Josh Gad (“Book of Mormon”, “jOBS”) will play late comic Sam Kinson in a biopic from “Borat” director Larry Charles.

According to Deadline, the Rich Wilkes (“xXx”) written script fixes on the non-controversial life of a preacher turned comic who, the brass promise, will be powerfully brought to life by chameleon Gad.

Yep, OK…Gad’s definitely showing promise these days, and seemingly does have the ability to transmorph into different characters, but Charles? Now he’s the one I think the slightly murky cloud hangs over. He’s done a lot of great comedy, like “Seinfeld”, but his film work consists of a bunch of fairly forgettable Sacha Baron-Cohen fodder… is he made for this? I dunno.

Also, Rich Wilkes on screenplay duty?

Where’s Milos Forman and writing duo Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski when a film needs ‘em?
