My Hollywood Reporter Emmy Campaign Video for Don Cheadle
The Hollywood Reporter asked me to stop by and make a short video to support Don Cheadle for his Best Actor in a Comedy Series (House of Lies) Emmy nomination. They wanted it to be sweet and sincere like the actors’ videos before me. I said I would only do the video if they let me say/do whatever I wanted. They agreed. This is what followed.

DON CHEADLE FOR LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES!!!!!! HOUSE OF LIES!!!
Thank you to the Hollywood Reporter for being cool with me being an idiot.

Runner, Runner, Working Class Hero, Bob’s Burgers, Better Living Through Chemistry
I’ll be acting/lending my voice to a few more projects before we get back to filming House of Lies and Parks and Rec- I just wrapped a movie called Better Living Through Chemistry with the amazing Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde and Ray Liotta. I have a tiny role in the awesome movie Runner, Runner with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck. I’ll be lending my voice to the Fox animated presentation Working Class Hero with Patton Oswalt (fingers crossed this gets picked up, the cast and script are both hilarious). Lastly, I have a fun guest role in an upcoming episode of the animated show Bob’s Burgers on Fox. Click the announcement below to view the full Hollywood Reporter article. And yes…that is the creepiest photo of me in the world.

And here’s a link to another announcement that I loved because it had the Jean-Ralphio phrase “Make that Paper” in it. Click the below link.

I’m lending my voice to the newest Dreamworks Animated film- Turbo!
Dreamworks Animation just announced the Turbo cast and it’s incredible. I’m so honored to be a part of it. Here’s the announcement from the Hollywood Reporter-
DreamWorks Animation has assembled a massive voice cast for its latest animated production, Turbo. Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson are joining Ryan Reynolds in Turbo, the company’s original feature that has a release date of July 19, 2013.
Turbo follows an ordinary garden snail (Reynolds) with dreams of racing greatness. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother. When he is one day imbued with the power of amazing speed, he embarks on a quest that will see him racing in the Indianapolis 500.
So mark your calendars…for a year and a half from now.
My Attack of the Show Live Interview
Yesterday I was the live guest on G4’s Attack of the Show. It was so much fun, everyone over there was amazing. A big thank you to Andrew Zilch, Nando Velasquez, Sean Jordan, Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey. In the show, there was a bit where a jacket was attacking the hosts…so we called that back at the end..that just wasn’t randomly out of nowhere…although that would be equally as funny. Check out the interview below.
