this is a preview for a new movie called Religulous with Bill Maher (real time with bill maher, politically incorrect) directed by Larry Charles (Seinfeld writer, Borat director, and all around badass) about religion. looks pretty awesome.
well, it opens tomorrow (limited release) and i just found out about it yesterday!
i’m amazed i haven’t heard anything about it before
it stars tea leoni (bad boys, fun with dick and jane), ben kingsly (sexy beast, schindler’s list), luke wilson (the royal tenenbaums, legally blonde), and bill pullman (independence day, lost highway) and it was directed by the guy that did rounders (the best poker movie ever made).
has anyone heard about this movie “The Grand” yet?
i’m excited, and here’s why:
it’s about poker.
it’s mostly improvised.
it has an unreal cast:
Judy Greer (Kitty from Arrested Development)
Mike Epps (Next Friday, How High)
Cheryl Hines (Mrs. David from Curb Your Enthusiasm)
Richard Kind (Spin City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Scrubs, Strangers with Candy)
Michael McKean (Spinal Tap, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, Primetime Glick)
Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Anchorman)
Hank Azaria (Moe, Wiggum, Apu, Comic Book Guy, Cletus, Proffessor Frink, etc. from The Simpsons)
not to mention some of the best poker players in the world:
Phil Hellmuth Jr
