Check Out Blake Shelton’s Movie Acting Debut in ‘Ridiculous 6′ Trailer
Blake Shelton's resume is getting longer and longer. The singer, comedian and coach of The Voice will try out his acting skills in a new Netflix film called The Ridiculous 6.
Written and produced by Adam Sandler, The Ridiculous 6 cast was announced in January. A western spoof, the film finds a band of six brothers wreaking havoc in town and robbing people blind.
In the two-minute trailer, Shelton plays lawman Wyatt Earp and laments on how he can't ride anywhere without coming across outlaws and Indians. The trailer's caption of the film explains how Sandler, who plays Tommy "White Knife" Stockburn, goes on an "an adventure-filled journey across the Old West with his five brothers" after his long-lost outlaw father returns.
The lengthy cast includes Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, Dan Akroyd, Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford from Breaking Bad.
The film has been plagued with controversy for its treatment of Native Americans in its script. According to Rolling Stone, a dozen Native Americans walked off the set after they found the script offensive, as character names included Wears No Bra and Beaver Breath. Meanwhile, others stuck up for the film's writing.
Actor Bonifacio Gurule told KOAT 7 in Albuquerque that people should "lighten up." "It's a comedy, not a documentary," he added.
The Ridiculous 6 will premiere on Netflix on Dec. 11.
