The first trailer for THE ROCKER was just posted over at Yahoo! Movies, and it's definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a glimpse of the "wilder" side of Dunder Mifflin's favorite beet farmer.

I dunno... looks like it could go either way, as the trailer seems heavy on "getting hit in the nuts" and "falling off stuff" jokes.  Not exactly subtle... but then, when is rock ever subtle? In the plus column, one of the writers is listed as Wallace Wolodarsky, a verteran writer on THE SIMPSONS (you know, from the GOOD seasons before it jumped the shark...?).

If you're unfamiliar with THE ROCKER, allow Yahoo! Movies to elucidate:

A failed drummer is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman (Rainn Wilson) is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock n' roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew's high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the rock God throne he's always thought he deserved, and taking the young band along for the ride of their lives.

THE ROCKER is set for an August 1st release.
