Teaser And Trailer For Nick Offerman Comedy Somebody Up There Likes Me
When the Emmy announcements were made earlier this month, there was an outcry across the web that Parks and Recreations's Nick Offerman was snubbed despite offering another season of impeccable comedy as mustachioed libertarian and puzzle-lover Ron Swanson. I'd argue the brand of humor Offerman does so brilliantly is too sly for Emmy folk to grasp. But while Jon Cryer of Two and Half Men got his 6th Emmy nod this year, he's never won the honor of a paper doll in his image.
This is the brand of bizarre fandom Offerman inspires, so it's fitting that he's opted to go an offbeat route in announcing the release of a comedy he produced called Somebody Up There Likes Me. In the video below he, Community star Alison Brie, and Offerman's wife and frequent co-star Megan Mullally (Party Down) share the good news about the film securing distribution, and when you can expect to see it, all while hitting their own individual bongs.
While Brie does co-star with Hollywood's wackiest weed-lovin' celebrity couple in the recently wrapped comedy Toy's House, she does not appear to have anything to do with Somebody Up There Likes Me. Still, her Community cache should help score the above vid some more views, and corresponding Facebook likes. If you "do" Facebook, you can "like" the comedy HERE.
As Offerman mumbles above, Tribeca Films has acquired the feature that premiered at the SXSW Festival earlier this year. Bob Byington, who made the controversial comedy Registered Sex Offender, wrote and directed Somebody Up There Likes Me, which centers on an awkward love triangle made up of Offerman, Keith Poulson, and Jess Weixler. Mullally and Kevin Corrigan co-star.
Somebody Up There Likes Me is coming to theaters and VOD in March 2013. Check out its festival trailer below:
