Anthony Weiner Isn't Done Lurking on Your Computer Screen

He's staging a comeback as a fictional version of himself.


Anthony Weiner, being heard.

You may be under the impression that Anthony Weiner's sexting addiction nuked his political career. After all, this fall GQ's Marshall Sella wrote a poignant profile of the failed New York mayoral candidate that ended with the following detail:

Anthony Weiner padded his way in front of me to the door. I told him he'd be back. Not to be polite or fill a gap; it's the way he's built. He pondered the remark briefly, then shrugged. But, for once, it was hard to read him. He might have meant: No, it's too late for all that. He might have meant: Of course I will.


Well, the verdict is in: Of course he will.

The comeback commences Friday, when the former congressman and notorious sexter will guest star in the season finale of Amazon's Alpha House, which follows the lives of a handful of misfit senators living together near Capitol Hill.

He's playing himself, naturally.
