5 INTRIGUING FACTS ABOUT CHARLIE DAY



FROM PEOPLE

He’s the breakout star of HORRIBLE BOSSES, fighting off JENNIFER ANISTON’S advances – and getting a little nuts during a certain vacuum scene.

Still, fans of FX’s raunchy hit IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA all ready know actor CHARLIE DAY as the show’s sweetly off the wall character CHARLIE.

Here are some fascinating facts to peruse before IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY’S season seven premiere arrives on SEPTEMBER 15.

1. HE’S GOING TO BE A DAD

On IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY, CHARLIE constantly chases after THE WAITRESS (MARY ELIZABETH ELLIS), a still unnamed server at a nearby coffee shop (and some time theme restaurant) who he’s obsessed with. THE WAITRESS can’t stand CHARLIE – going as far as to sleep with two of his friends – but in real life, CHARLIE has been married to MARY ELIZABETH since 2006 and the two are expecting their first child in December.

2. HE ONCE PLAYED HIS WIFE’S BROTHER/LOVER

When they were first dating, CHARLIE and MARY ELIZABETH played incestuous twins on a 2004 episode of RENO 911.

“Nothing says, ‘This is the girl I want to marry,‘ like pretending she’s your sister and making out with her to get a job,” CHARLIE facetiously asserted.

3. HE’S REALLY NOT FROM PHILADELPHIA

CHARLIE actually hails from Rhode Island – and he even lived in New York’s Harlem neighbourhood for a while – and now resides in Los Angeles. Although he said he digs Philly, there’s one familiar staple he doesn’t enjoy: “I don’t care for cheesesteaks. They make me shit my pants.”

4. HE MADE HIS ACTING DEBUT ALONGSIDE MARY TYLER MOORE

In 2000, CHARLIE made his first TV appearance, playing a mailroom clerk in the TV reunion movie MARY & RHODA, starring MARY TYLER MOORE and VALERIE HARPER.

5. HE’S A MUSICOLOGIST

Both of his parents are music teachers and CHARLIE’S written a lot of the music featured on IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY. But CHARLIE is a classical music fan. DEBUSSY is a favourite and he admits to trying to learn CLAIR DE LUNE on piano through YouTube instructional videos.

“I think I got to a certain age where I decided I’d rather be a baseball player than a musician,” he said of giving up on piano lessons as a child.

“Now, like most kids, I regret it.”
