Actors becoming musicians can be a dangerous thing. Especially in the case of The Office star and mega Blitzen Trapper fan Rainn Wilson.
In Blitzen Trapper Massacre, a new short written, produced and directed by the actor, he stars as himself, a hardcore and rather delusional fanatic of the Portland-based indie folk band. Appearing at their El Rey Theatre gig in California, Wilson approaches the band with the idea that he will join them on stage for their performance (not to mention, some great jokes about their name). Taking the rejection poorly, Wilson then begins a murder spree, wiping out all the members to become Blitzen Trapper and even perform a competent version of their song “Furr.”
