Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott in Role Models

MTV has premiered the new trailer for the upcoming comedy Role Models, which stars Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott as two energy drink salesmen who get in a bit of trouble and end up serving community service. Their service to the community turns out to be the always life-changing, inspirational yet comical task of mentoring two trouble younglings. The two trouble youths in this particular instance are a role playing outcast, played by Superbad’s Christopher Mintz-Plasse and a devilish little tyke, played by Nick Nervies. It is a cliche-ridden, canned comedy that smells like everything else like it that we’ve seen lately, but when you watch the trailer you may be surprised, as I was, to find out that it actually look pretty funny. Just click below to be taken to the trailer.

The reason this one looks to be rather funny is the presence of Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, who are funny on their own. Add in McLovin’ and we’ve got ourselves a party. Think Drillbit Taylor, only a lot funnier.

Role Models is directed by David Wain, who previously brought you Wet Hot American Summer, yet another reason to be optimistic about this film. It will hit theaters on November 14th.

What do you think of the first trailer for Role Models?
