The ScreenJunkies.com, while meeting with three actors from the upcoming film “Seven Psychopaths,” managed to convince a game Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell to play Georgia’s hottest reality stars Mama and Honey Boo Boo respectively. (Colin Farrell bowed out.)
I doubt either actor knows who these country folk are or have even seen an episode. But it’s amusing, nonetheless, because any line readings by Walken are amusing, as anybody who has seen him on “Saturday Night Live” can attest:
