picture. In the last episode a guy was wearing a sweater-turtleneck with a cardigan sweater over it. The double sweater is almost impossible to get away with these days.
I guess if something gets popular enough porn is going to parody it. Porks and Recreation does just that to Parks and Recreation. I didn’t watch the trailer because I’m at work and I want to be able to come back tomorrow, but you can get it here.
I don’t think I’d even care to watch it. It’s a damn shame that the merging of Ron Swanson and pornography couldn’t even yield a real mustache.
It once felt like it would never get here, but in reality time is just going at the same rate for ever so only a dummy would think that it would never get here. Anyway, we’ll get us some fresh Tobias coming our way on May 26th.
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.
