David Cross Gets Literary Support from Keith Olbermann

9780446579483_154X233.jpgEarlier this year, it seemed like publishers inked book deals with comedians on a daily basis. David Cross, the star of Mr. Show and Arrested Development will lead the pack, publishing his new book today: “I Drink For a Reason.”

Cross’ book will join a crowded field soon, as comedians like Sarah Silverman and Jerry Seinfeld have set off bidding wars between houses. Time Magazine caught up with the deadpan comedian in an interview this week, getting his thoughts on the Arrested Development film, his upcoming stand-up tour, and the book.

Here’s more about Cross’ blurb from news anchor and author Keith Olbermann: “That was my idea. I’m friends with Keith, I like him quite a bit. And as he says in the blurb, we disagree about things, but we have very interesting, good, educated conversations about stuff. And we’re in a fantasy baseball league together.”
