Montana Native Lands Role Opposite David Spade in "Joe Dirt 2"
By: Erica Ibsen
"I was a huge fan of Spade's 1996 comedy "Black Sheep" (which also stars the late comedian Chris Farley), so earning a chance to work alongside David Spade and writer/director Fred Wolf was an absolute dream come true."
When asked about working with director Wolf, Ibsen said "He is great! I had no idea until I was auditioning, but Fred actually went to Montana State, so it was fun to do a little Brawl of the Wild trash-talking on set. I brought him some Montana huckleberry candy to ease the pain of this year's Bobcat loss."
On working with Spade, Ibsen said "It was nearly impossible to keep a straight face while looking at David. I thought I was going to break character every time."
Ibsen has landed major supporting roles in two additional independent feature films in 2014, and is represented by Matt Prater at Dedicated Talent Management in Los Angeles.
JOE DIRT 2 is scheduled to release on Sony's online network (Crackle) in 2015.
