In Adult Swim’s ‘Time to Waste Time’ Interview by David Wolinsky, Sasha Grey lists the Venture Brothers as a favorite cartoon on Adult Swim.
Sasha Grey is a former porn actress turned legit actress, a move solidified with her roles in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience in 2009 and HBO’s Entourage in 2010. She’s now reflecting on the career she retired from in a new photography book titled Neü Sex. (It’s filled with glossy pictorials, essays pondering pornography’s place in society, and at least one irony-free Sartre quote.) Grey looked back even further in her past and pointed to six cartoon shows that she’s found to be an acquired taste, yet ultimately quite delicious.
Brock Samson is probably the sexiest cartoon ever. [Laughs.] If he was a real guy, every woman would want him. I just think it’s a hilarious show and the characters are all great. There are even a few [David] Bowie appearances, and I’m a big fan of him. So I just think they bring together so many different elements in the show. The Monarch is, you know, a failed bad guy. [Laughs.] It’s kind of awesome.
That was one I started watching in the second season and I decided to stop until it came out on DVD and I went and grabbed the first two after the second one ended. I heard about that because at the time I didn’t have cable, so the only show I watched was Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I was at a friend’s house and they were like, “I have to turn this on! It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, I have to turn this on!”
