When David Spade spoke to the press last week about his CBS series Rules of Engagement, he described the comedy as “kind of funny, slightly edgy and maybe relateable.” I think that’s a fair assessment. Find out what else David Spade had to say about his career, Rules of Engagement and guest stars Joan Collins and Sara Rue, who will appear in this Monday’s episode.
Before we get to the specifics of the guest appearances and Spade’s comments on Collins, Rue and his mother, he had some interesting things to say on the subject of his career. He’s spent a lot of years banking on the sarcastic shtick and you have to admit, he’s good at delivering a dry, biting line. Still, after hearing what he had to say on the matter, I’m hoping there are some TV writers out there who might be creative and motivated enough to come up with a show and a role for Spade some time in the future that gives him the opportunity to reinvent himself.
Spade was asked about his career and the similar roles he’s played over the years and this is what he had to say…
As for Monday’s Rules of Engagement, below is CBS’ description for the episode.
David had good things to say about both guest stars in this week’s episode.
On the subject of his real mothers as compared to the mom Joan Collins portrays on Monday’s episode, Spade got serious and talked a little bit about tougher times during his youth and the role his mother played in giving him some kind of stability as a child.
