What what in the butt?
How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor is apparently releasing a memoir called One Big Blissful Thing in April. Writing a book isn't easy and we definitely applaud him for branching out into the literary world, but isn't this a little premature?
We realize he's a successful Hollywood actor that has come from humble Ohio roots, but he's only 37 and he's only famous for one show!
What kind of wisdom does he really have to share with the world? According to Amazon's description of the book, stuff like this:
The story of one man’s unlikely spiritual awakening—this is Eat, Pray, Love for those who would rather be reading McSweeney’s . Josh Radnor grew up in Ohio. He was driven to school in a big yellow bus. He watched The Cosby Show and John Hughes movies. He also went on to become a successful actor in Hollywood. How then, in 2007, did he end up drinking an indigenous plant medicine called ayahuasca with a shaman in Brazil?
We won't jump to any conclusions about the quality of his book and we're crossing our fingers it's a hit with readers, but that description doesn't exactly make us want to read it — or give us any clue of what it's about.
What does being an actor have to do with drinking ayahuasca? Is this Eat, Prey, Love starring Josh Radnor, Bill Cosby and a big yellow bus? Does Julia Roberts at least have a cameo?
We're just joking around, of course, but feel like spiritual journeys take a lifetime and he's still got a lifetime ahead of him, so why write about it now? Who knows though, maybe this will be the best memoir Hollywood has ever churned out!
