Dane Cook Sore At Obama-Flouting Cocaine Enthusiast Who Shall Remain Nameless
Dane Cook may be rich and famous, but no one will let him just enjoy it. Everywhere you look, there's someone trying to chip away at the comedian, whether it's a talk show host trying to coax him into a confession of vehicular manslaughter, or a fellow comic like David Cross who delights in taking potshots at him from the cool kids' table. At least, that's what we're inferring from Cook's interview with Vulture, where Cook levels a not-so-veiled counterattack at someone who just happens to share Cross's IMDb credits:
If we're talking about comedians and people that have taken shots at me, I don't get it. I don't get that, 'cause I know that the Chris Rocks and the Steve Martins and the Billy Cosbys and the Rodney Dangerfields, guys that I loved, embraced me. Other comics, what people deem "alt comics," a lot of them have egg on their face 'cause they're now making talking-animal movies. 'Cause they sold out hard-core. And they have to answer to their fans now -- "Hey, I took a shot at Dane," but you're in Alvin and the Chipmunks. And you know what? More power to you. You did a movie that goes against what you preached, and what you hard-core vehemently nailed me on. I know you got a kid to feed. You might have a sick mom that you have to take care of. And that's okay. I'm not gonna take your legs out from under you. But I am aware that you put your head in your pillow, and maybe you should have bit your tongue a little bit.
Sure, it might have looked like the ultimate act of selling out, but Cross totally got Alvin and Theodore to smoke some crystal meth at the wrap party, OK? Top that, Cook.
