What you (don't) know about the creator of My Name is Earl

Anyone with an eye for detail knows that the Internet Movie Database isn't always accurate in its bio or trivia sections. This isn't so much the fault of the site as it the fault of people who submit information, but in the case of My Name is Earl creator Gregory Thomas Garcia, he has only himself to blame. It seems that Garcia actually submitted some information about himself for his IMDb page which stated he was the grandson of Cantinflas, a Mexican comedian who passed away over ten years ago. The thing is, it's not true. Garcia was just having a bit of fun, but that little tidbit has made it's way into a few news stories about him. I've always found the truth to be overrated, anyway.

Here's a fun fact about Greg Garcia. He started as a board op on Tony Kornheiser's local radio show in Washington, DC in the early/mid nineties. Connecticut School of Broadcasting here I come!

Journalists shouldn't be using imdb, or the internet in general, as a source in and of itself. Then again, why work for a living? That's so old school.

I like seeing one of his amigos at the end of each episode.
