Fred Stoller Interview- The nicest guy you sorta know (Update with his Court Case with the REAL Kramer from Seinfeld)

Written by: Ryan Fu @fu_beatz

You know when you’re at a Starbucks and you see someone familiar but he’s not an acquaintance but he could be a friend. You know you’ve seen him on something like a tv show, a film, or even on those annoying car insurance commercials. You can’t remember his name but you know that you’ve seen in movies and you like him. As you rack your brain for his name, he grabs his coffee and leaves, leaving you wondering what was his name? His name was probably Fred Stoller.

Frederick Stoller aka Fred is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and an all-around “good guy.” You’ve seen him on  bunch things like tv shows and movies. I first remembered Fred from a scene stealing character from Dumb and Dumber. He played the “Get off the Phone” dude.

Genius right.

This is the magic of Fred Stoller. A career that spans over twenty years in which he takes ordinary and unremarkable roles and turns them into characters we fight for and love. He’s been on everthing like Everybody love Raymond, Ned’s Declassified School Surivival Guide, Wizards of Waverly Place, Joe Dirt, etc. But you probably best know him on the mega hit show Seinfeld as himself and he kills it. Fred does his job well and people love him for it.

Lately, Mr. Stoller has been know for the guy who was on Seinfeld that is being sued by Kramer.  Wait.  What?

Not Michael Richards who played Kramer but the real Kramer, Kenny Kramer.

According to Mr. Kramer and NY Daily News, (Read the article here)

“Kenny Kramer – the inspiration for Kramer on “Seinfeld” – has filed a $1 million defamation suit against a former writer on the sitcom for defaming him and his tour business in a new book.

The suit says Fred Stoller, 55, smeared Kramer by claiming his tour guides would yell the famous Seinfeld line “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!” at gay people while leading tours through Greenwich Village.”

He then writes a letter to Mr. Stoller calling him a “a treacherous, two-faced, backstabbing pathological liar.”

I can’t speak for Mr. Kramer or his relationship with Fred but I can speak about the man who is Fred Stoller. It is hard to hear someone talking ill about Fred because he is the one of the nicest celebrities (there are only a few) I know. He is always willing to help out other people, he always poses for fans and he will always be entertaining to everyone, even a paparazzi.

Here is a short interview with Fred Stoller @Fred_Stoller

Ryan Fu:  What are you famous for?

Fred:  “It depends. For teens Wizards of Waverly Place, but a combination of appearances on Seinfeld, Raymond, Friends, and Dumb and Dumber and other guest spots.”

Ryan Fu:  How did you get started in the biz?

Fred:  “Stand up in NYC.”

Ryan Fu:  Tell me about your experience on Seinfeld

Fred:   “As a writer it was weird. I was mostly on my own. Everyone was doing their own thing, but it was amazing getting a story on. As an actor so much fun being with those iconic stars.”

Ryan Fu:  Your relationship with the Real Kramer (Kenny Kramer):

Fred:  (Check out this Video Interview Below on his statements)

Ryan Fu:  What’s your book about?

Maybe We’ll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star

Fred:  “The books about all my adventures on all the shows I’ve been on, writing on Seinfeld, what’s it like to pass though some of the biggest shows in the last 20 years, and my one night stand with Kathy Griffin. “

Ryan Fu:  Your thoughts on Kramer and his lawsuit.

Fred:   “I’m glad he thinks I have a million dollars. “

*UPDATE ON STOLLER VS KENNY KRAMER CASE

From the LA Weekly:

In classic Cosmo Kramer fashion, Kenny Kramer took offense, accusing Stoller of accusing him of being homophobic. (Got that?) The plaintiff said that the tour never even went to Greenwich Village.

But after a seven-month court case, a judge in New York dismissed Kramer’s defamation suit.

“All he said was, during the bus tour the tour guide hits on every popular catchphrase that the show is known for,” Stoller’s attorney, David Albert Pierce, tells us.

