There's a lot to hate about Sweden. Beautiful people, the high cheek bones, the fact that every person speaks better english than we do and the durability and great warranty plans on a brand new Volvo.
No, unfortunately I'm not. I have attempted to be a wizard on several occasions. I studied for about a year and a half at Ansontolliver's Wizard School...it wasn't a full year and a half. At the conclusion of which, Anson pulled me aside and said, "I don't want you to waste any more of your money with me. I think it's best for me to let you know you don't have what it takes to be a wizard." And for however sad I was on that day, I respect Anson so much for giving me the straight talk.
Yes. It was down to me or Tobey Maguire for Spider-Man and they harshly told me I was too fat for the suit. That having been said, every time I watch Spider-Man I still think I was the better actor for the role.
I will say that off the top of my head, the two favorite sketches that I was a part of had to have been the Harry Caray space show with Jeff Goldblum and, of course the cowbell sketch with Christopher Walken.
My favorite cast member to work with was Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Those were not based on my testicles. However, Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis allowed his balls to be examined for the prosthetic balls to be made.
Side note: Those are, no joke, $10,000 worth of prosthetic balls that you see in that movie.
I don't know exactly. I think it was Chris Kattan and myself just acting stupid in my apartment when we wrote that sketch for the Groundlings show that we were in at the time. It's also what happens when the beat of any Haddaway song hits your ear.
