For Your Consideration: Kirk Lazarus

The genius of Tropic Thunder is that the possibilities for jokes are basically endless. They created this bizarre meta comedy that broke through the Third Wall.  And Awards season only offers even more outlets for spoofing the Hollywood machine– a machine that ramps up the pretentious seriousness about this time of year. More video’s after the jump, along with some morning news.

This was one of the videos for Rain Of Madness, the mocumentary made about Tropic Thunder. We did an post on our 6 favorite fake promos a few months back, and this one was one of my favorites.

For the rest of you, here’s the industry news wrapup:
