Aziz Ansari, 30 Minutes Or Less, And Ruben Fleischer

Friday, April 09, 2010

I know that kid rocking the rice bowl haircut singing some Whitney Houston is all the rage right now - but really - this is just somehow that much better:

In what is shaping up to be a top shelf action comedy, tonight brings news that Aziz Ansari is in negotiations to star in 30 Minutes or Less from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer. The dapper comedian and co-star of Parks & Rec would play a junior high school teacher thrown into a ticking clock scenario when his pal—an aimless pizza delivery man—is ordered to rob a bank by two goons who strap a bomb to his chest....With his profile set to bazooka, Ansari’s casting is a smart choice. The role needs an irreverent talent to deliver many a stresser button quip. (What are the chances of one of his lines earns laughs at Justin Bieber’s expense?)
Aziz Ansari and jokes at the expense of Justin Bieber?

I'm in.
