Chris Wylde, False Idol

Did you catch this guy on American Idol last night?

He performed a clever rap, Simon rolled his eyes, and we were on to the next reject. But was that not Chris Wylde, the actor who has appeared in numerous TV shows and commercials … and HAD HIS OWN SHOW on Comedy Central?

Someone please shed some light. I’m dying to know how stupid American Idol thinks we really are. It is reality TV, so I expect a ringer or ten to keep that William Hung vibe alive … but a recognizable comedian? I’d hate to think AI wasted time on him when there’s another Clay Aiken waiting to be discovered.

UPDATE: Video!
