Bob Odenkirk Will Write and Act for the 'Troll 2' Kid

Over a decade since Run Ronnie Run! left audiences and the writers themselves a little disappointed in what a Mr. Show movie ended up being, Bob Odenkirk is going to give feature film writing another shot with Girlfriend's Day.

They're said to be looking at a fall production start in L.A., and, incidentally, the perfect sentiment for Girlfriend's Day is: "For me, every day is Girlfriend's Day with a girlfriend like you, and that's why I will never marry you."
