First things first: Pitch Perfect Movie Trailer
Adam DeVine (or Demamp as you may know him) is the first of the Workaholics to make the big screen in a starring role. Adam starred as Bumper in the film Pitch Perfect that was released September 28, 2012. The movie is a musical comedy centered around a college girl and her all female a cappella group as they compete against their rivals, The Treble Makers, lead by Bumper. Meet Adam’s character and get a laugh here.
Adam’s character is the intense leader of the all male a cappella group who secretly likes a member of their rival group (“Fat Amy” played by Rebel Wilson). Although I have never seen the movie, after watching a few trailers and short clips I probably wouldn’t mind checking it out. Bumper’s personality, from what I’ve seen, actually resembles his character in Workaholics a good bit. He still has that sarcastic, in your face, and funny personality that he portrays in Workaholics in the movie.

With the break in production for Workaholics from season 2 to 3, Adam was lucky enough to take this role in the movie. Hopefully the move to the big screen will become a big boost for the entire Workaholics casts’ family, leading to greater popularity and future ratings increase. The show is slowly gaining popularity so who knows…is syndication a possibility? I would probably guess no, but we can all dream. As we speak Workaholics has aired 30 episodes (10 per season) with 10 more on the way for season 4 due to air in early January 2013.
Adam isn’t the only Workaholic on the big screen either. Blake Anderson (Blake Henderson in the show) is also contributing on a film as well. His voice will be used for the character Dagda in 20th Century Fox’s new animated film Epic due out May 24, 2013. The voice-over casts also includes stars such as Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrel, Jason Sudeikis, and Aziz Ansari to name a few. You can watch the trailer here.
