According to an article posted today on Pastemagazine.com, Rainn Wilson is going to be “unveiling” a cover of Joan Osborne’s “One of Us” with Rivers Cuomo, lead singer of Weezer, on April 11th. 

This is interesting, but what’s more interesting is that in an interview with Paste Magazine from June 2008, Rainn Wilson calls the National “uppity douche-bags.”

Here’s my question, Rainn.  How can you even go there?  You’ve got something to say about the National when you are collaborating with the lead singer of freaking Weezer??  Oh, I’m sorry, let’s compare. 

Battle Royale: Weezer’s “Beverly Hills” vs. The National’s “Abel”

And the National pounds Weezer’s stupid quirky foolishness into the dust with their seriousness, intensity, and ability to be something other than stupid.  Who’s the douche-bag now, suckaaaaaas!

Dammit, Rainn Wilson, you have  disappointed me and I never thought it was possible.  You know what?  I’m glad you didn’t get the part of Gob in Arrested Development.  You didn’t deserve it.

You can see the video here [of the interview clip, not the battle royale.  That was too gruesome to get on video]:
