[Underappreciated] Craig Robinson

See that guy up there in that video? He may be one of the most underappreciated comedians in Hollywood.

Somebody needs to get him headlining role in a movie.

Eddie Murphy : 80′s :: Craig Robinson : 2000′s

Bold. I know. He might not be the most recgonizable talent right now, but its damn sure that he is one with the most potential. Everything he’s in he kills. Remember the bouncer scene in Knocked Up? The fact that you can even remember that scene is all thanks to him. 

Yea, he’s in The Office too. You know, he’s mitta rogers.

Seriously, has he had a role in anything and not been the best part of the scene? Pineapple Express as the slighty homo-erotic badass thug?? Classic. Zack & Miri Make a Porno? Just watch the trailer and tell me you’re not excited to see him in it.

 

Which brings me to these sitdotcoms that he made a while back. The basic idea of the 16 episode series was that Robinson is a driving instructor pitted against another driving instructor in a series of challenges to see who would get to own a bigger driving school when the owner retires. The same with all these sitdotcoms that pop up, its basically a commercial with a plot (Volvo sponsered the series). But Robinson is on point as always and makes this one of if not the best sitdotcoms out there.

You can watch more over at the Mr. Robinson’s Driving School website to hold you over till The Office comes back on, cause you know I’m gonna be TiVo’ing the shit out of that (note: I don’t actually have TiVo, I’m just gonna watch it online).

    He’s been doing his thing for awhile and I’m happy for dude. He is basically running with the Comedy equivalent of the Wu-Tang Clan.

    You got the Rza (Judd Apatow) and the rest of the crew (Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, and Steve Carell).

    Other them is the faction of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Lee, Paul Rudd, Justin Long, Jason Segal, John C. Reily and throw Craig Robinson in the bunch.

    Comedy Gold in that bunch! They are really the only group of people (minus Will Ferrell’s last movies) I run to the theater to see.
