Well this is an unexpected pile-drive to the face...
...Shudder has announced today that Pro-Wrestler Chris Jericho will be co--hosting the premiere of season 2 of Joe Bob Briggs The Last Drive-In!
Said Jericho, “When Joe Bob Briggs asked me to come watch a movie featuring butt darts, brain sucking, backgammon for digits, a maniacal mini-Oates AND a dick dog, I said: what time and what trailer park!”
Butt darts? Brain sucking? Any guesses on what films we might be seeing that night, Mutant Fam?
Joe Bob Briggs also had this to say, “Chris Jericho is the most exciting wrestling personality to befriend horror since Rowdy Roddy Piper co-hosted 'They Live!' with me on TNT years ago...In fact, Jericho may be the most famous wrestler in the world right now, not to mention lead singer for a metal band that charted on Billboard with an anthem that thousands of arena fans know by heart. I’m gonna share the hosting chair with Chris so that he can go wild on a seventies horror classic he’s been crazy about since high school. He’s a world class athlete, podcaster, actor, musician—he’s really a one-man bundle of pop-culture fun—and on April 24th he’s gonna prove that he’s also a drive-in kind of guy.”
This is amazing news and should make for one hell of an entertaining night when season 2 of The Last Drive-In premieres on April 24th at 9pm ET via Shudder!
Until then, check out an announcement video which Jericho posted on his Twitter below!
