TJ Miller lands a leading role in road trip comedy Road to Nardo

I'm sure you might be asking right about now, who is TJ Miller? What's the ROAD TO NARDO? Fair questions, and I'll answer them promptly.

Miller is that guy, on the right, and also "that guy," an up and coming comic actor that I know you've probably seen in something recently. He got his start as Hud in CLOVERFIELD (the guy holding the camera the whole time, so he didn't get a ton of screen time), but also has shown up in EXTRACT, SHE'S OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE and UNSTOPPABLE.

But now he's landed a leading role in the comedy ROAD TO NARDO, a film that's the directorial debut of Scot Armstrong, who previously wrote OLD SCHOOL and THE HANGOVER PART II.

It's a road trip film where Miller will play "a fast-talking and slobby guy in his 20s who lives to gamble, drink and hook-up." He's one of two roommates who discover their friend is naked and stranded in Mexico, and naturally, they must save him.

We haven't seen a road trip comedy in a little while, so it's no surprise a new one will be rolling along shortly. Does Miller have what it takes to be a great leading comic actor? Is that even allowed for those who haven't been molded by Judd Apatow?

Extra Tidbit: I wish that another SHE'S OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE star would start getting bigger roles, Alice Eve. She should have been Emma Frost in FIRST CLASS.

No road trip comedies?

Was Due Date not a road trip comedy? Also, I like TJ Miller, his delivery is amazing.

don't need to know who he is

Miller is hilarious. Been a fan of his stand up for years and he was in one of the most underrated comedies of the past decade, She's Out of My League and was absolutely hysterical in it.

Very much looking forward to anything more from him, especially in bigger comedic roles. One of the funniest newcomers to the movie world.

Speaking of Apatow, he had a pretty funny cameo in "Get Him to the Greek."

TJ MIller

I knew him as "that guy" from "that film" till I saw his stand-up on Conan. His bit on the DMV was hysterical. His appearances on Doug Benson's podcast Doug Loves Movies showcase his comedic chops as well. I hope this works out.

You are right. She would have made the better choice. All I saw was Betty Draper in "X-Men: First Class".
