Seems like the people at Paramount really aren’t joking with us about the Les Grossman movie they claim to be developing. MTV caught up with Bill Hader at the Comedy Awards and he filled in a few details. Please note, the detail of ‘Why the Hell are they making a Les Grossman movie?’ did not come up.
Hader revealed that the script is finished and was written by his buddy Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Fright Night).
“I just know the broad strokes. Michael just telling me, ‘I just wrote this scene where blah, blah, blah and I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s funny, man! It’s gonna be great.”
I still refuse to believe that this movie is actually happening. It’s an elaborate Punk’ding. I just know it. A) the character grew thin (not literally) before the credits rolled on Tropic Thunder. B) Tom Cruise isn’t going to spend four hours getting into a fat suit every morning for two months. C) Did we learn nothing from The Love Guru?
