1. First of all, I LOVE that you chose the film Office Space. I never would have thought of it. Brilliant! (Gary Cole: The Face that Launched a Thousand Memes…)

    Secondly, you had me at the red Swingline stapler.

    Thirdly, yup – like so many others, I know this guy.

    You had me laughing all the way through your post, remembering scenes from this film. Gary Cole is the perfect choice for this role and, like you said, he relishes it. I have GOT to see this again!

    Thanks for joining the blogathon, and for bringing Mr Cole with you!

  2. Loved your post! I’ve only seen Office Space once (a friend loaned it to me and promptly took it back!), but I remember how much I enjoyed it, and Gary Cole is a great choice! I really enjoyed your descriptions of the scenes — I can picture them all! Good stuff. Thanks much for joining us in the blogathon!

  3. Good choice and excellent post! He is one of the great villains and totaly deserves a place here, and we can never be reminded too often just how hilarious Office Space is. Good for a re-watch at least once a year…

  4. Bill Lumbergh wouldn’t have been my first choice for this blogathon, but he is a perfect villain! As you point out, it’s his inability to understand how his actions affect other people that make him so evil. And for me, the only thing worse than being ruthlessly murdered by a psychopaths is being told I have come into work on a Saturday 🙂

  5. I’ve never seen this movie, but do know some of Cole’s work. I have seen his “boss” character used on a lot of memes and shared on facebook. So that’s where those images are from, this movie. Going to find it and rent it-thanks for this post, I enjoyed it!
