Ted Haggard To Make Cameo In Pro-Abstinence Christian Sex Comedy


Based on the preview, Haggard's cameo takes place at a coffee shop, where Jack is questioning his abstinence: "I'm so frustrated. You know, I'm just going to do what I want to do anyway, it's not like it's going to wind up on the front page of the newspaper." Haggard leans over and quips: "Hey buddy, I wouldn't do that if I were you."

The movie appears to be basically a low-budget, Christian-themed knock-off of The 40 Year-Old Virgin, but likely even worse than it sounds (sample dialogue: Jack: " I just don't know if I want to save myself anymore." Jack's friend: "That's the problem Jack, you can't save yourself.").

Here's the preview:

Rich Praytor, one of the producers, acknowledged the similarities between The Waiting Game and Virgin. "I love all the Judd Apatow movies -- '40 Year Old Virgin,' 'Knocked Up,' 'Superbad' -- they're all great," he told the Colarado Springs Gazette. "So we wanted to take something like that into the Christian arena."

"They're just starving for anything comedy," Emilio Martinez, another writer/producer, said.

Candace Cameron, of Full House fame, is also attached to the project as Jack's love interest.

Praytor and Martinez are looking to raise $2 million, so they can start filming in Colorado Springs September 1st of this year.
