Casey Wilson makes me laugh. A lot. I love the way she does physical comedy. I love her rapid-fire pop culture references when a character she plays has a hissyfit. I loved her on ABC's sitcom, Happy Endings. The sitcom's promos did not lie. That show was like Friends. Only with black people. She played Penny. I totally dug Penny's friendship with Max, the Chicago bear cub who was one of the most refreshing gay male sitcom characters I'd seen in years. That slacker was just like gay dudes I knew when I lived in Milwaukee and spent time in Chicago. He ate carbs, he was no slave to fashion, he'd rather watch a ballgame on TV instead of a Sex and the City marathon, he found good men well over 40 to be sexy and he could name five classic movie westerns that did not have any musical numbers performed by Judy Garland or Doris Day. He was a regular guy, a great pal, who just happened to be gay.
Casey Wilson premieres tonight in a new sitcom that airs on NBC. It's called Marry Me. She's a 32 year old woman who's been dating a man for six years. She wants him to propose to her.
Back in 1987, NBC had a sitcom called My Two Dads.
If My Two Dads had been done that way, Marry Me could be sort of a follow-up to it. Watch and let me know what you think. Break a leg, Casey.
