Okay you guys, so I'm watching the next-to-last episode of season three of Gilmore Girls (I only started watching it regularly halfway through season five, so I've been catching up from the beginning via Netflix) and during the opening credits I see MICHAEL MARONNA! Freaking Michael Maronna! Actually, he was listed as Michael C. Maronna, which is charming -- Michael Maronna! If you don't know who Michael Maronna is (and I don't see how that's even possible), he is Pete! Hel-LO! (P.S. Wow is he young in that picture! I forgot how young Pete and Pete were at the beginning of that show. Also here is Michael Stipe selling him a fudgesicle.) Oh man I was so in love with Michael Maronna in high school. I found out that he lived in Queens, and everytime we went to visit my grandparents I would keep my eyes peeled. Just in case.

Anyway, he only ended up with a few lines in the episode, BUT he was an employee of Jess's dad in California, and I know that the original plan was to have Jess living with his dad in California be a spinoff series, with whatsherface as his dad's girlfriend. Sherilynn Finn, a la Twin Peaks (I've never seen it, no spoilers!) who currently plays Luke's baby momma on Gilmore Girls, wait where was I, oh yeah! So maybe Michael Maronna almost had a steady gig! As the quirky hot dog stand employee! But the series never got picked up, sorry Michael Maronna.

Also, in looking for a picture of Pete, I was reminded that Michael Maronna was in Slackers. I am quasi-interested in renting that just to see him. Did anyone see that movie? Was it terrible?
