Welcome to this week’s Politics As Usual, I’m your host Shanknasty. This week we’re going to be meeting the new elected Congressman from New Jersey’s District 3, and former Eagles Pro Bowl Right Tackle, Jon Runyan.

What? You thought only the guys in your fantasy draft get noticed by the ladies?

From his bio on runyanforcongress.com:

Jon Daniel Runyan, 36, was born in Flint, Michigan. His father worked for General Motors for nearly 30 years and his Mom largely stayed home and raised Jon and his two younger twin brothers.

Ah yes. Flint, Michigan. The home of Michael Moore, Jim Abbott, and MC Breed. “Breed” as he’s known (or was known, he died in 2008 due to kidney failure), is the first rapper come out of the Midwest and actually did a song called “Gotta Get Mine” with Tupac. Who did Nothin But Trouble with Demi Moore. Who did A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon. Go ahead, look it up.

This Month’s Hero: Patrick Swayze
No caption required.

No caption required.

     I know that the Hero of the Month is usually posted at the end of the month, but for this man I could not wait any longer. As everyone knows, Patrick Swayze passed away this week after losing his battle against pancreatic cancer. Swayze has always been a personal hero to me and I am paying him tribute to making him one of my patented Heroes of the Month. Although I’ve done many sarcastic Heroes posts, I save the serious ones for my favorite people/fictional characters/inanimate objects, including Harry Kalas, Blade and The Truck.

This Month’s Hero: Tyler Perry
Don't give me that look, you know what you did.

Don't give me that look, you know what you did.

     This month’s Hero is the great Tyler Perry. This man had done more to infuriate me in the past few years than almost anyone on the face of the planet. Except Tim Tebow. I hate hearing that damn name. Why the hell is everyone on that dude’s balls! Bring it down Clint, easy. Okay, back to Tyler Perry. I have included a summary of his works from IMDb:

This Month’s Hero: The Cube Franchise
This dude is in trouble.

This dude is in trouble.

     Well, I’ve been storing up some Heroes for a while and rather than waiting for the next month, I’m going to pleasure you by going back in time and posting Heroes from past months. Unorthodox I know, but that’s just who I am this week. As soon as this has sat for a while (read: gets pushed off the front page) I’ll move it to it’s proper month. If I can figure out how to change the date of posting. Anyway, Enjoy!

With the recent announcement of the beginning of the end of the WGA Strike, it’ll be interesting to see whether show creator Mitch Hurwitz and the rest of the Arrested Development crew will come through with a movie that has been rumored since the show was canceled after the third season in February 2006.

In an interview on February 2, Jason Bateman confirmed that there were talks of an Arrested Development movie, between Hurwitz, Ron Howard, and Jeffrey Tambor.

Dylan Walsh in Congo

Dr. Dylan Walsh in Congo

Now I know why I love Nip/Tuck so much. Dylan Walsh, who plays Dr. Sean McNamara in FX’s Nip/Tuck, was cast as Dr. Peter Elliot in the modern marvel of American cinema, Congo (1995).

This also happened to be my favorite movie from my childhood, so it only makes sense that my young adulthood would be heavily influenced by Nip/Tuck.

Dylan Walsh in Nip/Tuck

Dr. Dylan Walsh in Nip/Tuck

It’s amazing how Hollywood develops an actor’s skills. Dylan Walsh plays a doctor in both of his major roles, and over the course of a little less than 10 years, Dr. Walsh went from studying ape culture (and their insatiable thirst for diamonds) in the Congo region of Africa to becoming one of the most prominent plastic surgeons in the Miami and Los Angeles areas.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Congo, Dr. Walsh persuaded the writers of Nip/Tuck to showcase both of his talents, by performing plastic surgery on an ape. One of Walsh’s close friends in Hollywood, whom he met on the set of Congo where she was an extra, is Kiki the Gorilla. She acts as herself in the episode from Season 3 (Episode 2, Kiki), and needs plastic surgery done to remove a scar from her face, so her online-gorilla-lover will mate with her when they finally meet for the first time in gorilla.

I’ll save you the trouble – McNamara/Troy does the surgery, but when Kiki and the male gorilla meet, the male gorilla notices something is different and kills her.

Webcams don’t lie.
