The Pajiba 10 — For Your Consideration: Aisha Tyler

By Rob Payne | Miscellaneous | June 18, 2012 | Comments ()


By far, the best thing about G4's coverage of E3 (the Electronics Entertainment Expo, if you're nasty) this year, other than the Watch Dogs gameplay demo, was the reminder that comedian/actress Aisha Tyler is a beautiful badass. I've been a fan since she established the mold for Joel McHale's sarcastic and sexy delivery on "The Soup" when it was still called "Talk Soup" and had most recently introduced a curious world to Hal Sparks. She went on to play both Joey's and Ross's girlfriend in latter day "Friends," but, sadly, outside of her purr-fect (yeah, I went there) performance of Lana Kane on "Archer," and the occasional glorified cameo in shows like "Reno 9-1-1" and movies like Balls of Fury, she hasn't been much in the public eye. I envy those of you who have the time and the tolerance for daytime chat shows like "The Talk." Then comes E3 2012. I wasn't even planning on watching, but there's Aisha Tyler co-hosting the first night, totally knowledgeable and funny, and I'm hooked. Naturally, some of the more asinine viewers had complaints about an attractive lady "pretending" to be an expert on video games. Naturally, Tyler replied to those asshats on Facebook (choice excerpts below):

"I go to E3 each year because I love video games. Because new titles still get me high. Because I still love getting swag. Love wearing my gamer pride on my sleeve. People ask me what console I play. Motherfucker, ALL of them... So to all the haters out there who claim I don't play; To the GAF dicks, Gamespot trolls, to every illiterate racist douchebag on Youtube: Flame away. Go nuts. Post every jackass comment your heart desires. I'll still be playing when your mom's kicked you out of her basement and you have to sell your old-ass console and get a real job. For now, I say to you respectfully, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, GFYS."

So, now, for your consideration, I present Aisha Tyler as a possible Pajiba 10 nominee. She still probably won't bang you, but the chances of a stimulating experience are 100%:
