Reel Comedy | Craig Robinson

6 08 2008

With such a large ensemble, its hard for actors to shine in the multitude of producer Judd Apatow’s films. Currently co-starring in “Pineapple Express,” actor Craig Robinson officially becomes “one to watch.”

In one of last year’s funniest scenes, Robinson first appeared on our radar playing the honest, but brutal nightclub doorman in “Knocked Up.” When Debbie Mann goes ballistic after Robinson turns her away, his response was priceless.

“I know… you’re right. I’m so sorry, I f—in’ hate this job. I don’t want to be the one to pass judgment, decide who gets in. S— makes me sick to my stomach, I get the runs from the stress. It’s not cause you’re not hot, I would love to tap that a–. I would tear that a– up. I can’t let you in cause you’re old as f—. For this club, you know, not for the earth.

In “Pineappple Express,” the talented actor returns playing one of two henchmen trying to track down a potential witness to murder in the funny stoner crime comedy.

While most fans are familiar with him because of his funny role as Darry Philbin on “The Office,” Robinson has also appeared on several other shows in films. You may have seen him on “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” as well as roles in “Daddy’s Little Girls” or “Walk Hard: The Dew Cox Story.” Later this year, Robinson will co-star in “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”
