Wonderturtle Adopts Ed Begley, Jr.
Some people around the blogworld have been putting up cute posts about "adopting" a character actor. They post a picture, and explain why this actor is underappreciated. I can't tell whether these posts are meant to be ironic. I can't decide that about this post either.
I hereby adopt Ed Begley, Jr.
Since Ed first came to my attention as Ruth's tool of a boyfriend on "Six Feet Under," I have harbored an inexplicable affection--some might say attraction--toward him. Imagine my delight when I realized, upon doing some research, that he was That Guy in most of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries and apparently, according to his website
, starred in a 1977 feature called "Lust of a Eunuch."
I'm a little concerned about Ed's need
for adoption. He bills himself on his website as "Actor and Activist," and has his own line of cleaning products called Begley's Best
. He has also written a musical
, and has his own TV show
and a hot wife.
However, his That Guy status was recently confirmed when Anthemsled
denied all knowledge of him. The fact that Anthemsled refers to all brown-haired actresses as Bebe Neuwirth
in no way detracts from the value of this evidence.
Ed may not need me, but I need him. Consider "In Her Shell" his new adoptive home.
