An exclusive clip from Nerdland, in which John (Paul Rudd) and Elliot (Patton Oswalt), disguised as hippies, try inciting cops to violence to get “golden footage” of a police beating and thus fulfill their dreams of stardom. “I can hear the grass grow!” crows Elliot. Do the cops take the bait? Check out the clip:
Nerdland features Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt, Mike Judge, Hannibal Buress, Kate Micucci, Riki Lindhome and others. The film tells the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter Elliot and aspiring actor John, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous—or infamous—than ever before.
