    Did anyone ever think it was going to be successful? It wreaked of failure from the moment it was being talked about.

    Ridiculous. Why should THAT be the reason to stop the 'production'? Everyone knew or suspected his "orientations", which have nothing to do with him as an actor, and supposedly they've swatted down the specific accusers anyway... What a silly way to close down a deal.

    Still getting a tiny laugh out of it.

    Considering John was attached, you had to expect it to fail. The guy hasn't succeeded at anything off the Stern Show. Failed as a rock star. Failed as a reality star. Failed as an MTV VJ. Failed as a late night talk show announcer. Failed as an actor. Now failed as a producer.

    Granted guys like Gorillo is enviousness that he couldn't fail at all those things like John. At least John is holding on as a staff writer on Leno (probably because Leno doesn't want to fully admit he was wrong to hire John in the first place).

    Asshole is the perfect word to describe Stuttering John.

    I always liked Stuttering John. I was hoping that this would work out for him.

    Stuttering John is a complete asshole, but I wanted this to succeed.

    Because it would have KILLED an even bigger asshole to know Stuttering John was doing well.

    The funny thing is what made John a good member of the Stern staff (at least at times) are completely unmarketable skills. He is/was an asshole which would stir up shit on the show (Jason tries to imitate John that way as a far more annoying result) and having balls of steel and complete stupidity to ask celebrities the most offensive questions Jackie, Fred, and Howard could dream up without fully understanding what he is asking. Made him great for the show, but useless everywhere else.

    An R-rated movie in 2012, especially after it's been a while for gangster stuff. He'd have to get fangs or have super powers. :eek:

    Wonder if AGT has a morals termination clause in Howard's contract if caught in his dressing room (which he lets no one near) sucking off one of the shirtless talented breakdancers.

    Did anyone ever think Stuttering John would get a half-million-dollar-a-year job? I hate his guts and wish him the worst, but he seems to be really good at attaching himself, tick-like, to successful people.
