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

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

  • 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.

  • 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!
