Macy hit the road in this rollicking comedy-adventure about a group of middle-aged friends who decide to rev up their routine suburban lives with a freewheeling motorcycle trip.

Does the thought of John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy on motorcycles make you smile? Do you enjoy the thought of seeing all these men clad and leather and cruising the open road? If so then you're going to love these clips from Wild Hogs.
A mismatched group of bored suburbanites longing to escape the stress of their daily lives and embrace the freedom of the open road finds that it takes more than polished chrome and leather jackets to truly experience the biker lifestyle in this revved-up road comedy starring John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy. Upon trading the comfort of their couches for the thunderous rumble of two-wheeled street machines, these four adventurous riders cross paths with the notorious Del Fuegos -- an authentic biker gang that doesn't take kindly to the weekend warrior type.Read More
In a movie with some major stars, Wild Hogs has a stand out cameo role from Kyle Gass - better known as Jack Black's other half of Tenacious D. He plays a karaoke performer at the small town where John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy hang out on their motorcycle road trip across the country.
Kyle, I first have to say, when I saw you on screen; I almost didn't recognize you, I really didn't realize it was you. I had to wait until the credits rolled to confirm I was right.Read More
Travolta is known as a great dancer. His films Saturday Night Fever, Grease and Urban Cowboy have shown off his varied dancing abilities, and he was chosen to dance with Princess Diana on one of her visits to the United States. In Wild Hogs Travolta briefly dances. Actually, he gives William H. Macy's character a brief dance lesson. "The dancing was in the screenplay. We modified it, and made it more about Bill's dance with Marissa [Tomei]... We actually removed a lot of what they wanted me to do, because I thought it was a little arbitrary. So, basically I said I would teach and let him go do his thing," he says, magnanimously giving the big dancing scene to Macy.
John Travolta first caught the public's eye in the 1970's TV series "Welcome Back Kotter," and since then he's been lighting up the silver screen with both his dramatic and comedic abilities - and winning the recognition of his peers. "I'm very proud of the Academy and the experience. I love giving out awards, and I love being nominated for them. It's a pinnacle in your work, where you're recognized. I think it's a great part of your career to be involved in. So I take great pride in it." He was nominated for his roles in Pulp Fiction, Saturday Night Fever, and Get Shorty, for which he won the Golden Globe.Read More
