David Mamet makes Funny Or Die debut

by Jesse North

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet (whose latest play, Race, is currently on Broadway) has made his foray into the world of viral online videos. Mamet made his debut Thursday on the comedy video website Funny Or Die, writing and directing “Lost Masterpieces of Pornography.” The video stars Kristen Bell and Ed O’Neill as, what else, a slinky office assistant to a Supreme Court judge (respectively, of course).

What do you think, Rushers? Does this move help make Mamet more relevant to a new generation? What was your favorite line? Mine was, “It is the Dred Scott Decision!” Did you chuckle or did the video fall flat?
