Jim Breuer[edit]

I'm probably going to remove or severely shorten the anecdote about McKay being responsible for Breuer's departure from SNL. If anyone thinks it belongs on the Jim Breuer page, feel free to move it there. I don't think it is well-written, well-sourced, or all that relevant. But here it is:

McKay was claimed to have been the main reason Jim Breuer was cut from SNL. In an interview on The Howard Stern Show on June 7, 2010[1], Breuer told the story of a Godzilla sketch with Tracy Morgan that resulted, Breuer claimed, in McKay becoming jealous of his talent. McKay allegedly used his influence to try repeatedly to kill the Breuer/Morgan Godzilla sketch for the live show. Breuer said that he finally quit in disgust over McKay using his influence as head writer to attempt to get Breuer out the door.

If you think it should stay, say something here, soon, or it's likely to come out completely. Sjb0926 (talk) 21:11, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

I think it should probably go. Henrymrx (t·c) 04:47, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Expanding / explaining template[edit]

I came across this template:

{{Mediocre American Man Trilogy}}

There isn't any word on Wikipedia about the so-called Mediocre American Man Trilogy, so I thought maybe here someone could help out. --Soetermans (talk) 23:08, 24 June 2008 (UTC)


Does Adam Mckay have a neurophysiological disorder? I saw an interview with him on Charlie Rose and he definitely appeared to have the involuntary head-rocking thing going on. Matt2h (talk) 05:44, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I definitely saw this as well, it was very odd and I have not been able to find anything about it on the net. (talk) 01:39, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
