Bert… I am your father!
On yesterday’s episode of 2 Bears 1 Cave Bert Kreischer joked about, “going to rehab for a few months,” before adding that we should all have more information on his impending absence from the podcast “tomorrow.” Well, tomorrow is here now and we finally know what he was referring to and it (unsurprisingly) doesn’t involve actual rehab. He’s off to shoot a movie for a few months.
Also revealed is that Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hammil was cast as Kreischer’s dad in the previously announced film adaption of his infamous, “Russian Mafia” aka “The Machine” story. But it doesn’t just end there. Kreischer will star as himself, 20 years after the story where he got tangled up with a Russian mafia takes place. Kreischer and his dad wind up kidnapped by those he had wronged all those years prior. It’s described as “The Hangover meets Midnight Run.”
No word on who is directing the film yet. But with this pairing up that we didn’t know we needed in our life, we’re already sold on this!

If you are keeping count, this will be the second film based on Kreishcer’s life as many might know the 2002 Ryan Reynolds film, Van Wilder is loosely based on Kreischer’s time in college.
And for those not familiar, here’s the Machine story.
