Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero :- Watch Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero on Youtube on Fire, Unfortunately, this potent brand of comedy does not translate well to the screen. In his feature film writing debut, “Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero,” Jobrani stars as an inept Iranian traffic cop who wins a green card lottery, moving from Tehran to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a private investigator. But while celebrating, he accidentally lights an American flag on fire. Later, after a bout of air turbulence during the flight to the United States, he screams, “Allahu akhbar” (Arabic for “God is great”). Predictably, this outburst lands him in a tiny interrogation room, where a customs official obscenely mispronounces his name, Jamshid Fakhredinpour. Iranian-American comedian Maz Jobrani has built his stand-up career by mining Western misconceptions and fears about Middle-Eastern culture. His laugh lines deliver catharsis: They disarm as they unite. Because it’s funny: The trailer for Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero, about an Iranian man who wins the Green Card lottery and moves to America and which stars Maz Jobrani and John Heard, actually looks a lot better than some of the mainstream comedies the studios have been churning out. Jobrani, who is the author of I’m Not A Terrorist, But I’ve Played One On TV and also has a stand-up comedy special of the same name running now on Showtime, co-wrote this political satire with Amir Ohebsion (they also produced with Ray Moheet and Norman Aladjem). The comedy follows a wannabe private investigator Jimmy Vestvood (Jobrani) who immigrates to the U.S.
