David Rakoff On 'Snake 'N' Bacon,' Michael Kupperman's Adult Swim Pilot (VIDEO)

In light of the untimely passing of beloved author David Rakoff, we thought we'd share a strange little nugget from his career as a reminder of what a truly delightful guy he was.

In 2008, Adult Swim ordered a pilot of an adaptation of the comic book "Snake 'N' Bacon" from Michael Kupperman, the genius artist/writer perhaps best known for the graphic novel Tales Designed To Thrizzle. They ultimately didn't pick up the series, but it's pretty excellent, and the whole thing is on Adult Swim's website.

Rakoff starred in a weird and wonderful little sketch called "Secrets of the Real District Attorney," alongside James Urbaniak of "The Venture Bros." Rakoff plays the district attorney in question, giving the titular crime-fighting duo, Shake and Bacon, a harsh talking-to.
