Graham Parker Knocked Up

(Gibson) Comedy writer-director-producer extraordinaire Judd Apatow is currently at work on a spin-off to 2007's blockbuster Knocked Up, and the movie will feature cult music hero Graham Parker reuniting with his band, The Rumour. Rolling Stone reports that the untitled film is due out next year and stars Paul Rudd.

Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their Knocked Up roles as Pete and Debbie, who are both dealing with midlife crises. Albert Brooks, Jason Segel and Megan Fox also appear in the movie.

So how does the former "angry young man" Parker fit in? Pete is a record industry A&R man who starts his own record label and signs Parker and the Rumour. "As far as I can tell, I'm basically a metaphor for abject failure in Judd's movie and I couldn't be more thrilled," Parker said.. "This whole experience is proof of that old show business rule I did not think would ever apply to me that if you stick around long enough, anything can happen. You can't write this stuff. Except Judd did." more on this story
