Why I love Paul Rudd as Mike Hannigan.
Paul Rudd as Mike Hannigan is my favorite late season cast addition to any show…
Usually when a show is late in it’s life, a few seasons away from ending or being canceled, it’ll add actors to it’s cast list to try to boost ratings and add interest to the story line.
Like when the Brady’s little cousin Oliver came into the show.
Or when Eric Foreman left and they added Josh Meyers’ character Randy.
In my opinion, they usually strike out, and the show just isn’t as good.
But Mike Hannigan as Phoebe’s boyfriend and later husband was a perfect fit in the cast. He was like the friend we never knew we always wanted. The show was perfect without him, but with him, it was still perfect. Not better… it wasn’t some celebrity stunt to gain raitings…it was just a perfect addition to the family.
And that is why I love Paul Rudd as Mike Hannigan.
kinda just wanted to say…
that I fucking love my friends. I may not talk to each of them every day…
…or even every week….
and sometimes we go months without hanging out.
sometimes I see you every day.
and sometimes…. we might just need a break from each other.
but each and every one of you, and you know who you are, I love you. And I will always cherish you. I will always be there to build you up and tell you how awesome you are, to be that shoulder you need to cry on, to give advice when and where I can give it, and to listen when you just need to talk.
I hope our lives never get too busy to occasionally text or call to catch up, or to grab a drink and karaoke together.
I hope we will always be friends, because I have come to love the person you are, and I never want you out of my life.
