Paul Scheer Had a Creepy Jack Nicholson Impersonator as His Best Man (VIDEO)

Paul Scheer, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'On the surface, it sounded like a fun idea. Paul Scheer hired a Jack Nicholson impersonator to act as his best man at his wedding. He talked about how wrong it ultimately went, though, on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

Scheer had written up a pun-filled script for the guy to recite, but he ultimately forgot everything he was supposed to say. That's when Scheer and his guests learned that this is a guy you do not want to allow to ever go off script.

He said "Yummy!" over and over again, cracked a joke about coming from a pool party at Roman Polanski's house and then tried to set himself up to get hugs from the people there.

No more pit! I figured that the giant hole would eventually be filled in, but I had a feeling that it would take much longer than this. But after only 12 episodes of the entire series, Ann now sees a dirt lot when she looks out of the window of her home. Oh, progress.

Speaking of progress, I haven't been the biggest fan of Andy, but I enjoyed him in this episode. Before, when he turned up, it was mostly just to show how pathetic he is, but this week, in addition to that, he actually helped move the plot along in a big way. He gave up $100,000 for Ann, which honestly, seems like a terrible idea to me. I understand that he's in love with her and all, but there's no guarantee that she's going to get back with him, and a hundred grand is a hundred grand, you know?

New FX comedies include Louie from Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. from HilariousFX has announced a couple of interesting new additions to its slate of comedies - The League, about a fantasy football league, and Louie, an autobiographical sitcom starring Louis C.K. (Variety broke the news Wednesday). The League features some talented comedians, namely Paul Scheer (from Human Giant), Nick Kroll, and Jon Lajoie. But it's Louie that I'm most interested in.

Louis C.K. is, hands down, the funniest and most productive comedian working in America today. He has taped his third stand-up special in three years, called Hilarious, which is set to come out later this year or early next year. I've seen him perform the material for it, and it's just as funny as the first two. And he's already dropped most of that material in favor of a new hour of material intended for another special. That's a tremendous pace for any stand-up comedian. George Carlin, the guy who inspired C.K. to do this, is the only other comic I can think of to keep to a schedule like that.

Yep, I got a Twitter. It's part of my plan to plaster the Internet with links to my must-read blog posts about '90s indie rock and that handsome bastard Neil Patrick Harris (don't ask). Fortunately for you, some clever TV stars also use Twitter for fun and shameless self-promotion.

Here are ten fan-friendly TV celebs worth stalking on Twitter. Unlike that fake Stephen Colbert, these guys are all one-hundred percent, real-life paparazzo magnets.
