James Gunn’s been shooting a new superhero flick he wrote and directed — and helping out with the flick as his assistant is one of our very own Pajibans Justin, who’s twats you should be atwitter over. When his girlfriend Liv Tyler succumbs to the sway of drugs, Rainn Wilson puts on a superhero suit and picks up a fucking pipe wrench and decides to seek retribution. I’ve been keeping tabs through Justin’s twooshes (@BuckJHamstein) and let’s just say there are bunnies and guys on fire and people getting punched in the face and that’s just the craft services table. The premise of a superhero with no actual powers is a good one, and in James Gunn’s able hands it should turn out pretty damn good. And the casting is no exception.
This film just keeps adding on more and more radical people, which can only truly reach its apex with the casting of me. Kevin Bacon plays the drug dealer whose sweet candy Liv Tyler desires. Ellen Page plays a sociopath who becomes Rainn Wilson’s sidekick. But there’s more!
Linda Cardellini plays Rainn Wilson’s possible love interest — with a wife I don’t know how that’s gonna work out but fuck it, bring on the L.C. and save her from more Grandma’s Boy humiliation. Andre Royo, Bubbles from “The Wire,” is taking on a role written specifically for him. Gunn’s brother Sean, along with a few other Troma regulars, are joining the ranks — including a cameo from Lloyd Kaufmann himself! And what’s been spiking up the ol’ interwebs tonight — Nathan Fillion!
Who needs emo Spidey swingdancing with Malkovich? We’ve got Dwight Schrute beating the Footloose for hooking Arwyn on crank. And somehow Captain Hammer and Bubbles are involved?
The only way this could get better is if NPH entered the picture. Riding me wearing a unicorn horn. Make it happen, Justin!
