Dan Cortese's possible return: WHY am I stoked?

Posted on



I was just reading a Hollywood Reporter item on ABC’s latest reality pilot Crash Course (like CBS’ Thunder Road, exec produced by McG, it involves contestants driving obstacle courses — because we obviously need two of those shows), and I saw a sentence that made me happier than it has any right to: “Orlando Jones (MADtv) and Dan Cortese (Veronica’s Closet) are attached as hosts.”

I had no idea that I was still a Dan Cortese fan. Are there others out there like me? You’re among judgmental strangers friends. Admit it.

Kick ass on that pilot you’re taping this weekend, Dan. (And tell Orlando I loved his guest spots on Men in Trees and Ghost Whisperer.)
