Jon Lovitz Once Beat The Living Shit Out Of Andy Dick

Jon Lovitz is a legend. Everyone knows this. SNL, Rat Race, The Wedding Singer, a million other roles he's absolutely dominated. He's just one of those Hollywood actors who has stuck around forever, showing up here and there with often small, but memorable, roles. Liked by most, loved by some, hated by few.

I feel like Andy Dick falls into a similar category as Lovitz, but as the opposite. Everyone kind of knows who he is, but no one really likes him. He's blowjob guy from Old School, the motel guy from Road Trip and generally just kind of known for being himself and a disaster. He was accused of a ton of #MeToo conduct, such as groping an Uber driver's genitals, and some other charges you can check out here. I am not particularly confident that Andy Dick fans exist. If you are one of these, please let me know and then go ahead and get yourself some help.

For context before we get into the actual physical beatdown mentioned in the headline, let's give you some context to Lovitz and Dick's past because some investigating proved these two guys HATE one another. According to an interview Lovitz did with CBS back in 2007, their beef dates back to 90s sitcom NewsRadioa time that Lovitz goes on record to say "I don't want to talk about that" about. The initial issue surrounds the death of actor Phil Hartman. Lovitz accused Dick of giving Hartman's wife Brynn, who was a recovering addict, cocaine at a Christmas party at Hartman's house in 1997, causing her to fall back into drug use. This may have eventually led to her MURDERING Hartman and committing suicide herself in May of 1998. When Lovitz joined the cast of NewsRadio as Hartman's replacement, he and Dick got into an argument in which Lovitz reportedly said "I wouldn't be here if you hadn't given Brynn coke in the first place," a remark Lovitz has since apologized for.

Not much is known what went down over the next near decade, but then, in early 2007, Dick allegedly approached Lovitz at a restaurant and said "I put the Phil Hartman hex on you—you're the next to die." (Uhhh, chill out man). Later that year, in July, Lovitz and Dick got into a physical confrontation at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. Lovitz demanded an apology from Dick, who refused to apologize, and in turn accused Lovitz of blaming him for Hartman's death. (Not wrong) Naturally, next, Lovitz smashed the living shit out of Dick's head into the bar.

In the same CBS interview, Lovitz said the following:

"I just wanted him to say, 'Oh, I'm sorry,'" said Lovitz. "Then he leans into me, 'Well you know why I said that? Because you said I killed Phil Hartman that's the first thing you said to me when you got on the show.' I just lost it so I grabbed him by the shirt and I pushed him against the wall. And he's just smiling at me, and then I realized 'oooh, here's my chance.' So I grabbed him by his shirt and pushed him really hard and I smashed his back and his head into the bar. And I did it again. I would have kept going, but the doorman broke it up."

The amount of money I would pay to be a fly on the wall to watch Lovitz just beat the living shit out of Dick. "I did it again.I would have kept going but the doorman broke it up" is a preposterous line. Imagine a reality in which a doorman doesn't step in and Jon Lovitz murdered Andy Dick? I'm not sure a single judge or jury in the world convicts him.

I had a ton of respect for Lovitz already as an actor, a fashion icon, a man. That grew exponentially upon discovering he put the absolute beatdown on Andy Dick, one of the least likable people on earth.
