Clip: Run Fatboy Run

What do you get when you combine the talents of comedian Michael Ian Black (a Jew), David Schwimmer (another Jew!), Hank Azaria (a Sephardic Jew!) and Simon Pegg (not a Jew, but still funny)? You get the charming (but woefully comma-deficient) comedy Run Fatboy Run, that’s what.

Schwimmer directs Azaria and Pegg in what screenwriter Black calls a sweet romantic comedy about a fat guy who runs a marathon. Pegg (who also co-wrote the script) stars as said fat guy, reportedly strapping on prosthetic stomachs to fill out the role, since –as  any fan of Shaun of the Dead knows — Pegg is one skinny dude. The überbeautiful Thandie Newton, perhaps doing penance for the dreadful Crash, stars as Pegg's erstwhile love interest.

This quirky little rom-com looks like the perfect antidote to all the on-screen swimming pit bulls, deranged oil tycoons and Alzheimers patients of the past few months. Fatboy premiered in England last year and hits theaters stateside on March 28.
