*The recent New York governor’s race definitely won the attention of America.

If you remember the “Rent is too damn high” campaign, Jimmy McMillan not only made us laugh, but he also made us think about our own realities that need to be addressed in the big house.

At any rate, the Colonel Sanders look-a-like, with a tan, is on to a new venture – the big screen.

The gubernatorial candidate inspired a Funny or Die video, an album, and a Saturday Night Live sketch. Now he’s about to star in a film called, “DAMN!”

Filmmakers Aaron Fisher-Cohen and Kristan Almgren, were inspired by the unorthodox political candidate and received funding over the holiday to finish up the film. Look for it to be released at the SXSW music and film festival next March.
