Martin Short, Jimmy Fallon Play Dress Up As Jiminy Glick, Donald Trump

  • ET Canada
An interview for the ages occurred on “The Tonight Show” when Jiminy Glick (Martin Short) interviewed Donald Trump (Jimmy Fallon). Glick is one of Short’s most well-known alter-egos, a laughably ignorant Hollywood interviewer. The character has been portrayed on “Primetime Glick”, “Maya & Marty” and even on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. Related: Drake […]

The 25 Best TV Episodes of 2016

The 25 Best TV Episodes of 2016
25. “Game of Thrones,” “The Winds of Winter”

This was a crucial season for “Game of Thrones” co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who, in their sixth year nurturing this beast into life, had to go off-book for the first time since author George R.R. Martin had been outstripped by the TV series. Although the pair pulled off an epic ninth episode — the signature stunner in seasons past — it was the finale that came together the best this year. The opening sequence alone is worth the price of admission because it certainly brings words like “cinematic” to mind. Set to a gorgeous score by Ramin Djawadi, the scene was deftly shepherded by director Miguel Sapochnik to create an almost sadistic amount of tension as we waited for Cersei’s green revenge to be unleashed. Once the catastrophic event occurred though, that was not the end of the dragon ride for us viewers.

Martin Short Hosts Saturday Night Live: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

Martin Short Hosts Saturday Night Live: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches
As a fanatic of both Sctv (remember ingenious skits like Half Wits?) and the criminally underappreciated Primetime Glick (check out this wet your pants-worthy interview with Steve Martin), the mere thought of former cast member Martin Short hosting Saturday Night Live‘s holiday special made me as excited as a kid with visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.

While I patiently pondered a possible Ed Grimley sighting, the show presented a wholly unexpected (and heart-tugging) cold open: The New York Children’s Chorus performing “Silent Night,” as a tribute to the victims of Friday’s horrific school shooting in Connecticut.

Here, in part two, Short discusses his time on the Canadian sketch comedy show "Second City Television," as well as his one season on "Saturday Night Live."

"Sctv," a Toronto based sketch comedy show that aired off an on from 1976 to 1984, spawned the likes of comedy legends John Candy, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Joe Flaherty and, of course Martin Short. Then, in the fall of 1984, the already established Short joined other "all stars" Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer for the last season of Dick Ebersol's run as the producer of "SNL."

Martin Short in How I Met Your Mother Season 7

How I Met Your Mother viewers enjoyed a guest appearance last season from Kids in the Hall actor Dave Foley when he portrayed a potential new employer for Marshall. The Foley character was so well received that that Vulture reports plans were in motion to ask the comedian to return in the recurring role. The good news for Foley was a sitcom pilot was picked up by CBS with him in the lead. The show, called How to Be a Gentleman, was bad news for Himym. Who did they go to next? Another Canadian comedian! Martin Short is on his way to season 7. Short is on a roll. He is also en route to season 7 of Showtime’s Weeds. (Get more Weeds news here, by the by.)

At any rate, the role for Short on Himym puts him into multiple episodes as Marshall’s new boss. Vulture reported, “It’s

'How I Met Your Mother' Casts Martin Short as Marshall's New Boss

"How I Met Your Mother" has tapped Martin Short for a recurring role, according to New York Magazine's Vulture. The 61-year-old comedian will reportedly portray Marshall's new boss in the upcoming season, replacing Dave Foley.

Foley portrayed Mr. Bloom who interviewed Marshall (Jason Segel) for a job at an environmental law firm in season 6. The "Wrong Guy" actor, however, will not be able to return to season 7 since his sitcom pilot "How to Be a Gentleman" is picked up by CBS.

It is unclear whether Short will take over Foley's role or he will appear as an entirely new character. It will be the first extended comedy role Short has tackled for American TV since his appearance on Comedy Central's series "Primetime Glick".

Martin Short Joins Cast of How I Met Your Mother

Last season’s How I Met Your Mother finale had a role setup by Kids in the Hall/News Radio alum Dave Foley as Marshall’s potential new boss at an environmental law firm. Producers loved Foley’s character so much, in fact, that they had hoped to have him back next season (guess this means Marshall got the job). Unfortunately, CBS greenlit Foley’s comedy How to Be a Gentleman.

Vulture reports that the Himym producers have opted to deal with the loss of one major Canadian comedy talent by signing an (arguably) even bigger Canadian comic, from an equally beloved sketch-comedy show: Martin Short.

The site confirms that he will be on the series next fall in a recurring, multi-episode role as Marshall’s new boss. It’s the first extended comedy role Short has tackled for American TV since his 2001 to 2003 Comedy Central series Primetime Glick.
