    Probably would have tried to become a "serious actor" in the 2000s.

    He was great, but you can tell by the time beverly hills ninja came out it his career was going down. The fat, dumb guy, act was getting old and he would have burned out by early 2000s, around the sametime sandlers movies started to be crappy.

    CF was naturally funny and totally fearless. He was the real deal.

    He was in such a bad way when he went out. I once saw a death picture of him I've tried for years to unsee. :eek:

    But I bet he wouldn't have been one of those fat guys who slimmed down and instantly became un-funny (Rogen, Zach G, Newman from Seinfeld, Flounder from Animal House).

    I like to think he would have stayed true to his huge, funny self.

    He was going to play Fatty Arbuckle in a movie to take on his first dramatic role. Sucks he died. Chris was talented.

    Didn't know that! Man, that would have been awesome. Fatty's tragic story has never been done justice.

    Yeah I didn't know who he was, but I remember reading about him after a documentary about Chris and his almost role as fatty. Pretty crazy stuff with Arbuckle.

    A Fatty Arbuckle biopic (unfilmed)
    The role:
    Fatty Arbuckle

    In 1997, Chris Farley began planning his first dramatic film, a biopic about silent film star Fatty Arbuckle, a heavyset actor who was falsely accused of manslaughter and rape in a highly-publicized trial before dying young of a heart attack. Farley met with playwright David Mamet, who agreed to write the movie. Farley’s manager Bernie Brillstein remembers meeting with Mamet in The Chris Farley Show:

    “Chris came to the meeting at a little restaurant down in the Village, and he was the good Chris, the well-behaved Chris, because he couldn’t believe that David Mamet even wanted to meet him. Mamet loved him. It was a great meeting. He said yes before we got up from the table, and he wrote it for Chris. To this day, I know that it would have changed his career.”

    Farley’s brother Tom remembers, “As soon as he heard little bits and pieces about Arbuckle’s life, he said, ‘This is me.’ It was the whole idea that nobody understands the real person underneath. ‘I’m going to tell them about the real Fatty Arbuckle, and maybe they’ll understand the real Chris Farley.'” The project got slowed down by Hollywood’s sluggish development process and, sadly, never came together before Chris Farley passed away.