Judge Barbara Jaffe said there shouldn’t be any anti-LGBT stigma attached to the phrase; even the gay community praised the episode after it aired in 1993. She concluded:

Although Stoller finds the exercise annoying, any reasonable reader would understand it as Seinfeld-related shtick, even if the phrase was repeatedly screamed out as the bus wended its way through “gay-dominated Greenwich Village.” And, although pointing to gay people and taunting them with the phrase from within a large tour bus wending its way down tiny streets in Greenwich Village may reasonably reflect homophobia, nowhere does Stoller depict any pointing and he never uses the term “taunting.”

Stoller tells us that Kramer “just twisted it” when it came to reading his book:

When I found out I was being sued, he sent some rabid Facebook message to me, not getting the humor of my book and misconstruing it.

——————————————————-

It’s good to know that nice guys can finsh first in which throughout the whole case Stoller maintained his sense of humor as he kept rolling with the punches. Please read his books and check out his comedy shows, which you can take a look at his tour dates on his Facebook.

Exclusive Interview with 2014 NBA Draft Hero – Isaiah Austin talking about Life after Basketball

28ec095021c82c14bc92da3864ad601e_crop_north

Isaiah Charles Austin  is an American basketball player who completed his college career for the Baylor Bears in 2014. He had been considered a first-round prospect in the 2014 NBA draft until he was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome.

In his freshman season at Baylor, Austin was named to the 2013 All-Big 12 third team and the Big 12 All-Rookie team. On April 4, 2013, he recorded 15 points, nine rebounds, five blocks, four assists and two steals in the NIT championship game in which Baylor defeated Iowa 74–54. In 35 games (all starts), he averaged 13.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.7 blocks in 29.9 minutes per game.

In April 2013, he declared for the 2013 NBA draft, but later returned to Baylor due to a shoulder injury. In his sophomore season, he was named to the 2014 Big 12 All-Defensive team. In 38 games, he averaged 11.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 3.1 blocks in 28.0 minutes per game. On April 22, 2014, he declared for the 2014 NBA draft, forgoing his final two years of college eligibility.

On June 21, 2014, Austin learned that he had been diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue. In an emotional interview with ESPN‘s Holly Rowe, Austin said that he could no longer play basketball at a competitive level since there was too much risk of his heart rupturing. In response, NBA commissioner Adam Silver invited Austin to attend the draft as his guest. Shortly after Austin’s diagnosis was made public, his agent revealed that Austin had taken out an insurance policy against career-ending disability through a special NCAA program. The amount of the policy was not disclosed, but the agent stated that it was at least $1 million. The policy would not have paid out if his career had ended due to the aforementioned shoulder injury or his eyesight, but is expected to pay out due to his Marfan diagnosis.

Austin is blind in his right eye from an injury he sustained in middle school. He had kept the injury a secret, known only to his teammates and close friends until January 17, 2014.

On June 26, 2014, between the 15th and 16th picks of the 2014 draft, Commissioner Adam Silver made Austin a ceremonial pick, which fulfilled his dream of getting drafted. The crowd gave him a standing ovation as he walked up to the podium.

WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY

ROSE LESLIE (YGRITTE)

GAME OF THRONES

Rose Leslie is a Scottish actress. She is best known for portraying Ygritte in the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. She is the love interest of Jon Snow. If you are not a where of the book or the tv show, Ygritte is a wildling woman. She is fierce and headstrong. In wildling culture she is known as a spearwife, a woman who is also a warrior. Because her hair is red, the wildlings believe her to be “kissed by fire” and consider her lucky.

I just love how she portrays Ygritte on the HBO show Game of Thrones, which is so spirited and fiery as the character. She is so beautiful and her accent makes her uber sexy. Plus, I like how she gets under the skin of Jon Snow. Ygritte was fond of saying “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” I don’t want to talk about any spoilers if you haven’t read or watched Game of Thrones but in the tv series, Jon and Ygritte left things unresolved and hopefully this season we will see this cute couple either get together or fall apart.  I recommend reading or watching the show because it is super good and it has so many layers to it.
