School reunions. I’ve never seen the point of them. Most likely due to the fact that I don’t want my unforgiving rage reignited when I’m forced to make small talk with a number of people who’d I sooner kick off a bridge than feign interest in their life but uh…No, it might just be me. And those jerkasses.
ANYWAY! A school reunion is the driving force behind The D Train, which is conincidentally also my stage name when I perform at a Chippendales bar. It stars Jack “Tenacious D” Black as he attempts to salvage such a reunion by roping in some of James Marsden’s star power. Check it:
All his life, Dan Landsman (Jack Black) has never been the cool guy. That’s about to change – if he can convince Oliver Lawless (Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion. A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to LA and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless. But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life. Showcasing Jack Black and James Marsden’s most intoxicating performances to date, D TRAIN serves up the question: how far would you go to be popular?
The film opens May 8th and also stars Jeffrey Tambor, Mike White, Kyle Bornheimer, Henry Zebrowski, and Russell Posner.
