At long last, the trailer for David Wain’s movie about National Lampoon founder Doug Kenney has arrived. Titled A Futile and Stupid Gesture, the film stars Will Forte and features a killer cast of today’s comedy stars playing ‘70s comedy pioneers, including Forte as Kenney, Thomas Lennon as Michael O’Donoghue, Joel McHale as Chevy Chase, Jackie Tohn as Gilda Radner, Jon Daly as Bill Murray, John Gemberling as John Belushi, and tons more, plus Martin Mull playing the narrator (Wain described the role to Entertainment Weekly as “a modern-day Kenney who helps Wain ‘tell the story in as creative and outside-the-box way for today as Doug Kenney did what he did then.’”) The film is based on Josh Karp’s 2006 book of the same name, written by Michael Colton and John Aboud, produced by Jonathan Stern and Peter Principato, and makes its Netflix debut Friday, January 26th.
