He would do that, wouldn't he?
Rob McElhenney, the creator and co-star of the hit show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, has gained 50 pounds for the upcoming 7th season!
Because he thought it would be funny!
His character, Mac, consistently expresses his pride over his shapely physique in the show, so Rob thought it would be funny to play him this season as a fat guy.
Castmate Charlie Day, star of the upcoming film Horrible Bosses, feared for Mac's personal health during the process, as he said:
“It’s been disgusting to watch him go through with this adventure. We were a little on the fence about it for his own personal health and safety, but it has definitely made Mac a lot funnier.”
Normally, we'd have to question how funny his wife thinks the new cushion for the pushin' is, but since Kaitlin Olson ALSO plays a character on the show, we imagine she was in on it too.
We can't wait to see the ridiculous plot line that has developed from Rob's wider waistline and what the rest of the Always Sunny gang has to say about it!
