National Lampoon + Kevin Dillon = A 300 Spoof

Remedial math.

It might look like random gibberish typed by monkeys, but National Lampoon's 301: The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Wallace Leonidas is actually the title of an upcoming movie. And Kevin Dillon will be starring in it.

Variety reports that Dillon, best known for his role as Johnny "Drama" Chase on HBO's Entourage, will be strapping on sandals and hoisting a sword as a "bumbling Spartan general who fails upward in his quest for greatness" in the National Lampoon film, which will spoof 300, Troy, Gladiator, and Braveheart. From the article:

Fans of "Entourage" will chuckle at Dillon's emergence as a period action hero, since his Johnny "Drama" Chase character found his early glory days starring in a short-lived cult series called "Viking Quest." Drama's frequent cries of his signature line "Victory!" are often replicated on ESPN's "SportsCenter" broadcasts, among other places.

"Kevin is perfect for this role," said Lampoon's Justin Kanew.


The report goes on to warn readers of further Lampoon projects in the pipeline, including National Lampoon's Bagboy, National Lampoon's Ratko, National Lampoon Presents the Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell, and November's Les Claypool-directed (and toplined) National Lampoon Presents Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo.
