Ally Jerk's Big Stretch
Don't tell Greg Germann that the corporate weasel he portrays in the current Tim Allen comedy Joe Somebody is basically a clone of Richard Fish, the, um, corporate weasel he portrays every week on Fox's Ally McBeal. "Oh no he's not," the actor mock-protests to TV Guide Online. "That's not true!"
Alright, we'll bite: How are the two characters different? "Jeremy in [Joe Somebody] is a slimeball with no ethics at all. Richard Fish — for all of his opportunism — is a pretty straight-up guy," Germann argues. "He's not going to screw you over for the sake of screwing you over. Jeremy is a little bit more pathetic. He's much more of a loser than Richard Fish." Pausing, he adds with a wink: "And they walk differently."
