Guy Who Drew ‘D**ks’ In The Movie Superbad Shows How Much He Still Makes
| Last updated
One Superbad star you may or may not remember is still making a pretty penny from his short stint in the film. Watch the clip below:
Introducing himself simply as ‘the kid who drew the d**ks in Superbad’, actor Casey Margolis - who played a younger version of Jonah Hill's character Seth in the 2007 film - revealed how much he still gets paid in residuals 15 years after the film's release.
Residuals are royalty payments actors and other creatives receive from online streaming releases, DVD releases and reruns of their films and TV shows.
The grand total comes to $255.39 (£189.43). Not bad for a minor cameo.
He went on to reveal the largest residuals cheque he ever received was a whopping $6,757.47 (£5,011.37), and he estimates over time he's received around $100,000 (£74,000) for starring in the movie.
The TikTok video, which has now been seen by over six million people, has racked up a lot of attention from Superbad fans.
One person commented: “I watched this movie 15 times in the last six months, you’re welcome.”
Another added: “Bro for only having like three scenes zero words to say lol that ain’t bad.”
A third said: “I can only imagine how much Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are getting.”
A fourth saw a business opportunity and wrote: "You keep the drawings? Make them NFTs for profit.”
Margolis replied: "Might be dropping something soon."
The original high school comedy movie - which was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg - is now considered a classic of the genre by many.
A sequel would be warmly welcomed by fans of the flick and star Hill would be up for it on one condition.
Speaking to W Magazine, he said: "I haven't pitched this to anybody. What I want to do is when we're like 80, do a Superbad 2.
"Like, 'old-folks-home Superbad'. Our spouses die, and we're single again. That's what I want Superbad 2 to be, and that's the only way I would ever make it."
Fair enough - reckon plenty of people would pay to see that.
The question is, do we have to wait another 40 years, or are the cast gonna age up? I for one vote for the latter option.
