Posts Tagged ‘Griffin Newman’

(NOTE: In my dreams, celebrities usually appear as conflations of themselves and the characters they play.  So if a dream takes place in a movie or TV show, then its characters are usually also the actors that play them.  There a few exceptions: animated characters generally are not counted this way, as they don’t tend to have this same conflated quality.  So, an appearance by Stan Marsh would not also count as an appearance by Trey Parker.  Also, for fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by James Bond doesn’t count as an appearance by Daniel Craig unless it is the version of Bond as played by Craig.)

I’m at a point in my life where I personally know some people who work in the film and TV biz, thus explaining Tick star Griffin Newman’s placement atop this list, which mostly has to do with Blank Check with Griffin and David always going to the top of my must-listen podcast to-do list.
A little further down the charts we have a battle of political administrations, as well as Alison Brie taking her normal spot near the top. American Housewife‘s cast/characters make a strong showing among new shows, while Mr. Robot and New Girl continue to affect my psyche.

(NOTE: In my dreams, celebrities usually appear as conflations of themselves and the characters they play.  So if a dream takes place in a movie or TV show, then its characters are usually also the actors that play them.  There a few exceptions: animated characters generally are not counted this way, as they don’t tend to have this same conflated quality.  So, an appearance by Bob Belcher would not also count as an appearance by H. Jon Benjmain.  Also, for fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by Batman doesn’t count as an appearance by Ben Affleck unless it is the version of Batman as played by Affleck.)

Community is my favorite show of all time, and even though it did not air any new episodes in 2016, I still dreamed about it often enough for Alison Brie to take number one on this tally (though her total wasn’t as high as in previous years). Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs were not too far behind.
As for current shows occupying my subconscious? It looks like New Girl reigns supreme, with strong showings from Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, and Hannah Simone.
Griffin Newman had a good year, thanks to The Tick, Search Party, and me knowing him personally.
I have encountered Billy Eichner on the street, though not as often as I’ve encountered him in my dreams.
