When it comes to celebrity bloggers, you never know who's really behind the blog. On Zach Braff's site (www.zachbraff.com), you know it's him.
Aside from the rare video blog where he chats up his fans, he spouts on random topics and is personably disparaging. Of course—being the good actor that he is—he also promotes his latest projects. But not in a bad way.
On his recent movie, "The Ex":
"So yes, I don't know why they made me so tan on the poster for `The Ex.' When I first saw it I thought it might be the South American poster, since we all looked a smidgen Latin. Or ... as Latin as I'm ever gonna look."
And a random observation:
"I could eat ice cream 3 meals a day. I think it is one of God's greatest gifts right behind TiVo and carpool lanes."
How could you not relate to that?
Ultimately, Braff's site is worth checking out, especially if you're a fan (I'll even let the prevalent "u's" slide—he's a busy man, right?). If you're not, check it out anyway, because some of the stuff he includes can be pretty darn funny.
