Christopher Guest’s “Family Tree” Has an Irish Root with Chris O’Dowd


Okay, it is not Sci Fi, but it does concern a certain actor formerly of the geek-centered UK show, The It Crowd and we cover geek culture. Chris O’Dowd (also of the US hit film, Bridesmaids) will star in a new HBO series created by the guru of mockumentary comedy, Christopher Guest (This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show). Family Tree premieres on HBO this coming Sunday at 10:30PM ET. For this new series, O’Dowd says he had to switch up his usual acting style from quick-to-the punchline sitcom acting, to the more realistic and subtle humor approach that Guest prefers in all of his mockumentaries. Also stars Michael McKean and a host of other Guest staple actors.
