According to The Wrap, Heidecker and Wareheim have teamed up with production companies Funny or Die, Gary Sanchez Productions and their own Abso Lutely Productions to create “Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie,” which starts principle photography on Friday. Even if you haven’t heard of the two title leads, you probably have heard of their film’s guest stars: Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, Robert Loggia and William Atherton.
All of them except for the latter two have appeared on the show before, and there is nothing we would love more than for them to return to the film as our favorite of their “Tim and Eric” characters. After the jump we give you a quick refresher on everyone from Steve Brule to The Snuggler.
[Editor’s Note: The videos you’re about to watch are insanely bizarre and potentially of the NSFW variety. Proceed with caution!]
Despite how much we love Zach Galifianakis’ absolutely real Absolut vodka commercial he made with Heidecker and Wareheim, our favorite of Galifianakis’ characters is hands down The Snuggler, who can somehow snuggle you to health even if you’re dying in the woods.
There’s no way Will Ferrell can be in this film and not play Heidecker’s character Steve Mahanahan’s father, Donald Mahanahan. He runs Donald’s Original Child Clown Outlet where he, you know, produces quality clowns. From his body. With his clown-breeding women. The usual.
John C. Reilly
He’s Steve Brule! Whether’s he’s headed to a wine tasting or explaining body odor, Brule has a very specific set of rules that we sit on the edge of our seats anticipating week after week after week.
Is there a place in “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” for Jeff Goldblum, the spokesman for the miracle wonder drug WaitMate? Of course there is. Will we have any idea what he’s saying? Absolutely not.
There is nothing Will Forte could possibly do in this film than continue his trend of awesome with his children’s talk show “Fortin’ With Will” where he deals with some serious daddy issues and involuntary releases of urine. No big deal.
What other “Tim and Eric” regulars would you like to see appear in this film? Our vote’s for Patton Oswalt, David Cross and Rainn Wilson! Let us know in the comments section or on Twitter!
