The Cartoon Network showed off a bunch of neat stuff in their upfront. While they have some stuff that only kids and stoned college students will watch, they showed off a brand new Looney Tunes show, a new Green Lantern cartoon, and a whole block of DC Comics programing called DC Nation. And I almost forgot to mention the new Thundercats series! Every kind of cartoon nerd in my heart is crying out with way too much joy right now.

After playing a Hollywood jerk for so long on Entourage, any part on 2.5 Men is sure to come naturally to him.
