I mentioned Ben Garant earlier this week as the writing partner of Thomas Lennon (pictured above with Garant). Like Lennon, Garant made his way up as part of The State comedy group, then playing a deputy on Reno 911!, and now writing movies that make millions of dollars.
I love the picture above because it’s just two buddies with mustaches who have exploited the fact that people love going to the movies to watch Ben Stiller get into sticky situations.
