Default Bryan Callen Reflects

Bryan Callen has been cast in a leading role for the upcoming adventure comedy movie "The Mirror".
From Businesswire.com: Big Screen Entertainment (OTC:BSEG) is pleased to announce Bryan Callen to the cast of BSEG's feature film, "The Mirror." Bryan's previous credits include co-starring in the Kirstie Alley show "Fat Actress," HBO's "Sex and the City" and "Oz," as well as being an original cast member of "Mad TV." Bryan's feature films include the mega hits "Bad Santa" and "Old School."

In "The Mirror," Callen plays Harvey Mancini, a sleazy producer who is searching for buried treasure left by 1930s film legend Johnny Rambova. "Bryan brings such humor and likability to a difficult part. His character is hustling everyone, yet he manages to be menacing and funny all in one," said Stephen Eckelberry, the film's director and BSEG's VP of production.
Sounds like a decent B grade movie, and while its not likely to be a smash hit (what with the parallels to National Treasure and Sahara), it should earn Bryan a reasonable pay packet.

"Bryan Callen Reflects"? Well, that doesn't make much sense, since he's starring in a movie, The Mirror, and....Oh, Kurt, you and your punny sense of humor!

Hehehe, anyway, yeah, I guess we can add Bryan to the list of "MADtv" alumni who keep a-knockin' on the door to the big time yet can't quite seem to tear the sucker off its hinges, so to speak. (O.K., enough with the puns and metaphors, already....GAAAAAAAAAH! ) Anyway, Bryan may not be quite on the same tier of success as Nicole S., Alex, and Orlando, but he's getting there. While I don't think that this movie will help him make huge strides toward "getting there," I guess every little bit helps.

"Charles Nelson Reilly is a bad mutha...."
"Shut yo' mouth!"
"I'm talkin' 'bout Macho Chuck."
"We can dig it!"

He was so cute in Scary Movie 4. Was cool to see him, wasn't expecting to see him.
