Interview: ‘Erik Stolhanske’ Talks His New Movie RockBarnes: The Emperor in You, Broken Lizard And Super Troopers

Erik Stolhanske is an actor, writer, producer, and member of the comedy group Broken Lizard, probably best known for his role as “Rabbit” in the hit comedy Super Troopers. Stolhanske has written, produced and starred in all of Broken Lizards’ films – including Puddle Cruiser, Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest, and The Slammin’ Salmon.

Stolhanske also appears in The Onion Movie, The Sweetest Thing and Watching the Detectives. On television, Erik has been on the HBO critically acclaimed series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Six Feet Under” as well as on the Comedy Central special “Broken Lizard Stands Up.” You can listen to the interview below.

Freestyle Digital Media, an on demand and theatrical distribution division of Byron Allen’s global media company Entertainment Studios, has secured rights for ROCKBARNES: THE EMPEROR IN YOU, from the mind of Writer/Director Ben McMillan who makes his feature film debut with the title. The comedy styled as a mockumentary will be released wide on demand July 3.

Broken Lizard player Erik Stolhanske (Super Troopers, Super Troopers 2, Beerfest) stars as the titular guru alongside Madisen Beaty (“The Fosters), Chad Michael Collins (“Extinct”), Joe Hursley (Espionage Tonight), Erin Cardillo (“Passions”), Jack Plotnick (“Grace & Frankie”), Ethan Phillips (“Star Trek: Voyager”), Sonya Eddy (“General Hospital”) and James Grace (Super Troopers).

Stolhanske delivers an award-winning performance as narcissistic self-help guru “RockBarnes.” This mockumentary follows the illustrious RockBarnes as he hires a movie crew to go on tour with him and record his greatness for the world to see. But when things go awry, and his world starts crumbling all around him, RockBarnes does what any egotistical anti-hero would do: he fires the director, holds the camera crew hostage, and goes about making an epic opus of grandiose delusions.
