What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day, then to announce that you are going to be a first time parent. That is exactly what David Faustino and his girlfriend, Lindsay Bronson, did yesterday. Hopefully they will name their bundy in the oven, Bud, if it’s a boy.
Back in 1983 ABC aired a miniseries about what would happen if a nuclear bomb hit the United States, and now Nuclear Family is doing the same but with a different scenario post the apocalypse and yet in an equally as scary and intense way. John (Corin Nemec) and Karen (Sharon Lawrence) are about to get a divorce and a loud noise will shake their world and ours as a nuclear bomb crash lands down on the USA. Instead of running towards the city, they run to the woods with their children and find out a camp has been created for the survivors. The people in charge of it have different plan than the survivors and now John and Karen have to fight for their lives and the lives of their kids from the leader(Ray Wise). This suspenseful movie looks like a real nail biter that will keep you up for weeks thinking what would happen if the world would come to an tomorrow; and because of that I can’t wait to see it.
Earlier this year David Faustino and his best friend Corin Nemec launched their webseries Star-ving on Crackle to a lot of success. Now the hysterical webisodes are available on DVD with bonus and extended scenes! Considering how far the show went, I can’t wait to see what we didn’t get to online, but I am not sure how much I am looking forward to seeing Faustinio and Nemec’s bare a$$es on my larger TV screen. Not that they were bad, it is just that that is Bud Bundy and Parker Lewis, we are not suppose to know if their a$$es are hairy or not.
But getting back to Star-ving besides David Faustino’s co-stars reuniting for the Married…With Children reunion, Ed Asner, Alan Thicke, Tracey Gold, Jeremy Miller, Seth Green, Kato Kaelin, rapper Coolio, and porn star legend Ron Jeremy all guest starred on the webisodes in ways we never thought we would see them.
If you are looking for something hysterical and raunchy to add to your collection, then Star-ving is just what you need. You will find yourself laughing out loud so many times you might want to put on a pair of depends because you will be peeing in your pants! BTW did I mention to you that the DVD is cheap so there is no reason not to add it to your collection!
The cast of Married…with Children (Ted McGinley, Katey Segal, Christina Applegate, Ed O'Neill and David Faustino) got together to be honored at the TV Land Awards! It is nice to see them all dressed up in suits and dresses unlike the white trash attire they would wear on the show! I wonder why Marcy isn't there? BTW how cute is the relationship between Ed and David, it really looks like father/son!!!
Seriously between these photos and the brilliant webseries Star-ving which included a Married…with Children reunion, I want a MWC movie more than ever!
According to Producer Al Gomez (writer of the classic 80’s video game comedy “Joysticks”), “The Bollywood Boys” is the story of a couple of down on their luck Hollywood filmmakers, Tom Berrymore (Faustino) and Jerry Brightman (Nemec), who try to rekindle their dying careers by making the first Hollywood-Bollywood musical with the help of Mumbai mob money, and an aged, has-been, Bollywood star”.
So when I asked David Faustino what caught his interest about this movie, here is what he told me; “We just thought the script was really funny and also thought it was timely given the success of ‘Slumdog’.” He is isn’t kidding about the perfect timing to do this movie! I actually want to The Bollywood Boys over that multiple Oscar winning movie!
Sincerely if this movie is anything like their hit webseries Star-ving, it could be as big as Slumdog Millionaire. Well, maybe that is going too far, but it will definitely be a funny movie that will push the envelope in a way it has never been pushed and maybe shouldn’t be pushed that way again!!! Seriously I can’t wait to see what they all do with this movie since they will have a little more freedom to be even more raunchy on the big screen!!!
Have you been Star-ving for a Married…With Children reunion since the show went off the air like me? Well the wait is over thanks to David Faustino’s new hit webseries Star-ving. Bud Bundy called up his old TV family and brought them together for the first of hopefully many reunions. Seriously that is how the reunion needs be done, uncensored and funny as all heck! And most importantly with Seth Green as Bud Bundy!!! Joking!!!
Earlier in the week I spoke David Faustino about Star-ving and here is what he told me about this hysterically brilliant webisode that is better than I thought it was going to be and I knew it was going to be awesome!
Seriously? OMG! WTF? Ã¢â‚¬â€œ What was it like doing the Married With Children reunion
webisode? Do you think we might get a real one soon? David Faustino – ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good question. I know that thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been talk about it for years, but nothingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ever come of it. Maybe theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll make one with a different cast one day, and throw us cameo bonesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ (thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s where the idea for the Ã¢â‚¬Å“marriedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦with children THE MOVIEÃ¢â‚¬Â episode on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star-vingÃ¢â‚¬Â came from)
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Who came up with the idea to cast Seth Green? DF -That was me on this one. We have always been mistaken for each other, basically, for our entire career, because of our height, age and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re both known for being funny, soÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ I thought it would be funny if they cast Seth in the role of Bud Bundy behind my back, and let comedy ensueÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ I had just finished an episode of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Robot ChickenÃ¢â‚¬Â and decided Seth owed me one, lolÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ he was frigginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ GREAT in the episodeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ wait till you see it!
Now that you have seen it and just how funny Star-ving is, check out the other webisodes on Crackle! The first five webisodes with guest stars like Coolio, Gilbert Gottfried and Ron Jeremy are already up and there are several more coming every Friday!
Hopefully at some point Faustino will give his writing partner and co-star Corin Nemec a Parker Loser Can’t Lose reunion because I would love to see that too!!!
BTW who knew that David Faustino had such a good a$$!
