As for Warren’s answers to the questions submitted for him last week on PopWatch:

Q: Warren, how can you live with yourself?!? — Jose

Dan Milano, Spencer Chinoy and Sean Baker on Bringing Warren The Ape to MTV
Filed under: Features, Celebrity Interviews

Way, way back in January, MTV introduced the nation's critics at the TCA press tour to Warren The Ape. But it was a re-introduction to many. Warren -- a failed actor / successful drunk named Warren Demontague who is a fuzzy ape with a soft helmet on his head -- is familiar to fans of the various 'Greg the Bunny' shows, which have appeared on IFC and Fox since the early 2000s.

This time, though, the focus is on Warren and his bumpy life. During the series, we see Warren trying out for roles, getting pulled over by the cops, and going to meetings. Lots of meetings. He's a fabricated American (PC for "puppet") with a lot of vices, and we tag along with him as he tries to work it out, including to his weekly therapy sessions with Dr. Drew Pinsky (yes, the real Dr.

Greg the Bunny’s ‘Warren’ goes Ape!

  • Nerdly
Warren “The Ape” Demontague is a brash, cantankerous, out-of-work actor. Having had a brief taste of success on the former sitcom Greg the Bunny, Warren’s life has been in a downward spiral ever since the show got cancelled. Over the past few years, Warren has paid more attention to drugs, booze and women than his career, which as of late has mostly consisted of a series of seedy exploitation films, obscure industrials, low-rent theatre productions and a regrettable string of skin flicks.

A parody of “the life of a celebrity” reality show, Warren The Ape focuses on the trials and tribulations of the D-grade celebrity puppet who is attempting to clean up his act, patch up his relationships and scramble his way back into the Hollywood limelight with the help of his doctor, Dr. Drew Pinsky, as you can see in thsi clip:
