Bucky Larson Exclusive: Nick Swardson Video Interview

by at . Comments
Nick Swardson is ready for his close-up in Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star. The supporting player in Adam Sandler films (Just Go With It) and 30 Minutes or Less opposite Danny McBride is front and center in the film that features him as a co-writer, producer and full-on star.

Swardson is visiting with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills and is sitting awaiting us in the very same room where I interviewed Jim Carrey. With his performance as a dim-witted Iowa boy who heads to Hollywood with dreams of being a porn star, we for one, hope this comedian possesses the same star trajectory that Carrey has enjoyed.

Watching Swardson in Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star, in his buck toothed, bowl haircut style, is a piece of pure joy. There’s an innocence to Swardson’s characterization of Bucky Larson that brings a sweetness to a film that could otherwise be nothing but a naughty comedy trip.

Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star lands in theaters September 9 and features a cast that is all game for bringing Swardson’s silliness to the masses including Kevin Nealon, Stephen Dorff, Christina Ricci and Don Johnson.
