Tucker Max is probably one of the rudest pricks Iâ€™ve ever spoken to â€“ but then, heâ€™s made a name for himself by being a sexist asshole, so power to him. It pays to be a shit, I guess.
Max mentioned on his blog today that heâ€™s as happy-as-a-pig-in-mud about â€œGilmore Girlsâ€ star Matt Czuchry being cast as him in the film version of the jackassâ€™s popular book â€œI hope they serve beer in hellâ€.
â€˜â€™Quite frankly, I could not be more happy with Matt Czuchry; as an actor to play me, as an employee to work for me, as an artist to collaborate with, and just as a person to be around. I am not sure I could have devised a better person to fit all those roles than the actual person that Matt Czuchry isâ€™â€™, said the author.
â€˜â€™Matt is going to do such a good job, he’ll probably end up being a “better” Tucker Max in this movie than I am in real life. People are going to either know Tucker Max as him, or they will meet me and be upset that I’m not as “Tucker” in real life as Czuchry is in the movie.â€™â€™
Based on Tucker Max’s real life escapades, the story revolves around an impromptu trip he takes to celebrate his friend’s bachelor party. He convinces his friend to lie to his fiancÃ©e in order to take the trip, gets him into trouble then abandons him in order to pursue a hilarious carnal interest. Disinvited to the wedding, and wanting a way back in, he must find a way to balance his narcissism with the demands of friendship.
The film will also star Jesse Bradford (â€œSwimfanâ€), Geoff Stults (â€œOctober Roadâ€), Keri-Lynn Pratt (â€œJack & Bobbyâ€) and Denise QuiÃ±ones (â€œSmallvilleâ€).
Bob Gosse (“Niagara, Niagara,” “Julie Johnson”) directs with Tucker Max and Nils Parker serving as screenwriters adapting from Max’s book. The film is produced by Darko’s Richard Kelly, Sean McKittrick and Ted Hamm along with Max and his partner Parker’s Rudius Films.
