If I were Mike Judge, I’m not sure I’d be able to act like a normal person in public. I’d constantly be using my work to get special treatment.
“Excuse me, writer/director of Office Space coming through.” Or I’d just say things like, “Hi, you know the hit cartoons ‘Beavis and Butthead’ and ‘King of the Hill?’ Yeah, that was me. Now give me all the money in the register.”
Well, now he’ll have one more way to pick up women. His new comedy Extract has just landed a monster cast of funny people… and Ben Affleck.
Jason Bateman stars as a flower-extract factory owner going through a string of bad luck. His wife (Kristen Wiig from SNL) is cheating on him with a gigolo. Clifton Collins Jr. is a factory worker who loses a body part in an accident. Ben Affleck is his ambulance-chasing lawyer. Mila Kunis plays another factory worker.
I can’t wait for this movie. Hopefully it won’t be buried on a few screens before becoming a favorite on DVD like his other movies. Actually, don’t worry about it. Affleck would never let that happen.
You know, I pick on Ben, but he’s going to be huge again. You’ll see.
