Andrew Wilson Surfaces in ‘Whip It’ Trailer

We talked about the photos from Whip It a few days ago but today there’s a trailer available and even though I’m not the biggest Ellen Page fan this thing looks like a hoot. It’s almost “Juno meets Little Miss Sunshine” minus the pregnancy and adding roller derby.  Clearly Page’s character is the central role in this film, though the trailer does provide plenty of opportunities to see what Drew Barrymore and Kristen Wiig are up to. Unfortunately, there’s not much with Juliette Lewis’ character, though I suspect that will be the feature for the second trailer.

Of more interest here in Fratville is the return of Andrew Wilson to cinemas. In fact, Owen and Luke’s older brother gets off a funny line at the end of the trailer. We last saw Wilson in a cameo role in Idiocracy and in a supporting turn in Drew Barrymore’s Fever Pitch three years ago.  In fact, this is the fifth movie Wilson has appeared in also featuring Barrymore (including Never Been Kissed, Charlie’s Angel’s, Charlie’s Angel’s Full Throttle).  This outfit almost looks like Wilson’s ensemble from his last starring-turn in the little seen Church Ball.
