    Howard for years is always claiming he turned down this role or this movie because it wasn't right, etc etc

    But if this AGT gig which really is one step away from a reality carnie show act, was I am embarrassed at what he must of been offered. I mean if after years of turning things down Howard has decided this was a quality project worth his time, WTF did he turn down? It must of been God awful relative to this AGT stuff

    If I was Howard I would lay off the "they offered me this project" rhetoric

    What got me was when he was on Seinfeld comedians and coffee show saying he had like 20 film and tv show products in the works. He abandoned them because it's just too much work. B.S.

    Stern did not turn down anything. He lies about everything.

    It was hilarious listening to the Shuffle. Wiggy was always blabbering about some new big project he'd be announcing soon but none of them ever happened. There were clips of him claiming he was trying to decide among movie offers from 3 major studios, had an open invitation to do an interview show on ABC anytime he wanted, had finished the scripts for Howard Stern the High School Years and was expecting the network to start production soon, and various other done deals that couldn't be discussed yet. It's clear now that those supposed offers were complete bullshit and the only thing he could get was AGT - a cheesy summer replacement Gong Show rip-off that tanked in the ratings as soon as he signed on.

    The sad truth is that Howard actually believes his lies. He's insane.

    This exactly, I mean if AGT is deemed worthy of his time, WTF right?
    It is so embarrassing it's like your balding / fat friend bragging about banging 9-10's in high school. You know it's bullshit but you'll never meet his friends or go to his hometown to call him on it. Same here

    Private Parts made $42 million at the box office. Hollywood didn't give a fuck about him. He was/is box office poison.

    He had Buchwald float a rumor that he was in consideration to become an American Idol judge hoping it would build some media momentum - but to no avail. He would have sacrificed a daughter if that's what it took to make it to the big time. AGT was the sloppy 2nds he had to settle for. As awful as he is judging yodeling chipmunks - imagine how miscast he'd have been once the shtick part of the auditions were over and he'd be evaluating contestants with genuine musical talent.. although it would have been embarassingly funny as hell.

    Wiggy is the king of hyperbole... this is a long and detailed, but entertaining read of all of his "projects" done by Stethacantus at SFN through the end of 2006, (@ElRexican found the source blog pages).

    He made private parts eighteen years ago. he wasn't done one thing since. That says it all. No one is looking for him to be in movies.
