Perennial sidekicks Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell have been relegated, yet again, into sidekick territory, this time at the right hand of Jon Heder. In what godless universe is Napoleon Dynamite funnier than Dr. Spaceman?
The upcoming unnamed Comedy Central series stars Heder as “a man chasing big dreams — even as he loses his job and moves back in with his parents. Sanz will play one of his pals, an ex-convict, with Parnell as another friend, a burned-out teacher,” according to Variety. Along with the S— My Dad Says sitcom, it looks like moving-back-home is the trendy comedy genre this season! Sad trombone.
Griping aside, I’m totally looking forward to this show: neither Parnell nor Sanz has had the post-SNL career they deserved, and as dude comedies go, it’s tough to do better than producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.
Are you excited to see Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell back in action, PopWatchers?
