After briefly visiting some dramatic territory in films like Brokeback Mountain and the upcoming Goya's Ghost, Randy Quaid might be returning to the type of flick we're used to seeing him in: a moronic comedy. The actor is in final negotiations to star alongside Sean William Scott (that name should immediately signal your moron alert) in the indie comedy Gary the Tennis Coach. And yes, Quaid would play Gary.
Danny Leiner, who teamed with Scott on Dude Where's My Car? and also directed the surprisingly hilarious Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, will take over helming duties on the pic. Newbie scribes Andy Stock and Rick Stempson penned the script. As with most sports comedies, story revolves around a high school janitor-turned-tennis coach who's placed in charge of teaching a group of lovable misfits how to play the game, eventually guiding the team toward the Nebraska state championship. While the film sounds fun, I'm just dying to see Quaid take on the role of King Carlos IV in Goya's Ghost. Interesting territory for a guy who played the disgustingly vulgar Cousin Eddie in all those Vacation movies.
