Ryan Phillippe Meets a Gay Robot on 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson'Can a robot find true love with a Hollywood heartthrob? That's the question on the series premiere of 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central). "But wait," you're saying. "What's the deal with this show? And who is this 'Nick Swardson' person?"

Well, good question, you! Nicholas Robert "Nick" Swardson is a longtime stand-up comic and actor; he's most famous for his role on 'Reno 911!' And 'Pretend Time' is his new sketch comedy series. Even if you don't remember Nick, you'll probably recognize his guest star: Mr. Ryan Phillippe. The "hunky" actor is a fan of Swardson's unique brand of humor, so he agreed to show up for the premiere. But Ryan's reward for his generosity is to be hit on by a big gay robot.

The robot (voiced by Swardson) checks Phillippe's driver's license as the actor shows up for a party. Ryan just wants to get his license back and get through the door -- but the flirty android has different ideas. Plus, the robot has some "skills." He uses the classic "hold onto the ID for way too long while making 'casual' conversation" strategy, in order to put the moves on Ryan.

Here's a sample pick-up line from the gay robot: "I can tell that you're very wise. ... Underneath your insecurity is a soul deeper than a Grand Canyon made out of dreams and whispers." Wow. Smooth. Ryan is skeptical at first, and may not be willing to "go robot." But the metal lover just might be able to win him over.
