“Demetri Martin will play will play Paul DePodesta, a computer-wielding Harvard-educated hotshot who became Beane’s right-hand. DePodesta went on to a much-maligned tenure as general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers and has most recently been working in the Padres organization.”
I don’t know what I expected, but between The Moneyball movie and The Blind Side movie, and what’s sure to be a Liar’s Poker movie, there’s going to be a lot of weird casting going one.
We’ve been getting hits to my Demetri Martin better than Dane Cook post with the keyword ‘stolen joke’ so I thought I’d check it out. Lo and behold!
While I think this it’s possible this is a case of what Malcolm Gladwell wrote about earlier this year (the “phenomenon of simultaneous discoveryâ€”what science historians call â€œmultiplesâ€”), I’m not inclined to give Dane Cook the benefit of the doubt. That’s what he gets for those “There’s only one OCTOBER” commercials in ’07. I’ll never forgive him.
“ONLY people in glass houses should throw stones.” I was hoping the other videos would be as funny, but they weren’t. Still, imagine Demetri Martin in the “Only One October” ad campaign from last year. He would have crushed and I wouldn’t have wanted to throw my remote at the TV every half inning when Dane Cook came on.
To recap, here is a list of 2 people who ARE better than Dane Cook in those commercials, followed by a list of people who WOULD BE better than Dane Cook in those commercials:
