Paul Walter Hauser's Chris Farley biopic dreams have 'a very small window'

Nothing has changed in 2021, as the 34-year-old actor shared in a new interview with Brian Davids for The Hollywood Reporter. "I wanted to do a Chris Farley movie where he’s in rehab for half of the film, and for the other half of the movie, he’s doing his SNL stuff and his movies. I think I have a really great take on that story, but I’m trying to lose weight and I’m trying to redefine myself as a person of healthy choice-making, and as an actor. So the days of doing Fatty Arbuckle, Chris Farley or Ignatius J. Reilly in a Confederacy of Dunces movie have a very small time window, and it’s getting smaller by the week.”

When Shrek was released back in May of 2001, few could have predicted how big of a smash hit the tale about a big, green grumpy ogre discovering his inner prince would eventually become.
