Colbert Trivia Challenge: Week Four Announcing Three New Comedy Central Series
by | comments:

Phil Lamarr talked to the The AV Club about Futurama, getting shot in the head in Pulp Fiction and the late, great George Carlin. Here's a great quote where he explains the origin of Hermes…

“When I first… started doing the character, he was not called Hermes. He was called Dexter. He was not Jamaican, he was just an overweight accountant. And the character didn’t work… But I had the good fortune of having Matt Groening walk up to me in the hallway after one of the table reads and say, ‘Hey Phil, can you do a Jamaican accent?’ Now, given the fact that the character wasn’t really working, had I said ‘no,’ we probably wouldn’t be talking right now… we changed the character, and then it sort of clicked. The writers found an angle for him. And here we are, 13 years later, and I’m still doing it.”

A new Futurama episode premieres Wednesdays at 10/9c.
