Andy Dick Tells Me: "I'd Be Dead Now If I'd Accepted That Part"

In a Q&A in my riveting new column, Andy Dick is as open as the giant bottle of booze that he's not reaching for.

Andy told me he's been sober for a while and misses the stuff like crazy, but he's realized you can get laid without it.

He also talks about:

*The movie role that Will Ferrell got to do instead of him, thereby becoming a film star--though Andy is philosophical about the whole thing, feeling it saved his life.

*The time he stalked Crispin Glover, one of his inscrutable idols, who fully remembered the stalking when they recently worked together.

*Whether he sleeps with male costars or groupies

*And he compares himself to Charlie Sheen, saying, "I'm like a cat. I've had more than nine lives and I always land on my feet."

You will go crazy for this amazing interview.

By the way, I only ran one of his mug shots (above) because he looks so handsome in it.

Cheers.

You're funny.  "Well, did you hook up with THAT guy?"

Thanks. I had fun continually asking that and he wasn't flustered at all.

I totally got it!  

And, actually, I sorta get the "bad boy/dark side"...and actually "glad" he gets it...at least now...he probably didn't then.

You're all deluding yourselves if you don't think comics (no matter how successful) don't have a dark side....Andy's was just more visible...yes, he did bad things...the others (not limited to comics) just hide it better.

P.S. - [full disclosure] I love me a dive bar as well....the folks who "hate" you will tell you up-front...the rent boys make it ($$) apparent, up-front as well...the regular folk are regular no pretense (mostly).

That's why Boots and Saddle was my regular place....back in the day.

That's very compassionate, as usual.

Well, Andy IS white. His privilege precludes compassion.

You tow were destined to be together. You're probably the only one he wouldn't hit.

Great, great interview! He comes off so sweet you wonder where that dark, dangerous side comes from.
