This just in: Joe Pernice, author of our Meat Is Murder book (still the best-selling book in the series, by the way), will make his network television acting debut at some point in the next couple of months, on the very wonderful Gilmore Girls. From the Pernice Brothers website:
"Joe Pernice will make his episodic television debut in an upcoming Gilmore Girls. He will play one of several Stars Hollow troubadour-wannabes that descend on the town after the regular troubadour, Grant Lee Phillips, is discovered by Neil Young and whisked off on a tour. Joe will sing a yet-to-be-determined song. No word yet on who the other troubadours are, but knowing the excellent musical instincts of the Gilmore gang, it will undoubtedly be good. I do not yet know the air date, but will post as soon as I do. Joe heads out to Burbank next week to tape. I know I have a proclivity toward making things up, but this is true. I swear to God."
I hope Joe gets to hang out with Lane. She rocks.
Now if we can only get a guest spot for Jim Fusilli on Veronica Mars...
