    I just heard Artie claim on his podcast that Jack Black was going to play him in an movie adaptation of Too Fat to Fish that he is getting paid 2 mil for. That can't be true can it?

    Of course not. Artie said it.

    He was joking, just not obviously to anyone but him. Nobody's going to make that book into a movie. Except maybe Troma.

    From 2009:
    “I’m in an interesting dilemma,” Lange admitted. “I’m thinking about taking a boat load of money and just saying, ‘Fuck it, do whatever you want. I could care less.’ … “For the right price, I would gladly go on Letterman and say ‘See Jack Black as me in this film!'”

    I would love to watch a scene where Artie stabs himself 19 times with a kitchen knife

    This reminds me of back when Howard kept rejecting scripts for Private Parts. To light a fire under his ass, the studio leaked that they were in negotiations with Jeff Goldblum and were going to have him play Howard. That would have been a disaster, so I'm sure it was just a bluff.
