MacGruber – Poster

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2010


Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live’s clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber.

In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job.

Assembling an elite team of experts—Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)—MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.

Check out the trailer.

Directed by Jorma Taccone and starring Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Powers Boothe, Maya Rudolph and Val Kilmer.

Due out on 21st May 2010.

JGL hosted last weeks SNL and his opening monologue included the Make ’em Laugh piece from Singin’ in the Rain.

I think he nails it.

MacGruber heading to the big screen.

Posted by LiveFor on July 8, 2009

Another Saturday Night Live skit has found its way to the big screen. According to Production Weekly, Jorma Taccone (Lonely Island, Land of the Lost) will direct the MacGruber film.

Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer are in talks to star in the spoof of MacGyver.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig are reprising their roles from the skits for the Paramount and Relativity Media production.

The MacGruber sketches starred Forte as MacGyver’s son with Wiig as an assistant who always find themselves, along with that week’s guest star, in a control room with a ticking bomb about to go off. MacGruber gets sidelined by personal issues, and the bomb goes off.

Forte and Taccone wrote the parodies with John Solomon. The trio wrote the feature script, which takes the story in a completely different direction from the skits yet remains strangely familiar: The legendary, much decorated MacGruber is pulled out of retirement as a monk in Ecuador by a colonel, who needs him once more to fight on behalf of his country. This time the mission involves going up against the evil Cunth, who has a nuclear warhead; the mission is personal because Cunth killed MacGruber’s bride.

The movie version would see Phillippe playing Piper, an Army officer forced to pair up with a reluctant MacGruber. Kilmer would be Cunth.

MacGruber movie is fast-tracked and at this stage looks like it could make it to the screen before a MacGyver movie, which is in development at New Line.

Production will begin next month in New Mexico.

I was a fan of McGyver, but never saw much of MacGruber. Are you excited to see a MacGruber film? Will it work? Cunth! What a name.

Here is what Richard Dean Anderson thinks of the character.

Mark Wahlberg wants slap a guy in the big nose

Posted by LiveFor on October 19, 2008

Saturday Night Live recently had a sketch where they took the piss out of Mark Wahlberg talking to plants in The Happening. In the sketch they have Mark talking to animals (the below interview shows the sketch). In this interview they ask Mark what he thought of the sketch (to be fair the bloke did sound like Wahlberg.

He starts of with,”When I see that kid, I’m going to crack that big ****ing nose of his. Then I’m going to tell him, ‘say hi to your mother for me’…I’m going to go down to 30 Rock…and I’m going to slap him in the big nose…I guaran-****ing-tee you.”
