Dane Cook Stars In Drama 'Answers To Nothing'

Dane Cook is proving that he's good for more than just a couple of laughs.

Coming off the heels of the announcement that the comic will be getting his own NBC show, now he is getting in touch with his serious side in the drama, "Answers to Nothing."

The story explores the dysfunction of a group of people who are all connected through a kidnapping. It's kind of like "Paris, Je T'aime" but way more bleak.

Directed by Matthew Leutwyler, Cook stars alongside Julie Benz, Zach Gilford and Elizabeth Mitchell.

Check out the new trailer below and tell us if you think the funny-guy can pull off his new serious role.

"Answers to Nothing" hits theaters Dec 2.
