The new Conan has finally found a lead. You might find it hard to believe but the new lead shares a LOT of similarities with Arnold.
is born in Austria (check)
has been a pro bodybuilder (check)
probably sports a thick Austrian accent (check)
I guess the list could go on and on. I could imagine someone from Nu Image is having a DUH moment right now. They’ve looked everywhere but the one place where Arnolds are born and bred. They gotta be careful though, so that photos of him in skinny jeans don’t surface anytime soon.
The movie is based on a memoir by British writer Toby Young. So you could say, this is a TRUE story. Or rather, it would’ve been, if the the script writer didn’t change the memoirs almost completely… which is an irony itself.
The plot is straight-forward: Sidney Young, a small time journalist, goes to New York City. His task is to cover the world of celebrities. In order to keep his job, he has to do a favorable article about Sophie Maes (sexy Megan Fox even without makeup).
Sidney is attracted to Sophie and all the glitz. However, when Sophie is high and he has a shot, he … well, misses.
