Obligatory Josh Radnor Update

Radnor filming "Liberal Arts" at Kenyon (August Steigmeyer)

Kenyon’s third most famous thespian graduate (after Paul Newman and the radiant Allison Janney, of course) has tried his hand at breaking into Kenyon’s other area of expertise: the world of literature.

Gawker reports that Radnor will release a memoir called One Big Blissful Thing in April, and that it will describe his journey from his suburban Ohio life to his experience “drinking an indigenous plant medicine [read: hallucinogen] called ayahuasca with a shaman in Brazil,” hopefully with some mention of his years at Kenyon in between. Since his last (coolly received) movie was called happythankyoumoreplease, Radnor also seems to be furthering his habit of long, vague titles, although at least this time he used spaces.

Gawker skeptically notes that “Being famous means all the drivel you write while tripping balls you think would make a great book CAN actually be made into a book,” but that’s not really fair. After all, Radnor is just trying to live up to his alma mater’s reputation.
