Thomas Lennon can currently be seen making naked love to a photocopy machine in Bad Teacher opposite Cameron Diaz. While he has made a career out of hilarious comedic roles such as Lt. Dangle on Reno 911! and various supporting appearances in too many films to count, his first passion is screenwriting. He and his screenwriting partner Robert Ben Garant are responsible for the scripts to Night at the Museum and its sequel, the ping pong epic Balls of Fury, and Herbie: Fully Loaded. Together, they have penned the how-to epic Writing Movies for Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at the Box Office and You Can, Too!, which is now available at retailers nationwide. We recently caught up with Thomas to chat about both the book and his quick appearance in Bad Teacher. Click on the clip below for our exclusive interview.
