The Lakewood Patch interviewed “Cleveland, I Love You” producer Eric Swinderman yesterday.
First things first, I really like the community news site known as Patch. Can we talk about how completely adorable the word “Patch” is?
The story being shot there is one of my scripts I contributed called “Wingmen”. It’s 95% taking place in a bar, and I’d love to get a lot of my pals out as extras so they can sit around and drink the entire time we film. They can really get WILD. You better believe most of the Juggalohio crew will be a part of this as well! Check out the article if you want to know the surprise ending of my story. It’s totally in there! The article also doesn’t indicate that I wrote it/will be directing it, but I assure it’s true. I haven’t lied about writing/directing a movie since Old Dogs. I’m definitely going to add myself to the Old Dogs IMDB.
Now for some seriously radical Lakewood info: did you know it’s the most densely populated town between New York and Chicago? Did you know I lived there when I was five? Did you know George Herbert Walker Bush was once mayor of Lakewood?* Did you know my friend Matt and I had our iPods stolen out of my car there (at MELT)? Did you know Fede’s bowl got stolen as well? I have conflicting emotions about Lakewood, but I think filming this will make me think it’s just wonderful.
The best AUTUMN ever starts this weekend.
*George Herbert Walker Bush was never the mayor of Lakewood. I was just lyin’.
