SNL alum Will Forte books TV/movie gigs -
SNLalum Will Forte has booked a flurry of gigs in both television and film for the upcoming year.
Firstly, he has signed on to voice characters in the upcoming Fox animated comedy Allen Gregory. Allen Gregory, produced by Jonah Hill, will also feature the vocal talents of Hill and French Stewart.
Meanwhile, Forte has also signed on to star in the Irish independent feature Run and Jump, written by Ailbhe Keogan and Steph Green. Green, who received an Academy Award nomination in 2009 for her short film “New Boy”, will also direct the feature which shoots on location in Ireland this May.
Finally, Forte is set to appear in Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s “Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie”, which, just yesterday, secured a distribution deal with Magnolia.
My life as a TV pitch -
"While all the other kids are out getting up to mischief, Amy stays indoors watching PBS documentaries and clips of Furry Vengeance, wondering if Brendan Fraser will ever get his act together."
