Newswire: Learn how Fat Mike got into punk in this exclusive clip from A Fat Wreck

The new documentary A Fat Wreck documents the rise of Fat Wreck Chords, the label run by Nofx frontman “Fat Mike” Burkett and his ex-wife Erin Burkett, and how the pair made it one of the most successful punk labels of the past 20 years. While A Fat Wreck features mini-profiles on some Fat‘s best known bands, this clip—premiering exclusively on The A.V. Club—tells the tale of how Fat Mike found punk rock all those years ago. In the clip, Fat Mike credits Joe Escalante of The Vandals fame as being his spiritual shepherd, leading him to dive headfirst into the scene that spoke to him.

A Fat Wreck is available now on DVD and on streaming services.

Jason Segel Knows The Other F Word

Jason Segel Knows The Other F Word
Here’s a scripting team-up we’re not sure many could have predicted: Forgetting Sarah Marshall / The Muppets co-writer / star Jason Segel and Iron Man 3 scribbler Drew Pearce have hatched a deal to adapt Andrea Blaugrund Nevin’s 2011 documentary The Other F Word into a new film for Fox.The doc talked to aging punk rockers (including the likes of Tony Adolescent, Jim Lindberg, Joe Escalante, Flea, Lars Friedriksen and skateboard legend Tony Hawk) about how Lindberg’s life in particular changed from being a raging anti-authoritarian to taking on the biggest challenge: becoming a dad.Nothing is known about the film’s plot, though given Segel is starring, we figure it’ll follow him as a bloke trying to figure out fatherhood for the first time as he reconciles it with his past.

Jason Segel to Turn The Other F Word Into a Feature Comedy

Jason Segel to Turn The Other F Word Into a Feature Comedy
Jason Segel is set to turn the 2011 documentary The Other F Word into a feature comedy for 20th Century Fox, selling the pitch alongside co-writer and executive producer Drew Pearce.

Andrea Blaugrund directed the original documentary, which followed a group of aging punk rockers as they transitioned into parenthood. Jason Segel will star as one such dad. And while the documentary featured plenty of high profile rockers, including Art Alexakis, Flea, and Lars Frederiksen, it is unclear if they will return for cameos, but it is very likely.

There is no production start date set for The Other F Word's comedy adaptation.

The Other F Word was released November 2nd, 2011 and stars Tony Adolescent, Art Alexakis, Rob Chaos, Chris De Wolfe, Joe Escalante, Flea, Lars Frederiksen, Josh Freese. The film is directed by Andrea Blaugrund.
