While it's unclear what role Bill Hader is in talks to play in Amy Schumer's upcoming Judd Apatowdirected flick Trainwreck, it seems immediately clear that he would make a perfect romantic foil for Schumer. On the other hand, he would also make a perfect, let's say, color-blind agoraphobic bank teller or charismatic lactose-intolerant mortician. Has there ever been a movie with a hyper-bizarre character as the romantic lead? Can Trainwreck be the first?
