Please forgive me for not coming up with a witty introduction this week. I’m going to be totally honest – I’m looking ahead to a three day weekend, so I’m totally phoning it in.

Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
One on One with John Michael Higgins
You may know John Michael Higgins from his comedic roles, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t serious about acting. From his first love, the theatre, to his breakout role as David Letterman in The Late Shift and his memorable roles in Christopher Guest’s films, Higgins is a hard working actor who has honed his craft since he was a child.

Ned Bitters disagrees.
