Adopt An Actor

After the heart-rending plea Splotchy gave, I have decided to adopt-an-actor: Tony Hale




I first discovered and fell in love with Tony while watching him being the gentle but goofy brother on TV's Arrested Development. His voice has a tone of chocolatey smoothness and his mannerisms reminded me of an ex-boyfriend, which isn't as bad as it sounds. Although I found Gob (Will Arnett) to be the sexier of the two brothers, Tony Hale's portrayal of Buster in love with Lucille 2 (Liza Minelli) won me over.

Since the tragic cancellation before its time of Arrested Development, I have seen Tony popping up here and there, most notably in the short-lived, but also fun Andy Richter, P.I. He plays neverous nellies in many movies. Look for him as the Social Worker in the upcoming Buster's Class Project, which, alas, is not about Buster Bluth's class project, but rather a film that promises to deliver a portrait of "21st Century high schoolers in an amazingly revealing light." Sigh.

I will be updating you regularly on his career progress. If you are looking for an actor to adopt, why not browse The J.T. Walsh Memorial "Hey! It's That Guy!" sight for a struggling actor to promote?

  1. Congratulations!

    I wasn't a religious viewer of Arrested Development (blame me for its cancellation, I guess!), but every time I did see it I thought it was hilarious. So many great cast members, including your adoptee. It's a shame they weren't able to make more.

    Oh, and J.T. Walsh. Man, do I love that guy. He makes any movie he is in about 250% better. Rest in peace.

  2. I've been considering adopting an actor, but everyone I look into is dead.

  3. How about Wanda Sykes or William Devane? They could use a home, Pezda.

    Thanks Splotchy!

  4. You're welcome!

    If anyone adopts William Devane, they need to be careful around him, as his nose is wicked sharp.

    pezda, just so you know, many people have adopted dead actors -- nothing wrong with that...

  5. Wanda Sykes is awesome.

    The real tragedy of the cancellation of Arrested Development is that they killed it to make room for American Dad, which blows dead goats.

  9. His creation of Buster is genius, absolute genius! I never saw Arrested Development, so I'm in the middle of watching it now. Well actually, only two episodes left. What a great show, I'm sad it's going to be over soon.
