Yo quiero Reno 911!

I love Reno 911!. I love it much more than I should. In fact, the last couple weeks of my summer has consisted of little else other than watching the second and third season dvds over and over and over again. It doesn't get old.

So being that I'm becoming a little Reno obsessed, I was amazed I didn't know that Carlos Alazraqui, who plays Deputy James Garcia, was the voice of the Taco Bell dog. He was also the voice of Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life, and Mr. Weed from Family Guy. All of this blew my mind.

It also amazed me that Thomas Lennon, who plays Lt. Dangle, and Kerri Kenney-Silver, who plays Weigel, starred in the short-lived but great Comedy Central series Viva Variety. Damn I loved that show when I was a kid. Random, obscure Eastern European talent acts? Oh hell yes.

I just though you guys should know.

Patrick Baker, a friend of my girlfriend's from high school, worked as an AD on Reno last year. He would call her with strange stories about what was going on at the day's shoot.

When he found out that Garcia had been the voice of Rocco he walked up and asked him: "Is it true you were Rocco?"

To which he replied, in the Rocco voice: "Why, yes I was, Patrick."

Which nearly made his head explode.

He's also a good stand up comic.
