The Rocker is a comedy which came out August 20th 2008. It stars Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate, Teddy Geiger, Will Arnett, and Bradley Cooper. The story of a failed, over-the-hill drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman (Rainn Wilson) is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate (not to mention sweaty) drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius who is living the rock and roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Unfortunately for Fish, this happens right before Vesuvius becomes one of the biggest bands in the world. Fish is then forced to get a real job and abandon his dream until an unlikely opportunity arises. Twenty years after getting booted out of the band he helped create, just when Fish has finally given up hope, all of his wildest fantasies come true.
