I repeat, not a joke. From today's New York Post:

Quote:
COMEDIAN Dennis Miller will break into TV drama with a three-episode appearance on "Boston Public" this fall.

Miller, who was a co-host on "Monday Night Football," a regular on "Saturday Night Live" and had his own weekly series on HBO, will make his first appearance on the series in late October.

The king of obscure cultural references will play an investment banker convicted of securities fraud. Rather than go to prison, however, he accepts a sentence of community service - teaching math at Winslow High.


I can't wait. We know what FOX will be promoting during the playoffs now besides 24. Posted Image

It is a joke, even if it's not meant to be.

Very sad how this show has fallen from being my "#1 must watch program" to "I wouldn't waste my time."
The purpose of an education is to replace an empty mind with an open mind.

He swore he'd never take another acting job, after The Net and Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood. Maybe he needs the money.

He's broke that a couple of times, but only for the best films. Who can't forget him in the TNT staple Murder at 1600, or even better yet, his stunning turn in the classic Joe Dirt?

I suspect Murder at 1600 had already been shot when he told his TV audience that he was through with acting; it was released just eight months after Bordello of Blood.

But there's no excuse for Joe Dirt. Posted Image

For a moment there, I thought he'd be teaching French! Posted Image

It's only 3 episodes, not like he's the new star of the show.

Actually, I had a math teacher in HS that was kinda like Dennis Miller. I could see it working.
