A Chris Farley Story (D: Gad) S: Paul Walter Hauser

https://deadline.com/2024/04/chris-f...ng-1235882140/
Now here is a package coming together that is sure to set the town and market on fire. Deadline is hearing that a script based on The Chris Farley Show: A Biography in Three Acts is being shopped with Paul Walter Hauser attached to play the iconic late comic and actor.

Josh Gad will direct with Lorne Michaels, who found and cast Farley in Saturday Night Live in the ’90s, producing through his Broadway Video. The package will be sold as a pitch based on the book with Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber penning the script.


I was such a huge fan of 90s SNL and we all know the story but man this gonna be hard to watch.

Seems like an impossible task for Haiser to pull off. I’m not sure anyone could properly capture Farley’s lovable personality. Just falling into coffee tables isn’t going to cut it. We’ll see.

Hauser is deceivingly talented. He's such a jackass in Cobra Kai but everything else he's in has been pretty damned good... but yeah, emulating Farley is going to be tough -- for anyone.

He killed it in that Clint Eastwood Richard Jewel movie and one of the more underrrated actors working today.
