Ronda Roberts Clark and Michael Episode 1
August 1, 2008
Clark Duke and Michael Cera are screenwriters hanging out on their couch in this first episode of Clark and Michael. The intro to the show is a take on 80’s television show Perfect Strangers staring Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot. The episode opens with the two rubbing themselves with rubbing alcohol in the kitchen while trying to come up with the type of screenplay they will write. The next scene has the boys in their car to head to a meeting with Ted Turner. The personal assistant informs them that they are not expected. Then, they meet with Tony Mesner of ATC Family in order to attempt to sell their script. After the meeting, they haven’t heard from him. Randy, their neighbor knocks on the door, they were disappointed when they find him at the other end of the knock. Randy is quite the nosey neighbor. The two couch and ponder why Mesner has not contacted them after more than a week. They go to Mesner’s place and are told by him that they are not going to use the script.

As I was watching the show, I realized I recognized Michael Cera from the movie Juno. It turns out my eyes were not fooling me. Both of these actors are quite talented and have appeared in various mainstream projects. In addition to playing the illustrious “Bleeker” in Juno, Cera has appeared as Even in Superbad, and was on the primetime network television show Arrested Development as George-Michael Bluth. Duke also appeared in Superbad as “Party Teenager” and he plays Dale in the television show Greek. Clark and Michael plays like a reality TV show, following the young men as they write their screenplay and attempt to sell it. I look forward to seeing what they come up with throughout the season.
