Contrary To Washington Post Caption, Giovanni Ribisi Doesn’t Play Bass In The Roots

    Here’s a story for your humpday LULZ: In a recent issue of the Washington Post, Roots bassist Owen Biddle was identified, quite incorrectly, as the actor Giovanni Ribisi. The Ribisi mention came in a caption for a picture of the Roots that read “Joss Stone joins Tariq Trotter and Giovanni Ribisi of the Roots,” which is obviously HA. Biddle sort of does look like Ribisi, but you’d think you’d have heard Ribisi joined the Roots before this caption, being that Biddle has been in the band for three years and has been on the Jimmy Fallon show for more than a third of that time. Congrats, Washington Post. You’ve won mistake of the year already. [Village Voice]
