Video Friday: Seth Green Edition

As you have probably heard by now, Seth Green was recently asked about hosting Saturday Night Live and it was revealed that he had always dreamed of it. Well, the IGH team got together and asked, "Why hasn't he hosted already?" Wilderowens immediately rattled off five reasons why he should and given more time, would have rattled off a million more. But here is a man who has been in the industry since he was child, he's proven time and time again to be brilliantly comedic, and he's an extremely successful writer, director, and producer to boot. It seems like there's nothing he can't do. So why hasn't SNL contacted him?

Anyway, we have decided this needs to happen. We have started the campaign to get Seth Green on SNL. We set up a Facebook group and a twitter campaign has begun. To keep with the spirit, today's Video Friday is all about Seth!

We're going to kick things off with a classic Seth commerial. The hair! I would never want to revisit the styles of the 80's in real life but I sure do love seeing them onscreen. I think I would buy the product just because of his hair.

Not only is this just a fun movie but it also brought together a young Seth Green and Alyson Hannigan. Even then, you could tell they were great together.

What I really liked about this guest spot was seeing the subtleties that were played out. The character was still funny and interesting, but he was also less over the top. I'll admit it reminded me of Oz if Oz spoke more. It was great because allowed a different fan base to see how diverse Seth could be. And yes, after I screamed, I then wept like a baby at the end. I swear sometimes having emotions sucks.

Seth wrestles! This made my day! It highlights just how diverse he is. Most people wouldn't think of Seth as a "wrestler" but all you have to do is look in his eyes or watch a movie or two, and you'll know, he's scrappy. Granted, he didn't get a lot of ring time but come on, you know you loved seeing him in the ring.

Robot Chicken is one of my favorite shows and I'm not just saying that because of Seth. The second I saw all my beloved 80's characters being brought back to life in hilarious and slightly disturbing way, I was sold. This is one of my favorite Robot Chicken promotions. It's funny, spot-on, and the man can rock the eyeliner.

I know we've featured this video before, but we love it and it just so happens that Seth plays an important role in it and his awesome wife, Clare Grant, is one of women who make up Team Unicorn. Getsuyobi even suggested that when Seth hosts SNL, Team Unicorn should be the musical guest. It has my vote!

There you have it. A brief and all too short highlight of Seth Green's career. I know I left out a lot of stuff but the man's been in practically everything. I'd be here for days or weeks or maybe longer. Besides, this isn't the last time we'll be talking about the awesomeness that is Seth.


What's this? One last clip?

We all know no Seth Green tribute would be complete without a shout out to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The character of Oz has wildly dedicated and loyal fans. There are still debates over who Willow should have been with - Oz or Tara. But I didn't want to give you just any random Oz clip. Instead, here's a fun, behind the scene clip with Nick Brendon and Charisma Carpenter.

So, tell your friends, spread and tweet the word (hashtag #sethgreenhostsSNL) and join the group! Let get Seth Green on SNL!

  1. That NERF commercial is so surreal. It's like a little demon with Oz's face on it hawking weapons and terrorizing little girls with projectile launchers. So one of those girls was Alyssan Hannigan? I'm assuming the dark haired one on the left. I didn't recognize her, but you only get a fractional second reaction shot. I love your mission. This man should get more exposure, as famous as he is, many more people know his work on Robot Chicken and Family Guy and more but don't know his face. I've always seen him as a succesful champion of "art for geeks, by geeks" as a critically and financially viable formula. He brings his own nerdy inclinations into whatever project he works on. Epic Level Luck to your endeavor, my friends!

  2. Hol. Lee. Crap. So I just reread more carefully and realized that it's Seth and Alison in the next clip after the nerd one and... wow.... that is freaky seeing the two of them together like that. What are the odds? Think they had a crush on each other when they first met as young adolescent actors, only to meet up again as a pretend couple just a few short years later? I always like to imagine that the cast of my favorite shows had all sorts of sweet romances and torried love affairs after and between takes.

  3. I do the same thing. It makes everything seem more interesting if they're all involved with each other. I hear it's like that with the Glee cast. I don't know if they had crushes on each other but I know they remained really good friends. It would be cool if they had.
