Shades of Green

You can be on the cover of Rolling Stone, write a book about your struggle with cancer, marry Hollywood royalty, and create your own Internet channel, but a single movie scene with an animal and you're forever "that guy who jerked off a horse."

Tom Green, the slack-jawed, goateed, screaming goof from Freddy Got Fingered and Road Trip, has aged into a bizarro Louis C.K. Divorced and 40. This year, Green, in his World Standup Comedy Tour, has veered from humping dead animals to spouting tirades against social underpinnings.

In the meantime, check out the Internet-based Tom Green's House Tonight. He's a skilled interviewer, especially with the A- to D-list comics, actors, and musicians revolving in and out of his door.
