Forgive the Squirrel Queen for gushing here for a moment about her huge crush on the giant, goofy comedian/actor Diedrich Bader.
He just cracks me up. Anyone who can be in both Office Space and Napoleon Dynamite (Rex Kwon Do, Bow to your Sensei!) is a genius. (Don’t remind me about the Beverly Hillbillies. I’m trying to forget about that one.)
His resume just got a lot heftier, in my royal opinion, with his recent performance on the latest season of Reno 911 doing a spot-on Dog the Bounty Hunter impersonation. “God don’t make junk. Except for YOU!!”
Reno is always hysterical. How can you not love Weigel and Dangle and Clemmy and Jones and the rest of Reno’s finest.
The big Bader also made a recent appearance on Tony Shaloub’s Monk as “the Naked Guy.” He’s a man comfortable with his body, whether Monk was comfortable with it or not.
Add his singular goofy work as Oswald Lee Harvey on The Drew Carey Show and there’s more to love than in a case of Buzz Beer.
