Super Troopers 2 adds Rob Lowe to the cast

09.15.2016

Many thought it wouldn’t happen. All hope was lost, as people locked themselves in dark rooms, never to be seen again. But the light has entered their lives again. The fire of life has been rekindled. Yes, SUPER TROOPERS 2 is coming, and as this new casting news proves, the boys aren’t returning alone.

Deadline reports that none other than PARKS AND REC star and recent Comedy Central roastee Rob Lowe will be joining the troopers as Mayor Guy Le Franc. I like to call him Guy With Tom Hanks DA VINCI CODE Hair. You can see what I mean in the pic above!

Lowe will play “a former hockey player and the current mayor of a Quebec Canadian border town.” Lowe joins the film that almost never was, until an Indiegogo campaign gave the film more than enough funding to complete the sequel to the cult 2001 comedy hit.

I have been put on a cross numerous times because I simply don’t care for the first SUPER TROOPERS movie. It’s not bad or unfunny, it just doesn’t make a big blip on my radar. I’ve seen it twice and it just doesn’t get me. But clearly a lot of people love it, so I guess I’m in the loser group, which is totally okay. I don't mind getting eggs thrown at me...which happens often.

The sequel will hit probably sometime in 2017.

Fool me once (Dumb and Dumber to), Fool me twice (Anchorman 2), Fool me thrice (Zoolander 2),...ahh fuck it I'm still in I never learn lol. I cannot fucking wait. They filmed the first once where I lived. I used to eat every few days at the cafe they filmed at. Sadly that place no longer exists.

That's the dream of crowdfunding... If you overachieve, you can get Rob Lowe...

Looking forward to this even though I am relatively certain they will recycle the jokes from the original and it will suck like all comedy sequels. I NEVER LEARN.

Totally forgot this was a thing

It was exciting at first but it's taking so long that I think it's time has passed... It won't be nearly as funny as the first one, if any late sequel has taught us.

On one hand, that's awesome they got Lowe. On the other, there's little chance (if not no way) the sequel will top the first. Comedy sequels as of late just haven't been able to do the trick. Anchorman 2, Zoolander 2, Dumb and Dumber To, need I go on....

They'll never top the original

But here's hoping it's more Beerfest and less Club Dread
