Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man has appeared in some wack films since he began dabbling in them in the late 90’s, first with the Samuel L. Jackson thriller, “187.” But, Method Man also played Melvin ‘Cheese’ Wagstaff in one of the best TV series of the last decade, “The Wire” and has appeared in quality films like the reefer comedy-turned-psychotherapy drama “The Wackness.”
The Playlist reports that he’s been cast in director David Gordon Green’s (“Pineapple Express”) next film, “The Sitter” described as a comedy “following a college dropout who has to take his three babysitting charges across town to buy drugs for his girlfriend.” It sounds like Green wanted another go at “Pineapple Express” after staying up late with a fatty, watching “Adventures in Babysitting.”
I expect stars Sam Rockwell, Jonah Hill and Max Records (best name in show business), the kid from “Where The Wild Things Are,” to help bring something worthwhile to the project. “The Sitter” has already wrapped, and currently has a July release date. Before that, we’ll have the “breathe deeply of these herbs” comedy from Green, “Your Highness,” which looks like a tremendous
waste amount of talent and time spent on one or two laughs.
