'Dale Archdale': Meet Matthew Warzel, Ron Jeremy and rest of the cast of raunchy slapstick parody
The film's cast is filled with controversial stars, most glaringly Ron Jeremy, who is currently on trial for sexual assault
'Dale Archdale' features a trailer park king whose home has been shut down, forcing him to live with his ex-wife. However, the prize money from a local Chili Cook-Off is just the amount he needs to buy back the trailer park but first he must face his snooty neighbors, an angry mob boss and shenanigans from his inbred pack of hillbilly friends and family members along the way.
'Dale Archdale' has been a long time coming. He has been a character on Matthew Warzel's YouTube page for years, and now he gets his very own parody film, starring Matthew Warzel himself as Dale Archdale and featuring famed pornstar Ron Jeremy and comedian Brick Jackson. Before the movie's release on VOD, we take a look at the stars of the feature film and what you can look forward to when the movie releases.
Warzel is the writer, producer, director and lead of 'Dale Archdale', starring as the titular character. Dale Archdale is a character that Warzel has used for years on his YouTube comedy channel, where he posts a number of parody videos written by himself. He has also appeared in numerous bit roles in several films and television series, but Warzel's claim to fame is as a comedic writer. Know for controversial, off-color humor, the trailer for 'Dale Archdale' warns people not to watch the movie if they're easily offended and tells people to "lighten up" — an attitude that has pervaded nearly all of his work, from this film to works such as 'To Catch a Dyslexic Predator'.
A comedian, improv comic, actor and seasoned host, Brick Jackson has had a storied career. He has appeared in films such as 'American Soul', 'Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween' and on TV serials such as 'On Becoming a God in Central Florida'. He has written for numerous film shorts such as 'Agents of Men in Black', 'Group Selfie' and 'Finch's Party'. Brick Jackson plays Black Waldo in 'Dale Archdale.'
Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy is an adult film star who has worked in the industry for decades, and is the subject of the 2001 documentary, 'Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy.' He has appeared in too many poronographic films to name, as well as in television roles, and cameos in non-pornographic films, specials, and even video games. The movie touts his appearance in the film as a starring role, but the actor has run into recent controversy.
After around a dozen women came fort with sexual assault allegations against the actor, he was charged in court as recently as last month for forcible assault and rape against four women. The 67-year-old actor is facing upto 90 years in prison if convicted. At the trial, Jeremy entered a plea of "not guilty."
'Dale Archdale' releases on VOD on July 7.
