Robin Williams has been hurting for a comedic hit. Though I don't think Man of the Year will be his salvation, at least he is still trying.

Man of the Year Poster, Trailer, Clips and Synopsis

What would happen if one of the nation's funniest men became its leading one? Oscar® winner Robin Williams reunites with the director of Good Morning, Vietnam to answer just that question in the comic tale of an entertainer's accidental rise to power, Man of the Year.

Acerbic performer Tom Dobbs (Robin Williams) has made his career out of skewering politicians and speaking the mind of the exasperated nation on his talk show. He cracked scathing jokes at a fractured system night after night...until he came up with a really funny idea: why not run for president himself?

After a flip comment, Dobbs ignites a grassroots movement that puts him on the ballot. Hot on the campaign trail, he debates elected drones and says exactly what frustrated voters have often thought. Nov. 2nd later, the muckraker wins--only to learn that a computer voting error gave him the victory. With time ticking on the inaugural clock, Dobbs has a big decision to make: should he go back behind the mike or stay in the Oval Office?

This election season, comic actors including Laura Linney, Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum and Lewis Black join Williams in a pulled-from-the-headlines comedy. Together with Oscar® winner Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Wag the Dog), they'll show the world that--only in America--a comedian can become the country's next president and our Man of the Year.

Man of the Year opens to theatres on October 13th.
