|I'll Never Forgive Myself.

USA Network played Ed, and I watched it.
Who the hell played the chimpanzee?
Ye gods! The trailer to that is included at the beginning of a classic Oberlin student film as a joke! That's how bad it is!
For a bulk of the movie, the chimpanzee outperformed Matt LeBlanc.
First bolt to pop from my hull came when the chimp watched Jennifer Aniston and the capuchin monkey on the TV.
You performed admirably.
If only you were given the lead role.
It seemed like an "I Owe Hollywood A Shameless Film" payout by Matt LeBlanc.
Kind of like Matthew McConaughey in this film
I don't even know if I can forgive you!! LOL
My guess is the chimp was Warwick Davis from willow. He has played Ewokks, the Leprechaun and a teacher in Harry Potter. haha

No rational person could forgive this film.
Not even this gassy-gigantic message can redeem this film.
IMDB user 'electronorg' isn't far from the mark. The chimp is
one hairy magic negro, complete in ape-suit. That's what enters my subconscious and rips at the fabric, and it's probably the manifestation of some real pieces of work. That's the kind of subversive shit that keeps people awake at night, biting their pillow, long after the swelling and throbbing subsides.
It can cause a writer to contemplate an abortion of his dreams.
Who is the got-damn actor that played the chimp? I sure hope it's not Davis.
The actors who played "Ed Sullivan," the chimp:
Naturally, they're stunt-people.
If the acting, the story's big finish, and the music all contributed to this horrible display of wasted money (which made $4 million domestic, according to Rotten Tomatoes).
It didn't help that Matt LeBlanc got outperformed by stunt-people.
