Simon Rex Hits Lance Bass Up for a Date, Showers Him in Cocaine


In a bid to get his career on track, Simon Rex is getting desperate — in a new comedy pilot called Rex about...reviving his career. In this scene with Lance Bass, Rex schedules a dinner date in hopes of being caught by the paparazzi. In addition to Bass, it also features Victor Garber, Paris Hilton, Geoffrey Arend, Jill Talley, Jill Bartlet, and Jaime Presley.

  1. The trailer looks like the show could be funny (no time to watch the entire thing now)...but the thought of reviving Simon Rex's "career" doesn't entirely sound like the stuff of fiction. Did he ever really have a huge career aside from his "solo" work?

    His looks also seem to run all over the map! The costars come off better, if only because they have less need for desperation.

  2. So going on a date with someone whose career is dead is how to revive your own career?

    Makes perfect sense.

  4. Just watched the full episode. That shit was funny.

    The Lance Bass revelation about HIS publicity stunt was very funny. The cast is great. God, I hope this goes somewhere for at least one season.

    Funny Shit!

  9. personally, I foundthe blooper with Lance after the credits of the episode the best - way to way to go on autopilot and embarass everyone Simon.

  10. It looks ok. Makes me miss The Comeback with Lisa Kudrow.

  12. Aren't Danny Faustino and Corin Nemic doing this kinda thing right now as well? It's the new thing for washed up has been actors to do these days,

  13. Loved the on location sets, the brutal humor and the inspired performances. Very Arrested Development, but without the family values.

  14. Paul C, I"m very glad to hear that someone else else enjoyed The Comeback. Even some really bright people I know were utterly confounded by that brilliant, short-lived show.

  15. If it's half a good as Fat Actress, I'm in. This looks funny.

  16. @Paul R - I think it was too painful for some people to watch "Aunt Sassy's" constant humiliation., but most people just didn't get it. It was up there with Strangers With Candy.

  17. I watched the pilot. It was fun.

    I HATED what I had to go through to see it. I will NEVER bother with that site again.

  18. Saw the film and I was expecting the worst, but it was actually very funny. Simon Rex needs a break, I don't know why some gays are just downright nasty to him.
