Jai Courtney Joins WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: TEN YEARS LATER
Look, it'd be absurd and unfair to suggest that the Birth.Movies.Death. Cult of Jai Courtney has had any bearing whatsoever on the man's career. Jai Courtney made it this far (Terminator: Genisys) without us, and we all know he's got plenty more (A Good Day To Die Hard) where that came from (Suicide Squad).
Sure, maybe we launched a hashtag campaign (#JaiBless) that has literally saved lives all over the world. What of it? It hasn't changed the trajectory of Jai Courtney's career one bit.
Oh, hello, Deadline. Got something to share with the rest of us?
Suicide Squad star Jai Courtney has been cast opposite Amy Poehler in Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, Netflix’s sequel series to the limited series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp that was based on the cult 2001 movie.
Courtney plays Garth MacArthur, a suave, indie movie darling who is about to become a household name. Garth is recognized wherever he goes, but his eyes aren’t on the fans. He’s mad about Susie (Poehler) and wishes she would agree to take their relationship beyond “friends with benefits.” He joins her on the trip back to Camp Firewood.
OK, yes, Jai Courtney is a talented actor and has made it this far on his own, granted, but come on: "Jai Courtney joins the next season of Wet Hot American Summer"? I have no idea how it happened, but I am absolutely certain that Team Birth.Movies.Death. played a role somewhere along the line.
What a victory for all of us. Especially Jai Courtney, who proved himself a capable comedic actor in this summer's Suicide Squad (say what you will about the movie, but Jai owned in that thing). Friends, please take this opportunity to flood the comments section below with celebratory messages for the patron saint of Birth.Movies.Death.
We know he's out there, somewhere, listening.
