Arnett goes Pro

If you saw Will Ferrell at the Golden Globes, you no doubt saw the giant 'fro he's sporting for his upcoming 70s basketball flick SEMI-PRO. That hairdo alone has me convinced this movie could be comedy gold. I'm a little more convinced this morning with news that Will Arnett, one of the funniest guys who isn't super famous yet, has joined the cast. Arnett will play a drunken sportscaster who works the ABA games that Ferrell's team (the Flint Tropics) plays in. Also cast in the film are Woody Harrelson and Andre Benjamin. The film was written by Scot Armstrong who co-wrote OLD SCHOOL and STARSKY & HUTCH. Arnett and Ferrell can be seen next in another sports comedy, the ice skating laffer BLADES OF GLORY, coming in March. Filming on SEMI-PRO is expected to begin next month in Los Angeles.

Extra Tidbit: Arnett is married to "Saturday Night Live" star Amy Poehler.

Yeah like the guy in the $7000 suit would really stoop to just being a sportscaster. Come On!

I love Arnett but I'm afraid much like a Norm MacDonald or Allen Covert he'll never be given a good script to really make him a star. He will go down in history more his greatness though.
