    The bald guy was in Total Recall, Starship Troopers and Terminator 2. No idea who the other douchebag is.

    Great play, but this guy does a Jack Black impression for 2 hours. He must really love Tenacious D, he copies that version of him to a tee.

    Is this the same one Howard announced he was making based on Bill Kinison's book "Brother Sam"?

    I remember when I was a kid the token Hollywood fatass was someone like John Candy. Nowadays we seem to have a much lower caliber (this Josh guy, Jack Black or that turd from Superbad).

    Stern setting on the rights through the 90's ruined it, this movie should have been made back then. Having said that, it could be good, and mabye introduce a new generation of fans to Kinison, so I'm all for it. I just don't know if his humor will seem as original or shocking to people today, but if they don't focus on stand up and get into the nitty gritty of his upbringing, huckster minister (allegedly) father, first marriage, and drug abuse, it could stand on its own.

    I wonder who's going to play Howard.

    I mean, can they make a biopic without Howard?

    Wow the only film to get Woz and Jobs right was Pirates of Silicon Valley.

    Just because He is FAT now doesn't mean he was fat 30 or even 20 years ago..:facepalm:

    No. Howard let his movie rights to the book lapse because, like every other one of his production company's movie and film projects other than Son of a Beach (which only got to the screen because Tim Stack was actually running that show), he couldn't get it off the ground.

    It will be funny if this movie becomes a box office success and Howard doesn't receive a dime.

    "Robin, it was my idea to do a biopic on Sam Kinison. It is another thing Hollywood stole from me. I am going to sue. No one would have come up with that idea if I didn't think of it 20 years ago."

    Howard claimed that no one wanted to make it because it was too soon after his death. My guess is the reality is that no studio wanted to make it with him.

    That's why it's actually being made. Howard's projects are all fantasies and bullshit.
