Does Fat add Funny?
Rob McElhenney (Mac from “It’s Alway Sunny in Philidelphia”) put on 50 pounds because he thought it would be funny to play his ususally fit character as a fat guy. That takes some real dedication to you craft! Haven’t seen any Mac “fat” pics, yet. But, I’ll be on the lookout. According to ScreenJunkies.com,
“Why? For the sheer comedy of playing his character as a fat guy. “It’s been disgusting to watch him go through with this adventure,” said Charlie Day. “We were a little on the fence about it for his own personal health and safety,” he added, “but it has definitely made Mac a lot funnier.”
But does more weight = more funny? I’m not totally sure…but i can’t wait to find out. Is it September yet? Read the whole Season 7 Sneak Peek at ScreenJunkies.com.
