Welcome To The Captain

My new thrilling discovery is that Fran Kranz - the goofy kid who starred in Jake Kasdan's The TV Set as the terrible actor the studio loves who ruins David Duchovny's pilot - apparently did such a fine job ruining that pilot that CBS has cast him in an actual pilot. They're very different: The TV Set had a show called "The Wexford Chronicles" about a writer who comes home, whereas "Welcome To The Captain" is about a writer who thinks about coming home but, uh, doesn't. Here's the link.

In other news, I sent a fawning e-mail to ESPN's fantasy expert, Matthew Berry, which he then published. Most people would be embarrassed to link to this, but I am apparently pretty shameless. I'm down on the bottom.
