“The League” FX Series Premiere Event Coverage & Paul Scheer Interview

Joe from Joeonthetube.com hooked me up with a press pass so I headed down to the Fox lot to cover the red carpet arrivals for the premiere of FX’s new show “The League,” a comedy about a group of guys in their 30s who obsess over a fantasy football league as their only escape from their mundane lives.

This was my first time ever doing this, so please indulge me with a little preamble about the journey.

After checking in with the security guard at the gate and being told to “take a left at the Julie Andrews mural” (which, as I could see, was just beyond the giant mural of Luke battling Vader in The Empire Strikes Back, which is the definition of awesome), a car passed by, driven by the pleasantly smiling Mary Steenburgen. Then I looked to my left and there was a crew shooting a scene on a mock New York street scene set, one that I know I’ve seen in a hundred movies and TV shows. They had two Chapman cranes sitting idly by, the cocky bastards.

So yeah, I was definitely inside the walls of a major Hollywood movie studio. It was pretty cool.

I power-walked to the Darryl F. Zanuck theater, where they had set up the red carpet and an FX logo backdrop behind a red velvet rope, and I joined my fellow photogs. Now, when I say “fellow photogs,” let’s just be clear that I was the only one carrying a consumer grade camera that was purchased used off Craigslist in 2003.

And mine was the only camera running on severely depleted AA batteries that had zero chance of lasting the entire event.

It was also windy and pretty darn cold, even by non-L.A. standards, and I was the only one who didn’t bring a jacket; but my adrenaline, aka worry that I would screw it all up and look like an amateur buffoon, kept me from getting hypothermia.

So after I asked about 25 questions to the organizers and press people, prefacing each with “This is my first time, as you can see (pointing to my janky-ass camera),” the arrivals of the cast began…so here they are…

I was able to speak with Paul Scheer, he of the unbridled tooth gap, whom I used to see on stage at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NYC and who has been enjoying success on shows like Human Giant and 30 Rock

I asked him about going from UCB to TV, using improv on the set, and how he developed his character…

His character “Andre” is a big success in life but is still the loser amongst his group of high school friends. He may make more money than them, but he will always be their punching bag, and this is reflected in how he’s treated in the fantasy league.

“There’s a lot of me in Andre but only at certain points…he is like when you first walk into a party and you feel self-conscious and you want to hide in the corner, but he’s like that all the time.”

Scheer was excited to work with series creators and executive producers Jeff Schaffer and Jackie Marcus Shaffer due to their impressive resume of having worked on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Borat and Bruno.

Take note improv performers: Jeff and Jackie went around to all the comedy theaters and watched tons of improv when they were casting the show (including the Del Close Marathon at UCB).

The show is heavily improvised — no rehearsals — they work from a 10 page outline for the show and then “beat out” individual scenes on the set.

In reference to the guys in the league being pretty plain looking and their wives really hot, Scheer said “Yeah, we’re like the ugly Entourage.”

They just finished shooting the whole season, and Scheer’s character will have a stronger arc than most others.

Coming up (2010?): Scheer and Rob Riggle’s new show “Funny or Die Presents…” will be on HBO.

Don’t miss the series premiere of The League tonight at 10:30pm after an all new episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (which is currently the funniest frackin’ show on television, so The League better bring it; no pressure)

Now an entertainment reporter and a certified paparazzo because I did it once,

The Office 607: “The Lover” Frank and Beans!

Another great episode for the second week in a row, slowly making up for the wedding aisle dance-or-rama spectacular.

Okay, I’ll stop busting on the wedding aisle dance. The awful one.

Jim and Pam return from their honeymoon and are greeted by none other than Blind Guy McSqueezy

B.G. McSqueezy, post-falling into vat of acid face first.

B.G. McSqueezy, post-falling into a pool of acid eyes first.

…Michael’s new character that the women in his improv class absolutely hate, but yet he’s still so proud of it.

