I mean, how fucking pathetic can you get?

(Yes, I realize they make more money with one info-mercial than I make in 10 years.)

IMO, yes.

Yep. Infomercials are a one way ticket to the afterlife.

¿You mean like Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley?

Lindsay Wagner on the mattress commercial.

Have you ever seen an actor come back from an infomercial with a hit movie? Me neither.

well, its either informercials or bukakke.

Ashley Simpson will be the next great infomercial star.

But, you're right. I never did see Robert Culp in anything after the oxygen cocktail infomercial.

it's a definite sign of circling the drain

Info-mercials are just an affirmation that an actor's career is over.

However, actors who do info-mercials can soothe their egos with the money they make from these TV spots.

Peggy Fleming made more money from a few years of late-night info-mercials for an exercise machine than she did in her entire career as a skater/entertainer. And she made a lot of money during her career.

Don't forget Judith Light (sp? She's from "Who's the Boss") with that acne cream infomercial.

I met that little sack of shit in New Oleans back in 1996. I was at the NAPTE convention where all the deals for the new sitcoms are made. They had the convention at the convention center in New Orleans. I met Norris, Ponch from Chips, Lee Majors, Martha Stewart,Bob Viela, Hasselhoff, Cybill Shepard, etc.

Well this little shit Mickey Rooney was there all by himself with noone around. So I thought I would go up and ask for an autograph trying to be nice since noone else was there to see him. He says "You know who I am?" I say yeah, Mickey Rourke. ( couldn't think of his last name and thought I had it)

He got pissed and in a condecending tone spouted some shit to his body guard, then scribbled some shit on my paper and turned away. I said, well Fuck you! You little washed up wrinked sack prick!. Then I walked off.

Soon after he had told the Union Goons there about it and they went looking for me. I avoided aprehension. All the Union guys in charge were Italians.
