Drinking with The Stars: 'The League's' Paul Scheer
You guys watching "The League" on FX? The half hour comedy following "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" on Thursdays? The one about a bunch of friends and their fantasy football league?
If not, you should definitely start.
Following five really funny dudes, a few of their wives and a coveted trophy that is kept by the winner of their fantasy league each year, football is merely the backdrop of the drama (and the funny) on this series.
So if you're into the game, you'll appreciate the few solid references they drop throughout an episode. But if you're not, you can still get into what's going on. Because at the end of the day, it's really the human drama that runs the show. Just like "Friday Night Lights"... the only difference is that you probably won't hear any "finger up the b-tt" jokes on "FNL" anytime soon, whereas "finger up the b-tt" jokes are no big deal on a "League" ep.
Speaking of, I just had a drink with one of the stars of the series, Mr. Paul Scheer --whom you'll probably recognize from VH1's "Best Week Ever" or MTV's "Human Giant" with Aziz Ansari of "Parks and Recreation" fame-- and this finger up the b-tt business came up.
We also talked about future guest stars, his successful yet still abused character Andre and curing cancer too.
Oh, Chad "Child Please" OchoCinco of The Cincinnati Bengals was mentioned as well and, yeah, I might've brought up former New York Giant and star of FOX's new "Brothers" sitcom, Michael Strahan... for obvious reasons.
Take a look...
You're now obsessed with watching "The League," no?
Again, Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. on FX, following "It's Always Sunny"... it's good stuff, definitely give it a shot.
