Competitive eating themed play to open describes the plot of “Deep Fried Cheese”, a new play to open in San Francisco next month:

Ingersoll-Thorp wrote the play, a comedy about relationships and competitive eating, and also directs it. Kalish stars as a guy whose penchant for entering eating contests doesn’t sit all that well with his girlfriend, who is going vegan.

“I think Tore wrote this play to torture me,” Kalish says. “I eat a bunch of hot dogs really fast, and spaghetti. I also catch Vienna sausages in my mouth and spray Cheez Whiz into my mouth. I wrap an Oreo in salami. It’s pretty intense. Eating hot dogs fast is disgusting.”

But Kalish is quick to point out that amid the spectacle of all this eating is a romantic comedy with a “strong emotional center.”

    I’ll take my exact double, George Clooney, to play my non-speaking, standing around in the background, joking part.
    Other parts: Jackie Chan can be Kobayashi, Weird Al Jankovic can be Crazy Legs, Lucy Lui as Sonya, Woody Allen as Rich Lefevre, Van Earl Wright as George Shea, Ving Ryhmes as Badlands Booker, Toby McGuire as Seaver Miller, and I need some help here…this was all of 22 seconds worth of casting.

    Pretty good SuperPaul… but Ving Ryhmes for Badlands Booker.. they kind of have slightly different physiques. Lets keep it real here. I was thinking Jerod Mixon from the movie Old School. If you don’t know who I am refering to then you haven’t seen the movie.
