‘High Road’ Trailer – Matt Walsh’s Directorial Debut Stars Tons of Comedic Talents

18 April 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] You may think you've never heard of Matt Walsh, but odds are, you've seen his work before. Walsh is probably best known as one of the founders of the Upright Citizens Brigade, and he's also appeared in supporting roles in tons of films (Elf, Bad Santa, Role Models, Mystery Team, Cyrus, every comedy Todd Phillips has ever done) and television shows (Childrens Hospital, Outsourced, Party Down, Human Giant, Reno 911!, The Daily Show). In short, while he's not quite as famous as some of his colleagues, it's safe to say he has a pretty solid comedy resume. Now Walsh is taking on a slightly different kind of role: director. His first feature is High Road, a stoner comedy featuring a bevy of well-known comedians. Watch the red band trailer after the jump. High Road revolves around a drug dealer/musician with a pregnant girlfriend who's forced to run when one of his deals goes bad. »
