Comment of the Day: That Asshole's Actually a Nice Guy

Today on Art Attack, our weekly "Cinema Slapfight" pitted two of the silver screen's most notorious assholes -- Christopher McDonald and William Atherton -- against one another. These two have such a talent for smugness that we sometimes forget they're actors.

Normally, we don't feature our writers' comments on Comment of the Day, but today, freelancer Christina Uticone was able to shed some light on the character of the real McDonald:

Hilarious! My MIL [mother-in-law-ed.] went to school w/ McDonald (he's from the sticks in Upstate NY) and he's definitely ACTING like an asshole--a super nice guy who never forgot where he came from. Recently showed up for his high school reunion and went bar hoppin' with his HS pals.

We're glad to know he's a swell dude.
