Dear Mr. Hader, It's Your Turn

August 17, 2008

Dear Bill Hader,

For three years now I have watched as others get the big laughs in comedies like You, Me and Dupree, Hot Rod, Superbad, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder. But what I do not understand is why you, the funniest character in each of these films, continues to not get the lead in a film. Sure, you are a great side character, but you have paid your dues. No respect to Danny McBride, but why is he getting all of the attention this summer? Why not you?

I see once again in Adventureland, set for a 2009 release, you are not the lead. And while I appreciate that you will be delightful in the otherwise not amusing Night At The Museum Part 2 as General Custer, I would like to see someone give you the time you deserve.

And yes, your new online series, The Line, is a hoot. I have been obsessed with all seven episodes (even if we only get 3 minutes of your comedic genius), but I am tired of the long slow tease. The short moments of Bill Hader comedy. I am ready for a full 90-110 minute comedy starring you.

If The Line does nothing else, it proves your writing skills are as fantastic as your comedic acting chops. So, where’s the feature length script?

Stop being the friend, the sidekick, the funny other guy. Be the star. We are ready for it. And I may even line up 11 days before its release.
