TRAILER: The Rocker

When I first saw "Back to You," I didn't think it was that funny. But after Josh Gad, the lead character in The Rocker, came onto the screen, I was laughing non-stop. He's just the right amount of pathetic. It seems Gad made his debut at the right time, since two other portly, curly-headed comedians, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill, broke-out in the last year.

In The Rocker, he stars alongside Rainn Wilson ("The Office") as a teenager who begs his uncle, who used to be an 80s rock star, to play the drums in his band for the prom so he can get chicks. Somehow he manages to parlay that into youtube fandom and a tour. Also co-starring are Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis ("SNL" and "30 Rock"), Emma Stone (Superbad), and pop singer Teddy Geiger. Watch the trailer!
