Bo Burnham Heads to Hollywood

1/08/2009 12:16:00 AM
Remember my post from almost a year ago about Bo Burnham (here)? Well according to the Globe, he's done fairly well for himself over the last twelve months.

Bo Burnham's never been better. The Hamilton homey whose humorous, homemade music videos made him a YouTube sensation has scored a movie deal. Burnham, who graduated from St. John's Prep in Danvers last spring, has been enlisted by none other than Judd Apatow to write a script for what's billed as an anti-"High School Musical" film. (Apatow, of course, is the brains behind "Knocked Up" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin.") Burnham, who's described his vids as "pubescent musical comedy," will have a half-hour show on Comedy Central in March and also a CD. His rep told us yesterday that Burnham recently finished filming "Virgin on Bourbon Street" with Rob Schneider and is now in LA shooting a small part in Adam Sandler's upcoming film "Funny People."

Congrats to Bo! I enjoyed his youtube videos back then, I'm interested to see what he comes up with now that he's got folks like Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler helping him out.

    Unrelated to the post, but looks like the Boston has started attracting movies from the largest movie production area in the world. First Bollywood movie set to film in Boston soon.
