Curtis Armstrong.

A legendary comedic second banana to a litany of major stars, Curtis is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. A classically trained actor, Curtis began his incredible 40-year career on stage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened.

But there’s more to Curtis’ story than that.

Born and bred a nerd, he spent his early years between Detroit, a city so nerdy that the word was coined there in 1951, and, improbably, Geneva, Switzerland. His adolescence and early adulthood was spent primarily between the covers of a book and indulging his nerdy obsessions. It was only when he found his true calling, as an actor and unintentional nerd icon, that he found true happiness. With whip-smart, self-effacing humor, Armstrong takes us on a most unlikely journey―one nerd’s hilarious, often touching rise to the middle. He started his life as an outcast and matured into…well, an older, slightly paunchier, hopefully wiser outcast.

In Hollywood, as in life, that counts as winning the game.

Praise to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor by Campbell Bruce
Product Description

New York Times bestseller

Introduction by New York Times bestselling author and famous minor television personality John Hodgman

One of my dad’s favorite jokes about getting older was: “I went out for coffee when I was twenty-one and when I got back I was fifty-eight!”

I get what he meant now. Time flies. My first book, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a "B" Movie Actor, was published back in 2001 and it chronicles the adventures of a “mid-grade, kind of hammy actor" (my words), cutting his teeth on exploitation movies far removed from mainstream Hollywood.

This next book, an “Act II” if you will, could be considered my “maturing years” in show business, when I began to say “no” more often and gravitated toward self-generated material. Taking stock in the overall quality of my life, I fled Los Angeles and moved to a remote part of Oregon to renew, regroup and reload.

If that sounds tame, the journey from Evil Dead to Spider-Man to Burn Notice was long, with plenty of adventures/mishaps along the way. I never pictured myself hovering above Baghdad in a Blackhawk helicopter, facing a pack of wild dogs in Bulgaria, or playing an aging Elvis Presley with cancer on his penis - how can you predict this stuff? The sheer lunacy of show business is part of the fun for me and I hope you'll come along for the ride.

'Supernatural': Liberating Lucifer? Metatron takes one for the team - Zap2It

After revealing that Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict) is indeed God, “Supernatural” put some biblical family drama into motion on Wednesday (May 11). In the episode, appropriately titled, “All In The Family,” God presented himself to Sam (Jared... But while it seems that Chuck has a plan to confront Amara (Emily Swallows) and end her plan to bring on the apocalypse, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) contacts the brothers to advise them of his real agenda. God doesn’t want to stop Amara, he wants to sacrifice himself. Of course, the way he puts it, this scenario would play out with him being caged … but Dean knows better. RELATED: ‘Supernatural’s’ Rob Benedict: ‘It’s been a blessing’ playing God. With God called out by Dean and Dean meeting Amara out in the forest, Sam, God’s new prophet Donatello (Keith Szarabajka) and Metatron all head to the hideout where Castiel/Lucifer (Misha Collins) is being held captive. Probably not the best decision, but when dealing with the world’s looming end — desperate times call for desperate measures. Unfortunately for everyone — especially Metatron — Amara figures out what’s really going on. But not before Sam, Donatello and Lucifer escape. Standing up to his hero’s sister is the most heroic move he may have ever made on “Supernatural” but it’s one that doesn’t go well as, with just a flick of her wrist, Amara wisps him into oblivion in a swirl of smoke. Is Metatron really dead. In the world of “Supernatural” it’s always hard to tell as characters die all the time, but the really important ones — those fan favorites, if you will — always have a tendency of coming back. Regardless of whether we’ll ever see the scribe again, the events in the episode reunite God and Lucifer, paving the way for quite an epic showdown. Source: zap2it.com
