I Lost on Jeopardy Video

Postby TheLazenby » Wed Nov 16, 2005 4:28 pm

People keep telling me that Charles Rocket (the recently deceased SNL-er) played that one contestant in the "I Lost On Jeopardy" video. I watched that video, and it looks nothing like him at all, but people are still saying that.

So settle a bet - who played the skinny guy with glasses??

(Just for comparison...)

That was Greg Kihn.

At the beginning of the video? I don't think so. We don't see Greg until the very end.

Dave? Greg? Anybody?
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

He's referring to the guy playing the architect contestant. Can someone supply a screen grab so we can compare?
This means something. This is important.

Hmm, I would need to watch it again, but I'm pretty sure that's not Charles Rocket in the video, although there are a few similarities.

Marty's site has a screen capture that, while a bit blurry, gives one a pretty good look at the contestant in question. The contestant's face seems to be a bit rounder than Charles's, but to be fair that could just be due to the angle.

I haven't seen the video in a while, but is Eric Lutz the person in question?

Yeah, if it had been Charles Rocket then I'm sure Al would have mentioned it at some point.

Oh, OK. I thought I was losing my mind for a second :-) It came up so much on various forums that I started to wonder...

I've actually seen you over at the saturday-night-live.com forums but haven't seen any Weird Al mentions in any of the (now many) Charles Rocket topics.