From there, we launch a nice subplot, wherein Dwight plants a listening device in a mallard on Jim’s desk.

mallard

And this takes us to the major crisis of the episode, which begins when Michael tells Jim that he’s taken a lover and it’s Pam’s mom.

I love how Jim confirms the affair:

Jim: “You did not have sex with Pam’s mom.”

Michael: “Big time.”

Jim: “What kind of car does she drive?”

Michael: “A green Camry.”

Jim: “F*%K!”

So Jim explodes with a serious warning not to tell Pam and to cease and desist the dating of her Mom. He obviously knows Pam well enough to know she will not take this well.

Jim: “For both of our sakes, never, ever ever see her again!”

Then take another way home, man!

"Then take another way home, man!"

And of course Michael can’t help but tell Pam.

Pam GOES NUTS (which was extreme, but I rolled with it) even trying to lead an office revolt in a conference room meeting about volunteerism and conservation (which is courtesy of an NBC initiative which inserted these themes into the actual scripts of each show on tonight’s lineup).

This scene is a classic Office cattle call, with so many little moments to savor.

  • Look at how happy Stanley is, here, as the only one who’s joining Pam in her chant…
"No more meetings!"

"No more meetings!"

  • Meredith: “Paint a mural of Chicano leaders?”
  • Michael calls Pam’s mom on the phone “boo” and “pickle.”
  • Michael to Pam: “I am your boss, and I may someday be your father!”

Michael’s plea for acceptance pretty much falls on deaf ears, save Phyllis, who seriously crunches on him.

Michael: “I’m caring. I’m generous. I’m sensual. Is it really so horrible that I could possibly go out and find happiness?”

What is so wrong with him?

Why can't I be loved?

He’s right, of course, and what makes this situation so interesting is that Pam was the first person to support him with his personal trials. She saw him as a fragile human being when others dismissed him; she was his rock during the storms of Jan and Holly and she returned to Dunder Mifflin as his one of his conquering generals from the Michael Scott Paper Company. It will be interesting to see if this will continue a disintegration of the Pam-Michael alliance, and will this be treated seriously along with the humor?

We can’t forget Toby, who gets his first loving embrace from Michael…

"Once he got to know me..."

"Once he got to know me..."

…and a few minutes later it’s back to being called a jackass. Poor Toby. But he deserves every scrap of garbage heaped on his head. Because it’s funny.

Toby’s attempts to broker a peace accord go down in flames, and when Pam throws down the gauntlet, Michael fires back: “I’m going to start dating her harder.” She knows what that means.

He also reveals that Jim knew about the affair, which leads to some classic Jim caught-in-the-headlights flustering…

He didn't have all the facts...um..."frank and beannn..."

"Barely. Didn't have all the facts. ~frank and beann...~"

…which I find to be hilarious. I’ve seen a number of internet posters complaining that Jim is such a wimp, that he needs to lay down the law with Pam when it comes to the office. But these moments are a nice counterpoint to the cutesy-mush- poop that they normally inflict upon us. We need some conflict up in that marshmallow center. (Also, I’m married and I realize more every day the power of a smartly-placed “Yes, dear.” It is a quiet power, a humble power, an ego-less power. Amongst other things.)

But Jim gets his manly moment when he takes out Dwight in a nice scene with a clueless Andy and an aria.

The mallard defense.

The mallard defense.

But Michael’s okay, he’s got plenty of female friends, right? They include…

  • His mom.
  • Pam’s mom.
  • His aunt, although she just blocked him out of IM, and…
  • What’s-her-face from Quiznos that he sees four times a week.

We’re left wondering, will we see more of Ryan’s fedora?

fedora

Sinatra and Dino, over here.

We end on, I will admit, a nice scene where Jim reminds Pam of their honeymoon highlights to calm her down, and a failed attempt to suggest that she may be over-reacting.

couple

"Do you think I'm over-reacting." "Yeah, maybe." "But I don't think I am." "You're not."

