I have friends who are more talented than I who haven’t gotten the opportunities that I’ve had. There’s luck involved. There’s being in the right place at the right time, looking the right way — having an enormous stroke of good luck, like having Aaron Sorkin be your friend who wants to cast you in things. It’s not a meritocracy. You can be so good and have so little success.– Truly great interview with Scandal’s Josh Malina. The world of actors who work hard but aren’t particularly famous is so fascinating. (via shanio) Via Backwash
two of the very first ads i’d ever created, way back in 2001 for the new Mini relaunch. although i think the concept is great, my design and copywriting work have come a loooooong, long way.
Via pimp and circumstance.
Leo: I need a favor: the President’s gonna be getting a phone call and I don’t want him to take it and I don’t want him to know why.
Charlie: The first part’s okay, the second part gets ethically tricky.
Charlie: So someone’s complaining to the President?
Leo: The Secretary-General.
Charlie: You want me to have the President dodge a call from the U.N. Secretary-General and not know why?
Leo: Yeah, could you swing that?
Charlie: If I could, that would be troubling, wouldn’t it?
Via ginger, get the popcorn!
Via Stephen/Jon Overload!
And finally, the bromance quote of the night, courtesy of Stewart: “I know Stephen [Colbert] lives here [in Montclair], so he’s being very languid, but I want you all to know… This is the most vulgar, profane, dirty, sick individual I have ever had the pleasure of laughing my ass off with.– Jon Stewart almost quit Daily Show over “asshole” coworkers (via brooklynmutt) Via Brooklyn Mutt
Okay, remember that when I screencap things, I don’t watch the video beforehand, so this is all just my interpretation on what I believe to be going on
First off, the first thing I noticed was this
I don’t know why Rob Riggle’s eating a sandwich and as I progressed through this, I don’t think anyone even bothers talking to him, so I dunno
So then Jon turns to talk to Samantha and
Jon, no, what are you doing
SUDDENLY, EVERYONE’S FOCUS IS ON JON, AND SAM LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TELLING HIM NOT TO JUMP UP THERE INSTEAD OF HELPING HIM, SO MY GUESS IS THAT HE WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE JUMPING UP THERE LIKE THAT
Also, Jon’s ass. Moving along
So thank God, Jon makes it up there successfully, but I am further guessing that that wasn’t scripted because
John is still just staring at him and oh wow, Jon crossed his legs, woo boy, but
JOHN IS JUST LIKE, “DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN?” And notice that everyone is still ignoring Rob eating that sandwich, so okay
JON, YOU SASSY FUCK
WHOA NELLY, SPREAD THEM LEGS, WORK IT
Jon, can I just sit on your lap
Look at him, omg, ROB, YOU AND YOUR STUPID SANDWICH
Moral of the story is that if you don’t find Jon Stewart adorable, I don’t think we can be friends (x)
