Oh brother! Clinton inks for part in ‘Resort’

Bill Clinton’s brother Roger Clinton has signed on to “National Lampoon’s Last Resort” to play Gino, a none-too-bright hulk of a brute with a soft spot.

Yarn centers around Sam and Dave (Corey Feldman and Corey Haim) who are summoned to Treasure Island to save it from an evil villain.

They pose as CIA agents and scuba instructors and face off with everything from a wisecracking mermaid to a pink-clad poodle.

Clinton reportedly has a small part so he’ll only be involved in the shoot for a day. Otherwise, the president’s half-brother is trying to establish a music career, having performed with his band at one of the inauguration balls and recently signing a recording contract with Atlantic Records.

Cameras are set to roll in Southern California on the Lampoon film, which is a direct-to-homevid pic budgeted around $ 5 million. Trimark Pictures has video distrib rights domestically and 21st Century Film Corp. picked up all international homevid rights.

The “Last Resort” is a co-production between Amritraj Entertainment and Toronto-based Rose & Ruby Prods. They licensed the Lampoon name from J2 Communications, which owns the rights to National Lampoon titles.

Producer Ashok Amritraj said he is “very excited to have Roger join the film. Roger’s talent and enthusiasm can only add to the success of this project.”
