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.

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.

Gratuitous Search Term Bait of the Day: Go Fisch

Pleased and a little puzzled by today’s search term “”jenna fischer.””  Pleased because we think she’s just terrific, the modern-day Kelly Kapowski.  And puzzled because the term appears with the quotation marks (hence the extra set above).  We guess those out there in web-land just wanted to make sure they didn’t wind up with Jenna Elfman or Carrie Fischer.  Fortunately, on this blog that’s very unlikely (well, much more likely now).

We’ve sung Fischer’s praises for years for her portrayal of the loveable, dorky Pam Beesley on The Office.  And we’re thrilled that she’s gotten her first big movie role , as Owen Wilson’s understanding spouse in Hall Pass (unless you count her part in Walk Hard. Which we’re not).  But tonight we’re going to highlight one of her lesser known early performances, one that significantly enhanced her position on the Judd Apatow Chart.  We’re talking about her somewhat scandalous turn on Apatow’s Undeclared, a saucier side of Fischer we’re not used to seeing:

And while that was her most memorable appearance on the show it wasn’t her first, as she actually appears briefly in the pilot episode.  Talk about starting off on the right foot.

One time about five years ago our friend texted us “Jenna Fischer on Undeclared. Ha.”  To this day it’s still one of our most cherished texts.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Next Movie Star Part 2 (Cup Checking Higgins)

Just when we thought we couldn’t like Jason Sudeikis anymore – the guy loves wings AND beer – he goes ahead and tops himself.  We figured he’d peaked last week with his Buffalo Wild Wings and Natty Light fueled appearance on Conan; how could be possibly endear himself to us anymore than that?  But then he flew back east and just flat-out dominated last Friday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, sprinkling his infectious charm over the whole show, culminating with a spontaneous attack on Higgins (aka Higgbones) while the two sample some  gourmet grilled cheese.  Just watch and delight.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Earlier in the show Sudeikis joined Fallon for a round of “Long Pour,” further establishing Sudeikis as today’s foremost beer-drenched comedian.  Jason, you like beer, we like beer, what’s say we get together and like beer together?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Next Movie Star (And He’s Just Like Us)

As if Jason Sudeikis needed to endear himself to us even more, he went on Conan last night that and showed that he’s into the exact same things we are: beer and wings.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

After the jump we detail our very personal experiences with Natty Light and Buffalo Wild Wings
