Lebron James has big plans for a “Trainwreck” sequel. They just don’t include costar Bill Hader. They may not include director Judd Apatow.
In this Funny or Die video, a visit to James in Akron, Ohio, for a local premiere takes a dark turn when the Cleveland Cavalier suggests that Hader’s character die early in the next film, with Amy Schumer then turning to James for a shoulder to cry on.
Schumer loves the idea. Apatow’s mostly on board until James suggests that he — James — direct the sequel instead of Apatow, perhaps employing a “Birdman”-style single take.
By the end, a rattled Hader tumbles onto the pavement — which gives James an even better idea … of how to get rid of Hader in the script.
