Kevin James

Kevin James

Kevin James

Born April 26, 1965

Kevin James is a truly funny guy. He has played a variety of roles and he seems to be able to play just about any role, some of which we will dig into below. He is very deft at physical humor but then you watch him act and emote and he is a very talented as an actor.

Noteworthy

  • Hitch – This was the first movie that I remember Kevin James in. He was fantastic in this role. In particular, the training montage with Will Smith is one of the funniest things that Will Smith has been involved in, in a long time.
  • The King of Queens – Doug Heffernan, as a character, ran across three different shows. Doug was the springboard for Kevin James onto the large screen and really gave a jolt to his career. Add Leah Remini to this and it is no wonder that James is as big a star as he is.
  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry – Kevin James and Adam Sandler are box office gold. Having them marry each other for health benefits – genius. Such a funny thought provoking movie.
  • Paul Blart: Mall Cop – Bag on this movie all you want. They had me when he slid across the floor and didn’t quite make it to cover. Laughed my ass off.
  • Here Comes the Boom – A much more trim Kevin James learning to MMA fight to save a program in his school. Bizarre plot great flick. Loved it.

There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.

I Miss My Nintendo 64

I miss my Nintendo 64. I picked mine up while I was in college. Worked n and off for a pool and spa place and earned one for my troubles. Cash would have been very cool but I think I got way more entertainment out of the N64 over time than I ever would have from the...

Matthew Gray Gubler

Matthew Gray Gubler Born March 9, 1980   Matthew Gray Gubler has long been one of my favorite characters on Criminal Minds. There is something about the character of Spencer Reid, the brains, the wit, the naivete - that makes the character work. But Gubler is a lot...

Geena Davis

Geena Davis - Born January 21, 1956 I love and admire Genna Davis. She is an amazing actress and thoughtful human being, and one of those people that I think it would be fun to break-bread with. Just picking her brain on the topics of the day would be mind-blowing....
Cedric the Entertainer

Cedric the Entertainer

Cedric the Entertainer

Born April 24, 1964

Cedric the Entertainer is one of the funniest people on the planet. Since his stand-up days, I have been following his career and catching him everywhere that I can.

Noteworthy

  • The Original Kings of Comedy – Cedric the Entertainer, Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey, and DL Hughley. This is still one of the best stand-up special of all time.
  • Barbershop – Cedric is Eddie. Barbershop is awesome and worth a re-watch every couple of years.
  • The Honeymooners – Who else can take Gleason’s place in this reboot… that is all I am asking.

We as comics do want an immediate response from the audience. It’s really quiet on the set, and there are only the producers, and the director, so a comic is looking for someone to give a reaction, even if it is the camera guy.

-Cedric the Entertainer

Johnny Knoxville

Johnny Knoxville Born March 11, 1971   Johnny Knoxville is one of my favorite celebrities. He is his own person. He stays out of the bullshit, for the most part, and just does his own thing. he makes unique choices and again seems to be his own person in a society of...

Good Riddance 2016

Good Riddance 2016 From a pop-culture perspective, 2016 sucked. We lost icon after icon in 2016 and at this point as I reflect on the year, it is really what I am focused on. Below is a brief list of some of the losses that stuck out to me. It is not all inclusive and...
Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis

Born April 18, 1953

Rick Moranis has been a part of my Geeks World for as long as I can remember. From Ghostbusters to Spaceballs and beyond he has been a part of some of the biggest geek-fests in the world. I miss Rick Moranis but I get the fact that he is a single dad now and raising kids.

Noteworthy

  • Ghostbusters – This is one of my favorite comedies of all time. Moranis plays one of those secondary roles that is so outstanding that the movie would not have worked without him in it.
  • Little Shop of Horrors – Seymour is one of the roles that I would love to play on stage. Rick Moranis made me fall in love with this character.
  • Spaceballs – Moranis as Dark Helmet – “And I see your Schwartz is as big as mine…”
  • Honey, I Shrunk the Kids – Completely dug this movie as a kid. Liked all of the spin-offs too.
  • Splitting Heirs – Here is one you might not be familiar with. Moranis and Monty Python alum Eric Idle as kids switched at birth. Holy crap it is a funny movie.

I’m a single parent, and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn’t miss it.

Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence

Born April 16, 1965

I first remember Martin Lawrence as a stand-up comedian. After that, he made the move to the small screen and then to movies. The whole time, Lawrence has kept his sense of humor, his sense of self and he has continued to turn out projects that everyone can enjoy.

Noteworthy

  • Bad Boys – The first one is still the best. Will Smith and Martin Larence pull of the action flick buddy cop movie without any problems.
  • Martin – This self-titled TV series was a huge success and ran for 132 episodes.
  • Life – Lawrence teams with Eddie Murphy in this prison comedy that had a lot of heart and passion.
  • Big Momma’s House – Lawrence is undercover as Big Momma. Gender-bending all the way to the bank.
  • Open Season – Lawrence voices Boog the Bear opposite Ashton Kutcher’s Elliot the Deer. I am going to have to watch this again soon now.

You might see some of the movies that I’m in where there are shades of drama or whatever, but for the most part, I don’t get offered serious roles.

-Martin Lawrence

I Hate John Cena

Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood - Born January 28, 1981 Elijah Wood, Frodo to some, Noteworthy The Good Son - This might have been one of the first movies that I remember Elijah Wood in. He played the protagonist to the very evil Macaulay Culkin. Love this movie. If it is not in your...
Caroline Rhea

Caroline Rhea

Caroline Rhea

Born April 13, 1964

So I have a bit of a crush on Caroline Rhea. It is not only her looks, it is her wit, and her intelligence. Comedians have to be smart to be funny in my book and she certainly fits that bill.

Noteworthy

  • Sabrina, the Teenage Witch – 143 episodes as Hilda Spellman. She was the only reason that I watched this show. Again, big crush on Caroline Rhea.
  • Phineas & Ferb – Rhea has provided voices for one of the best new cartoons on TV across 123 episodes. Most notably she is the voice of Linda Flynn-Fletcher.
  • Christmas with the Kranks – She is part of this much loved Christmas movie. She plays Candi part of the neighborhood that has turned on Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis.

I’m very impressed by St. Patrick’s. Another deity to me is definitely Saks Fifth Avenue. Someone told me that when they go to Vermont, they feel like they’re home. I’m that way at Saks.

-Caroline Rhea

Christopher Walken

Christopher Walken Born March 31, 1943   Christopher Walken is one of those actors that you look for in a movie, that you hope will pop up in a cameo for no good reason. Walken improves any film he makes an appearance in. His quirky nature, his odd delivery of lines...
