Adam made a surprise appearance on the Jay Leno’s Tonight Show Wednesday night. Nic Cage was being interviewed about his role in the upcoming film Kick Ass. He was describing how he grew up on the Batman TV series and emulated Adam’s performance for the role. At which point, Jay brought Adam out to face off with Nic in a Batman triva game. Watch below:
At the CBS Studios in Studio City, I did an on-camera interview with regards to THE FAMILY GUY for FOX Promotions. All went well and the writers and producers there were all a very clever guys. They seem to ‘understand’ my humor. The NBC pilot that I did a few years back, titled, LOOKWELL was always mentioned by these talented young guys. We all laughed as the pilot gags were remembered. About a week later I get a call from my agent saying the same talented writers and producers want to do a series of sketches on what Adam West is watching on the FOX Network. Once I read the inventive scripts I knew I should do these clever, yet very offbeat sketches. We filmed them all within an eight hour day….starting around 11 ayem until 7pm….complete with set props and costume changes. The crew went from one sketch to another. It was just that fast. I was very pleased with the outcome. And from my e-mails so are many of you. Bat wishes, ADAM WEST
Here’s a little gem we came across on the web! Lookwell was a TV series pilot created in the early 90’s by Robert Smigel and Conan O’Brian that starred Adam West as Lookwell, an ex-TV detective with continued delusions of crime-fighting. The show never got picked up, which is truly a shame because it’s hilarious!
A new LendingTree ad campaign called “You To The Rescue” launched yesterday featuring 3 TV ads narrated by Adam West. To see what it would be like if Adam West was your inner monologue, check them out below: Let us know what you think of them! And keep an eye out for them on TV. There is also a website that accompanies the campaign, featuring a cool superhero utility belt design.
