EXCLUSIVE: The Nerds Get Revenge on 'Rules of Engagement' With Guest Star Booger (We Mean Curtis Armstrong)
Booger (sorry, Curtis) is stopping by tonight's 'Rules of Engagement' (Thurs., Oct. 27, 8:30PM ET on CBS) playing himself -- yes, an actor named Curtis Armstrong who's often recognized as a hygienically-challenged nerd named Booger from ... oh, you get the idea.
So how does Booger come to meet the group? Turns out he shared a cab with Adam, who's a big 'Revenge of the Nerds' fan. And you know who was in 'Revenge of the Nerds'? Instant connection.
Enjoy this Booger-tastic exclusive sneak peek ...
What this sets up is, in a lot of ways, a "scam of the week" episode, something we saw a lot of last season. But I get the feeling this might be the last one we see for a while, mainly because the "big scam," which is Hugh's massive development deal, is going to swallow up not only the Malloys, but everyone around them.
(S02E12) I don't know about you, but since Psych returned with new episodes I've noticed a bit of tweaking with the format. Nothing major, mind you, just some minor things to shake it up a bit. And, because of those tiny tweaks, the show has a somewhat different feel to it. I guess that's what happens as a show, even a crime-comedy like Psych, matures.
When you think of Revenge of the Nerds what comes to mind? Classic 80's movie? Naked sorority sisters? Morality story on how the meek can inherit the earth? Bush (and not the president)?
That's what came to my mind when I recently saw the film. However, something else popped into my brain as well while I was watching the end credits. Not only did a number of Nerds stars go on to other successful movies, but they also went and became fairly big television stars as well. Here are five who went onto small-screen fame.
For a while there, Moonlighting was great, wasn't it? It's a show that truly defines the 80s (the clothes, the attitude), it was really fun and clever, and made Bruce Willis an A list star. Sometimes it's easy to forget how SCREWED UP the show got there for a while. Almost every episode had some problem (script delays, fighting between cast members), and there were whole episodes that were affected by a writers strike and episodes where costars Allyce Beasley and Curtis Armstrong had to take over. It was a rather up and down show, especially in the last couple of years. But it was always entertaining and even joked about these delays and problems in a good, wink-wink sort of way.
