KSK At The Movies: We Couldn't Find the Tom Brady or Matt Leinart Screen Test

As much as I am a lover of warm weather, summer is the season of stale cultural retreads. No worthwhile TV. Scads of bland popcorn flicks and remakes. Sure, a few football players helpfully implode their careers in the service of futilely attempting to slake our insatiable lust for football news, but truthfully, fresh Mike Vick dogfighting jokes probably won't last us through June, the discovery of a doggie Dachau or no. And because I'm enough of a low-level functionary at work, I can't get much time to enjoy the summery splendor - I worked two out of three days over Memorial Day weekend, don't have enough money to take any exotic vacations, bitchbitchbitch, etc.




Anyway, there are always at least one or two media-related gems that keep me going. Hopefully, The Simpsons Movie will be one. Another such movie is this week's Knocked Up, Judd Apatow's follow-up to The 40-Year-Old Virgin. In a bit of viral marketing, the filmmakers released this outtake with Michael Cera, best known as Arrested Development's George Michael, fabulously and petulently botching a key scene. It's no Lily Tomlin having it out with David O. Russell, but it's all done in a winkingly good humor and fine watching nonethless.

Outstanding. That kid has so much passion, no wonder he taught Ann the ways of the secular flesh.

BeaverFever said...

larry burns said...

i uh dn't get the family circus, please explain.

Burnsy said...

Superbad looks better than Knocked Up, but it's all genius to me.

Christmas Ape said...

beaverfever: later today

larry burns: it's sort of a riff on our combined fondness of re-captioning Family Circus comics and lolcats. Please try to keep up.

J Money said...

So, wait... I'm slow on the uptake -- is this realy a melt-down on the set or is it just a well-done phony?

BeaverFever said...

that's the red band trailer, with all the swearing, sooo.. nsfw-ish?

Burnsy said...

j money, it's a shoot they did for Apatow and Cera's upcoming Superbad comedy. They released this and some media outlets picked it up as real, which is generating a lot more attention for the film. Seth Rogan was picked to star in Knocked Up from the start.

Shan said...

i dont care if it is a fake, i would punch him in the face, for being a terrible actor, and a bitch.

Wormfather said...

And here I am thinking that directors are treated like GODS on the set.

See, shoudl have had Mel Gibson direct this, no way you talk back to Mel.

CSG said...

"Fuck this noise, fuck all of you, this is bullshit."

This statement is applicable to so many situations.

BeaverFever said...

yeah, i might have to use that line at work the next time people piss me off.

Tech N9ne's Tribute to Falco said...

That wasn't just gay, that was McSweeney's gay.

Brother Joshua said...

cera's trailer he made for himself after arrested development got cancelled was pure genius. i forget the name but it's on youtube and all he does is talk about how awesome he is. it's hilarious.

Danny G said...

Jon Oum said...

Wormfather said...

@Austonboston...

You havnt posted here yet, but Matt has something to say to you in a post on the last article. Comment Gallary is awaiting your response.

Thank You.

Reel Fanatic said...

That Cera clip is indeed pretty friggin hilarious, and Knocked Up should just be a blast .. .The world needs many more good R-rated comedies, especially in summer

Robert said...

Michael Cera is going to run the comedy game in the next five years. This only makes my case stronger.

Julia said...

"Outstanding. That kid has so much passion, no wonder he taught Ann the ways of the secular flesh."

Hee Otto!

I can not fucking wait for Knocked Up, Judd Apatow can do no wrong.

Smello said...

How do we not get pictures of Jean Grey in posts that mention Ape's pussy?
