The best thing about 'The Watch'? The U.S. debut of Richard Ayoade

I haven't decided yet whether I'll go to a theater to watch "The Watch," which the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips recently reviewed.

But if I do, it will be because of one person in the cast: Richard Ayoade.

Many here in the U.S. haven't heard of Ayoade before – and certainly he doesn't stand out among the likes of fellow "The Watch" actors Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill – but he's the actor behind one of my favorite TV characters of all time – Maurice Moss.

Maurice Moss is a character on "The IT Crowd," a simply fantastic British sitcom. And Ayoade's depiction of the socially awkward, yet hilarious Moss is the best part of the show.

The video above is a highlight reel of some of the best Moss moments during "The IT Crowd," but even it doesn't really do him justice. If you get a chance to watch the series, I'd highly recommend it.
