Fresh off of a Comedy Central roast, Rob Lowe has elected to join the cast of Super Troopers 2. As you know, Broken Lizard began shooting last week for the sequel after raising more than $4.5 million dollars during a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo. Per Deadline:
[Lowe] will play Guy Le Franc, a former hockey player and the current mayor of a Quebec Canadian border town.
Alright, so that’s really good news. I’m still pretty torn on this movie because, in general, sequels are usually terrible. But Rob Lowe is awesome, and Canadian accents make me laugh so this might be worth the trek to the movie theater after all.
Rob Lowe is a five-tool player. He can do dramatic, funny, dark and brooding – it doesn’t matter. He’s multifaceted and I’m guaranteeing that because he signed on for this part, there are going to be a ton of fun celebrity cameos that we won’t know about until the movie premieres. I’m starting to get a Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me vibe from this sequel and I don’t hate it at all. .
