HNEWS STORY
No joke: Pederson a regular on MADtv
Edmonton comic gets promotion on top-rated Fox show

Ron Pederson will have twice as much air time on MADtv this year.

EDMONTON - They love our guy.

Ron Pederson just got promoted. The Edmonton actor/comic improviser who landed a gig with MADtv last season is back on the late-night sketch comedy show. And in the ninth season of the show, starting Sept. 13, we'll be seeing a lot more of him.

"I've got twice as much air time; I'm taping twice as much," says Pederson, one of four "recurring" cast members -- along with Ike Barinholtz, Josh Meyers and Paul Vogt -- who've been elevated to "regular" status. Thursday was the first day of shooting in Los Angeles for the new season. "We did the Bible Dude sketch. Mike McDonald plays this guy who runs around smiting people with righteous wrath. He smites someone from a football team who's been stealing songs off the Internet."

Pederson and his MADtv cohorts, who include the six returning core members of the cast (McDonald, Frank Caliendo, Mo Collins, Bobby Lee, Aries Spears and Stephnie Weir), have been developing scenarios for a couple of weeks now. Which meant that Pederson, who's been home for the summer starring in Stewart Lemoine's The Margin Of The Sky, had to leave town before the Fringe. "It's the first time I've missed the Fringe in 11 years; it was pretty weird."

So Pederson is back in L.A., tinkering with characters for the upcoming season. He'll be Regis Philbin sometime soon, he says. In Thursday's taping, he played a character based on Gallagher, the comedian who smashes watermelons. "Tomorrow night we're shooting this sketch where I'm a news reporter at a crime scene in a black neighbourhood, Phil for Fox News. And the news anchor and the weather guy keep asking awful questions into my earpiece, like 'was he in a gang?' And the victim is a 98-year-old shot by cops." A sketch about the California election, where the candidates get interviewed by Connie Chung, is on the roster too.

The idea is to create recurring characters, says Pederson, who's planning to pitch Leonard Sexton, insecurity guard, based on the Lieut. Pill he created for Die-Nasty in space a season ago. "Hey, Pill is a better name. Leonard Pill, that's funnier."

Besides doubling his time taping, Pederson notices his promotion in other ways. "Last year I was in this little trailer outside the building. This year I have a dressing room with my name on it. And a parking space. With a label." He'll fill the latter with the Land Rover he's leasing from MADtv veteran Nicole Sullivan. He's renting a room in her Hollywood Hills house.

The new additions to the cast include two comics with Second City experience (Jordan Peele and Gillian Vigman ) along with Daniele Gaither and Nicole Parker.

LOL maybe Matt will hate Ron instead of Mike this year. Somehow I doubt it! Poor Mike.

Thanks for the article, Mad Dog. So glad he's getting more airtime! Can't wait for the 13th.

Hey, at least Ron's funny. Besides, how could I hate someone from my hometown? And speaking of which... I'd like to pose a question to the resident Ron experts (you know who you are ). Does he have a sister named Brandi, by chance?

LOL trying to track him down, I see... Watch out, Nicole! But no, I didn't realize he was from your hometown. That's pretty cool! And Josh is from mine! Well, the same state anyway.

What is that quote from? I've heard that before. Is that Denis Leary? Or is this just a coincidence?

As long as we're discussing celebrity links, I have one that tarza will no doubt find stimulating -- Chris Benoit went to my high school! Not that *you'll* care, mind you, but I figured I'd bring it up anyway just to sound like a big-shot.

Doh, that would've been a fun coincidence! I used to know a girl named Brandi Pederson in high school.

Sounds like you already know though, so I'll just ask you! DIG DAG DO....what could it possibly mean? Hmmm??

I'm probably showing my age here, but who is Chris Benoit?

As I'm looking over all these posts, with all the smilies in them, wouldn't it be funny if people posted so much that they started to act the same way in real life when meeting? Each sentence they say to each other ends with a wink, shifty eyes, tounge out, etc. LOL that would look so stupid, but it'd be a funny transition to watch. Run with it!



Sorry, too much coffee this morning...
