Top 72 People You'd Like to Guest Riff Countdown!
« on: September 23, 2008, 11:26:03 AM »
Here's how it works!

You were asked to send me a list of the top 25 people you'd like to see guest riff on a Rifftrax. 22 ballots were received, and the people were ranked on a point system allowing 25 points for a #1 choice, 24 for a #2, and all the way down to 1 point for #25. The points were added up, and what follows are your selections.

Tiebreakers work like such: If two people have equal pointage, the movie that appeared on the most lists ranks higher. If those people appeared on the same amount of lists, I went with whatever ranked highest on the individual list. A person that was someone's #4 beats another person's #6, for example. And then if they still were tied I just picked.

What we don't want: your entire lists posted, cloggin' up yer thread
What we do want: everything else. Bitch/kick yourself/pontificate as much as you want, because that's the point!

71. Francesco Marciuliano - 25 points
(1 of 22 lists. Highest ranking - #1 TripeHoundRedux)

http://mediumlarge.wordpress.com/

Francesco Marciuliano is the current writer of Sally Forth, a widely syndicated comic strip (the current illustrator is Craig MacIntosh). Marciuliano writes and draws the satiric web comic Medium Large. The strip originally ran from April 2004 to January 2007. After a long hiatus, the site was revamped and new strips began appearing each weekday on May 27, 2008. He also writes the blog/performance series Conversations with Dad and the blog Francesco Explains It All. He writes for the PBS television series Seemore's Playhouse, which won two 2007 Regional Daytime Emmy Awards for an episode scripted by Marciuliano.

Marciuliano was hired to work on Sally Forth after strip creator Greg Howard retired from his writing duties. His work on the syndicated strip is in keeping with the strip's family-friendly and relatively traditional history. His other work is much more irreverent, edgy, and occasionally foul-mouthed, something that often comes as a surprise to those familiar with Sally Forth. He is also an enthusiastic and well-received participant in online community discussions on Sally Forth in particular and comics in general, including Gene Weingarten's online chats at the Washington Post Web site, and in the comments section of the Comics Curmudgeon blog.

He was a featured panelist at Comicon New York 2007 at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. In 2007, he co-produced a monthly comedy variety show, the PIT Presents the Pendulum, at the People's Improv Theater (PIT) in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. He occasionally freelances as a script supervisor on independent and mainstream feature films. He is a contributing writer to The Onion News Network.

70. David Spade - 25 points
(1 of 22 lists. Highest ranking - #1 TBlue Raja)

http://www.davidspade.com/

David Wayne Spade is an Emmy nominated American actor, comedian, television personality who gained fame in the 1990s as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and from 1997 until 2003 as Dennis Finch on Just Shoot Me!. He also replaced John Ritter along with James Garner on 8 Simple Rules. He currently stars as Russell Dunbar on the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement.

With the help of friend and fellow comedian Dennis Miller, he joined Saturday Night Live in 1990 as a regular cast member and writer. Here he made popular his well-known sarcastic, smart aleck character in a number of sketches, some of which include: a flight attendant who bids an unpleasant "Buh-Bye" to each passenger as they disembark; a receptionist for Dick Clark who, as a matter of policy, asks even the most recognizable face "And you are?"; and, most famously, the bitingly sarcastic Hollywood Minute reporter who assaults celebrities with a series of one-liners. Other characters include Christy Henderson from the Gap Girls, and Karl from the Karl's Video sketches. He has also done impressions of famous celebrities, such as Brad Pitt and Michael J. Fox. According to interviews with Spade, most of the material that he wrote early on was given to Dana Carvey to perform on the show. Due to his relatively low work rate, he was in danger of being fired as a performer, until the Hollywood Minute segment secured his position.

Spade is very sensitive to light. The combination of bright lights on-set and working under sunlight while filming Black Sheep caused permanent damage to his eyes. On his condition: "I have to wear a hat even indoors and flashes in particular freak me out. I even have to make them turn down the lights in the make-up trailers. I've become such a pain in the butt with this light-sensitive thing, it's a wonder they don't just shoot me."

69. Kevin Pollak - 25 points
(1 of 22 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Plastic Self-Cleaning Duck)

http://www.kevinpollak.net/Willow, directed by Ron Howard, and began an acting career.

As an actor, Pollak's trademark is usually playing the best friend or confidant characters to the leading men, as he did in Ricochet, End of Days, A Few Good Men (1992) and The Wedding Planner. However, Pollak has played a wide variety of parts; he played a gangster in The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and a criminal in The Usual Suspects (1995). He also briefly hosted Celebrity Poker Showdown in its first season. His most substantial role to date was in Deterrence (1999), in which he played the main character: a Vice President who must take over for a deceased President and deal with a nuclear crisis.

As a comedian, Pollak's most popular work was his 1992 HBO special Stop With the Kicking: Kevin Pollak in Concert, directed by comedian David Steinberg and produced by Boston comedy writer Martin Olson. Pollak is also known for having one of the best Christopher Walken impersonations in show business. One specific Walken impression routine, "Frankenstein never scared me", has become one of the most requested sound bites on the Bob and Tom Show, and the routine is a code word to see if another person is a Bob and Tom fan. In an appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Pollak recounted that he was invited to introduce Walken at the unveiling of his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, despite the fact that the two had never met.

Pollak is also notorious for his impression of William Shatner; specifically, imitations of Shatner's role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek. In a 1994 special edition of Canadian TV Guide, published to commemorate the final episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Pollak writes a guide of how to do an impersonation of Kirk. Shatner himself has said that Pollak does the best impersonation of him that he had ever seen

I'm beginning to see why it's a Top 72 list. I'm guessing that everyone's #1 will end up on this list. I'm a little surprised at the low number of lists submitted.
