Artie Lange


  1. Stephen Root, Office Space, 1999.   The hilarious satire was based on auteur Mike Judge’s  mini-toons about  an office worker called Milton Waddams.  Now he had to find a live-action version. Artie was seen but Stephen got to the root ot Milton the collator – in such thick glasses, that he needed cotact lenses under them in  order tofind  anything,,, such as his rapidly  famous red stapler. Judge was father of MTV’s Beavis & Butthead  toons, just as Office Spacefathered  Horrible Bosses, 2010. Jennifer Aniston midwifed both.
  2. Paul Giamatti, Man on the Moon, 1999.  Lange and Giamatti were the only two actors dirtector Milos Forman looked over for Bob Zmuda – the writing partner of the bio-pic’s subject, surreal comic Andy Kaufman. Zmuda helped him create his boorish lounge-act alter ego, Tony Clifton. Lange said his test was heckling the Czech Forman doing Kaufman’s act. That must have been worth seeing!

  3. David Herman, Idiocracy, 2004.    In the  mix for the Secretary of Stated of what autuer Mike Judge first called: The United States of Uhh-merica… such a dumbed-down world that, according to Austin Chronicle critic Marjorie Baumgarten, it’s as if Beavis and Butt-head rule America.

  4. Wass Stevens, The Wrestler, 2008.    Among the actors seen by director Darren Aronofsky forthe role of Nick Volpe.
