With Super Troopers 2 in production since last week, it seems they have some room for a new cast member. Fresh out of the Comedy Central Roast char-griller, Rob Lowe has joined the cast of the film ready to serve up some Canadian border patrol antics...
Following their very successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, the Broken Lizard guys have begun filming Super Troopers 2, the sequel to their cult hit comedy from 2002. Jay Chandrasekhar is directing (and starring) once again, with Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Erik Stolhanske and Paul Soter all reprising their roles as those silly state troopers. The first set photos feature the cast, some infamous mustaches and a very familiar vehicle.
The men of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske — have been together since 1990, when they met and began performing together at Colgate University. They toured their first film, Puddle Cruiser, around the country (I remember when they came to my school with it in the fall of 1998), and its indie success led to their first breakout hit: Super Troopers, about the misadventures of a bunch of small-town cops. Broken Lizard went on to produce three more features, but none matched the profile and cult status of Super Troopers. Perhaps that’s why they’re now at work on a Super Troopers 2 — and why they’ve taken to crowdfunding the film on the fundraising website Indiegogo.

The film steadily became a cult favorite and by the later half of the decade, you couldn't even walk into a college dorm room without tripping over a copy of the DVD. Although the Broken Lizard comedy troupe has gone on to make other movies with mixed success, fans have been eagerly anticipating
'Super Troopers 2' has been put off for a while, but is now on its way to the big screen, says Broken Lizard's Kevin Heffernan in an interview with GuySpeed. You know what that means, right? More shenanigans!
