Fame does different things to certain people. Some relish in the lights and the madness whilst other cannot cope with the sudden thrust into the limelight. Others do not adapt well and many stars succumb to the world of celebrity in awful ways. Arguably, the world of comedy is a difficult as people expect you to be funny all the time, which would eventually take its toll when people refused to see you as human.
Chris Farley is one of those icons whose death came too soon, too sudden and very tragically. Told through the people who knew him and archive footage of his work, the new documentary I Am Chris Farley tells the story of his legend as passionately as possible. Featuring Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Jon Lovitz, Lorne Michaels, Jay Mohr, Molly Shannon, Bob Odenkirk, Bob Saget, David Spade and Christina Applegate as well as his brother John, this looks to be an incredible astute documentary about his work. Sure enough, his legendary work will and the loss of his life due to a drug overdose will prompt a lot of emotions.
I Am Chris Farley has no release date in the UK at this moment.
