[ # ] David Faustino talks Star-ving!!!
January 19th, 2009 under David Faustino/ Corin Nemec, Interviews

David Faustino aka Bud Bundy launched the hysterical Star-ving on 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? – How did Star-ving come about?
David Faustino – “Star-ving” 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 “very close” 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 Corin’s life. We obviously exaggerate the sh!t out of a lot of it and really crank the volume up to 11. It’s ’a curb your enthusiasm meets the anti-Entourage…on acid.

SOW – What can my readers expect from the webseries?
DF – Whew! What can’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 that’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. It’s not for people who are easily offended. We don’t push the envelope; we shred it.

SOW – 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 they’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 couldn’t be happier with their performances.

SOW – 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 “Star-ving”, so it’s kind of come full circle for us in a way. Hmmm, ‘why does everyone hate Corin within the show?’ I guess cuz it’s just funnier than them all liking him. Right?

SOW – Have Corin and you used any of the tips you learned when you did Neil Strauss’ webseries on MySpace?
DF – I’d be lying if I said I never used any of it…

SOW – What was it like doing the Married With Children reunion webisode? Do you think we might get a real one soon?
DF -That’s a good question. I know that there’s been talk about it for years, but nothing’s ever come of it. Maybe they’ll make one with a different cast one day, and throw us cameo bones… (that’s where the idea for the “married…with children THE MOVIE” episode on “Star-ving” came from)

SOW – 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 we’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 “Robot Chicken” and decided Seth owed me one, lol… he was friggin’ GREAT in the episode… wait till you see it!

SOW – What else do you have coming up?
DF – Have a film called “Busted” coming out with Charlie Murphy and David Alan Grier. Also, a film being released on DVD I think this month called “High Hopes” with Jason Mewes, Corin, Danny Trejo, Andy Dick and a bunch of others… Also, looking forward to another season of “Star-ving”. 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!!!
