The Stars Line Up for New Beastie Boys Short Film by Adam Welsh

The short film is a sequel to the classic "Fight for Your Right" video, and it debuts this Thursday at Sundance.  From Pitchfork...

According to IMDB, the Beasties themselves will be played by two different sets of celebrities. In the photo above , we see Seth Rogen as Mike D, Elijah Wood as the King Ad-Rock, and Danny McBride as MCA. There's also another set of Beasties in the film: John C. Reilly as Mike D, Will Ferrell as the King Ad-Rock, and Jack Black as MCA. We also get Susan Sarandon as "mother", Stanley Tucci as "father", David Cross in the role of Yauch's occasional filmmaking alter-ego Nathaniel Hornblower, Orlando Bloom as the Paul's Boutique homeless-dude character Johnny Ryall, and Clint Caluory as "Zach Galifianakis as George Drakoulias," which doesn't make any sense.

Other guests include Jason Schwartzman, Kirsten Dunst, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Steve Buscemi, Rainn Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Ted Danson, and Alicia Silverstone to name a few.  I can't wait for this to hit the intertubes.
