Seth Rogan Animates Graham Roumieu's "Bigfoot"

If Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot was announcing this, it would look like the above picture.
If you are unfamiliar with Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot, you are missing out on several belly aches. His two books, In Me Own Words: The Autobiography of BigfootMe Write Book: It Bigfoot Memoir, and Bigfoot: I Not Dead. Click the following link to read our complete coverage of Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot.

Roumieu, whose illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Progressive, reveals the hairy hominids's brave struggles with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, and philosophical quandaries ("Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, like Bigfoot screenwriting career."). 

Recently it has been announced that these hilarious quips and quandaries will be translated into an animated series on FX. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and "American Dad" writer Matt McKenna is on board to develop the project.

Read the announcement from The Hollywood Reporter below:

FX is looking for Bigfoot.

FX Announces New Network to Launch in September

The cable network is developing an animated comedy based on the faux autobiography books by Graham Roumieu, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

From FX Productions, Bigfoot is an adaption of Roumieu's comedic works In Me Own Words, Me Write Book and I Not Dead and follows Bigfoot, who is described as a bipolar hopeless romantic who lacks the ability to properly express himself, living in both the human and animal world of Pine Falls but not quite fitting in to either one.

American Dad writer/supervising producer Matt McKenna will write and executive produce the project. Point Grey Pictures' Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg also are on board to serve as EPs. The Jimmy Miller Co. and Floyd County Productions also will executive produce alongside Roumieu.

For FX, should the project move forward, it would join a roster that includes Archer and Unsupervised -- which also hail from Floyd County Productions.

The news comes as FX is preparing to launch comedy-themed offshoot network FXX, which will house half-hours including It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit, when it bows in September.

It's too early to say whether Bigfoot will air on FX or FXX.

Horacio Sanz of SNL follows Bigfoot on Twitter

on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon a very Bill Richardson–looking Horacio Sanz discusses what it's like to follow Bigfoot on Twitter.

We can only assume he means the tweets of Graham Roumieu from the hilarious "Bigfoot, I Not Dead" fame. He tweets for Bigfoot under the pseudonym @hellobigfoot

Its about a minute and 13 seconds into the video.

Bigfoot's 3rd Book

You may remember my post on Bigfoot's Autobiography, well I am happy to say there has been a third installment and our friend Bigfoot is as prolific as ever.

In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to Me Write Book, Bigfoot returns from exile to share his inspiring, hilarious, and often deeply disturbing experiences as a misunderstood forest gentleman and tragic media darling.

These entertaining and often grizzly stories stand not only as a testament to the greatness of the legendary man-beast, but also as a chilling cautionary tale of the downside of a life of celebrity, cannibalism, celebrity cannibalism, wanton violence, and lack of toilet training. As in Me Write Book, full-color glossy spreads depict every intimate, disgusting, and downright insane moment of Bigfoot's life.

Bigfoot: I Not Dead is an unforgettable memoir that will stay with readers long after his foul scent has dissipated.

Here is an interview with Bigfoot from
This month marks the release of the third book in a series of collaborative memoirs by Bigfoot and Walrus contributing illustrator Graham Roumieu. Bigfoot: I Not Dead is a tender yet violent addition to Bigfoot’s ongoing self-exploration project, sure to please both fans of his previous work and those who aren’t yet familiar with him but enjoy furry creatures, mutilation, poetry, existential anxiety, and/or hard-learned life lessons.

Readers in Toronto should be sure to attend the book’s launch, which takes place Thursday night at the Gladstone Hotel as part of Pages Books’ “This Is Not a Reading Series.” Michael Winter, Nathan Whitlock, Douglas Bell, The Walrus’s own Jeremy Keehn, and others will speak about what Bigfoot means to them. Second floor, 7.30pm, free.

I reached Bigfoot last week at his home in the woods.

How has your life changed since your first book came out?
Bigfoot hang dirty laundry on line for all to see. Some things just needed be aired out on wind of disclosure. Others so heavy shit-encrusted that they fall off of line into mud and now scrutiny birds pick bits of corn out of it and neighbor steal and put on Ebay. Not totally regret writing books but wish sometime to go back to old technique of whisper secrets into hollow stump.

In your second book you noted that you had trouble talking to strangers and interacting in social settings. As you’ve become even more famous, has your social anxiety disorder eased, or are you still paralyzed with fear most of the time? If so, do you have any stress-reducing techniques that you’d like to share with our readers?

Some people when nervous in front of big crowd imagine audience naked. Bigfoot like imagine them cover in layer of fur. Used to imagine audience naked and dead but only creep Bigfoot out more and lead me to uncontrollable laughing and sobbing.

Really find no technique that work well for Bigfoot. No can trust human and animals. Always put on spot, want me tell funny story or smash things or want steal Bigfoot internal organ for dry and grind down and use in folk remedy tea. Bigfoot bit of introvert but still make effort go out and socialize. If conversation go bad always have last resort of smash bad person and flee into woods.

Some of your readers have noticed a new, darker component in your work. I’m thinking, for instance, of your sculptures, one of which recently featured a bleeding deer carcass in a flowerbed, adorned with a teddy bear, a thigh bone, two roses, a box of chocolates, and an engagement ring. You spelled out ‘Marry me’ in blood. (There was no question mark.) Is this a new element in your self-expression, or simply a more graphic manifestation of what we’ve seen so far?

No dark, just misunderstood and ahead of time. Bigfoot like working with hands. Very artistic. If Bryan Adams can make photo nice, why not Bigfoot make big blood and meat pile good too? You just afraid of what you no understand.

In your new book you offer the “Bigfoot Guide for Everything Ever Want Know About Forest Animal” in which you note that Leroy the grizzly bear is probably totally impotent, Bernard the beaver is an Al-Qaeda sleeper agent, and Mr. Miggins, who is some kind of weasel, is a pervert. What would that guide say about Bigfoot? And is it possible that by lashing out at your fellow forest creatures with simplistic definitions, you’re really trying to react against a world that has understood you simplistically? And if so, that’s a bit ironic, no?

I not understand question. Wait, are you calling Bigfoot stupid? Bigfoot only call it like he see it unlike this magazine where Bigfoot be make look stupid by get ask stupid question so magazine make look smart.

What’s next for you? Do you have any upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?

I am going to kill interview man.

Once again if you get the book get it at Powell's Books The largest Bookstore i the world.

This has got to be the funniest book in the world. BF fan or not, it is simply too funny. Graham Roumieu illustrator and author really finds a voice so compelling and consistant you begin to forget Bigfoot is a undiscovered hominid, instead believing him to be an everyday man, a 600-800lb hairy everyday man who hates Chewbacca.

Heres a few excerpts. This first one is titled

Stop, Smell Rose
Where You go, Man on Road?
Why You Run, When me want talk?
You manners bad, so me learn you good
Tear off legs
So no more run. :)

Another Excerpt...

"Me used to believe in good, now no more. World go sh**...just like Bigfoot screenwriting career"

Roumieu, whose illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Progressive, reveals the hairy hominids's brave struggles with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, and philosophical quandaries ("Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, like Bigfoot screenwriting career."). In a full-color graphic novel, Roumieu offers a portrait of the artist as a young ape that will leave the reader howling with laughter.
