Yes, Ed O’Neill, star of Modern Family and ’90s sitcom Married with Children will be commentating on Metamoris 2, which I think is good, but not as great as people think it’s going to be.
Maybe it’s a lack of faith on the viewers end; O’Neill seems to be a naturally funny guy which I think will play well with Rener’s energy, but at the same time people need to realize it will be the actor/black belt that is commentating, which means it will be unscripted, so he may not be as funny/interesting/insightful as you may expect.
It’s a big job with high expectations, but I think for the most part O’Neill will rise to occasion. Hopefully he’s researching these different competitors to offer some insight as well as color commentary, or he’ll just go full on with the jokes and leave the technical stuff to Rener. I don’t know, I guess we’ll find out on June 9th.
Are you happy that O’Neill will be commentating at the event? If not, who do you think should be sharing the booth with Rener?
