David Alan Grier thought no one would watch Seinfeld and Ace Ventura
January 28th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Howard Stern. [ Comments: none ]

Many actors have turned down roles they have regretted. Others have auditioned for parts for things they never thought would see the light of day and they became huge hits. David Alan Grier has experienced both.

Back when he was working on In Living Color, Jim Carrey asked him to co-star in his little movie called Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and he turned it down. A short time later, he went to the premiere and watch the comedy next to his friend. Afterward, DAG thought no one is going to see this because it was just too crazy. Even Chris Rock agreed with him. As we know, both of them were way off.

That was not the only time he was way off. Grier told Howard Stern today, that he also auditioned for Seinfeld. During the tryout, he “thought this show is going to suck.” Thus, he did not care if he got the role of George Costanza that eventually went to Jason Alexander.

Once again he was wrong. One role he was right not to say no to was The Carmichael Show. One of the greatest shows ever to grace our televisions.

Imagine how different Grier’s career would have been if he did not turn down or laugh off all of these roles. Considering none of the stars of those projects did Dancing with the Stars, I think we have our answer.

BTW I wonder how he felt when he auditioned for his current show The Cool Kids. Which I like even though it had a really bad pilot.

David Alan Grier nails Ben Carson!
October 15th, 2015 under David Alan Grier, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]

Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Donald Trump again yesterday on The Tonight Show and this time he had a special guest help him out. That special guest is David Alan Grier and he played Ben Carson. The two of them were on the phone watching the Democratic Debate and they made jokes about all of the people running against them. They even made fun of the people they were portraying. The Cowardly Lion was so good at playing Carson, I fell asleep watching this bit at least 6 times.
So lie back and watch and nap and then watch as the two of them sat some hysterical things about the jokes who are running for President.


BTWF roles: David Alan Grier in Beer

Before David Alan Grier was cast as the Cowardly Lion in The Wiz: Live, he bravely prevented a robbery in Beer. He looks the same now as he did when he was 29 in that 1985 movie.


David Alan Grier is literally the butt of all jokes!
May 9th, 2013 under Celeb Oops, David Alan Grier. [ Comments: none ]

David Alan Grier was on ESPN’s Sportstation and he had a little wardrobe malfunction. After the show he took to Twitter to explain what happened by saying, “It was a setup! @SportsNation stuck like 3 mics on my belt n wires n just dragged a brotha down! Oh the humanity!”
I don’t know what he is so upset about, I think that is the funniest thing he has done since In Living Color! I mean I said “Oh the humanity” after I saw Dance Flick, now that was something to really be embarrassed about.
