In an ironic twist, "Best Worst Movie," has achieved something "Troll 2" never did: critical acclaim. The award-wining documentary has helped turn George Hardy into a kind of cult celebrity. Now, "Troll 2: Part 2" is in development, giving the actors another chance at becoming a household names.
"I really don't feel like I'm a movie star. Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep...They're movie stars. I just live in a small town, I have a great family and a terrific dental practice. I'm just in this for the ride of it all," Hardy said. "You know I just think life's too short."
