ACTOR DOG WATCHING HOMEBODY
While Howard doing AGT for a third season was the big news of the day, the second biggest news was delivered to Eric the Actor.
Eric's longtime (and long-suffering) agent Johnny Fratto triumphantly announced that the FXX show 'Legit' – which Eric had been begging for a role on – had offered him a part. Not just any little 'keys, woman' cameo, but a real recurring role.
Of course, Eric was so pleased that he profusely thanked everyone, was grateful and humble and said he was working on getting his transportation in order.
Just kidding! Eric was difficult and stubborn, claiming that the dates were too close to Thanksgiving for him to travel and citing his commitment to watch his brother's dog as reasons for not being able to go.
Johnny couldn't believe that Eric wasn't jumping up and down with excitement – but we can. 1. He's in a wheelchair. 2. He's still our miserable little Eric.
So, despite the fact that this is a recurring paying acting role, and all Eric wants to be in the world is an actor, we're not holding out hope for Eric on FXX.
Maybe they should give Jeff the Drunk a call.