And just so we don’t have to fade out completely on a patented Pam-Jim cutesy-poo, we get a nice Norman Bates-style denial of insanity from Dwight, straight into camera…

im_not_insane

Not stupid enough to put his primary listening device in a wooden mallard.

Solid episode, guys.

your “tuna boss,”

Mad Men 3.10: “The Color Blue” Don Draper, you’re a huge jerk but I still love you (kinda).

I’m a big fan of small boxes filled with secrets.

My supernatural thriller currently making the rounds features a locked strongbox that just may hold the key to a hellgate.

I can’t wait to see Richard Kelly’s film The Box, (based on a short story by Richard Matheson) due out soon. You press the button, a stranger dies and you get paid a million dollars. Sounds like tons of fun to me.

I love that part in The Color Of Money when the guy asks Vincent (Tom Cruise) what he has in the case and Vincent says: “Doom.”

Then there’s the “box o’ Gwyneth’s head” in Seven. (“What’s in the box?  What’s in the booooxx?”) That’s a nice one.

The briefcase in Pulp Fiction. The list goes on.

If there’s something big (dramatically speaking) and it’s in a box, I can’t wait until it’s opened.

In Mad Men we have Don Draper’s box.  Or is it Dick Whitman’s box?

Much of the contents have already been discovered and used against him by Pete Campbell, an incident that initially seemed to blow over but led to one of the biggest scares of Don’s life, being forced to sign a contract with Sterling-Cooper.  But no one knew the whole truth, with the exception of Don Draper’s former wife out in Long Beach, California. A woman so loving that she was willing to forgive the man who stole her dead husband’s identity and nurture him into a more healthy, successful life. One might say she was “pure.” Keep that in mind.

And so, a HUGE thing happened in this episode that has been threatening to happen since the first few episodes.

keys

Betty found the box.

box

And she opened it.

betty_shock

The cash, Dick Whitman’s birth certificate, dog tags, family photos…even Don Draper’s divorce decree.

divorce

Holy shit.

Does Betty fully understand Don’s history; the depth of his deception?  Does it even matter at this point?  Perhaps all that matters is that he is still, and will always be, a liar.  We won’t know until next week.  Unless the writers TORTURE us by not having her confront him. Oh, the heartless bastards! They better not even consider it.

(A sidenote: if it happens, the epochal Betty-Dick Whitman confrontation, that is, then I ask them not to have Kater Gordon write it. For those who haven’t been following Kater Gordongate, she’s the assistant that rose quickly to become a staff writer, won an Emmy (with co-writer Matthew Weiner) and has now reportedly left the show, probably because she asked for a bump in salary and they didn’t want to pay her, but some speculate it’s because of a personal relationship with Weiner.  No one knows, at least not yet. But we do know that she wrote this week’s episode, which could have benefited from some more inspired writing in the Paul Kinsey and Danny Farrell subplots, IMHO, and I ripped her a new one for her on-the-nose-writing-fest in Mad Men 3.5:”The Fog.”)

So it will be interesting to see what happens to Don in the final three episodes of this season.  Can there really only be three left?  Can’t they make a couple, three, five more just for me?! (Again…heartless bastards be they in ye olde writer’s room.)

Anyway, back to Don and his tortured psyche, a subject that’s been much on my mind for weeks now.  I didn’t file a report last week for “Wee Small Hours,” in which he not only forces himself on Suzanne Farrell but brutally fires Sal for not giving into the sexual advances of a client, the so-evil-you-want-to-kick-him-repeatedly-in-the-balls Lee Garner, Jr.

lee-sal4-IMG_8293

Don even went so far as to refer to Sal as “you people.”

Don has become a massive jerk. Not that he was a saint before, but he’s speeding towards irredeemable.

And the show was never breezy fare, but it is getting REALLY dark. (At least it seems that way, being in the thick of it, waiting on the next broadcast airing each Sunday, as opposed to watching on DVD.)

