Pauly Shore Takes On Role Of Richard Simmons In Biopic, But Fitness Icon Distances Himself From The Project

Big news in Hollywood! Pauly Shore is gearing up to portray fitness icon Richard Simmons in an upcoming biopic, with the project currently in development at the Wolper Organization.

Before the main feature hits the screens, Shore will be making an appearance as Simmons in a short film titled “The Court Jester.” This short, directed by Jake Lewis, will be showcased at the Sundance Film Festival, although it’s not part of the festival’s official lineup.

Interestingly, the idea for this project sparked from a viral meme that pointed out the uncanny resemblance between Simmons and Shore. Last year, Shore expressed his interest in playing Simmons in a biopic, actively trying to reach out to the fitness guru. Via social media, he shared, “I’ve noticed all the reactions to me playing Richard Simmons in a new biopic. I heard he’s living deep in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he still has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen for you guys. Be optimistic.”

Excitement Around Richard Simmons Biopic

Excitement surrounds the upcoming biopic, as Shore is eager to bring Richard Simmons’ life to the big screen. In a statement, Pauly expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “I’m really excited about sharing Richard Simmons’ life with the world. We all need this biopic now more than ever. Simmons represented mental health, getting people in shape, and being his authentic silly self! Whenever he was on TV you could never take your eyes off of him, and he brought such joy to his appearances that represented nothing but a good time.” Get ready for a mix of inspiration and humor as Pauly takes on this iconic role!
