When Joe Dirt first hit theaters all the way back in 2001, most people, fans and critics alike, assumed the film would quietly drift away and never be heard from again. That’s what happens to most comedies that don’t make a real box office impact, but in the years since, the flick has gained more and more of a cult following, to the point where it’s getting a sequel and damn near everyone can immediately recognize the protagonist by his hair.
That’s the first look we’ve gotten at Joe Dirt’s beautiful wig. The original flick may have ended with our hero updating to something a little more weird and contemporary, but it only makes sense that he’d be returned to his classic hairstyle. Nothing says white trash like a mullet that can’t be removed because it has fused with a poor bastard’s exposed brain.
As you can see in the above photo, the fine folks over at Happy Madison also gave us a new piece of information about the sequel. It will be called Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser. It will start filming this month in Louisiana, and it will be released next year on Crackle. That means you won’t have to pay to see it, but you will have to sit through some commercials in order to enjoy the presentation. Rough life, right?
Joe Dirt is a specific kind of movie for a specific kind of person. It’s clever dumb, for people who can watch something like this and appreciate it…
Former Saturday Night Live head writer Fred Wolf will star alongside David Spade in Joe Dirt 2. It’s unclear what other cast members will return, but I’m going to be seriously pissed if I don’t see Kid Rock, Christopher Walken, Jaime Pressly and Brittany Daniel. An Adam Beach cameo would be pretty sweet too as the immortal Kicking Wing.
Enthusiastic about Clue, case-of-the-week mysteries, the NBA and cookies at Disney World. Less enthusiastic about the pricing structure of cable, loud noises and Tuesdays.
