Comedian Romany Malco is Better at Internetting than You

"While most actors dip into Web comedy to promote a film project or to fool around with half-formed ideas, Mr. Malco’s online presence is savvily planned, maintained daily and constantly tailored to his audience’s appetite. His skill with the medium is attracting attention: Last month the White House even asked him to be part of an advisory panel on social media outreach."
— From the very interesting NY Times profile of The 40-Year-Old Virgin/Weeds star Romany Malco’s use of the Internet to get closer to his fans. It’s a great read, even if it fails to mention the insane fact that Malco wrote MC Skat Kat’s parts in Paula Abdul’s "Opposites Attract."
