As I was about to go to sleep last night I decided to watch the first 15 minutes of Teen Wolf. And it dawned on me that Scott’s (Michael J. Fox) basketball coach was one of the classic characters in movie history: Coach Finstock, played by Jay Tarses.
The guy actually tried to forfeit in the middle of the game to let the other coach beat the 5 o’clock traffic (by the way the coach for the other team played Roger Podactor in the movie Ace Ventura).
Classic line from Finstock: “everything else is cream cheese.” So what’s Jay Tarses up to these days? Mostly producing and writing. Notably he wrote The Muppets Take Manhatten and one episode of “The Comedy Factory.” It’s hard to think this guy is almost 70 now.
Here’s to cream cheese.
