Subject: Bobby on Arsenio

Last weekend Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) was on Arsenio.  I gotta say I
was not impressed.  He seemed rather giggly and unfocused.  He also
wasted his time by attempting to speak about Arsenio and what Arsenio
does in his spare time, then speaking about himself and what HE does in
his spare time.

He spoke very little about the show itself.  He did mention that the
interview with Lynch (when he was applying for the role) was atypical in
that Lynch just wanted to talk about Dana's views and likes/dislikes
rather than his acting experience pe se.  In an interview with Kimmy
Robertson (Lucy) which I read recently, Kimmy said the same thing about
her interview with Lynch.  Kimmy seemed much more enthusiastic about the
show however, saying that she was thrilled to be part of such a
phenomenon which had really caught fire.  She said in real life her
voice is not that high-pitched and squeaky.  She also thinks that her
role will evolve into something much larger.
