Bana does comedy?

We've seen Eric Bana's intensity in movies like MUNICH, BLACK HAWK DOWN and that one where he turned green, but can he also bring the funny? He should -- after all, he started out Down Under on sketch shows like FULL FRONTAL and ERIC. And hey, CHOPPER was sort of a comedy.

Now CHUD hears that Bana's getting into the funny business with Hollywood's current go-to guys: Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen. The as-yet-untitled project, which Apatow describes as a hilarious drama about stand-up comics, also features Adam Sandler.

What's more, CHUD is saying that Apatow wants Bana for the role of Leslie Mann's boyfriend in the flick. Is this guy a masochist or what? Pairing your real-life wife with the guy who nearly out-abdominaled Brad Pitt in TROY is a gutsy move.

Bana will next be seen in THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE and JJ Abrams' STAR TREK, which I presume will not be intentional comedies.
Extra Tidbit: Bana gained popularity thanks to impressions of guys like Tom Cruise, Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. And Gladiators.

I find this especially funny because Bana is mentioned in KNOCKED UP as the only reason Jewish guys get laid, or something to that effect.

Now I know I'll see this thing when it comes out! I had a sneaking suspicion I would anyway, but this seals the deal.

I'm always happy to see Bana in anything. The guy is one of the most underrated actors out there imho.

Best news of the month for sure.

Bana is hilarious, I don't know why he's been stuck in dramas in America, he's much closer to being the new Dustin Hoffman than a new Harrison Ford. He's probably been typecast because of he's body but that's been a huge mistake producers have made.

Hopefully this will relaunch Eric's carrer and show he's versatility

He's hilarious

Go track down a clip of Bana on Jay Leno. The man is absolutely crackin'. Does a spot-on Brad Pitt impersonation as well.
