Always Sunny Premiere Spawns ISU/Iowa Actor Challenge

If you’re a fan of WRNL then it’s more than probable that you also enjoy the misadventures of the gang at Paddy’s Pub from "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Nothing makes a knitting session fly by more effortlessly than Sweet Dee skanking up the joint. FX has recently released some sneak preview clips to this upcoming season, premiering Sept. 16, and it has gotten me more excited than Paul Shirley when he catches a glimpse of himself in the mirror.

Making the premiere even more enticing to WRNL nation is the reappearance of Iowa State alumnus Nate Mooney as Ryan McPoyle (see 44 seconds into the Halloween clip when he spills on Sweet Dee). Congratulations, Nate, you and your Iowa State aerospace engineering degree have taken you right to the upper echelon of television greatness. I really don’t know where you could go from here, I mean, you’re already on the greatest show ever made.

Maybe Mooney could take a page out of University of Iowa engineering drop out Ashton Kutcher’s playbook and start kicking out the worst possible movies ever scripted and then start banging Bruce Willis’ leftovers. I heard Brooke Burns is available. Thankfully for Mooney, the only thing he has in common with Kutcher is that he plays a douche bag on Always Sunny and Kutcher is one.

With the Iowa State vs. Iowa game taking place the weekend before the Always Sunny premiere, we at WRNL think it would be apt to issue a challenge to Mr. Kutcher on behalf of Mr. Mooney and the gang at Paddy’s Pub. The game: Flippy Cup. The Stakes: Loser has to quit acting and never return to the state that they have shamed over and over again by making shitty movies. The choice is yours, Ashton.
