Neil Patrick Harris, Team Zissou, and other awesome Hollywood interns

June 7th, 2013 by Rick Marshall · No Comments ·

I didn’t get a chance to actually see Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn’s new comedy “The Internship,” but I did get a chance to write a fun list of memorable interns from movies.

In addition to showcasing the great unpaid interns of Team Zissou (from “The Life Aquatic”), I dug up this gem featuring Neil Patrick Harris’ turn as an intern who doesn’t take kindly to being called a sissy:

Lance (Undercover Brother)

You’re totally forgiven for skipping this 2002 comedy that starred Eddie Griffin as a secret agent fighting “The Man,” but Neil Patrick Harris’ role as intern Lance, the only nonblack member of the good guys’ team, B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., is the sort of cameo that transcends even the worst movie. Pushed to the brink when an unsuspecting thug calls him a sissy, the otherwise unassuming intern turns into a killing machine that, well… you have to see the results for yourself.

You can read the rest of the list at Movies.com, but I can’t help loving the “Ricki-Oh”-esque insanity happening in that clip. It’s amazing.
