my name is judge

Who saw MWC-alum Judge Reinhold on the season/series? finale of Arrested Development last night?

Last year I took Gardner Campbell's film class and one of the movies we analyzed was Fast Times at Ridgemont High. When we got to talking about Judge Reinhold, he addressed the rumor that Judge Reinhold went to Mary Washington. And what was the verdict? Dr. Campbell said that he searched the student directories and never found a Judge Reinhold that went to our school. I'm not sure if he said whether or not he searched for his real name: Edward Reinhold Jr. But Dr. Campbell concluded that it was merely a myth. However, on his IMDB page, it says he was educated at Mary Washington College- and you know IMDB rarely lies. So... I'm gonna go ahead and call him an alum.

Also, anybody catch UCB performer/former SNL cast member Rob Riggle as the politician who comes to the aid of comatosed Buster? Well, I can't say for sure, but he just might be coming to Mary Washington in March or April with a few other recognizable faces from Arrested Development, Best Week Ever, and The Daily Show for an improv extravaganza. I'm working on it. So stay tuned for news on that.

Did you know that the actress who played the long lost Bluth sister/prostitute last night is Jason Bateman's real sister? Thanks, Life & Style magazine!

This is Mer. I forgot my log in. Yes Katie, I did know that. Infact, before this episode, they had been trying to have Justine play a love interest for Michael Bluth in previous seasons but decided it was gross. No complaints here especailly from a show that for three seasons let us think incest was okay (and kinda hot). A few of the Christopher Guest regualrs have been showing up through out the seasons as well. All and all, a beautiful book end to my favorite show. Of course, the return of Henry "Fonzie" Winkler and Scott"Chachi" Baio would have been nice. Baio, of course, has the best named TV character of all time..Bob Lawblah. Say it outloud or to your self or both. Either way, you will laugh.

On another note, is the AD member you speak of PWaldo none other than Amy Pohler's better half? The two also will be in a movie playing a bro and sis ice skaint team. I am sure you know all about it though. Much love.

I checked again. The registrar has absolutely no record of Reinhold's ever attending MWC, under either name.

The only person left to ask is the Judge himself.
