Pierce is supposed to be an Icelander too (and supposedly the most handsome man in Iceland too lol). Apparently their character names are supposed to be Lars Ericksson (Will), Sigrid Ericksdottir (Rachel) and Erick Ericksson (Pierce) none of which are actual Icelandic names so.. lol.

I'm guessing that they want to have their protagonists be a 'small' Eurovision country so they can seem like underdogs, they want it to be Scandinavian because that both fits with the 'typically Eurovision' sort of thing but is also more relatable to their American audience than a Slavic nation would be, leaving Iceland as the only choice, the other 4 Nordics have too many people to be underdogs.

But the proper Icelandic version of the name (Eirikur?) sounds too weird to be believably a name usable in a mainstream television production (especially for that 'oh so hilarious his name's the same as his surname' character). So they figure their audience isn't going to care and go with the more 'normal' version of Eric, but with the 'k' so it looks foreign enough.

Signs are not looking good.

What did the gays do to deserve Will Ferrell writing and starring in a Eurovision film?

Everyone involved in this should be locked in a deep dark bunker in The Hague for crimes against humanity.

Demi Lovato and Dan Stevens have now joined the cast.

Lovato will play Katiana, “one of the best and most angelic singers in all of Iceland". (will need a lot of acting for that role then x)

Stevens will play Alexander Lemtov, a Russian contestant.

This has to be good now. Please laugh.gif

Filming wrapped earlier this year, so Netflix would be wise to try and release it in May if it's ready!

Been given a June 26th release date. Strange that it's being released just over a month after the scheduled date of the contest and isn't capitalising on the buzz with the shows taking place this week.
