Review godsend Andy Daly is playing a middle school principal once again, although you aren’t likely to confuse him with his Eastbound & Down alter-ego. Daly is the villain trying to thwart Griffin Gluck (perfect teen actor name) at every turn in the upcoming family comedy Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.
Based on the best-selling novel from James Patterson (yes, the Alex Cross dude), Middle School pits Daly’s rules obsessed Principal Dwight against Gluck’s new kid in school Rafe Khatchadorian. Do shenanigans abound? The freshly released trailer suggests yes!
“Creativity has no place in this school,” proclaims Daly in the preview to let you know that he won’t stand for any brand of PG mischief even though he appears to be in for humiliation upon humiliation.
The motion picture, due out on October 7, has a healthy assortment of people you’re likely to be a fan of in the cast. Retta, Adam Pally, Rob Riggle, Lauren Graham and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp scene stealer Thomas Barbusca all lend their talents to this potential film franchise starter. Feelings may be mixed on who’s helming this thing. Paul Blart: Mall Cop auteur Steve Carr was the person chosen to direct. Sort out if it’s up your alley by giving a gander at the trailer and providing your verdict in the comments.
