I would write more right now, but I have tears streaming down my face and have stomach pains. It’s only my 20th time watching it, but Jackass Number Two is one of the FUNNIEST movies I have ever seen.
It’s inevitable. At some point in your life, you’re told you look like someone famous.
Do I look like anyone famous?
For me, it’s been a potpourri (or, for my Southern friends, a “pot purry”) of association. Here, in no particular order are those that your one and only Dumbfounded one has been compared to.
JASON LEE – Earl himself. I actually get this a lot (see previous post). From Brodie Bruce in Mallrats to Banky Edwards in Chasing Amy to the one and only Earl Hickie in My Name Is Earl… This one, I agree with.
MIKE FARRELL – Captain B.J. Hunnicut from M*A*S*H. Once was known as B.J. Hunni, travelling the U.S. performing at burlesque shows. Ok, that one, I made up.
JOHNNY KNOXVILLE – Ultimate Jackass. I don’t think so, but my wife says he reminds her of me and she thinks he’s sexy. I’m leaving well enough alone.
BOY GEORGE – Karma Chameleon extraordinaire. One night in Nashville Tn., I had some sort of 80’s type hat on and a drunk guy said “you look like Boy George. I should kick your ass!”. He then fell backwards in his chair and layed there for 3 minutes.
RANDY TRAVIS – Country Singer. I like this guy. I like him as a person, as a singer and as an actor. Looks wise? Ok, I’ll give them this one. I even do a MEAN rendition of “Forever And Ever Amen” in Karaoke.
HERMEY – Rudolph’s wannabe Dentist Elf Friend. Hey man, how could I complain? He yanked that bad tooth out of that son of a bitch Abominable Snowman’s mouth and turned him good! He saved Christmas! And yes… I really HAVE been compared to him.
