    Could be good. I loved him in Samantha Who?

  2. Kate says:

    Love him! I hope this works for him! I was sad Samantha Who and What About Brian got cancelled.

  3. mgb says:

    He was excellent in the movie Sorority Boys too, also starring Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville’s Lex Luthor). Raunchy hilarity with an actual story!

  4. amy says:

    He was hilarious in “Samantha Who” (as was everyone else in the cast). Good luck to him with this.

  5. Patrick says:

    Loved him in both Samantha Who and What About Brian – more than I thought I would actually! Dude deserves a show that isn’t whacked when it’s getting good, fingers crossed for him.

  6. Kate says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD NEWS! Just bring back Samantha Who instead! Should never have been cancelled, was only cancelled becasue it was getting ‘too expensive’ but then they brought ‘Hank’ on ABC instead! Terrible idea! Ok yes i do love him and ai cant wait to see this new show but still!
