As reported earlier, a movie based on the on-line internet magazine, The Spoof, is in the works. Hollywood producer Jack Offsburgh has announced the stellar cast for this 2008 summer blockbuster and potential Academy Award Winning movie.
The main character, editor Mark Lowton, will be played by Jim Carrey. Jim has said that he plans on growing a handlebar mustache and drinking a lot of beer to prepare for his role. Mark Lowton's brother Paul, generally silent in the background at the magazine, will be played by Will Ferrell.
In the movie, Mark and Paul invite their writers to a first annual Spoof Alaskan Cruise. They will be traveling to Juneau to meet in person for the first time and to celebrate the wedding of Alaskan Gnarly Eric to Cal's sister.
Tragedy occurs, however, when the Corrupt Bastards hijack the ship and threaten to kill the writers for making fun of them and their puppet president, George Bush (played by Bozo the Clown). Dick Cheney, secret leader of the Corrupt Bastards, is played by Gene Hackman (who is also bald and generally makes 300 movies a year).
Some of the top writers, in numbers of stories written and their character's importance to the film, have been cast as follows:
Queen Mudder (most posted stories all time)...Rachel McAdams (The Queen insisted on casting approval for this choice as Rachel is talented, funny, currently an "A" list actress with a good track record, and "really hot"... even though she is a little younger than the Queen.)
Jalapenoman...Brad Pitt (though surgery will be required for Pitt as he is not as handsome as The J-man and is penis is not as large-being from Texas, Jalapenoman uses one of the Goodyear Blimp sized condoms. Angelina Jolie expresses happiness and elation when hearing of the upcoming "male enhancement")
Gnarly Eric...Rob Morrow (former star of Northern Exposure who got used to the cold when filming that show and should be prepared for his Alaska filming)
Other cast members include:
Monkey Woods...Roddie McDowell, of course!
Moose & Squirrel...Rocky and Bullwinkle
Buck E. Filbert...Richard Simmons (makes sense to me!)
Cal Jennings...Gary Coleman or Emmanuel Lewis
Music Guy and his forum twin...Vikki Carr (in a dual role)
Fergus...Michael Caine (who usually plays the token European and does also 300 movies a year, though not usually the same ones as Hackman)
Nickfun...Lucy Liu (Nick used to write under the name of Asai Babe)
King David, Willis Rodney, President Bush, and Douglas Salgoud...(probably won't appear in the movie because they haven't appeared on the magazine in months)
Ethan, our resident Ron Paul supporter...Britney Spears Vagina (she's got to be in our movie somewhere, so why not play a "p u s s y?")
Shaun Ferguson...one of the boys from "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?"
Jean La Fete...Dean Martin (so what if he's dead! This is Hollywood!)
Gail Farrely (spoof chick)...one of the Farrely brothers
Casting for other Spoof writers is still going on at press time and will be updated when the information is available.
