Simon Rex (Dirt Nasty) just got everyone happy and sad, all in one Instagram post. Minutes ago, the Scary Movie 3 actor/rapper shared photo of Riff Raff and Kimbo Slice that was took behind the scenes from a pilot that Rex, Andy Milonakis and Jody Highroller (Riff) filmed for Cartoon Networks and Adult Swim. The TV pilot was for a Three Loco (Riff, Dirt & Andy’s rap group) show titled “Candy Ranch”, and it was directed by Eric Wareheim (“Tim and Eric”).
While this show, by its cast alone, seems epic, don’t get too excited. Adult Swim did not decide to pick it up for whatever reason. It probably wouldn’t have worked out however, as the hilarious rap triosince broke up. Last September, Milonakis shared a series of tweets aimed at Riff Raff, venting frustration about the Neon Icon pursuing his solo career over Three Loco’s. “Stop signing deals without reading them. Stop acting like ur Beyonce. Start treating people with respect or crash & burn,” Milonakis tweeted to Riff. He continued, tweeting “I don’t want you to do anything for me…it’s what you want us to do for you. @justinbieber has more humble demands.” While we will never get a full season, let’s hope the pilot is eventually released.
Check out a behind the scenes photo from the “Candy Ranch” pilot below.
