Samm Levine of ‘Freaks and Geeks’ had a passive-aggressive airplane war too

Samm Levine played Neal Schweiber, one of the geeks, on Judd Apatow’s canceled-too-soon cult classic Freaks and Geeks. You might also know him from Inglourious Basterds—he was in Brad Pitt’s Nazi-bashing crew. You should love him for his Twitter feed, too, because he just ripped Elan Gale, the Bachelor producer who told an annoying woman on his flight to “eat his dick,” then rode his passive-aggressive notes to viral fame, a new one.

It’s a nearly perfect parody. In Levine’s version, he whines about an old man on his flight with diabetes (it was rumored, but not confirmed, that Gale’s foe had cancer) and then swaps his insulin with water and pats himself on the back.

Apparently, a lot of people took Levine seriously and accused him of stealing insulin from an elderly diabetic man.

Patton Oswalt, king of the long-form Twitter jokes, gave Samm props.

And—kind of amazingly—so did Elan Gale.
