Hot Rod

Saturday Night Live comedian Andy Samberg makes his debut this summer with the comedy Hot Rod. Directed by Akiva Schaffer, the film stars Samberg as a wannabe stuntman who’s trying to make a name for himself. Hot Rod also stars Isla Fisher, Jorma Taccone, Bill Hader, with Sissy Spacek and Ian McShane.

Synopsis:
Amateur stuntman Rod Kimble (Samberg) has a problem – his step-father Frank (McShane) is a jerk. Frank picks on Rod, tosses him around like a rag doll in their weekly sparring sessions, and definitely doesn’t respect him, much less his stunts. But when Frank falls ill, it’s up to Rod to stage the jump of his life in order to save his step-father. The plan: Jump 15 buses, raise the money for Frank’s heart operation, and then… kick his ass.

Executive Producers: Will Ferrell, Jimmy Miller, Jill Messick
Produced by: Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn
