At a recent family reunion, B-movie superstar Eric Roberts really got the business. The commotion allegedly began after the roll basket was passed around. Eric eagerly yet thoughtlessly grabbed a roll after being offered one by an unidentified relative. As he began spreading butter on it, witness claim that Eric’s grandfather, Garth Roberts, loudly exclaimed, “Yeah, you’ll never see Eric Roberts turn down a roll!”
There was a moment of silence as members and in-laws of the Roberts clan slowly realized that their clever patriarch had employed a word play by exploiting the homonyms “roll” and “role,” thus providing a “rye” commentary on Eric’s prolific and horrible acting career. A good laugh was had by all, even young Eric.
Roberts’ current project is “Cyborg Massacre,” which will premiere on TNT this fall.
