Mark Lanier Hits The Big Screen

When we read in the

Wall Street Journal

that Houston mega-lawyer Mark Lanier had a role in a new movie called


, we assumed it was about a class-action suit involving defective killer tires, and that the above video was an early trailer for it before a name change.

Alas, no. Puncture involves "an antitrust case involving a patented safety syringe and one syringe-maker's battle to get to market, told through a small personal injury firm" which, ummmm, sounds interesting?

It made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival recently, and Lanier -- known for his epic Christmas parties -- plays a lawyer.

Lanier's firm was involved in the suit the movie is based on, and he told the Journal "I play the role of a lawyer named 'Mark Lanier.'"

Lanier is apparently in three scenes. The film's cast also features Houston's Brett Cullen.

Coming to a theater near you? Maybe not anytime soon. But if they wised up and used a killer tire like the trailer above.....
