Glenn Howerton, most well known for his role as the narcissistic (probable) sociopath Dennis Reynolds on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, stopped by Reddit for an AMA today to promote his new project, called The Wilderness of James. Like with most things involving Glenn Howerton, it was pretty hilarious.
Here are a few things we learned from the AMA:
How did Howerton come up with "The Dayman" song?
Well, the 'Ahhhhhh' part was kind of a riff on Queen's Flash Gordon theme song. And I had recently been playing a few live shows with my friend Sam Witwer's band The Crashtones, and we opened every show with the Flash Gordon theme song, so it was fresh in my head.
Originally, the Dayman Nightman thing was just one really silly joke in an episode that we never in a million years thought would be that interesting to people. And then it just took off.
I will say that in season 10, you will see our characters on an airplane.
After the Game of Thrones writers penned the "Flowers For Charlie" episode, and they offered the It's Always Sunny guys cameos, but it didn't work out:
They asked us if we wanted to be in an episode.
They offered us the opportunity to go and shoot something with them. Basically they said "if you guys want to do the show, we'll write something in there." We just never have time to do it.
The Wilderness of James is currently screening at the SXSW festival in Austin, TX. If you'd like to read more from Howerton's Reddit AMA, head on over here.
