This past weekend, thanks to the wonderful people at SF Sketchfest, the cast of Party Down reunited for a panel and, when they walked out in their pink bowtied catering uniforms from the show, it was like nothing bad ever happened in the entire world. Here are the ten things I learned at the Party Down reunion:
The saying goes: You don't know what you got 'til it's gone. And, damn, is that ever true about cult classic Party Down, which aired on the Starz network (huh?) for a meager two seasons until it was unceremoniously cancelled. But let's focus on the positive. This past weekend, thanks to the wonderful people at SF Sketchfest, the cast of Party Down (Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, and Martin Starr) reunited for a panel and, when they walked out in their pink bowtied catering uniforms from the show, it was like nothing bad ever happened in the entire world. Here are 10 things I learned at the Party Dow reunion:
1. No movies plans just yet.
Let's just get straight to what die hard fans have been wondering for years. There are no plans for a feature length movie yet because there is no god. But before you resort to self harm, there is a glimmer of hope! Adam Scott thinks it would be great to release more episodes via Netflix à l Arrested Development. Time to start that letter writing campaign! Contact your congresswoman!
2. Only 16,000 people watched the series finale.
What is wrong with you people??? Adam Scott is grateful anyway: "Thanks for watching three years too late."
3. Paul Rudd and Steve Carell almost wore pink bowties.
When HBO was initially considering the show, Party Down was going to star Paul Rudd and possibly Steve Carell. The network eventually passed because they have terrible taste. Years later, the roles went to Adam Scott and Ken Marino. After that particular fun fact was revealed, Lizzy Caplan sighed: "Imagine how much doper this panel could've been!"
4. I have a huge crush on Lizzy Caplan and so should you.
Some of the funniest moments of the panel were when Lizzy Caplan would say something under her breath or when she would drink lots of beer or engage in super cute camaraderie with Martin Starr or make music by blowing into her beer bottle. She once wa Lindsay Lohan's goth bestie i Mean Girls nd now I'm wondering why she isn't mine. Stock up on Lizzy Caplan hilarity in the "fashion film" below.
