Fan report: Elizabeth attends ‘The Rocker’ screening in Dallas
I wanted to thank you for the heads up about the appearance and screening here in Dallas. My friend and I went and saw the movie, absolutely hilarious. I can guarantee the first 20-30 minutes was the best ever. I never knew he was such a physical comedian, because he took a lot of falls and hits to the head.
Anyways, after the screening he came into the theatre and did a Q&A for about 40 minutes. Some of the highlights included:
- Sonic was a sponsor and he talked about having a cherry limeade and onion rings and how they were good. Guess he’s never been to one before.
- In his sarcastic sense of humor, he was calling out for the “Sonic biotch” who introduced him. Of course not to be mean just funny.
- Talked about his experiences doing theatre at NYC.
- Audience member asked what his favorite movie was which he then asked her what her favorite movie was and she responded Tommy Boy, which he then mocked her for.
- He threw out a couple of movies which one was Lord of The Rings.
- He was asked where his name came from which he attributes to having “hippy parents.”
- Last question was if he had to audition for The Rocker, and he went into a story that he was suggested to do by I believe he said Greg Daniels, but the president of Fox was hesitant until he saw Rainn do his air guitar and rock out during the Safety Training episode.
Unfortunately no pictures because the lights in the theatre were too dim.
