ROLE MODELS – 7 Movie Clip and the Trailer

     October 17, 2008

Opening on November 7th is the first big studio movie from director David Wain. While his name might not be that familiar to you, as the director of “The Ten”, “Wet Hot American Summer” and “Stella”, you should really learn his name.

Anyway, for his first big studio flick, he’s recruited such people as Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jane Lynch, Bobb’e J. Thompson and Elizabeth Banks to star in his film “Role Models.” Here’s the official synopsis:

Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott star in Role Models as Danny and Wheeler, two salesmen who trash a company truck on an energy drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 service hours with a mentorship program. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn’t look half bad.

Surrounded by annoying do-gooders, Danny struggles with his every neurotic impulse to guide Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) through the trials of becoming a man. Unfortunately, the guy just dumped by his girlfriend (Elizabeth Banks) has only sarcasm to offer a bashful 16-year-old obsessed with medieval role play.

Meanwhile, charming Wheeler tries to trade in an addiction to partying and women to assist a fifth-grader named Ronnie (Bobb’e J. Thompson) in redirecting his foul-mouthed ways. It would probably help if Ronnie’s new mentor wasn’t an overgrown adolescent whose idea of quality time includes keggers in Venice Beach.

Once the center’s ex-con director (Jane Lynch) gives them an ultimatum, Danny and Wheeler are forced to tailor their brand of immature wisdom to their charges. And if they can just make it through probation without getting thrown in jail, the world’s worst role models will prove that, sometimes, it takes a village idiot to raise a child.

Anyhow, I did the press day earlier today and in the next week or two you can expect video interviews with director David Wain, Jane Lynch and Seann William Scott. Until then…enjoy the clips Universal has given me.
