Will Arnett (& Amy Poehler)

I’ve got a bone to pick with you, Will Arnett. Why do you keep doing bit parts in crappy B-movie comedies? Blades of GloryThe Rocker? You’re better than that, Will Arnett. You’ve got one of the best characters in probably the best sit-com of the decade on your resume, and are married to one of the funniest, most trail-blazing women in comedy ever. And you have a great tan and fabulous voice.

 Stop doing lame movies. I know, I know, everything in comedy that comes out these days seems to be pretty lame, and it must be hard to resist when your friends ask you to do it or the script comes sailing across your desk with a silly-stupid part written just for you. 

Take a lesson from Michael Showalter. Wait for the next Wet Hot American Summer to come your way. Or even another Baxter, and in the meantime, do some stand-up or web series’ or write a blog. I’d love to know what you’re thinking. I love you so much, Will Arnett, and yet you insist on hurting me over and over again. Even Jason Bateman has been more discerning with his chosen roles (wait a minute, Hancock? Or maybe he just never gets offers.)

I tell you what, Will Arnett, I’m going to skeet you, but you’re on thin ice. You get skeet cred for being married to Amy Poehler (who is a female skeet), for naming your son Archie (damn cute!), for doing those adorable Gap ads last year, and for being GOB Bluth. But that won’t last forever, you know. If you keep on this path of quasi-funny franchise-y, silly gimmick “comedies,” you’re going to find yourself in “Ernest Goes to Summer Camp” territory pretty soon. And you know what happened to Jim Varney? He DIED. And we don’t want that.
