Craig Newmark Responds To Joke About Fighting Tom Anderson In Funny People

Posted Aug 3, 2009

Judd Apatow’s newest movie Funny People takes a few swipes at making fun of celebrities such as Megan Fox and Jon Favreau.  But in an unexpected move, Funny People also target Craigslist founder Craig Newmark and MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson.

A question that was asked in the movie was who would win a fight between Newmark and Anderson.  Nobody could answer the question in the movie, but Newmark himself responded.  ?We?d fight like nerds to the embarrassment of all,? quipped Newmark.

Funny People made $22 million in the opening weekend.  The movie stars Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Eric Bana, and Jason Schwartzman.  Last month, Jonah Hill discussed a fake Twitter account using his name on Letterman.
