Remember Freddie Prinze Jr.? Yeah, I know; most of us have tried to forget. For a time there he coasting by on his teen idol looks despite displaying the most vacant of personalities. After gracing us with such masterworks of cinema as WING COMMANDER, HEAD OVER HEELS, the I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and SCOOBY DOO films, and a short-lived ABC sitcom, Mr. Sarah Michelle Gellar has been pretty much out of the spotlight and mostly off the Hollywood radar. What's a struggling young actor already past his prime to do?
Answer: Join the writing staff of World Wrestling Entertainment. No joke.
Hey, if David Arquette could briefly win the WCW World Title - that wrestling company went out of business shortly thereafter - then why can't the star of SHE'S ALL THAT help write the dialogue and cultivate the storylines of America's favorite roided up pretend fighters as a member of Vince McMahon's notoriously overworked creative writing staff?
It seems Freddie Prinze Jr. is such a fan of WWE that he's been blogging on their website for quite awhile; he does have plenty of free time of late. But now the McMahon's have gone and made him a full-fledged member of their creative team that writes the storylines and dialogue for WWE's various televised "action-adventure series". See; that one episode of "Mutant X" he wrote finally paid off.
So the next time you're watching WWE and see a 250+ pound man getting pinned by a midget pretending to be a leprechaun or an 80-year old woman giving birth to a rubber hand or Vince McMahon faking his death... again, just remember - Freddie Prinze Jr. may have helped write it.
No word yet if he’ll be bringing in Matthew Lillard to reform their cinematic tag team inside the squared the circle. Their finishing move: The Box Office Bomb.
