Excerpt:In the 1980s, one of the most famous and loudest comedians in the business was Sam Kinison. Kinison's famous scream and outrageous style made him a household name before his death in 1992. Now HBO is set to honor and deconstruct Kinison's life in a made-for-TV biopic, which is now moving forward with an actor to impersonate Kinison's yells, according to the New York Times.
Dan Fogler, who has been in a few B-movie comedies in the last few years, has signed on to play Kinison in HBO's Brother Sam. The movie is based on the memoirs of Kinison's brother Bill, who chronicled Kinison's life and death.
