Pauly Shore’s Whiskey Business Takes Him To The Country [VIDEO]


Rejoice!  Pauly Shore is alive and well and going country!  Pauly stars in a CMT movie airing for the first time on CMT this Sunday at 6pm.  Enjoy the sneak peek and read his interview with CMT.  What do you think?  Will you check this out?

Pauly Shore’s quirky style of comedy made him a favorite of the MTV generation in the late 1980s as an MTV VJ and hosting his own show Totally Pauly for four years. With a film career that took off in the ’90s with hits such as Encino Man, Son in Law, In the Army Now, Jury Duty and Bio-Dome, he was more recently featured in a recurring role in the HBO series, Entourage.

He’s excited about his current project, Whiskey Business, a CMT original movie co-starring John Schneider and Tanya Tucker. In the two-hour comedy, Shore portrays Nicky Ferelli, who runs away from his mob-tied family when he is wrongly accused of murder. He hides out in a small Southern town, making a new and unusual variety of moonshine while discovering that a country way of life could be the best thing that ever happened to him.

In an interview this week at CMT’s offices in Nashville, Shore talked about his latest role, working with co-stars John Schneider and Tanya Tucker and what he’s doing for the presidential elections. What is the movie Whiskey Business about?

Shore: I would have to say Whiskey Business is Son in Law meets Jersey Shore meets Cocktail. It’s got a lot of heart. It’s silly. I play a flair bartender, who is someone that is really good at mixing drinks.

John Schneider and Tanya Tucker are in the movie. What was it like working with them?

John, I probably met him in passing a while ago, but now I was able to spend some time with him. It’s interesting because he’s such a good actor and brought a very fun, kind of sarcastic, kind of comedic element to his character. Which, to me, was pleasantly surprising because I didn’t really know what he was going to do. And then Tanya Tucker was just spontaneous and crazy. I didn’t know what the hell was going to come out of her mouth. She was just having fun. She’s wild, and she was able to bring that side to the character.

What is it about a movie that makes you want to do it?

I would have to say everything from the top to the bottom — who is producing it, who is directing it, the script, who’s putting it out — has a lot to do with it. The main thing is the script and then everything else, like the other actors and stuff like that.
