Exclusive: An Urgent Message From the Cast of Cougar Town

I initially worried about whether posting the following video would seem overly indulgent. I then let out a loud, prolonged cackle before slapping that embed code in this post.

A little exposition before you watch: The making of this video was triggered in part by news that my Cougar Town guest spot — slated for the show’s season finale — had been postponed until the fall as a result of scheduling conflicts. I know that’s usually code for something sinister, but in this case it’s really true. (Translation: They couldn’t get my trailer adequately tricked out in time.)

Anywhoo, enjoy the little slice of heaven below.

  • Thanks for this! I had a ridiculously huge breakfast and was feeling bloated. This helped me to expel all those extra eggs and bacon.

  • Happy Birthday to us! The only other person I’ve read about in the public sphere that shares the birthday is Suzie, the golden-hearted hooker in Steinbeck’s Sweet Thursday.

  • Umm, that is kind of awesome! I was planning on hiring a sky writer to write HAPPY BIRTHDAY along with a smoke drawn image of a Smurf above the New York City skyline for your birthday, but I guess those Cougar Town people showed me up… Oh well, there is always next year. Happy Birthday!!

  • haha that’s amazing!Happy Birthday! They obviously knew if you were in the Hawaii episode that it would be just too much awesomeness to handle. That is the real reason behind you not being in the season finale.