But we can’t say they didn’t warn us with some of those lovely Mad Men foreshadowing clues…

  • Don’s had dark circles under his eyes all season.
  • Early on, Peggy told the kid in the bar “My boss is a jerk.”
  • The wedding invitation showed us that it’s to be held on the day after the Kennedy assassination.
  • Anything else?  Oh, yeah, a British dude got his foot cut off by a John Deere lawnmower. (And Lois is still working there!  Which, okay, is pretty funny.)

And now, to go along with the shitstorm to come over the contents of the box, Don seems to have got himself into a serious, emotional relationship with everyone’s favorite “kuckoo time-bomb teacher” Suzanne Farrell (you know there’s a bottle of sleeping pills just waiting in her medicine cabinet).

How the hell could Don let himself get in so deep with a mistress yet again?!

My psycho-analysis of big jerk Don is that he’s on a constant quest to understand and explain purity of spirit and the sense of hope, two traits that he lacks. Due to his own father issues and broken sense of self-worth, he sees himself as permanently damaged; he longs to go back to a place of purity and lack of blame that he knows may never have been there in the first place.  This was the theme of his Kodak pitch in “The Wheel,” the first season ender.  And this season opened on him trying to make his marriage and family life work while the specter of his father haunted his every move.

So Don continues on his quest to find purity…but the only problem is that he looks for it in the form of women…and his response is to go about  f*&ing/destroying it.

Perhaps the show should write in the psychiatrist who coined the phrase “dysfunctional.”

Look at his relationships with women:

  • Betty is what society deems pure.
  • Midge the Greenwich village beat girl was a free spirit, a woman with no interest in commitment.
  • Rachel Menken was the ambitious, successful, good woman.
  • Bobbie Barrett was the ambitious, successful, heartless woman.
  • Suzanne Farrell is the dreamer, the idealist. She believes she can change the world one child at a time.

Don meets these women and he must HAVE them, not just for his libido or escapism but a need to decipher what makes them who they are. In the pilot, he told Rachel Menken that love was merely a creation by ad men like him and he lived like there was no tomorrow because…there isn’t. She saw through the facade and sensed his vulnerability and a connection of spirit that was rooted in a mutual feeling of displacement, being an other surrounded by sames. This initially scared Don but eventually he tried to get her to run away with him; now, he just runs alone, like with his trip to Palm Springs in Season Two’s “The Jetset” or his drive upstate this season where he almost gets killed by a couple of teenage grifters.

And it’s starting to wear on me, to be honest. I find that I want him to re-invent himself so that we can start a new chapter in the man’s life, one where he doesn’t need to constantly run from threats or treat women like batting practice. I think I want him, and us, to get somewhere. And the affairs just aren’t moving it all forward.

Look at how he refers to these women with phrasings like “someone like you,” or “people like yourself.”  They are not only different, but they are the opposite of him, and he must know WHY.  In finding this out, he just may decipher why he cannot be pure. Why he had to come from a mother who was a whore and a father who was an abusive drunk and why he cannot commit to anything but an increasingly unstable veneer of stability.

The only woman he seems to have had a remotely pure relationship with, and definitely an honest one, is his “ex-wife” Anna in Long Beach, California, the only person who knows all his secrets, the best friend and mother he never had. Again, a woman so pure she accepted the man that stole her dead husband’s identity, helped him grow up and allowed him to leave the nest with no baggage. Don is trying in some ways to reclaim that relationship, when the future finally seemed bright, before he got in over his head with a marriage and children.

So Don keeps digging himself deeper. When will he learn?

Or, more  importantly, when will we grow tired of it?

How many times can we see him run from an identity crisis and wallow in destructive behavior?

In each meeting with his subordinates in the office he becomes increasingly short-fused and abusive. Look how they’ve framed him in this shot.

don_pitchmeet

Like a weary dictator.

