Who’s Ripping Us Off Now?

With the new fall TV season almost upon us (did you see the “new” promo for NBC’s Wednesday & Thursday night comedies?), we thought we’d offer our first The Office related post in quite sometime.  But this one is less about them and more about us.

It came to our attention shortly after the conclusion of last season that NY Mag‘s Fug Girls (of their “The Cut” blog.  Yes, we do occasionally read (and watch shows) about fashion),

had offered a side-by-side comparison of the employees of Dunder Mifflin’s changing styles during their seven seasons in front of the “documentary” cameras.  It was engaging, well-researched, and totally spot-on  It was also VERY familiar, as we had (twice!) previously posted our own visual essay on the stark physical transformations experienced by the Office cast.   Sure, The Fug Girls presented their findings in attractive slide-show fashion, but we find the single page model much easier and efficient (and we’re not about forcing you into

clicking through a dozen panels just to drive up our page views).  The truth is, we both did a great job distilling the pygmalion like evolution of these characters, and each post has its merits.  So, you know what, we’ll just go ahead let you decide.

Introducing: Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History

We’re happy to premiere an all-new feature here on Jumped the Snark, “Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History,” where we post some of the greatest scenes, quotes, exchanges and glances from movies past, all ten seconds or less (and when we refer to cinematic history, keep in mind we’re talking about our cinematic history, which might differ slightly from a certain Roger Ebert’s (for example, we liked Wet Hot American Summer right out of the gate).

So, now, with a memorable but perhaps unheralded clip from Wayne’s World, we debut Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History:

Suds in Your Buds

Jumped the Snark favorite Jason Sudeikis was the guest on today’s WTF Podcast with Marc Maron, and he proved once again that he’s clever, humble, grounded, genuine and, more than anything, gracious.  He still might be our next movie star (even with Hall Passmiddling reception), but he shows no indication that fame and fortune will go to his head.  As you will learn, Gallagher he is not.

[audio http://hw.libsyn.com/p/8/4/d/84d0182f8c7631c2/WTF_-_EPISODE_205_JASON_SUDEIKIS.mp3?sid=67fa63fd23827d47851b40cfddf54376&l_sid=18938&l_eid=&l_mid=2698371]

Favorite tidbit from the interview: when Suds found out he was promoted to the SNL cast  he got day drunk with friends and hit golf balls at Chelsea Piers.  We always knew this was the kinda guy we’d like to hang out with.  He just went ahead and showed it once again.

Big Week For Natural Disasters!

An earthquake and a hurricane in the same week???  Hard to believe.  But how about an earthquake and a typhoon in the same ring?  Now that’s just a recipe for a calamity.

Anderson Cooper is Just Like Us!

He miggles!

Normally  the purveyor of gravitas, presenting a stoic, dignified disposition in the face of all that is immoral and unethical (and least when he’s not on Regis & Kelly), Anderson Cooper proved that he’s not above a good poop joke.  Well, he’s not above breaking into uncontrollable laughter at a terrible poop joke.

EXCLUSIVE: First Clip From Sean Hayes’ New NBC Sitcom

Yesterday Entertainment Weekly broke the news that Sean Hayes is developing a new sitcom with Rescue Me c0-creator (and Larry Sanders Show executive producer) Peter Tolan for NBC.  The pitch: a gay male couple face the trials and tribulations of raising a precocious 12-year-old.  It’s a groundbreaking, social relevant premise with great potential, and only HERE on the Jumped the Snark can you preview an exclusive clip from the pilot.

Look for the show to premiere next spring between Outsourced and Love Bites .
