I’m very excited to announce that Jason Woliner and I have sold 3 movies to Judd Apatow and Universal! I am attached to star and Jason will direct.
One idea is tentatively titled “Let’s Do This” and is a road movie about two guys that work for a motivational speaking company.
Another idea is about two disgraced astronauts who have to go back to space to clear their names.
And the other idea is a movie based around Randy, my character from “Funny People.”
We’re currently working on all three ideas now and haven’t decided which we will go with first.
Needless to say, we are very excited to be working with Judd on these projects. Unfortunately, this does however put Jason and I’s plan to remake Short Circuit 2 (with myself playing the Michael McKean role in a revolutionary new makeup technique called “peachface”) on hold indefinitely.
Bob Powers #7: Happy You Didn't Watch Her Stuff Day!
You look up, then take off your headphones. That semi-stranger seems mad.
Then you look down at where her laptop and bag used to be. And her chosen armchair, which is still in the same spot, but has a few sword slashes torn through its upholstery and is on fire.
“I asked you to watch my stuff for two seconds.”
She was gone for longer than two seconds.
Probably more like…well, if you’re a minute and thirty-seven seconds into the YouTube video, then…
“What the hell happened?”
You really take in your surroundings now. The floor around you has a lot of muddy hoofprints on it. The barista is gone. And someone smashed in the glass case of foods up front, but the only treats missing are the baklava and the oat mix.
You turn back to the irate semi-stranger.
“There have been Cossacks in the neighborhood lately, and—“
“Son of a bitch!”
The semi-stranger reaches into her purse for an old flintlock pistol. She checks the barrel, cocks the hammer, and stalks out of the coffeehouse. Then she runs down the sidewalk, south, in the direction of all the shouting.
