Craig Robinson will be Lionsgate's Anti-Christ

03.30.2011

I met Craig Robinson once. It was at a press junket for HOT TUB TIME MACHINE and at the tail end of the event he was wearing a wig, sunglasses and singing a cover of Jesse's Girl on stage. He was a very jovial, nice dude as you might expect and therefore it's a bit hard to see him in this newest role, as the most evil man on earth.

Craig Robinson has joined the cast of the sure-to-be-protested RAPTUREPALOOZA, a developing comedy from Lionsgate. And from my hints above, you might guess who he's playing in the end times scenario. From Deadline:

"The comedy takes place a year after a religious apocalypse strips away half the world's population. Ben and Lindsey try to reestablishing their sandwich cart business. Beyond the occasional blood rainstorm and talking locusts that surface occasionally, the sandwich sellers have a new problem: the Anti-Christ (Robinson) decides he wants to take Lindsey as his bride."

Well since JAY AND SETH VS. THE APOCALYPSE seems to be delayed indefinitely, I guess we'll have to find our end of the world laughs elsewhere. I'm curious to see who else will end up attached to this.

Got to see this guy at The Improv a couple years ago and he's a blast (also a very talented musician). This could be a pretty funny film, and Robinson as the anti-christ sounds amusing and even unexpected. Look forward to seeing this develop.

The Anti-Christ . . .

. . . would that be who he signed a contract w/ to keep on getting so much work playing the same guy in everything he's in? Oh wait, in Eastbound he played the heavier, baseball playing version of said guy. You go, Craig!

that was bad casting, as he looked like he'd never swung a bat, just as Danny McBride has the motion of a 6 year old retarded girl, but can hit 100mph on the gun

It could be a 2 Hour Movie of him dancing and smiling...and I'd see it.

Craig Robinson is the man. He was hilarious in "The Hot Tub Time Machine" and is one of the best parts of "The Office".

He is an actor that I hope gets more work in the future.
