For years, 80’s action star Jean Claude Van Damme has been unintentionally making us laugh (mostly involving drunken dance moves and quivering cheek muscles), but as we saw in his scene stealing performance in 2012’s The Expendables 2, the guy can actually be downright hilarious even when he planned it that way. And with Welcome to the Jungle, he’ll be flexing those comedy muscles from Brussels in a big way, as you can see this new Red Band trailer.
Legendary action star Jean-Claude Van Damme takes on his first comedic role and joins Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Kristen Schaal, Megan Boone, and Dennis Haysbert in “Welcome to the Jungle”. This laugh-out-loud comedy follows a group of unsuspecting office workers who find themselves stranded on a desert island when a corporate retreat led by unhinged former Marine Storm Rothchild (Van Damme) goes horribly wrong. Now Chris (Brody) and his co-workers must battle nature — and each other — to survive!
If you ask me, Van Damme has that tiger right where he wants him. Also, for the record, Storm Rothschild is the best name to come out of Hollywood in years.
Welcome to the Jungle also stars Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Kristen Schaal, Megan Boone and Dennis Haysbert and will be getting a limited release on February 7, 2014.
