Plus 5 Clips From The Upcoming Sequel
Miles Fisher is no stranger to parody/viral videos. In fact, that's how he's made his name so far in Hollywood. The actor's uncanny physical resemblance to Tom Cruise served him well when he played the actor in "Superhero Movie" in a clip that hit the YouTube and made the rounds, and he earned further attention for his role in the Hollywood skewering "Pinkberry: The Movie" (you can watch both of those right here) Well, the actor will appear later his year in Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" but before that, he'll try and cheat death in "Final Destination 5" and no matter what you think about the latest flick in the horror franchise, you gotta admit, this is pretty funny.
Together with "American Psycho" producer Jake Avnet, director Dave Green and his co-stars in "Final Destination 5," Fisher has cooked up "New Romance," a musical and "Saved By The Bell" parody that also riffs on the elaborate deaths in the horror series, and you know what? It works pretty well. The song that powers the spot is oddly addicting and the humor and kills are pretty spot on. Fisher proves himself again to be a magnetic presence on screen and this should certainly put more eyes on the actor and get him onto bigger and better projects. As far as viral/promo videos for movies, this is certainly one of the best to come along in a while.
