Pat Shingleton: "He "Plays" A Weatherman on TV!"
Recently I was introduced to a young lad as, "This is Pat, he plays a weatherman on TV!" Larry David accused a weatherman of predicting rain to keep people off the golf course so he could have it to himself in a scene from Curb Your Enthusiasm. Steve Carell played Brick Tamland in the original "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," and was described by his news director as "completely useless." The former NBC comedy, Good Morning Miami showcased Sister Belinda as a weather-nun and John Candy was weather bandito Juan Gavino on Saturday Night Live in 1981. An X-Files episode found agents Mulder and Scully investigating a local weathercaster who caused weird atmospheric phenomena to occur. More examples were listed in Weatherwise Magazine.
