While the majority of audiences would rightfully recognize Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreations, the actor is using his success on the NBC show to launch into the feature film world. In 2012 he had bit parts in 21 Jump Street, Smashed and Casa de mi Padre and this year is already shaping up to be a major one with the Sundance premieres of Toy’s House (review) and In a World… (review), as well as Diablo Cody‘s directorial debut and the major summer comedy We’re the Millers.
But before any of those arrive in theaters, a small SXSW hit will be making its way to audiences and the first trailer has arrived today. Premiering at last year’s festival, we called Bob Byington‘s Somebody Up There Likes Me the most detached comedy of the year thus far, with its intentionally lifeless performances. One can easily see the claim come true in the promising trailer below, for the film also starring Jess Weixler, Keith Poulson, Megan Mullally, Kevin Corrigan, Kate Lyn Shell, Stephanie Hunt and Jonathan Togo.
Somebody Up There Likes Me arrives on March 8th in theaters and four days later on VOD.
