Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Twitter

Jeez, Denis Leary. You couldn't wait A WEEK to insult the recently deceased? Allow some time for some of us to grieve. Pretty insensitive.

After 'mourning' the late, great media legend Dick Clark, the emotionally fragile fire fighter from Rescue Me took to his Twitter barely 24 hours after, and posted this snarky comment:

Denis Leary & The Bear: A Cautionary Tale

Filed under: Oops!

Sure, Denis Leary can take on life-threatening fires, but can he take on bears? The answer is no.

According to the man himself, Leary ignored wildlife warnings posted around his home in Connecticut, and the results were terrifying:

"5:30 on a Sunday morning about a month ago…I get up, (get a) hot cup of coffee, go outside, have a cigarette…I'm in my underwear, not a bright thing to do either. And like that, a bear pops up in the driveway out of the woods…It's a huge black bear…He's right in front of me."

And that’s not all Leary had to say on the subject:

"The first thing they say (is) make yourself big. Me in my underwear, I look like an even bigger toothpick…Bears will eat you because their cubs are nearby but they will also eat you if you're just an annoying guy…All of a sudden the bear looks at us and he just ambles off. I felt like I was a tall cow and I froze up."

The moral of the story is this:

Don’t ask Denis Leary about his bear encounters, unless you’re prepared to face the catastrophic consequence of having an image of Leary in his underwear etched into your poor brain forever.

The Anti-Sex & The City Comes To TV

Filed under: TV NewsSex & The City

Somehow, we don't see this doing as well, but a tip of the cosmo for trying.

Denis Leary has developed a new series of FX, which he describes at the “the anti-Sex and the City." The pilot is still being written and the plot revolves around a "darker version" of modern day single woman. Taking the starring role in the project is Callie Thorne, one of Denis' costars from Rescue Me. She describes the show as:

“… more AbFab, which is a very good thing. The idea is that they’re single and that they’re not the type to whine about boys and babies; they’re more apt to make fun of the girls who do. Sometimes these two women aren’t likable at all.”

If women won't like them, then what is the point? You can't pull six seasons and two movies out of characters no one likes!

We don't know about this. We think we see a flop.

Thoughts?

Maura Tierney Returns To TV!

Filed under: TV News

We're so glad she's feeling better!

Maura Tierney is returning to television to reprise her role on FX's Rescue Me!

Her character won't appear until Season 7 since they're shooting both Season 6 and 7 back to back, but show creators Denis Leary and Peter Tolan are thrilled to have her back. Says Tolan:

"We loved working with her — that was kind of a big deal to get her. We have a deal where we can use her for four episodes. And since we have that deal, we will take advantage of it."

Maura had to drop out of NBC's drama Parenthood to undergo breast cancer treatment, but she did go back to work in Feburary for the play North Atlantic in Los Angeles back in February. Her rep says:

"She has finished treatment and is doing very well and is happy to move forward with the next phase of her life."

Good for her!
