Since my breakout role on “To Catch A Predator”, I’ve had a journey of self-discovery and decided to be a true actuer by becoming Bi…coastal!
On my recent foray to the supple apple of NYC I immediately blue myself – then headed straight to the East Village. Oddly enough, Blue Man Group was not hiring…
I asked for directions to the nearest bar suitable for an analyst/therapist such as myself, when a tall broad lady took me to the premiere Analrapist spot, but her fee was all the petty cash I had and once my wad was in her strong hands there was no takesie backsies…
…Forward three hours and I’m exhausted, confused, and I found myself begging for hand outs with a sign, “Will Perform For Hand (outs) Jobs.” Luckily, a charming group of actuers, like myself, explained that my sign looked a tad misleading. Boy, were my cheeks blushing (I’ve since retired my chaps)!
Due to their generosity, I simply must share about their production being put up by FringeNYC at The Connelly Theatre (220 E4th St, Manhattan, NY). This August 9th-25th these handsome bachelors are performing “Our Kiki: A Gay Farce,” a comedy about a young gay couple’s struggle with immigration issues. Being a hetero man who’s sexually attracted to his wife, I was a shocked sally to find out gay marriages don’t provide immigration protection! Check out this video to support these up and coming theatre performers!

Herbert Love: Your lips are like a Murphy bed, they don’t take up much space but they’re there when I need them.
Kind of strange that Herbert Love would use the Murphy bed in a pickup line. When I think Murphy bed I think old hotel in Chicago, or tiny apartments in New York, not Orange County.
Check out this old timey video of Charlie Chaplin being bested by a Murphy bed. You have nothing better to do.
You’ve watched the first 3 seasons. You’ve Eaten, Prayed, and Loved for Arrested Development Season 4. You gobbled up all 15 new episodes on Netflix. You’ve even read all the critical reviews (they didn’t like it this time either) – but you’re ready for more. Will there be a fifth season for Arrested Development on Netflix?
I think the answer is a resounding maybe!
Check out this business friendly interview on CNBC with Reed Hastings, CEO Netflix. He says that Arrested Development season 4 was “everything they had hoped” for, and would be on board for Arrested Development season 5 if the “talent would be willing”.
If the do season 5, let’s hope they can get more of that talented cast in the same room at the same time, and don’t have to use hardcore green screen (Lucille Austero Maritime Court scene was hilariously horrible). Except the chicken dance. Green screen chicken dance FTW.
Where is Shuturmurg, India?
For those of you hoping to Eat, Pray, Love – you’ll just have to settle for an Ashram somewhere outside of Dubai, because there is no such place at Shuturmurg, India.
Seven years went by between the cancellation of Arrested Development and the return on Netflix. During this time everyone got older. Some got fatter. Some got thinner. Some lost more hair. Some stayed never nude.
Perhaps the biggest change is Portia de Rossi. There are really two different looks for the Lindsay Bluth character (three if you count the red wig character Cindy Featherbottom), the “long hair kharma seeking” Lindsay, and the “short hair bust your balls” Lindsay. You can check out more of the differences over on Buzzfeed.
The long hair Lindsay looks decidedly creepy – probably on purpose due to Hurwitz and Co. Short hair Lindsay is basically Portia de Rossi’s own real look, and yes, after 7 years she does look a bit different, but doesn’t everyone (except Jeffrey Tambor)?
Tobias Funke: Can I just improv my way out of a marriage?
When you’ve done as much Improv comedy as David Cross has – Tobias sure can.
I was going to post a YouTube clip of David Cross (Tobias Funke!) and Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) doing improv for Whoopi on HBO – but it just got too darn spicy for me to post here. Go look it up yourself!
Instead… he can Improv his way out of this.
The LA Times has a great article on the costumes and wardrobe for the cast of Arrested Development.
I wanted to share the following snippet about Tobias Funke’s Never Nude Cutoffs, which are actually women’s designer cutoff jeans from Neiman Marcus!
Quoted from Adam Tschorn’s LA Times article: New ‘Arrested Development’: All re-dressed up and ready to go
The most iconic piece of apparel in the original series run has to be Tobias’ “never nude” denim cutoffs. Where did you find those?
Costume designer Katie Sparks: Mitch said, “Let’s do some cutoffs for Tobias” [played by David Cross] and — I’ve never told anyone this — I was in Neiman Marcus and saw these cutoffs in the women’s section. They were just low enough to cover everything, but they were short-short and had a little fringe. I thought: ‘Oh, my God — these are hysterical!’ They were $150, and I felt like an idiot for buying them … I wish I could remember the exact brand, but they were definitely designer — Givenchy or something. But they were so perfect because they were cut for women and came so high up they looked like underwear.
So that’s how he ended up wearing women’s cutoff jeans from Neiman Marcus.
