Hitman goes MAD
By TYLER McLEOD -- Calgary Sun
It's only a matter of time until Fox gives him a sitcom.
After appearing in an episode of the The Simpsons last season, Calgary's WWF champ Bret (The Hitman) Hart tackles the tube again -- this time on MadTV.
"I'm going to make the kids stay up and watch it," Hart tells the Sun.
"That way they can see how hard I work when I'm away."
"Mad was harder to do. The Simpsons I did in three minutes. This one took a whole eight."
While on tour with the WWF, Hart met one MadTV's many Canadian staffers, head writer Brian Hartt. "I told him he could be an official member of the Hart Foundation if he got me on the show."
The skit was taped two weeks ago and has a youngster bringing the WWF champ home to deal with a pestering sister and nagging mom.
"It's basically Bret Hart setting things straight," Hart explains. "I've always hated bullies, so it was fun."
Hart said he always enjoys showing people other sides of his personality and felt he was able to hold his own against the cast of comedians.
"I think they were surprised. We might do another one in the future," Hart says.
