Hot Foote has been lucky enough to have some of the most devoted and passionate readers on the Internet. As such, we wanted to inform you of an excellent opportunity to acquire some valuable Egan Foote merchandise… by bidding for it over on ebay. The picture to the right is signed by the man himself, and even comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (a copy of which appears below).
Hot Foote previously reported that ABC had once again canceled The Nine. However, we have learned that the remaining episodes will be made available on ABC.com and will remain online until September 24.
These episodes are highly recommended, even if Egan has already revealed the show’s conclusion!
Here we go again. Another day, another incident for our good friend Egan Foote.
Egan Foote was arrested early Friday evening after a run-in with TV Squad blogger Bob Sassone. The incident apparently stemmed from comments made by Sassone earlier that day on TV blog TVSquad.com. In this post Sassone jokes about The Nine’s return and playfully hints at ABC running a The Nine marathon:
In the meantime, ABC has a plan: they’re bringing back The Nine again and running a marathon of shows the last week of August. Ha! Just kidding. I think ABC is done kicking that show around.
According to witnesses, Mr. Foote showed up at TV Squad offices sweaty and determined. He eventually found Mr. Sassone, smashed a stapler across his face and began choking the TV blogger. “You think that’s funny?” many witnesses reported hearing Egan repeating over and over. “This is my life, my livelihood. I put my heart into that show. You’re dead, motherfucker!” Luckily, other members of Bob’s TV Squad jumped in and removed Egan from the building, where police were waiting to take the insurance processor away.
Last month, Hot Foote was one of the first to report the exciting news regarding The Nine’s return to network television. However, today’s news is no cause for celebration: sadly, we just learned ABC has once again pulled The Nine from its lineup after an exciting, albeit brief, second run on the network.
With four unaired episodes of the highly acclaimed drama remaining, fans are wondering when and where they may be able to view these remaining episodes. “Where is The Nine? I just want some closure,” said Hot Foote reader ‘Uter.’ “I mean, how can they leave us hanging like this? How can they not finish the story?” For those like Uter clamoring for some resolution, Egan Foote may have provided such closure long ago. As Hot Foote reported back in November 2006, Egan inadvertently revealed the conclusion of season 1 (warning: spoilers).
However, while some are angry at the lack of finality, other astute Hot Foote readers have a more pressing question: how will Egan Foote react to the news? “Yo, homeboy’s gonna bug out, yo,” said reader ‘erocks.’ “I can’t wait to watch this shit.” erocks is right to anticipate some fireworks, considering Egan’s efforts to get The Nine put back on the air and his history of erratic behavior (for more examples of Egan’s unpredictable behavior, click here, here, here, here, here, and here.
What this development means for the upcoming Egan Foote cartoon remains to be seen.
We will update this story as more information becomes available…
Thanks to Hot Foote reader ‘GC’s’ for sending in this picture of his run-in with Egan Foote in Oklahoma City
Needless to say, the return of canceled ABC drama The Nine was welcome news here at Hot Foote. While Egan Foote’s consistent erratic behavior has never left Hot Foote staff with a dearth of news to report to fellow Egan fanatics, The Nine’s return was nonetheless a welcome development to Egan Foote and his fans. So, as soon as we heard the news the entire Hot Foote staff immediately locked ourselves in a conference room and began brainstorming how we could up the ante and bring you the best Egan related content on the web. It was immediately clear what we had to do. While Hot Foote has been lucky enough to receive contributions from a variety of sources, we have not yet heard from the man himself.
We had our mission: to have Egan Foote himself contribute to the site devoted to his life. We thought this would be easy; after all, Egan has never been one to shy away from exposure and has never feared speaking candidly about whatever is on his mind. However, we immediately faced a monumental challenge: locating the insurance processor. Unfortunately, as evidenced by the lack of posts as of late, Egan has been a man of mystery and even our most talented citizen paparazzi have been unable to locate him. We searched everywhere, to no avail. We were just about ready to give up on our goal to Find the Foote when we received the following note: “I have heard that you are attempting to find me. Alas, I am a master of elusiveness and your efforts will be futile. Egan, out!” However, what Mr. Foote did not realize was that he had included a return address on his envelope.
Hot Foote staff immediately visited the address and approached Egan about contributing to the site. Eventually, Egan agreed that he would live blog the first returning episode of The Nine, providing insight not only into the show, but into the man himself:
Hello Hot Foote readers, Egan here (arms flapping), ready to watch the long awaited return of The Nine to… uh… ABC. Hot Foote has set me up with an electrified typewriter, as well as a television device and has asked me to comment on the program. I will do my best to type with the haste required of a so-called “live blogger,” and will try to provide as much insight into the program as possible. So, without further adieu, Egan, in!
9:59: Ah, the closing credits to According to Jim, the best part of the show. I do not quite understand the appeal of this program, but ABC has shown questionable programming judgment before… namely the cancellation of The Nine.
10:00: Ok, here we go, it’s… uh… Nine Time.
10:02: Wow, I can’t believe how long this recap is. I think I could have done a much better job – we were in a bank robbery, we got out. Being a hostage is, uh, bad (wipes sweat from forehead).
10:03: Ok, onto the show.
10:06: Ah, my favorite ad-libbed lines of all time. “Put my best Foote forward.” Get it?
10:08: This scene took 21 takes because my nose kept bleeding.
10:11: Commercial time. Ah, an ad for Head On (arms flapping). I give that product Egan’s seal of approval. And if the Head On people are reading, Egan is available for any Foote related products you may introduce.
10:12: I forgot to shave this morning. This is boring, how do you work that Divo device so I can fast forward.
10:14: Finally! Back to the… uh… show.
10:16: Franny Rios. Hubba Hubba!!
10:23: Ah, what has now become known by the cast as the ‘Amputee Scene,’ called that for its notable lack of a Foote. Funny story. We had been shooting for like 10 straight hours… uh… (arms flapping)… and for some reason the director kept calling me Poindexter. I repeatedly asked him to stop, but when he refused I hate to put my Foote down. So I calmly walked up to him and choked that motherfucker to within an inch of my life. Timmy Daly and Scotty Wolf had to drag me off. Needless to say, I complied with the request that I sit out the next few takes. And that’s the story of the ‘Amputee Scene.’
10:27: With all due respect to Lizzie, Egan would have chosen Franny too.
10:29: Wow, what a great show. Damn you ABC for canceling us!
10:32: Another commercial break. I have to urinate. Egan, out!
10:34: Egan, in.
10:37: Kim Raver gives me a bone…oh no, did I just type that? (arms flapping)…where is… uh… the delete key on this keyboard? Oh no… (wipes sweat from forehead)… looks like I just put my Foote in my mouth.
10:41: Here’s a little tidbit – that stunt was actually performed by my twin brother, Seamus Foote.
10:46: ANOTHER commercial break. I guess I’ll take this opportunity to peruse this ‘Hot Foote’ site everyone keeps mentioning… My Lord! They know everything! There goes my (Eg)anonymity… Hey! That is just not true – I was robbed for my Reebok Pumps, not Air Jordans! The rest of it, I must admit, is in fact true.
10:50: Ok, we’re back from commercial. Thank God. If I had to see that douche from the Amstel commercial sing “well we all need… someone… we can leeeeeeaaaaan on” one more time I was going to go crazy.
10:52: Look, we’re going to get out of the bank!!! Oh…uh… false alarm. Sorry to excite you.
10:59: Previews for the next episode, my favorite part of the show. Oh no… couldn’t be… was someone in on the bank heist? Please don’t be poor old Egan, I was just getting in good with these guys!
11:00: Egan, out!
