We've most recently seen Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak in the Jobs trailer but now he's taken on another big name in entertainment history, Sam Kinison.

The film, which is to be directed by Larry Charles (who directed both Borat and The Dictator), is said to follow the portion of Sam Kinison's life where he made the move from preacher to standup comedian.

The movie is titled Kinison and is based off Bill Kinison's book, Brother Sam. Sam Kinison died in 1992 in a car wreck at the age of 38.