David Faustino aka Bud Bundy launched the hysterical Star-ving on Crackle.com last week and I was dying to know more about more about the webseries that had me LOLing several times! So I figured why not go to the source himself to find out more and he was kind enough to answer my questions!!! His answers are just as funny as Star-ving!!!
Seriously? OMG! WTF? Ã¢â‚¬â€œ How did Star-ving come about? David Faustino – Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star-vingÃ¢â‚¬Â came about from my writing partners (Todd Bringewatt, Sam Kass and Corin Nemec) and I, working on several ideas, some of which were in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“very closeÃ¢â‚¬Â stage, some we were still in the baby stages with, however, we were all a bit frustrated with our careers and just how long everything takes to get done in this town… So we basically just decided to write about ourselves and center the story around mine and CorinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life. We obviously exaggerate the sh!t out of a lot of it and really crank the volume up to 11. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬â„¢a curb your enthusiasm meets the anti-Entourage…on acid.
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ What can my readers expect from the webseries? DF – Whew! What canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t they expect? They can expect first and foremost, laughs. They can also expect higher quality product because we had a much bigger budget to work with than almost anything thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s made for the web. They can also expect guest stars, hot girls, nudity; male and female, drugs, porn, little people, retarded people, and all around craziness. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not for people who are easily offended. We donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t push the envelope; we shred it.
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ How did you get so many actors like your Married With Children alumni, Gilbert Gottfried and Ed Asner to be part of the series? DF – First and foremost we got these great guest stars because they liked what they read on paper; it made them laugh. Also, I called in a lot of favors from friends and acquaintances. They were all working for a tiny fraction of what theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re used to making, so I am really grateful to have gotten them. And to get the whole MWC cast on the same day in the same place was no small feat. They were all so helpful. And in my opinion, they are all brilliant in what they do on this show! I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be happier with their performances.
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ How did the partnership between Corin Nemec and you start with these webseries? And why does everyone hate him in your webseries? LOL! DF – Corin and I have been friends for years, since back in the day when we were both at FOX. And as a side note Sony Pictures Television owned both shows as well, and now they own Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star-vingÃ¢â‚¬Â, so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of come full circle for us in a way. Hmmm, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœwhy does everyone hate Corin within the show?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I guess cuz itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just funnier than them all liking him. Right?
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Have Corin and you used any of the tips you learned when you did Neil StraussÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ webseries on MySpace? DF – IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be lying if I said I never used any of it…
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ What was it like doing the Married With Children reunion webisode? Do you think we might get a real one soon? DF -ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good question. I know that thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been talk about it for years, but nothingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ever come of it. Maybe theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll make one with a different cast one day, and throw us cameo bones… (thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s where the idea for the Ã¢â‚¬Å“married…with children THE MOVIEÃ¢â‚¬Â episode on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star-vingÃ¢â‚¬Â came from)
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Who came up with the idea to cast Seth Green? DF -That was me on this one. We have always been mistaken for each other, basically, for our entire career, because of our height, age and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re both known for being funny, so… I thought it would be funny if they cast Seth in the role of Bud Bundy behind my back, and let comedy ensue… I had just finished an episode of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Robot ChickenÃ¢â‚¬Â and decided Seth owed me one, lol… he was frigginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ GREAT in the episode… wait till you see it!
SOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ What else do you have coming up? DF – Have a film called Ã¢â‚¬Å“BustedÃ¢â‚¬Â coming out with Charlie Murphy and David Alan Grier. Also, a film being released on DVD I think this month called Ã¢â‚¬Å“High HopesÃ¢â‚¬Â with Jason Mewes, Corin, Danny Trejo, Andy Dick and a bunch of others… Also, looking forward to another season of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star-vingÃ¢â‚¬Â. Thanks for checking it out.
I can’t wait to see the married…with children THE MOVIE webisode along with all the others! Seriously guys you so have check out Star-ving, I promise you will be laughing your a$$ off especially with some of the a$$es you see in the webisodes along with the brilliant writing and comedic acting!
You can watch the first three webisodes now on Crackle and there will be a new one every Friday! Oh and did I mention the next one stars his TV sister Christina Applegate aka Kelly Bundy!!! What more do you need? They have nudity, laughs, wrongness, David Faustino and Corin Nemec!!! So go check it out now!
Thank you so much to David Faustino for taking the time to answer my questions!!!
David Faustino launched his new webseries Star-ving today on Crackle and seriously it is freaking funny! I posted the first one with his Married with Children former co-star Ed O’Neill! And coming up in a future webisode there will be a Married with Children reunion which I have been dying to see ever since I heard about it. Other guest stars for this hysterical webseries are Gilbert Godfried, Coolio and Ed Asner.
Bud Bundy re-teams with his BFF Parker Lewis Can’t Lose’s Corin Nemec who he did a webseries with last year on MySpace! Together two of them play well off of each other! I am just dying to know why everyone seems to hate Corin Nemec in the webseries! I always thought he was so cute!!! Which he still is…BTW!!!
So check him and Faustino out on Crackle in a webseries about two Star-ving actors that will make you laugh out loud!!!
David Faustino and Corin Nemec are teaming up once again in a funny viral webseries, but this time instead trying to find who can pick up more girls they are Star-ving Hollywood actors. I can’t wait to see what the two come up with the webseries that premieres in January.
BTW they just signed Ed Asner to join the webseries that should be interesting.
I never knew what nose rape was before I saw Bud Bundy do it to a cop in the first video and now I know never to that if I don’t want to get arrested. BTW Corin Nemic did not have to nose rape a cop after Bud Bundy well you see what happened.
