Here’s something to feed the Friday night Rumor Mill.
We’ve heard reports from a few sources that this upcoming Monday’s (1/27) edition of Chris Hardwick’s @Midnight will be a reunion of sorts of the 90’s sketch comedy troupe, The State. While not 100% confirmed, it’s not that far a stretch of an idea as Thomas Lennon serves as the show’s executive producer and even played a few rounds of the game on episodes past (unable to win still).
It seems totally possible. Ben Garant is still running with Lennon as they’re writing partners. Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter always seems down for a hang. David Wain and Ken Marino work together a decent amount, so they’re a possibility. Kerri Kenny-Silver seems to always show up on something Lennon/Garant are doing. Joe Lo Truglio, well he’s probably the hottest commodity after Brooklyn Nine-Nine winning a Golden Globe.
Kevin Allison/Todd Holoubek/Michael Patrick Jann – no idea. They’d be the biggest surprise if it happened.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
UPDATE: According to the @Midnight schedule, Michael Ian Black, Kerri Kenney-Silver, and Michael Showalter are set to appear on the show.
