Will The State reunite? Quite possibly - VIDEO
Thomas Lennon, currently of the Comedy Central series Reno 911! and formerly of MTV's cult sketch series The State, was on the podcast Guys with Feelings recently to discuss all things Thomas Lennon. The podcast is a lot of fun, but to just hear the Tom Lennon portion, skip ahead to about 1 hour and 19 minutes.
Lennon talked about the upcoming ping-pong movie he wrote with Ben Garrant called Balls of Fury (trailer below), and about the fifth season of Reno 911! that just wrapped taping (also, he wishes his character, Jim Dangle, didn't have to wear those tiny shorts).
The coolest news for us State fans is that, according to Lennon, there is "serious discussion" about some kind of new State project, either a movie or a made-for-TV sort of thing. How awesome is that? It's very awesome, but we should also keep in mind that this is not an official announcement. Still, "serious discussion" is better than "no discussion at all," so I'm going to keep my hopes high, and I suggest y'all do the same. That way, if it doesn't happen, we can comfort one another with hugs and s'mores.
