Big Boy: The Radio Personality, The Actor…The AUTHOR and PRODUCER?!?
That’s right, there’s no stopping Curtis “Big Boy” Anderson whether it’s pranking people on the radio or making moves on the big screen. This time he does it via paperback. Big Boy’s book, “An XL Life: Staying Big at Half Your Size,” is an inside look on the celebrity’s claim to fame. He gives readers the rundown on where he grew up and how he got big, literally. His weight topped 510 pounds when he realized he needed to make some serious life changes in order to stay on top to pursue his dreams.(Million-dollar actor Will Smith bet him $1000 per pound he lost and would donate it to charity. The charity was awarded $111,000.) Big Boy says that he’s always wanted to do movies and turning the 2007 webisode “Exit Strategy” into a film featuring Kevin Hart gave him the opportunity to be the executive producer. The movie, in Big Boy’s words, is an “un-romantic comedy.” Check out the trailer here and you’ll see why! “Exit Strategy” is now playing in select theaters nationwide.
