Comedian/Writer/Actor Todd Barry arrives at the NYC premiere of The Wrestler, a film he co-stars in alongside Oscar hopeful Mickey Rourke. I asked Barry on the red carpet how it was to work with Rourke, and his eyes immediately beamed. “It was great. Surreal, because Diner’s one of my favorite movies ever. I was just weird to work with him,” he said as photographers snapped photos. “He’s very big and I’m very small,” he added.
As he made his way toward the paparazzi, I threw him a bit of a curveball. “What do you think of Mickey’s mustache?” I asked. “I like it,” a baffled Barry replied. When asked whether he liked them in general, the humble Pete Best of the Flight of the Conchords noted, “I don’t look good with a mustache, but it seems to be working for him.” See the movie, live the mustache, folks.