Peggy finally peeped a rebuttal this week when she muttered “Don’t yell at him” to Don, in defense of Paul Kinsey.  This was one of the finest moments of the show, for it subverted our expectations that she might seize the opportunity to make Paul look bad. Instead, she defends him like a big sister.  Because if Kinsey is anything, he’s a petulant little boy who just wants you to join him in celebrating his poetry, and try as she might, Peggy is just not a killer.  She’s ambitious, but she will not step on someone else to get ahead.  She can’t.

Don doesn’t have this problem.  In fact, I can’t help but wonder if Don will finally take out Roger Sterling once and for all, as was presaged in season one when he treated Roger to lunch and got him stuffed up real good with clam sauce and martinis so he would embarrass himself in front of clients (which he most certainly did by unleashing a mega-puke on the office carpet).

Will Don have a brilliant explanation for the box, thus buying him more time with Betty? Will he go on the run? Will he leave Sterling Cooper in disgrace or maybe push out Roger and become the new president of the company when it gets sold to the new buyer?

The theme of this episode was reclaiming the past, or the inability to do so. Bert Cooper can’t handle another funeral. Betty can’t retrieve that first kiss with Henry. Paul can’t remember that brilliant idea. Suzanne’s brother Danny will never outrun his branding as an epileptic freak.

And Don can’t lock that box back in his desk drawer.

Whatever the outcome, no one, not even advertising dream makers, can reclaim the past.

The Office 605: “Mafia” in which Michael Scott orders gabagool…

"I'll have the gabagool."

"I will have the gabagool."

Nice rebound from last week’s wedding aisle dance spectacular with an episode that revolved around an absurd situation that had just enough credibility to hook us and the dolt triumvirate, aka Michael-Dwight-Andy aka the best thing about the show at this point. I’m thankful the writers didn’t worry about advancing story arcs and just focused on developing a hilarious setup.

And thank the soon-to-be-ousted Zucker that Jim and Pam were relegated to mere voices on the phone (they were honeymooning in Puerto Rico).

Is it a surprise to anyone that the show worked just fine without Mr. and Mrs. Happy Happy Jimjams?

But for me, the “gabagool” moment (the Tony Soprano pronunciation of capicolla, the deli meat) was an instant Office perennial. (And let me make clear that I come from an Italian family but never heard capicolla pronounced that way. Granted, the only time it ever came up at all was during an order at Togo’s sandwich shop, but still, park your stereotypes at the door, peoples.)

If the entire episode had taken place at the lunch table and revolved around Michael ordering the “gabagool” I would have been happy. This was nicely escalated by Michael’s goodfellas…

Andy (wiseguy accent): “You know, the gabagoo?”

Dwight (yelling): “Bring him the gabagool!”

Then Michael puts the topper on it: “I’ll have the spaghetti. With a side salad.  If the salad is on top, I send it back.”

Andy is summoned outside to fix a woman’s car (because he’s wearing a mechanic’s outfit so he can bring a tire iron into the restaurant as a weapon in case it gets ugly, why else?) and he explodes her engine, telling her “that’s totaled, you’re gonna want to get a refund.”  Great moment.

Kevin’s disastrous stint in Jim’s office was a nice b story, although too much of Kevin talking in that voice (i.e., Kevin talking) can get tedious. But it kept Jim and Pam on that phone; again, only a good thing.

And they nicely reined in Dwight. He was silly and hardcore in the signature Schrute way without going bat-poopy insane on us.  Case in point: his reaction to Andy saying that Michael will wake up with a horse’s head in his bed.  Dwight reacted instantly with a quick rebuttal and an exasperated, knowing look that can only come from a beet farmer who pioneered a more efficient method to make hamburgers out of horses.  We thankfully didn’t get the cut to an interview where he talks about how your average American has no concept of how to decapitate a horse.  No need, the short line and the look got the job done. Kudos on the restraint, creative team.

