Post Ike's Script Attracts One of Hollywood's Biggest Stars

Thanks to nick for the information.

When you think of Ike Barinholtz you think of MADtv star, master impressionist, and one of the best White sidekicks to a Black/Asian man that ever lived, but now you can also add successful script writer to the list, as Ike has finished a script that has not only been picked up by Universal Studios, but has also nailed down one of today's biggest comedic talents to play the lead role.

For the last few months Ike, along with friend Dave Stassen has been writing a script called Central Intelligence, about an accountant, who after getting in touch with an old friend through the social networking site Facebook is forced into a world of international espionage.

The script and the idea must be very good, as not only was it picked up by Universal Studios but Universal also was able to grab comedy mega star Ed Helms to play the lead role. That's right, former Daily Show correspondent, current Office cast member, and the man who recently played a starring role in The Hangover, the biggest comedy of the year so far, has been nailed down to play the lead, in a movie our very own Ike Barinholtz wrote.

I, like most of you out there, congratulate Ike on this stellar achievement. Let's hope this is the beginning of what could be a great writing career for the former MADtv star. Who knows, maybe if Central Intelligence becomes a box office smash, Ike could pen the script to another future box office smash, MADtv the Movie (A man can dream can't he?).

I would kill for a MAD TV movie. Or even a Stuart Movie with other MAD characters in it.

Good for IKE though, I'm glad his career is still going full force!

I love Nicole Sullivan, Alex Borestien, Mo Collins, Debra Wilson, Nicole Parker, Danielle Gaither, Paul Vogt, and Mary Scheer.
