“A Goof”-The Ten

“Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Wife”-The Ten

Soup R Crackers on Party Down

as “I wanna dip my balls in it!” Louie on The State

as Miles on Charmed

When I was a little girl (let me enjoy this, I only get to be a little girl in flashbacks) I didn’t watch a lot of TV but I did tend to watch MTV at night. I thought it was like getting a glimpse at adults. Of course, in retrospect, it really wasn’t. It was more like a bunch of 20 somethings acting silly which can be a lot of fun. For years when I’d hear something about this show The State I remembered the title and watching sketch comedy on MTV back in the day. That’s as far as it went though. I didn’t remember the actual show at all. However it turns out I’ve been watching and enjoying the collected works of the cast (also writers) of the show for years. Recently I’ve been marathoning the show on Netflix and it’s so sarcastically hilarious. What am I getting at? This was the springboard of the fantastic Ken Marino’s career.

I first noticed Ken Marino as nice and sexy Officer Russotelli in 2000’s 101 Ways (The Things a Girl Will Do to Keep Her Volvo). I happened to be surfing movies channels years ago, came across and was absorbed by it. I recently rewatched it and still enjoyed it immensely. It’s about a young female writer trying to get by. Marino plays the only normal guy in the film so I didn’t realize he was a comedic actor.

As time went by I’d see him in small roles here and there and go “Oh, it’s that hot guy” but I didn’t know his name or follow his career. One of those times was when he played one of Phoebe’s many love interests on Charmed. Yes, I was a huge Charmed fan.

I was really happy to see him in recent years opposite his The State costar Michael Ian Black on Reaper as part of a cool gay demon couple. He also really shined in The Ten. You can watch his whole part in that film by viewing the top 2 videos.

What caused me to be so enamored with him as of late though is his kick ass performance as team leader Ron Donald on Party Down. Ron Donald is always trying to be optimistic (as with his Soup R Crackers goal) but things just never seem to go his way. I really dig him in this role because I have a thing for big doofy guys. I am attracted to a lot of different men but if I had a type it would be the big dumb guy.

Obviously Marino himself is very intelligent though. He’s a writer, producer and director. Most recently he directed the season 2 finale of Party Down. There’s a lot of talk about Party Down coming to an end after this season because it’s more of a labor of love than a cash cow for the cast but I’m really hoping this doesn’t happen because it’s definitely one of the funniest shows out there right now. Marino has been very vocal in his distaste of members of the cast leaving the show and his co-star Martin Starr has also expressed worry over the show’s future on twitter. I really hope a 3rd season somehow gets made.

There is no way I could go into all of his roles. Go check out his filmography and see what appeals to you.

FUN FACTS:
Marino is married to Erica Oyama who appeared on another MTV show Undressed. They have one child.

“My big theory is that comedy is a lot like porno now: there’s something out there for everyone.”-Ken Marino

WRITE
I think we should write Ken Marino and tell him how amazing he is. He is so underrated that while putting this together I couldn’t find any fansites for him and had to get some of the pics from his own, abandoned Myspace page.

NEGLECTED AWARDS
These awards are based on my own opinions
The Full Monty-Best Picture
Why didn’t I nominate it to begin with ? I hadn’t seen it yet because I unfortunately don’t live in a social mecca. Now I wish I had, so here’s there mention.
David Spade-Best TV Actor
Now what’s my excuse ? I watched this show when it first came out, but this year I could never figure out when it was on. It’s a good thing that they added it to Must See TV Thursday

TO VOTE: simply e-mail me at dlm@hhs.net with each number & the letter you choose. (ex.4 for song & c if you choose Deadweight) There is no need for you to include the category name or title/name you choose. Numbers are sufficient. Also submit your favorite movie if you choose. All will be included on this page when I list the winners. So if you wish to know the winners bookmark this page & return April 19th or later.

RULES:
1. Do not submit multiple entries.
2. For the Your Say section you can submit any movie from 1997 that you want except for a movie that is nominated for Best Picture.
3. Titanic-Why didn’t I nominate it or anyone in it ? I’m sick of the hype about it. Don’t say that I probably didn’t even see it, I saw it twice. Yes, I think that Leonardo DiCaprio is a talented, handsome actor, but was he robbed of an oscar ? No. Personally I’ve always enjoyed his movies, but if it takes Titanic for him to win you as a fan you’re no fan of his.
4. Contest ends April 17th & results will be posted April 19th.