Another element that I loved was the repetition of the word “mafia.”  Who says mafia any more?  And they just kept repeating it, especially Andy…

"You made the mafia apologize to you.  You made the mafia be POLITE."

"You made the mafia apologize to you. You made the mafia be POLITE."

Of course, once Michael finds out that they tricked him into thinking the salesman was not in the mob, while he most definitely was, he’s initially scared…but then he realizes he was just a complete bad-ass so he tells his war story to the entire office, adding that he told the guy “If any of your friends come around here, they’re dead.  I said something like that.”  Prompting Oscar to comment “Let’s be clear he backed down an insurance salesman from Mutual of Harrisburg.”

But Michael will not be put in a corner.  So he makes it clear who wears the pants with his coffee order to Erin…

"If it's not Stop'n'Shop, I send it back."

"If it's not Stop'n'Shop, I send it back."

Solid episode.  And props to actor Mike Starr, a go-to tough guy actor who never overdoes the “New York Italian Guy” bit like too many of his peers and will always be remembered as Frenchy in Goodfellas (“I’m the night watchman, I’m the Commandant.”) and as Eddie the Sinatra-wannabe in Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam.

"Garlic bread. Toasted, not burnt."

"Garlic bread. Toasted, not burnt."

When I first met my wife, she turned me on to the darkly comedic elements of Summer of Sam and we watched  it more than once on her crappy vcr and tiny TV.  And now, we’ve graduated to an outdated dvd player and bigger, but still analog and crappy, TV.  But at least we’re not getting shaken down by Grotti, who definitely changed his name from Gotti.

See ya’s next week, fuggedaboutit.

Mad Men Behind-the-Scenes drama: Kater Gordon off writing staff – Deadline.com

"Gimme that!"

"Gimme that!"

Interesting Mad Men staff news from Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood: Kater Gordon, the co-writer of the Emmy winning second season finale episode “Meditations in an Emergency” will not be returning for next season.

Finke suggests that foul play or some kind of Letterman-esque situation may have led to her being fired.

This is interesting to me as I first noticed Kater Gordon when I was particularly unenthused by her weak writing in MM 3.5: “The Fog.”

I noticed that she had gone from writer’s assistant to co-writing the second season finale with Matthew Weiner, the creator.  Seemed a bit fast. This article says she was actually his personal assistant and suggests the possibility that there may have been some illicit goings-on — but isn’t Weiner gay?  It’s funny I always assumed that he was until this season when for whatever reason the gaydar wasn’t pinging so much when I saw him do press (update: nope, he’s married and has four sons.  I know gay men who have kids from marriages with women, but they didn’t stay with their wives.  So my gaydar fails again; I swear, I had no idea Bruce Valance would try to kiss me at that party.  I thought he was leaning in to tell me another hilarious Whoopi Goldberg-related bon mot.).

Anyway, maybe there’s a simple explanation, no need for dramatics…Kater Gordon just asked for more money after the Emmy win and Matt Weiner didn’t want to pay her so she left?  At this time, no one really knows anything.

And in other Mad Men behind-the-scenes newsChristina Hendricks got married today in New York City.

But in case you were wondering, her hubby is NOT the love child of Jeff Goldblum and Toby Flenderson.  (I know, right?)

Hubby is an actor intro'd to her by Vincent Kartheiser, aka Pete Campbell.

Time to make the Donuts! Marge Simpson in Playboy

Va-va-voom boys! Don’t tell the wives, this is a MUST-BUY! Not since the Madonna or Elle Macpherson issue of the ol’ Pboy have we had such need to purchase the magazine. Okay, I’m dating myself; who’s that gamer chick that everyone was raving about?  Olivia Munn?

Will they airbrush Marge so she looks…even more cartoony?  Their normal models already look plastic, why should a cartoon be any different?

The sad thing is that the pics probably will be blurred on the mainstream media and come with parental warnings.  Sheesh.

And there’s an interview with Benicio Del Toro!

Insert grotto joke here.
