To me it would make more sense to cast Rivers Cuomo as Rivers Cuomo (or a character based on him), but I guess this British guy with the hot bod and washboard abs that Rivers is known for is good enough.
I actually am looking forward to this show though. I look forward to anything having to do with Weezer. The show is about a rock star who quits his band at the age of 30 to go back to college, which is exactly what Rivers did after the Make Believe tour ended in 2006.
And at least there is a bit of resemblance between the two.
