The Serious One, The Funny One, and The Other One

6 03 2008

It was about a year or so ago that I realized that Craig Bierko looked an awful lot like the comedy version of Clive Owen. See, I was watching Dickie Roberts, Former Child Star (accidentally! — I mean, it just happened to be on! — my sister likes David Spade! — it was for reasearch purposes only! — I only watched it for the articles, I swear!), and it just hit me like a ton of bricks. A pointlessly reveletory ton of bricks.

I didn’t think much of this until recently. I don’t know if this is the case where you are, but here in L.A., they’ve been hyping the crap out of this new show from the Farrelly Brothers called Unhitched. There’ve been billboards, TV commercial,… okay, that’s about it, but there have been a lot of them. Now, I haven’t seen the show and I probably won’t, but as far as I can tell, the whole thing hinges on how funny it is to lick Ranch dressing off a baby’s head. Based on the lack of any sort of actual viewer feedback I’ve heard, apparently the answer is not funny. Not funny at all. (Side note: How exactly can a show that won’t even premiere for another three weeks already be dubbed “The new hit show from the guys who brought you ‘There’s Something About Mary'”?)

So, I’m seeing these billboards, and I’m watching these commercials, and I’m saying to my fiancee, “Hey, look! That guy from Grey’s Anatomy is in a new show!” And she says, “Which guy?” And I say, “You know, the one who married and died on Izzy — Denny, I think.” You can see we’re huge Grey’s anatomy fans. So she sees the ads and agrees, “Oh, yeah.”

Also recently, I’m watching old Sex and the City episodes on TBS, and I say, “Hey look! Denny from Grey’s Anatomy!” “Oh, yeah.”

Come to find out, both these Denny’s? Totally Craig Bierko! I know! So, I don’t know what it all means, but I say to you, Hollywood: hop to it! Get these three guys in a movie together. Make ’em play brothers. Or trap ’em and take DNA samples, something. It has to mean something, I just don’t know what.

So I submit my evidence to you, dear reader. What do you make of it? Is it just coincidence? A crazy and inevitably wacky scheme of sorts? Would you like to invent a story that involves these three seperated at birth, or in some other crazy pickle? Let me know.

The Serious One

The Funny One

The Other One

Okay, so in my search through the internet, I couldn’t find perfect pictures to exemplify their similarities, but trust me, they’re there.

Incidentally, as I was searching Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Denny) pictures, I came across this startling twist:

Who Am I?  And Also Who Am I???

Yes, one of those last two guys is Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The other is recent Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner Javier Bardem. But I defy any of you to say for certain which is which.

Okay, time to end this post. I’m freaking myself out!!
