You may remember me from such features as Random Roles, or my oral histories of Battle of the Network Stars and Airplane!

I teared up a bit while reading him talk about his stroke recovery. He’s been in so many things but I’ll always know him for Judging Amy. When he came on the show I had no idea who he was, and I was a little annoyed because he replaced Wendy Makkena and I liked her dynamic with Tyne Daly. Any reluctance I had was Read more

What a great interview! Very happy for him, both that he’s recovering so well and that he’s built his career on such powerful friendships.

I don’t know this guy from Adam and it was still a great read. Especially the inclusion of this: Read more

It’s hilarious because that sounds exactly like something Jerry the character would blithely say as well, while his recollection of a sweet, kind Jason Alexander is the anti-Costanza.

So glad to see this interview, and so glad to see Will’s byline on it! I just love Psych, and Galavant, and Tim seems like such a lovely human being. Excited to watch Psych 2 as soon as I get this whole Peacock thing figured out...

And I said something about it being my first job, and he said [Doing a solid Seinfeld impression.] “Oh, it’s your first job? Congratulations! That’s great! You’re great!” Read more

American Housewife was also pretty great about accommodating his stroke, weaving it effortlessly into the storyline they’d already set up to cover his absence when it first happened.

A lot of Jerry’s reactions come across as pure Ross, and there are certain moments where it feels like he’s actively leaning into the similarity. Read more

I’ve seen this as it was on in the UK a while back and I pretty much agree with everything Will says, it’s not a terrible show by any means but it’s a fairly average one which often fails to deliver on ideas and promise shown.

Also, it’s great to have Will back here doing something else other than Random Roles (though Read more

I beg to differ that Fatal Instinct did not “resonate”.  I have a GIF of Armand Assante dancing to Brown Eyed Girl in red heels that is one of my top 5 “go to GIFs” of all time.  It NEVER FAILS to amuse.

While I was looking after my Bubbie in the nursing home, I would occasionally bring dvds to watch with her. After my aunt suggested she would like watching old TV, I brought a best of Sid Caesar. Her favourite sketch was a parody of This is Your Life in which Carl Reiner’s host picks out a clearly reluctant Caesar

Yeah, Shoop had far better morals/scruples than I would have had in regards to CTS, that’s for sure. Read more

Summer School is one of my favorites anyway. A fantastic cast, a Danny Elfman score, and a devastatingly cute 20-year-old Courtney Thorne-Smith in a wetsuit.

I might have to seek out that 20th anniversary DVD of Summer School just to listen to the commentary track with him and Harmon. Read more

I don’t know what the hell I was doing in a movie theater watching All Of Me at 11 years old, but hey, there I was. So much of it I didn’t understand, but I did know it was funny as shit. One of Steve Martin’s best performances. When he’s walking down the street with half his body being inhabited by himself and the Read more
