MTV is reporting that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have dropped out of Outsourced, Hank Azaria's directorial debut that was supposedly developed with Vaughn and Wilson in mind. The article continues:
“It was developed for Vince and Owen, but they’re not doing it anymore,” director Hank Azaria revealed.
“The Simpsons” voice actor has put his acting career on hold to shoot “Outsourced,” a comedy that marks Azaria’s directorial debut. “It’s about these two guys who work at a factory in Southern California,” Azaria said. “Their jobs get outsourced to Mexico, and they decide ‘Well, we like Mexico. Let’s go down there and work down there’. And they become like the Norma Raes of Mexico.”
Personally, I say "good riddance." Hank Azaria is one of the funniest people in Hollywood, and also one of the least appreciated, in my humble opinion. Vaughn and Wilson — while funny sometimes — have often struck me as cocky and obnoxious, so I've decided to be mad at them on Azaria's behalf. And maybe this just clears the way for some better comedic actors to take their places.
