Why Would You Use Any Lawyer But Jamie Casino, Super Bowl King?

A lot of ads were flying around last night; it was the Super Bowl, probably. But a brassy, potentially magical lawyer upended the entire thing by airing a two-minute spot in his local market.

I printed it out. I give myself things to look at like that.”

And it’s David Schwimmer’s turn to do a comedy pilot, over at ABC. It’s called Irreversible and follows an “eccentric, self-absorbed couple and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves.” I, too, have already forgotten what it’s about. But hey, Ross! We were on a break! Etcetera!
