Last year we praised the celebrity pulling power of Adam “MCA” Yauch whose remake of The Beastie Boy’s “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)” film clip boasted, up to that point, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell, John C Reilly and Jack Black. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg – if icebergs were epic ensemble casts composed of people who’ve been in Lord Of The Rings, former SNL players, Arrested Development/Parks and Rec alumni, Apatow associates, people who know Sofia Coppola personally, and Steve “fucking” Buscemi. Best ensemble cast ever? For serious, Robert Altman just sent Paul Thomas Anderson a telegram from heaven like daaaayuuummmm son.
According to IMDB (via Consequence of Sound) the full cast includes, deep breathe now…Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Mike Mills, Rainn Wilson, Ted Danson, Roman Coppola, Shannyn Sossamon, Steve Buscemi, Amy Poehler, Alicia Silverstone, Laura Dern, Jason Schwartzman, Chloë Sevigny, Kirsten Dunst, Maya Rudolph, David Cross, Orlando Bloom, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
Fight For Your Right Revisited will premiere at the Sundance Short Film Festival later this month. Our pants will dry sometime after.
