Picks and Pans Review: The Hookup on Larry the Cable Guy
He's notched a No. 1 comedy album, a top-grossing tour, a TV gig (The WB's Blue Collar TV) and a line of trucker hats with his motto "Git-R-Done." Now Larry the Cable Guy (a.k.a. Dan Lawrence Whitney, 43) brings his blue-collar humor to the big screen with Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector. How'd he do it?
1 DEVELOP A CHARACTER Larry is a part of me magnified. I grew up on a farm in Nebraska. All's I did was put on the [Southern] accent thicker.
2 STEP ON THE GAS Listen, I'm not all about farts, but they are hilarious. There are a few [in the movie]. It's about people getting food poisoning. It's kinda hard to avoid.
3 HAVE A FALLBACK JOB If I hadn't ended up doing [comedy], I would have opened my version of Bed Bath & Beyond for guys called Beer, Bed and a Blonde. There's still time.
