BJ Novak Joins ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ | FT via Marc Webb’s Twitter
i’ve probably seen this interview more times that you could possibly imagine, but do yourself a favor and watch the outtakes of the most charming man alive giving an interview.
“Maybe Kitsch will make his way back towards the roles that let him be Taylor Kitsch. Consider Riggins: He was an angry lunkhead, sure, but he was memorable for his wisecracks, his confused, goofy faces, and most importantly (cue Explosions in the Sky) his heart. Kitsch’s all-action post-Friday Night Light run left no room for the jokes and smirks that make him likable, or make him different from the thousand other former Diesel models milling around Hollywood. The bang-em-up approach isn’t really catching on anyway, so why not let Taylor Kitsch lighten up a little? Or take a page from the Channing Tatum playbook and put him in the Magic Mike musical. We’re good with either strategy. We just want the Riggins light to shine again.”
The coolest party you weren’t invited to.
but really, pretty much my fave people in one place. Jimmy Fallon, Aaron Paul, Jon Hamm, JT, etc. etc. i mean look how much fun hova is having with his boys! i was available this night. still trying to figure out why aaron paul didn’t contact me…
part of my thursday afternoon was spent in barnes in noble, drinking a java chip frap, listening to the chris brown station on pandora (stop judging me), and reading the friday night lights companion, a book of essays dissecting one of the best shows ever (seriously, i can feel your judgement through the internetz).
throughout the book, there’s a recurring section called “why we love” and goes on to describe various reasons why we love each of the main characters from FNL with examples from the show. this is what it said for tim riggins. absolutely accurate.
it actually does go on to give legit reasons why he’s so great (loyal to his family, ability to overcome adversity, being the true definition of a good guy, etc. etc.), but let’s be honest, we all know that if you even mutter the words ‘tim riggins’, the first thought in your head won’t be his top notch stint as a radio sports talk show host. it will always be this:
Tami: What’s going on? [walks to window] Oh, come on!
tim’s stay at the taylor home might be some of my favorite scenes ever. i mean who can blame them for staring??!
BECKY: [tearful] Can we please just go? This is a stupid, dumb idea.
TIM: I’m gonna tell you something, alright? And you can’t tell it to anyone else. My mother never took me shopping for a pageant gown… and because of that, I never placed at Miss Texas. That’s why I got into football. That’s fact.
