It has been over 20 years since Conan O’Brien took over Late Night from David Letterman, and now David Spade claims he was offered the the job first. While sitting down with The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Joe Dirt revealed that Lorne Michaels offered him the hosting job when he was still on Saturday Night Live, but he turned it down. At the time, Spade was still young and wanted to do a sitcom and not get tied down to late night show. He felt, “That might be it for me, I’ll just be a talk show guy.” Even though he said no, he says he was still offered $2 million a year to change his mind. As we know he didn’t.
I guess Spade was right. If you look at all the other talk show hosts of the time, they all spent over 20 years in their seats. Even though he was right, I think I would’ve gotten in to late night earlier had he taken over Late Night. Although, that means we would not have Conan and I think he’s the best late night host on television today. So it’s a toss up for me, what do you think of his reveal.
Everyone has seen or at least heard about ESPN repoter Britt McHenry’s rant against a tow truck worker and turns out she wasn’t the first star to do this. Funny Or Die has uncovered video of David Spade doing the same thing and he really is Joe Dirt. Who knew? He used to be known as one of the nicest men in Hollywood, guess it was just a rumor. Sad.
BTW watch the video all the way through for a very believable ending to this tale.
Just days after a video surfaced of Dennis Quaid losing his temper on the set of a movie, the actor was seen holding Seth Green in a chokehold. The red headed actor explained what happened, “Said the wrong thing to Dennis Quaid, saw the business end of his powerful arms while @DavidSpade tried to intervene.”
What Green said to him, we don’t know. Maybe he called him Dopey the Dick? What do you think he could’ve said to him to garner that reaction?
UPDATE: Funny Or Die revealed that they were behind the Dennis Quaid meltdown and here is the full video. It is a lot funnier when you see the whole thing play out.
Crackle announced today that David Spade and Fred Wolf are re-teaming to finally bring us another Joe Dirt movie. Joe Dirt 2 has been 13 years in the making and it will be the first made-for-digital sequel to a major motion picture.
Fans of the cult classic will be happy to know that it picks up where the first one left off. On that note when Spade was asked how he felt about doing it, he said, “I’ve been sleeping in this wig for years and it will be nice to wear it in the daytime again.â€ So in short, you can part a mullet from a man, but you can’t part a man from his mullet.
You also can’t part fans from Joe Dirt and that is why we are finally getting this much desired follow-up.
Now that we are getting sequels to movies online, which fan favorite should be next?
Just Shoot Me’s Jack Gallo and Dennis Finch aka George Segal and David Spade are reunited for an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs. Seeing the boss and his employee together again brings as big of a smile to my face as when I found out the modern day ’80s sitcom is coming back for a second season.
On that note the season premiere for last year’s best show is September 24th, so mark your calendars not only for the show but also for this reunion.
Over the weekend Oxford Dictionary announced that Selfie is the Word of the Year. Well David Spade knew it was coming, so he recently enrolled in a class to take the perfect one. Now that they are a few weeks in, they are finally taking out their phones, looking in the mirrors and trying out what they learned so far. Here is how Joe Dirt did on his midterm, “Took a selfie class at learning annex. 3 weeks in we take first one. I got a C+! Only comment from teacher was ‘ use diff person’ #constructive #filterclassthis summer”. He looks a little Dickie in it, but he should’ve gotten at least a B+. I would’ve given him an A if he did one in just his underwear because I heard he has a rules of an engagement down there and I want to see it!
What grade would you give him?
David Spade Tweeted a picture of him in bed and said “Our new company is having a sleepover. Im in @sleepyjonesing pajamas doing lay down standup jokes. I went 3 for 6”
I don’t know if it is the slicked back hair or the mustache, but he kind of looks creepy in that bed. But yet, still so cute!
David Spade Tweeted the above picture and said “Nightshooting in a department store. Stealing shoes #dontfriskme” Since I have heard that his Dickie Roberts is really big and I really love shoes, I would so have to frisk him if I saw him.
If David Spade thinks he can attract women with shoes, he is right! He has me interested in being his Cinderella especially with that slicked back hair. That is unless he is stealing the high heels because he has a foot fetish because that is just not my thing.
Most celebrities are on diets like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and so on, but David Spade is on one that I am sure a lot of people would like to be on. Joe Dirt Tweeted his secret weight plan, “Im on a seaweed diet. I see weed and i smoke it. â€ª#gainingweight”. I have heard of the Seefood Diet, but I like the Seeweed Diet better. Although both diets cause you to gain just as many pounds and since I live in LA I need to be on the weight losing kind.
