Broken Lizard just played Slamdance with their Slammin’ Salmon, and now The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood reporting that the troupe has added a few more names to the cast list for their next project.
Brit Morgan, who played the totally gorgeous, animal crazy roommate on “The Middle Man,” and Joshua Lawson, who…hasn’t been in anything really…will be joining a cast list that already includes Jane Seymour, Olivia Munn, and Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz as his dread-locked self.
Freeloaders is a story of a group of friends who mooch off of a famous rock star until he decides to sell his mansion and kick them all out. Hilarity then, apparently, ensues.
Time for me to come clean: I have no idea how Broken Lizard is involved in this film. It’s being directed by first-timer Dan Rosen who wrote the script with first-time writer Dave Gibbs. None of the Broken Lizard crew is listed in the cast or as producers according to IMDB, except for Julia Dray and Richard Perello who have produced all of their movies since Super Troopers.
Apparently, they’ll be making a cameo, but this Broken Lizard film doesn’t sound like it has too much that’s Broken Lizard-y about it so far. However, I’m totally open to being corrected on that front. And Olivia Munn might sell me on seeing it more than Broken Lizard could.
What do you think? Interested in a Broken Lizard film that doesn’t have much Broken Lizard in it? Shouldn’t “The Middle Man” be talked about more? Wasn’t it a funny show? Too quirky, maybe, but it was really good.
