“Don't worry if you can't rock the black-tie look: Just catch Marty before he blows up again in the soon-to-be starring opposite hot comic John Mulaney in a just-green-lighted new FOX sitcom, "Mulaney," added SI Live today.
“This enduring, often underrated, talent has truly done it all: From the apocalyptically awkward Ed Grimley on SCTV and "SNL" to his poignant, Tony-nominated leading man turn opposite Bernadette Peters. "The Goodbye Girl," adds the report today.
