• Jayson Werth ‘Mean Girls’ Reference Awesome! Watch Video Of Washington Nationals Star Spoofing Glen Coco Quote With Dan Kolko (VIDEO)

    Washington Nationals star Jayson Werth is apparently a big Mean Girls fan. The right fielder made an awesome reference to the classic teen flick during a post-game interview on Friday.

    MASN reporter Dan Kolko spoke Jayson Werth to after this impressive ninth-inning catch saved a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets. And Werth started this interview just like any other athlete would. The Mean Girls reference seemingly came out of nowhere, which made it even more hilarious.

    “It was one of those games,” Werth began. “We got the W, that’s the most important thing. And we’re back here tomorrow to play again. And good for you, Dan Kolko! You go, Dan Kolko!”

    Watch Jayson Werth’s amazing Mean Girls reference below.

    For those of you who have never seen Mean Girls (seriously, if you haven’t, you need to Netflix it ASAP), this line is a reference to the below “You Go Glen Coco” candy gram scene from the film.

    Luckily, Dan Kolko took Jayson Werth’s Mean Girls joke in stride. The reporter posted the below tweet shortly after the game, referencing Lacey Chabert’s Mean Girls character.

    Mean Girls Glen Coco

    Perhaps Jayson Werth made this Mean Girls reference to honor last month’s 10th anniversary of the movie’s  theater debut. As part of this celebration, Dazed actually caught up with the actor who played Glen Coco. Turns out, David Reale’s place in film history happened purely by accident. He originally auditioned for(and failed to land) a different role in the cult classic. But he ended up as Glen Coco when he wandered onto the set.

    “What happened was, they ended up filming a lot of the school stuff right across the park from my apartment in Toronto,” Reale wrote. “One day I sort of wandered onto set to see if I could watch some scenes being shot and maybe get some free food (I was 19-year-old actor with no money so eating was daily mission). I sort of hung around with the background performers and ended up getting lunch because everybody just assumed I was actually hired to be there. At one point the director recognized me from my audition and, as a consolation prize, said something like, ‘Hey, I’m going to put you right in the front on this next scene and you’ll have a name and everything.’”
