Logie-Mad Chris Lilley Desperately Seeks Further Awards-Bait
Well, not really – but he’s just so bloody nice, humble and well adjusted that I thought I’d have a little fantasy time in the title of this piece. Anyway, after winning two Logies at Sunday’s ceremony, Chris Lilley admitted he’s not ready to retire all of his Summer Heights High characters just yet.
And then he probably helped an old lady out of her car, carried an expectant mother’s shopping for her, and donated 96% of his income to a charity that helps save adorable puppies.
“I really like the idea of bringing characters back, like I did with (Ja’mie) from the previous series (We Can Be Heroes),” he said.
“I’d love to bring them back because it’s really sad when you have to leave them behind.”
Asked if he had a favourite, Lilley said he is “fond of them all”.
Though it may seem like sacrilege (particularly after the genius of “Toby and The Special Kids” at the Logies), I hope he brings back Jonah and not Mr G. I’d had enough of Ja’mie by the end of We Can Be Heroes, and daresay the same fate would befall a Greg Gregson encore. But I could watch Jonah until kingdom come.
