Samuel L. Jackson Joins Saget's "Penguins" Mockumentary

by | March 27, 2006 | Comments

Sam Jackson is moving from snakes to penguins as he lends his voice to "Farce of the Penguins," a R-rated, Bob Saget-directed spoof on last year’s Oscar-winning doc "March of the Penguins."

Saget is writing and directing "Farce of the Penguins," which lampoons the survival story of "March" and will follow that film’s structure, lending character voices to real footage of penguins in the wild. Per Variety, "Farce" tells the story "of one bird’s search for love while on a 70-mile trek with hedonistic buddies obsessed with getting laid."

Jackson will act as narrator in the vein of his "March" counterpart Morgan Freeman, but will lend his "signature" style to the pic to earn its R-rating. Jackson joins a cast that includes Saget (voicing the protagonist penguin), Dave Coulier and John Stamos (rounding out the "Full House" trifecta), Whoopi Goldberg, Harvey Fierstein, Jon Lovitz, Norm MacDonald, Mo’Nique, Carlos Mencia, Tracy Morgan, Lewis Black, Jason Alexander, Dane Cook, Gilbert Gottfried, Jason Biggs, Jamie Kennedy, Alyson Hannigan, James Belushi and Adam Duritz.

"Farce of the Penguins" is a ThinkFilm release and is set to hit theaters this summer.
