The following news will either make you excited with anticipation or cringe with disgust..or I guess a third option where you have no strong feelings one way or the other is also possible.
Tim and Eric are making a feature length movie.
While that sinks in let me tell you about some of the stars that have already signed on to be in it: Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia (the Orange Juice guy), Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, and William Atherton.
The “plot” (and I use that in the loosest possible way) will be about Tim and Eric being given one billion dollars and their attempt to make a move with it. There will probably be some kind of antagonist (possibly Dr. Steve Brule), or literally it could be 90 minutes of Tim and Eric gags.
If you have ever seen an episode of the show you should know what you are getting into.
Eric Werheim is already talking Oscar buzz about the movie “As principal shooting begins on a film that will change American comedy…I just hope that the Academy is watching and they get on this boat early, because it’s been a while since the Academy awarded the Best Picture Oscar to a comedy.”
That is true, I distinctly remember a complete lack of comedy at this years Oscars…but then again that could have been the hosts.
