Beth (Garofalo) ponders the vast potential of her burgeoning career.

THEN: I hate to say it, but “WHAS” has been what seems to be the peak of Garofalo’s career. Prior to 2001, she collected an impressive slew of credits starting with “The Ben Stiller Show,” to “Reality Bites,” then to “SNL,” only to go on to star in “The Cable Guy,” “Cop Land,” “Dogma,” and the list goes on.

NOW: With the exception of a long stint on “24,” Garofalo has pretty much done a few random guest appearances and short lived tv shows. Hopefully the new “WHAS” series will rekindle her once blazing career.



Well, that wraps it up for FilmFad’s Wet Hot American Summer: Then and Now. Make sure to check out the upcoming “Wet Hot American Summer” Netflix series. Not only will the entire original cast be in tow, but rumor has is that many new A-Listers have jumped aboard including Kristen Wiig and Chris Pine. I am excited for the first day of the last day of summer camp, how about you?

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
