Reilly to rock the country

Producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) is using an unusual marketing ploy for his newest comedy feature, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. The film's star, John C. Reilly (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), will perform live as Cox with his band, the Hard Walkers, during a multiple-city domestic music tour. It kicks off Wednesday in Cleveland and will eventually hit Chicago, Austin, Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The comedy opens on screens on Dec. 21.
