  • Pamela's seen bigger, if you know what I mean and I'm sure that you do.
  • When I heard that Chris Pratt surprised Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler on set by appearing completely naked, I didn't think it sounded particularly funny. Then I actually watched Parks and Recreation and saw that scene, and it was still not funny. Then I started reading about Chris Pratt's history of problematic comments.

    Now I think the difference between Pratt and Tim Allen is just the felony cocaine trafficking conviction.

    Tim Allen does one character semi-well: Tim Taylor. All of his roles were variations on that one bit. Not much range but he sticks with it after it has some success on the standup circuit.

    Crisp Rat (not a typo) doesn't do any character well. He half-asses his way through every gig. From Andy on Parks and Rec to his recent voicing of Mario, he brings only a name to the table. He's like the Kim Kardashian of actors: you don't know how he's successful but you theorize he does some shady shiat to keep popping up in projects.

    Bags of coke?
  • ive not seen massive amounts of home improvement but i have seen some of it.
    wilson was just about the only really funny or interesting character on the show as i remember it. the tim taylor character (and i think others others sometimes) continually received wisdom and perspective from the wilson characters' worldliness and broad experience.
    that they listened to the weird old fishing hat wizard in their midst is what sets the home improvement characters apart from more modern characterization and discourse.
  • Congratulations to TMZ on having a DVD player. That's some crackerjack reporting.

    TFA references an episode where Tim Allen and Richard Karen did a bit at a Scottish Highland games event. The clip in question was Allen asking the actress playing his wife how he looked, and she adlibbed she wished the kilt needed to be longer. Allen cracked up, ruining the take, and pulled it up (with shorts underneath) to get a reaction from her and the studio audience. The director used the take during a gag reel in the credits.

    Not exactly an apples to apples comparison of Anderson's claims.

    I saw a recent news... thing(?) that was praising him for the Santa movies he is in that I don't recall the name of right now because I don't watch stuff that isn't cartoons with fart jokes.
  • All things considered, this has taught me that a person can directly accuse someone of a crime in a book without first bringing it to any authority for vetting/investigation, which should honestly horrify us....even if the bastard did do it.
    Usually someone says "a very famous actor" or something but she named the guy.

    Just remember, this could happen to you too.  Not excusing the behavior mind you.

  • How she went 30 years without telling this story, I'll never know.  You'd think it would come up at some point during talk of her early days starting out.

    Doesn't matter if Tim Allen tries to sue.

    She's the ex of Tommy Lee, Kid Rock, the dude from the Paris Hilton sex tape, Julian Assange, and Jon "Giant Spider" Peters. Just based on that history with blatant attention whores, her attorneys could always use the Fox News defense to state that no reasonable person would believe anything in that book.

    Yes, we should require governmental approval before a person is allowed to potentially sully the name of the rich and powerful. How could that ever be abused?
  • Comic on a comedy show laughs and performs playful prank.

    30 years later this moment is used against him as supporting evidence for an allegation in a book written by a woman who regularly showed us her body.

    The only logical conclusion is Tim Allen must die.

    Woah, so if someone is in a nude scene in a movie, or in print, the argument here is that anyone can behave in a sexually aggressive manner toward them at any time from then on?

    This post is saying that once someone's shown some skin on screen, that old guys have the moral right to flash them all day long?

    Never underestimate the anxiety associated with being labelled "difficult" in a professional capacity.

    It's difficult to blame someone who has no power for not reporting that kind of behavior. But we should be teaching kids how to report this kind of behavior and the benefits of taking that risk, so they have a path when/if they encounter it. We need to educate them about the tactics predators use to shut them up, and effective tactics to fight back.

    Not "apples to apples", more "eggplants to eggplants"

    i'd guess handsome, in bad rom-coms and ubiquitous in media for a 10 month span.

    Step 1: Hear a story from a woman about her getting sexually harassed.
    Step 2: Immediately assume that it's a lie, based on nothing more than when the story was heard.
    Step 3: Wonder (in the goodest of faiths, honest) about why women don't come forward more.
    Step 4: Congratulate self on a job well thunk.

    Freddie Prinze Jr definitely can't act but everything I have ever read about him says he is a nice guy.

    You'd have also thought it would've been fresh on her mind when she made a return appearance on the show she got her start on.
