I cast a major network sitcom.
Let me explain.
Earlier this year, Christina Applegate took to Twitter and asked her followers to suggest comedic actors for a project. Knowing most people would go with the obvious choices, I put forth a recent find:
He took your typical made-for-TV romantic lead and turned it into something uniquely appealing. His timing was unique. I stuck with the mini-series — we’re talking four hours, people — because he made the expected and predictable extremely entertaining.
Christina later tweeted a thank you for our suggestions, saying she had received a couple of names that she didn’t recognize and planned to research.
And look who pops up on Up All Night??
It’s pretty gratifying, I admit. (Would be even more so with a finder’s fee.)
