Judy Greer and Stephen Colbert Revisit Their Un-Aired 2002 Pilot

Casual star Judy Greer went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where the two reminisced about a pilot the two of them shot fifteen years ago. The two played siblings on the show, Untitled Ken Finkleman Project, and while Greer’s never seen the final product Colbert got the VHS out of the vault and gave us a look at what might’ve been. Golfing shenanigans! Journalistic ethics! What more could you want?

“The chemistry!” Greer exclaims, “Come back? I don’t know, I think the world needs to see this.” “I think that’s all the world needs to see,” the host replies. I don’t know about that Stephen, but that Richard Simmons reference does feel way 2002 though, and should probably be updated. We want to see tragically under-represented comedic talent Judy Greer in all the things, but then again, she’s probably busy now making her own awesome films.

The two once-siblings also talk a bit about their Catholic upbringings, and oh my god did you know Greer’s mom was a former nun? “I do like to remind her that my father is her actual second husband, because her first husband was Jesus.” She jokes about pitching the story of her then-nun mom swimming in a red bathing suit as the premise of a reality show, but I would legit watch that.
