What happens if you take John Travolta, 90’s rap rock, Misery, and a grown out soul patch and put them in a blender? You get Moose, a semi-autobiographical movie about a crazed stalker (John) and his action hero target that’s loosely based on director Fred Durst’s own experience with a stalker. And yes, THAT Fred Durst. TMZ cornered John at a party and asked him about what he’s got coming up, and he took the opportunity to say that working with Fred Durst has been the best experience of his professional career. Again, yes! THAT Fred Durst!
Here’s John (who appears to have just woken up from a nap, or more aptly, hibernation) talking about how Fred Durst is the most generous and artistic director he’s ever worked with. And he’s worked with John Woo!
Poor John, all his head hair migrated to his face :(. But from the looks of it, it’s creeping it’s way back. John’s almost reached under-eye eyebrow territory with that beard.
Here’s Fred and John together at the clurb.
And here’s John on the set of Moose with (famed nookie hound Fred, behind).
Variety reports that Moose is loosely based on experiences Fred Durst had with a stalker “many years ago”. Yes, THAT Fred Durst! Here’s a synopsis.
Here’s Fred in action!
John Travolta makes some weird choices. Apparently, so does Fred Durst. According to Foreign Policy, Fred was (and possibly still is) a huge fan of Russia, wanted to get a Russian passport and expressed a desire to move to Crimea in 2015.

Now he’s a film director and is directing John Travolta in a crazy stalker movie and his entire Instagram feed is of classic station wagons.
Somebody please stop this crazy blender, I want to get off!
