Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis And More Will Be In The Tim And Eric Movie
The Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, which ran for three years on Adult Swim, was always more of a cult success than anything else-- your friends who were really into comedy loved it, while most everyone else either didn't get it or didn't know it existed. But the show also accumulated a lot of celebrity friends, many of the making cameo appearances over the years. And now that Tim and Eric have pulled it together to make a feature film, a lot of those celebrities will be coming back to lend their support.
As The Wrap reports, Zach Galifianakis, John C. Reilly, Will Ferrell, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton are all set for roles in the film, titled Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. Sadly, a rumor floating around that Harrison Ford would be showing up as well turned out not to be true.They started shooting the film on Friday, and Galifianakis has already shot his appearance, in which the producers admit "we got a little wet." Magnolia Pictures is distributing the project, though they're not entirely sure when.
Tim and Eric talk endearingly about the challenges of making their first film, while admitting "relative to other films, it's tiny, but to us it's the biggest thing we've ever done […] And the challenge is to fight against the professionalism and keep things loose." The plot, as the title promises, finds Tim & Eric handed a billion dollars to make a movie, and all the things that go wrong from there.
