[Trailer Park Boys take on new role]

In addition to his recent role in Suck, Alex Lifeson also has a cameo in the latest Trailer Park Boys movie - Countdown to Liquor Day - which premiered at the Atlantic Film Festival last Friday. The movie opens for theatrical release in Canada tomorrow. Alex plays a cross-dressing cop in the film as he described in a recent Prog interview. Lerxst also had a cameo as a cop in the first Trailer Park Boys movie and was heavily involved with the soundtrack for that film. This film is apparently the end of the road for The Trailer Park Boys. The trio discussed the movie and their future plans in this JAM! interview, including yet another possible Alex Lifeson collaboration:

So what's next for the boys?

How about a series called The Drunk And On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour?

The pilot -- "about a kids' show gone horribly wrong" -- is to shoot in the spring with, yes, Alex Lifeson in the cast.

As well, Tremblay, Wells and Smith say they're set to play six different roles each, "with a lot of heavy prosthetics," Tremblay said. ...

Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up. Here's the film's trailer:
