Chris Farley, in my opinion, is one of the greatest comedic actors of all time. Anybody who has ever struggled with how they view themselves physically can understand the struggles that Chris Farley endured during his long career, especially when the comedy was on his physical appearance's behalf.

Chris Farley was way more than a fall guy, as towards the end of his career he was preparing to take on the role of Shrek. Sadly, Chris Farley passed away and the job went to Mike Myers. But a Michigan actor Paul Walter Hauser is getting his chance to portray Chris Farley in possibly, a new light and shed some of that light onto the person he really was in an upcoming biopic.

Hauser will portray Chris Farley in a film that’s going to be filmed soon. The good news is the movie will have a scent of good taste as it’s being produced by Lorne Michaels, who founded and produces Saturday Night Live and was very close to Chris.

Chris Farley In Michigan

Chris Farley doesn’t have many Michigan roots except for when he was Tom Arnold‘s best man for his wedding that took place in Dearborn, Michigan in 1995, a picture of Chris signing Arnold’s Ketubah shared by Tom Arnold’s Twitter a few years back.
It’s great a Michigan-born actor will get the chance to express his respect and love for an amazing actor who left us so early. Hauser has been making a big name for himself, most recently taking on pro wrestling and for his role in Cobra Kai.
