Dear Alan Tudyk,
My roommates, fiance and I have been waiting with bated breath to see your new movie, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. The trailer(s) had us on the floor in tears. We started counting down to Sept. 30, making plans to storm our local theater with smuggled candy and “I am a leaf on the wind” T-shirts.
But the limited release of TADVE kind of shoved the proverbial Reaver spike through our chests.
You seem like a nice guy with a soft spot for geeks. And geeks we are. We have followed your career since you were known as that red-haired guy in Knight’s Tale, so every time you’re on TV or in a movie, we’re there. And the bottom line for TADVE: it looks stinking hilarious.
This limited release faults every dedicated geek who doesn’t live in a major city. Spokane, Wash. (see? Wash? Even our state reps your Firefly persona) isn’t terribly small, but for some reason it gets passed over when super cool things are released to a limited audience. Yes, TADVE is coming to Spokane on Oct. 21, but we’re not terribly patient geeks.
I don’t know how much control you have over this movie. You’re probably already shooting your next movie or TV spot right now and playing with plastic dinosaurs in between takes. But it would be super cool if you were able to bring a screening to us opening weekend. Or even just send a self-destructible copy via courier that only played once before imploding. Think about it.
Anyway, this is my open letter to you, Alan Tudyk, on my blog that no one ever reads ever. It’s probably a product of my super-strong morning cold brew coffee, but it’s worth a shot, right?
Waiting for our miracle to get here,
