Sub Pop recently announced that David Cross, who you may or may not recognize as “Ian” from last year’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, will be releasing both a new CD and DVD under the name Bigger and Blackerer this coming May 25. Recorded during back-to-back shows on the same night at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre, the pair of releases are set to explore “Cross’ unique relationship with the deaf community,” “his canny insights into the editorial machinations behind the Bible,” and various “gastro-intestinal misadventures with his dog Ollie Red Sox.” In the off-chance that none of this excites you the DVD also promises to showcase “how well a bald, middle-aged white guy can fill out a pair of jeans.” Hook, line and sinker.

Late last year Cross was cast in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret with Will Arnett, a one-off show that was produced for Channel 4’s Comedy Showcase in the UK. The show was greenlit by the IFC and will debut in the States this fall. By this preview alone Todd Margaret looks to be very, very promising.
