New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/02/2015 --Thad and Alex are back, but this time in the motion picture version of their wildly successful series, "Blue Mountain State". In this film "The Rise of Thadland", they have graduated to the pros with the same incredible and ridiculous laugh out loud humorous antics that made the series such a success.

Barry Ratcliffe will be playing the Auctioneer in the feature film version, and could barley contain his laughter the entire time. "Good comedy takes an amazing skill and from the moment I met Alan and Darin, I could not keep a straight face. They are truly amazing actors with impeccable timing, intelligence and an energy that is contagious and empowering. To work with such talent, to discover and support their own creation, is an honor beyond words. And did I mention damn fun!" says Ratcliffe.
