Watch James Murphy Pal Around With Tim & Eric in ‘The Comedy’

Since breaking up LCD Soundsystem James Murphy has stayed busy as the most interesting man alive, going on GQ party flights, releasing a documentary about LCD’s last days, and finding the time to open up for Deadmau5. His newest project may be the coolest one yet: a supporting role in The Comedy, starring Adult Swim acidheads Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame. According to the synopsis, Heidecker plays a guy who "whiles away his days with a group of aging Brooklyn hipsters, engaging in acts of recreational cruelty and pacified boredom." Ah, so it’s a documentary. After the click, you can watch a clip from the movie where Murphy makes an appearance.

While Murphy sits there in silence, Tim and Eric heckle the cabbie for all they’re worth, singing gibberish about wanting to listen to rap and not tipping. "I want some black muuuuusic," Tim sings over and over, like a total queef. In case you’re puzzled, Murphy talked to Vulture, explaining his decision to do the movie. "I liked Tim and Eric, and I was like, ‘It will take me four or five days to do something that will exist,’" he said. "I mean, if somebody told you that you could do something for four or five days and a movie would appear, you’d fucking do it. So I did it. And it was exciting. And doing the film, I’m not interested in a career path. I’m just interested in being like, ‘Okay, that’s an interesting project. I’ll do that.’" Fine by us. The Comedy doesn’t have a release date yet, but if you take a really great nap it’ll be here when you wake up.
