Big announcement, Freddie Prinze, Jr. takes a day job

The Futon Critic gushes:


STAMFORD, Conn. -- Freddie Prinze, Jr., a long-time fan of World Wrestling Entertainment, joins WWE's creative team. Prinze, Jr. will now have a behind the scenes role contributing to WWE's weekly television and pay-per-view programs.

"Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s passion, energy and creativity make him an excellent fit for WWE," said Chairman Vince McMahon.

"Bringing on board an experienced Hollywood writer, actor and producer like Freddie Prinze, Jr. will only increase the level of entertainment to millions of viewers and passionate WWE fans every Monday on USA," said Chris McCumber, Executive Vice President Marketing Digital & Brand Strategy, USA Network.

I like Freddy Prinze, Jr. He seems like a good kid and a good actor. He made that movie about the thing with the guy. His sitcom did well and then it was gone. It deserved a second season.

The press release basically says he'll be working there. Apparently the lead from Egon is now a waiter again. That restaurant didn't send out a press release.

He's an actor, what does that have to do with wrestling? Oh. Never mind.
