"Victory's Glory" as told by Rusty Cundieff
Directed by: Rusty Cundieff
Cast: Terrence Howard
NBA Players: Larry Sanders, Jared Dudley, Corey Brewer
As told by Director Rusty Cundieff:
It was great having the opportunity to work on MOVIE 43. I have been a
Farrelly Brothers fan for some time, so this was a really great
experience for me on that level alone. But the real fun was working
with writers Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko and creating the basketball
moments for "Victory's Glory." And of course it was a blast to work
with the segment's star, Terrence Howard, who told me he wanted to show
he could be funny after doing so many dramatic roles. He really put his
all into his performance. I don't think there is a comic alive that
could have turned in a funnier and more on point performance.
It was a very quick two days of shooting, and it was very difficult
trimming the piece down to a tight five minutes when there was so much
funny stuff to choose from. I'm pretty sure the first cut was up above
twelve minutes and I hope at some point a few of the gems we had to
lose in the edit will find their way to some outtakes on special
extended disc. It was also a fun time working with the
combination of actors and actual NBA players that composed the high
school basketball teams in the sketch. I'd bet the audience
won't be able to tell which is which unless they're NBA fans and know
the players. The NBA guys could all have careers in
Hollywood; they were that good.
And though I didn't work with them directly, it's very exciting to have
participated in a film that is packed with so many stars, and other
talented directors. Lots of laughs.
