So I have been watching Flight of the Conchords episodes the past week or so and the girl that played Bretâ€™s girlfriend Coco. . .every time I saw her, I was like â€œDammit I know that chick from somewhere.â€
It was bugging the shit out of me, so today I looked up the show online and found her name: Sutton Foster. After reading her bio, I realized that we went to high school together in Michigan (Troy High). I knew I knew her face but I couldnâ€™t remember where from, which I believe is attributable to a combination of getting older and having moved 21 times in my life, which meant I went to one pre-school, one kindergarten, three elementary schools, two middle schools, two high schools, and three universities.
Admittedly, I didn’t really know her so it’s not like I can call her and catch up on old times or anything, but I definitely recognized her. Funny that so many people from Troy High went on to have TV and film careers. The guy who played the Red Power Ranger originally went there, too. He was our first baseman on the Troy High baseball team one year.
Anyway, the mystery is solved and we can now move on with our lives. By the way, the show is one of those “cult favorites” referred to me by none other than El Gammy. It is rather funny and it definitely grows on you. The songs are hilarious and if nothing else, three of the main characters are Kiwis, so they are funny just when they talk. If you have the time, give it a looksee.
