Futile and Stupid Gesture Trailer Charts the Rise of National Lampoon

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming biopic A Futile & Stupid Gesture, starring Will Forte as comedy wunderkind Doug Kenney. While this icon might not necessarily be a household name, he co-created the National Lampoon magazine, along with co-writing comedy classic movies Caddyshack and Animal House. Kenney was at the center of the 70's comedy counter-culture which gave birth to Saturday Night Live and a whole generation's way of looking at the world. The trailer hints that the movie will take quite a unique approach, with Will Forte playing Doug Kenney in the 1970s, and Martin Mull playing the "modern-day" Doug Kenney... even though he's been dead for 37 years.

The trailer begins with someone asking Martin Mull, in character as "modern-day" Doug, who is asked by his interviewer if he could introduce himself as, "the man who changed comedy, but couldn't change himself," which lead Mull to respond with,

Trailer for Netflix's National Lampoon Film 'A Futile & Stupid Gesture'

Netflix has launched an official trailer for a new film titled A Futile and Stupid Gesture, from director David Wain, who is already working with Netflix to bring you the "Wet Hot American Summer" series. The sort-of-doc film profiles Doug Kenney, the comedy wunderkind who co-created the "National Lampoon", Caddyshack, and Animal House. It premieres at the Sundance Film Festival and hits Netflix next January. One description explains: "In the 1970s and '80s, National Lampoon's success and influence creates a new media empire overseen in part by the brilliant and troubled Doug Kenney." This reminds me of the other National Lampoon documentary that played at Sundance, Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead. This is much more than just a doc as it features a full cast recreating many of the moments in Kenney's life. Will Forte plays Kenney, and the cast includes Emmy Rossum, Domhnall Gleeson, Seth Green, Natasha Lyonne, Annette O'Toole,

‘A Futile And Stupid Gesture’ Trailer: David Wain Explores National Lampoon

Earlier this year, Netflix unspooled “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” at the Sundance Film Festival, and in a matter of weeks, debuted the movie around the globe on the service. Next year, they’re doing with the same with another lengthily titled flick: “A Futile And Stupid Gesture.” And it’s packing a powerhouse of talent.

Directed by David Wain (“Wet Hot American Summer,” “Role Models“) and starring Will Forte, Martin Mull, Domhnall Gleeson, Matt Walsh, Joel McHale, and Emmy Rossum, the film dives into the early days of National Lampoon, the comedy magazine, that soon became a massive Hollywood brand.

‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’ Trailer: Will Forte Stars As Comedy Legend in David Wain’s Sundance-Bound Biopic

‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’ Trailer: Will Forte Stars As Comedy Legend in David Wain’s Sundance-Bound Biopic
It’s fitting that David Wain’s upcoming, Sundance-bound biopic “A Futile and Stupid Gesture” appears to ably — and amusingly — blend fact and fiction to serve up a unique slice of mostly-true goodness. The film, which will debut on Netflix next month, follows the real-life exploits of Doug Kenney (played by Will Forte, with Martin Mull stepping in to play an older version), “National Lampoon” co-founder and “Caddyshack” and “Animal House” screenwriter.

As Entertainment Weekly notes, “His comic seeds blossomed everywhere, and then…he was gone, a victim of his own excesses and inner demons.” (While Mull plays an older Kenney, he actually died back in 1980, at the age of 33.)

Actress Carly Chaikin may play a hacker on TV, but don’t expect to catch the Mr. Robot star dabbling in the dark web anytime soon.

William H. Macy on Defending Emmy Rossum's Fight for Equal Pay on Shameless: 'It's a No-Brainer'
When Emmy Rossum threatened to leave Shameless if she didn’t receive pay equal to that of her costar William H. Macy, he was nothing but supportive.

“It’s a no-brainer,” the actor recently told People Now. “It’s just sort of obvious. Emmy is in most of the scenes, she works harder than anybody else, she’s a brilliant actress. She’s the glue of the cast.”

Last year, Rossum, 31, made headlines when she refused to sign on for the Showtime drama’s eighth season unless she was offered more than Macy to make up for the seven years she was paid significantly less.

Emmy Rossum to Portray Mysterious Hollywood Icon Angelyne in Limited Series

Rossum in “Shameless

Emmy Rossum is bringing a mysterious Hollywood legend’s story to the small screen. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the “Shameless” star will topline a limited series about Angelyne, the child of Holocaust survivors who “reinvented herself as a blonde bombshell, famous simply for being famous, by appearing on billboards in Los Angeles and driving a pink Cadillac around Hollywood.”

The project is based on THR writer Gary Baum’s recent investigative profile on Angelyne, whose real name is Renee Goldberg. Rossum is executive producing the limited series with her husband, “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail. Baum will serve as a consultant on the drama, which is being shopped around to cablers and streamers.

“I have always been fascinated by the enigma that is Angelyne,” Rossum explained. “At a young age, I can vividly remember staring up at her on a billboard above me and wondering, ‘Who is that woman?

Sam Esmail Says Angelyne Limited Series Will Be “Respectful” and “Sensitive”
Last year, THR ran an investigative story by Gary Baum about Angelyne, a mysterious LA icon whose real name and true story were until then unknown. For those who were beguiled by Angelyne over the years, it was a fascinating portrayal of the life of a woman who has always been so careful about crafting her image. Because of that, Angelyne reportedly wasn't very happy with the story. But now, according to THR, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail is making a limited series based on their report, and starring his wife Emmy Rossum.
