M is for... McLovin

M is for... McLovin
Actor: Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Films: Superbad (2007)

The Character
If you ask McLovin exactly who he is he will tell you that he is a 25 year old organ donor from Hawaii whose friends happen to call him Fogell (which is definitely nothing to do with it being a fake ID canIhavemyalcoholplease).

Although noone says it, McLovin is undoubtedly the one who drags his friends down with his dorky motives - although he is willing to take the rap as he finds himself in trouble with the law.

The Actor
Fogell aka McLovin was Christopher Mintz-Plasse's first role in film after auditioning alongside two friends. He quickly established himself as playing geeky characters with another similar part in Role Models (2008).

His next most recognised role came in the 2010 film Kick Ass as super villain Red Mist - a part that he will reprise later this year in Kick Ass 2.

He has also done some voice over work as Fishlegs Ingerman in How To Train Your Dragon, two spin-off shorts and will reprise the role next year for the sequel.

Classic Scene

  1. He's also great in the Fright Night remake. An inexplicable but welcome career.

  2. Who says you can't be a money making actor being a dorky geek character! I thought Superbad was hilarious.
