Jeff Foxworthy is making a move to the big screen, Variety reports. The actor/comedian is set for a supporting role in the currently-in-production sports comedy Crackerjack and will also executive produce.
Now shooting in Savannah, GA under writer/director Bryan Coley, the film is officially described as follows:
In the off-beat style of Raising Arizona, the story follows Bo Crackerjack Bailey, Jr. (CJ), an artful dodger skilled in avoiding the responsibilities of manhood. His residence of choice is a trailer, his ambitious career entails collecting Cabbage Patch dolls to sell on eBay, his venture into commitment is a four-year, pseudo-engagement to live-in girlfriend Sherry, and through it all, he immerses himself in his drug of choice: softball. But when Sherry learns she’s pregnant and leaves until he can figure out how to be the real man she needs, CJ vows to become an upright, church-going man and give up softball. That is, until he finds out about the Church League. And it’s not always crystal clear just what Jesus would do much less what CJ should do to be a man, on or off the field.
Relative newcomer Wes Murphy is set to play CJ with Foxworthy playing the part of the Church League Announcer. No details are currently available about when the film is targeted to see release, but the film’s tentative logo is pictured below:
