Marlon Wayans Cast as a Dollar Bill in Harmony Korine’s TWINKLE TWINKLE

Marlon Wayans (G.I. Joe) has been cast as a dollar bill in the upcoming Harmony Korine picture Twinkle, Twinkle. Let me repeat: according to TheWrap, Marlon Wayans has been cast as a dollar bill. All right — technically he’ll be playing a former hitman who dresses up in a dollar bill costume… but I’m not sure how that makes the news any less bizarre.

To be frank, judging from Harmony Korine’s oeuvre, this news shouldn’t be all that surprising. I mean this is the man whose previous film Trash Humpers focused on a bunch of sociopathic elderly people who got their kicks vandalizing homes and murdering folks. Such a synopsis would seem to be immediately appealing; but I’m sad to report the film itself is just a down right chore to sit through (as is much of Korine’s filmography). Marlon Wayans as a dollar bill will only be the second strangest role the actor/comedian has played, having previously starred as a little person impersonating a baby in the aptly titled modern masterpiece Little Man.  (I’m only half joking about the masterpiece part.)

    Why can’t Marlon just do a little more dramatic roles? Though if he’s going to do comedy, at least do something memorable versus those that are merely for studios to get a quick buck.

    Marlon Wayans has yet to make me laugh. He tries too hard to be funny but comes across as a dumbass. Weird Al isn’t much better. But still better than Marlon.

    Who wound up cast as Richard Pryor in the upcoming bio pic? I remember Marlon being attached, at least for a while… Ps. Trash Humpers is a guilty pleasure of mine. I know it’s ridiculous and laborious, but it just makes me smile that something so absurd exists. I also love that Hype Williams gave a shout out to Korine’s Gummo in Belly.

      Ps. What happened to Hype Williams?

        I will give Korine “Gummo” – one of the most deeply unsettling films I’ve seen in a good long time. It’s like “Our Town” except filled with the worst human beings on the planet. However “Julien Donkey Boy” and “Mister Lonely” are absolutely insufferable to get through.

        As for Hype Williams (I’m quite partial to “Belly” myself) – he just recently served as writer on Kanye West’s 30 minute music video “Runaway”. If I may be so bold – a link to said video: (http://www.collider.com/2010/10/25/kanye-west-runaway-music-video/#more-56330)
