Hope Katrina victims make it through this...
They are going to do a screening of the new movie "The Man" with Eugene Levy and Samuel L. Jackson at the Astrodome and other large venues for all the victims. For the love of God...please do not let this movie totally suck!
Pushing "The Man" in the wake of Katrina is "one of the more difficult things I've had to do," Levy told AP Television News, noting that he's been glued to TV coverage. "We've had to go out and we have to talk about this thing. We have to try and be positive about the movie ... But, at the same time, it seems like the most bizarre thing in the world to do."
"The Man," which opens Friday, casts Levy as andental-supply salesman who is sucked into a sting operation by a maverick federal agent played by Jackson.
"He's a very smart comedian," Jackson said of Levy. "I'm a very smart actor. I know enough about comedy to stay out of his way when it's time for him to do his thing. He's smart enough to stay out of my way when it's time for me to do my thing. And it works very well."
Producer Robert N. Fried said he hopes the film will work on a very large screen — to the thousands of Katrina victims housed in the Houston Astrodome."There are logistical issues, ratings issues, this is PG-13," said Fried. "But we're gonna try to do that."
