Wayne McClammy to Direct Cool School

The Man Behind the Kimmel vs Silverman Videos Gets a Movie

Someone once told me that to make it in Hollywood, one needs persistence, talent and a lot of luck.

Well, these days, add to that a hit viral video because the director of the "comedy shorts" known to most as the F***king Matt Damon and Ben Affleck videos is getting a shot at directing a feature film.

It never occurred to me that there might be an honest-to-goodness aspiring movie director behind those dueling videos. Turns out there was, and his name is Wayne McClammy (even his name is funny) who has worked as a writer and director on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Sarah Silverman Program.

The film he's set to direct is called Cool School and is about "ad executives in their early thirties who are sent back to high school to learn how to be cool again." What do you think? Is it wise to trust an entire film to a guy known mostly for short viral videos?

Happens all the time. It's amazing how many directors came up from music videos, commercials, and web series. It's a great way to get some new, young talent into Hollywood.

This could be cool. I had a friend that actually had to do that for her job. Go back to school and report what was happening from a fashion and trend perspective. She had great stories!
