That's just silly, that's sketch comedy for me. He's [ Jermaine Clement] is brilliant, by the way, that Jermaine, I saw some of his rushes him and Jennifer Coolidge are...phew.As for what the movie is about, he said:
It's kind of like Rushmore and Flash Gordon and I play the Flash Gordon character. I play two versions of him because they plagiarize the story within the movie. Jermaine plagiarizes it from our kid, Michael [Michael Angarano]. That's a really awesome movie.But the really important question: Does he get to wear a superhero costume? Rockwell said:
I wear a lot of costumes in this, some really tight uncomfortable costumes in this. I'm in drag basically in one of the characters. I look like Captain Kangaroo in drag like a transvestite version. When we filmed it, it was insane. It took a month in the desert in Utah, but it was great. It's a comedic hero, it's silly. It's like Will Ferrel meets Flash Gordon, that kind of thing. It makes fun of itself.I can not wait for this film. Sam Rockwell plus Jemaine Clement = comedy genius.
