Few shows are as outrageously funny as Curb Your Enthusiasm, and even though it’s been 6 years to the day since the show last aired, it’s clear that nothing has changed. Curb has aged gracefully, and funny is funny, so I can’t imagine the time off equaling any kind of drop in quality. Plus, our best friend Bryan Cranston joined the cast as Larry’s therapist! Curb premieres Sunday, October 1st.
Trumbo follows famed screenwriter James Dalton Trumbo, played by Cranston, while he was blacklisted in Hollywood. For those of you who don;t know about the “blacklist”, here’s a little background into this time in America. Back when our country was stirring with the paranoia of communism there was something called the “blacklist”. This “blacklist” denied any work to the person on it, so you could see how this could put a damper in the life of someone on it. Trumbo is the story of James Trumbo’s work while on the blacklist.
Alongside Cranston is a cast I can only describe as delightful. Louis CK, Helen Mirren, Diane Lane and John Goodman to name a few. I plan on seeing this at a local theater sometime next week. If it’s playing near you I suggest you do the same.
PS – Ryan and I were going to see this movie regardless of what the trailer and reviews showed. Gotta support our good buddy Bry.
Comic-Con Wrap Up: If You Ask Bryan Cranston A Question, His Answer Might Include Having Sex With Your Mother
This kid thought he was going to have his shining moment, asking Bryan Cranston a question at Comic-Con. While it was a pretty poor question, I can honestly say I did not expect that answer. Albuquerque, New Mexico isn’t exactly Barcelona, Spain, so I’m not sure what Bryan Cranston was supposed to say here. If I had any advice for that kid, it’d be to get really drunk, walk two hours back to your friends apartment and then silently and awkwardly approach Bryan Cranston. That’s how you become best friends.
Amazing. Perfect. Funny. Tantalizing. Groundbreaking. I really just love everything this guy does because everything he does is great. Whether it’s winning an Emmy, playing a sleaze ball pawn shop owner or impersonating all time historic baseball moments as part of a fictional one man show, he always hits it out of park (pun intended). If you didn’t laugh when he went full method is his black turtleneck studying Bugs Bunny and then threw the fake baseball into the audience then you are a thief of joy. And he is a dead ringer for Wade Boggs when he wears the Sox/Yankees uniforms. Also, did I mention we’re best friends?
There’s just something about Bryan Cranston wearing a gas mask that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Love it. Need more of it.
