Hey comedy fans, perhaps you remember reading or hearing a rumor about comedian TJ Miller and his audition this summer for SNL. Or the "baloney and fibs," as Miller tells me. When I saw him a day or two after his audition, he said he would be more than OK getting over a rejection because he had plenty of projects in his comedy pipeline. Miller tells me today: "I just got a part in the next Mike Judge film, EXTRACT, with Jason
Bateman, Mila Kunis, Ben Affleck, Kristin Wiig and Gene Simmons. Word
up." Indeed. Judge has made comedy classics already out of Office Space and Idiocracy.
The Chicago comedian who helped frame the madness of Cloverfield as Hud and stole scenes in TV’s Carpoolers as Marmaduke also has parts in two other films coming up. He’ll play Stainer in the upcoming comedy, She’s Out of My League, and also has a part in next spring’s The Goods: The Don Ready Story, directed by Neal Brennan and starring Jeremy Piven, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle and more. And he’ll be on tour doing stand-up in November.
