BTWF: Cedric Yarbrough on The Bernie Mac Show
May 21st, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Speechless. [ Comments: none ]

Before Cedric Yarbrough was a ladies’ man on Speechless, he was settling down with his perfect woman on The Bernie Mac Show. Even when he was 31, he knew how to steal the scene in that 2005 episode. That and what sexy legs he has.

Yarbrough wrote this about filming that 2005 episode, “Goals of this scene: 1) Show how little Jordan hates Monroe. 2) Let Cedric just improvise the whole scene & try to crack Bernie. I got ‘em after the 1st yodel. Man, to make #BernieMac genuinely laugh, someone who had made millions of people gut-bustingly laugh for many years, including me, you feel like you won. Shout out to lil #JeremySuarez for being such a hater. & yes, there’s something wrong with me. #TheBernieMacShow #Improv #improvcomedy #ripberniemac #countrymusicsucks #legs”

Side note: I still miss Bernie Mac. He will always be one of the nicest people I ever interviewed. And I am also still pissed that ABC cancelled Speechless. However, I doubt Yarbrough will be showless for a long time.


BTWF: Simon Helberg for HP
May 16th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous. [ Comments: none ]

Before Simon Helberg was an Aerospace Engineer on The Big Bang Theory, he was a computer scientist for HP. He looks the same now as he did when he was 24 in that 2005 commercial.


BTWF: James Holzhauer on The Chase
May 15th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Before James Holzhauer was on an unbelievable winning streak on Jeopardy, he broke two records on The Chase. He looks the same now as he did when he was 30 in that 2014 episode.


BTWF: Tim Conway for Laub bread
May 14th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous. [ Comments: none ]

Before Tim Conway was making the world laugh on The Carol Burnett Show, he was making them laugh in Cleveland selling Laub bread. Even at 24 back in 1960, he knew how to make us laugh with comedic brilliance.


BTWF: Rick Springfield in Zoot
May 14th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]

Before Rick Springfield had several #1 hits on his own, he was the guitarist in the band Zoot. How trippy is it to see the then 20-year-old play guitar the same way in 1970 as he does today? I totally recognized his distinctive arm movement when just that body part of his was on camera. What does that say about me? That I have seen him perform way too many times in concert and in the movie Hard to Hold.
