Happy Birthday Ted Raimi, Trailer For New Film
Sam Raimi's younger brother isn't so young after all. 'Joxer The Mighty' himself turns 41 today and just by co-incidence, the trailer for the new movie that Ted Raimi will be in was also released today. According to Slash Film, Ted will be appearing in the new movie Reign Over Me, which stars Adam Sandler. Here is an excerpt of the movie description:
"Reign Over Me follows a man, played by Sandler, who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City and runs into his old college roommate who is now a psychiatrist, played by Don Cheadle. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief. The movie also stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Liv Tyler, Cicely Tyson, Ted Raimi and Mike Binder, who also wrote and directs. Binder's filmography also includes: Man About Town, The Upside of Anger, The Search for John Gissing, Fourplay, The Sex Monster, Blankman, and Indian Summer."
Now Ted isn't in the preview for the movie, but he might have a decent part in the film. The reason for why I think he might have a larger role is that Slash Film mentions, in the above, about 5 co-stars in the movie and Ted Raimi is one of them. He is paired with the likes of Jada Pinkett Smith and Liv Tyler which is pretty damn cool. So hopefully he has a big part in this movie. The reason why Ted Raimi may have been cast in this film is because the writer and director of the film is Mike Binder, who also wrote and directed Indian Summer which co-starred Sam Raimi in 'pivotal' role in that film. I think Mike Binder is buddies with the Raimi's. Happy Birthday again to Ted. I wonder if Bruce will give him the birthday beats.
