PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA – (@The Comedy News) – Kim Jong-Un, heir to the North Korean Supreme Leadership throne, has kept quiet about his previous career as a Hollywood actor.
“Kim Jong-Un can neither confirm nor deny his role in the 2009 Oscar-nominated film, Up,” announced Kim’s publicist, William Morris.
Entertainment writers have long-speculated that Kim did indeed play a supporting role in the film Up as Russell, a portly, jovial young kid with father issues that latches onto a senile old man named Carl Fredrickson–played by former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.
According to IMDB.com, there is no listing for Kim Jong-Un’s brief acting career—most likely due to threats stemming from North Korean officials.
The rumor going around Hollywood has been that even though Kim’s late father, Kim Jong-Il threatened producers to cast his son in the film Up, he also required producers to expunge all records of his son acting in the film—promising a nuclear holocaust upon the Western Hemisphere for noncompliance—excluding Canada, though, because hockey and curling are now the fastest growing sports in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
