Music: Otis Redding (he is the shit)
So, I have noticed in my tv watching escapades, that the casts of certain groupings of shows are very.. what's the word.. let's go with incestuous.. that's a good word (well, actually it isn't).
Now, sure. Groupings of shows of similar types or aimed at certain demographics will have similar actor types (or actors, period) in them. And specific actors probably like certain types of shows or like working with this writer, or that director, yadda yadda yadda infinity infinity plus two called it no takebacks you're a jerk I'm going home...
Ahem. Now Arthur is you can't play nice while blogging, you can go stand in the corner until you are fit to rejoin civilized society. Hah! jokes on you. My computer is in the corner already.
But seriously now folks. This came to my attention recently while watching Veronica Mars and How I Met Your Mother specifically. So I am going to list off shows with the same actors off the top of my head that I have watched recently in one crazy chain/web/mess.
How I met your Mother
Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog
And well the list could go on and on, but I am f-en tired.
I will say this though. How I me your Mother and Veronica Mars have so many different people making appearances - it's madness.
Also, most of these are at most 2 steps removed from Joss Wheddon, which is nuts - I mean the guy controls everything.
And I have no problem with that.
