Based on a true story, the movie reflects a 1985 incident in a northern Georgia forest that involved a black bear who presumably overdosed on a duffle bag filled with more than 70 pounds of cocaine. In real life, the bear died shortly after. But in the film, this very wired bear turns into a complete savage and begins terrorizing people left and right (this is not a friendly bear movie for the kids!).
Directed by Elizabeth Banks, the film features an impressive cast that includes Keri Russell and the late Ray Liotta. It also features TikTok comedian Scott Seiss (@scottseiss). Keep reading to learn everything we know about his film debut.
TikTok user Scott Seiss stars in 'Cocaine Bear.'
If you watch the trailer down below, you'll notice that Scott appears within the first few seconds. He plays a paramedic. Upon receiving a call from a house, he and his partner go in to discover an extremely angry and coked-up bear. And from the looks of it, Scott appears to be one of the bear's first attacks.
The comedian shared the news on TikTok and Twitter. "I told y'all I was in Cocaine Bear," he wrote alongside the trailer.
Fans rejoiced in the comments of Scott's video. "Just saw the trailer and was like 'ayy that’s the Ikea dude!! Congrats my guy," wrote one user. Another said: "I already love this movie."
Scott Seiss has garnered a massive following for his "Ikea guy" videos.
If you've worked in retail or currently do, you'll want to give Scott a follow on TikTok. He constantly shares relatable retail employee videos to his 1.6 million followers. In the bulk of these videos, he pretends to be a grumpy Ikea employee who tells customers like it is.
For example, in the video above, he shares his hilarious inner thoughts whenever a customer asks him for something while he's on break.
