During the 1995Ã¢â¬“1998 seasons of Saturday Night Live, comedian Jim Breuer had his work cut out for him. Standing alongside Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon, and Tracy Morgan—Breuer most definitely held his own, even if that meant acting like a goat. Of course, Breuer's comedic range extends beyond farm animals, and he can be regularly heard on Sirius. Way before the marijuana-laced Pineapple Express film made a dent in cinema, Breuer masterfully executed the role of Brian, a stoned-out horse-killer in the 1998 comedy Half Baked. This is one funnyman who's obviously way ahead of his time.
