Seann William Scott Says He Wants To Do A Role Models Sequel
The noughties was the peak era for gross-out comedies, gifting us with the likes of Superbad, The Hangover, Anchorman, Step Brothers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
And among those titans of cinema was another classic, Role Models. Starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, the 2008 movie told the story of two energy drink salesman ordered to carry out 150 hours of community service and buddy up with troubled youths.
Who can forget the 'whispering eye'?
Well, 11 years on and Scott has said he would jump at the chance of doing a sequel to that AND Dude, Where's My Car.
Responding to a fan during a recent Reddit AMA, the American Pie actor said: "Ahhhhhh!!! Role Models!!! So much fricking fun!!!! I think I put a dead fish under the sofa in Paul Rudd's trailer which stunk things up in there hard until he discovered it a few days later.... he got me back when he hid a dirty diaper in my trailer."

He added: "Every day was a ball on that film!! I would also love it if me, Paul and Wain [David Wain, the director] worked together again!"
And if that wasn't enough, if the opportunity arose he already has a name ready for a sequel to another of his classics.

The 42-year-old added: "The world needs a Dude, Where's My Car sequel!!! It would be called Seriously, Dude Where's My Car."
Now, before you get too excited, this isn't the first time Scott has talked about wanting to do another Role Models.
But when asked a couple of years ago about the possibility of reprising his cult role, he wasn't so sure it could happen in today's climate.
Speaking to Cinemabland, he said: "No. Unfortunately, because that was so much fun to work with Paul and the whole gang of amazing actors and actresses.
"But you know why I don't think so? Somebody had told me, I met a really big producer who actually used to run a studio.
"This was like a few years ago, actually. If you think about how, I mean, R-rated comedies are dead, unfortunately. Pretty much.
"And this producer told me four or five years ago. He was like, 'man we could never make Role Models today.' I was like, 'really?' He was like, 'Nope. Studios, it's just a different system. Just that premise. It's just. It's not worth the money for these people now."
He added: "It's a completely different group of people making decisions on what movies get made.' So I think based on that probably not."
Come on, just do it already!
