We debut a lot of trailers at Shelf Life, but this brilliant clip for Sam Wasson’s upcoming biography of Bob Fosse (out Nov. 5) — appropriately titled Fosse — may be one of the best. Wasson, author of the best-selling Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M., spent three and a half years writing this 750-page epic about the epic man responsible for iconic dance numbers in Chicago, Cabaret, and other Oscar- and Tony-winning shows. This hilarious video shows Wasson attempting to emulate his subject’s womanizing, passionate, and perfectionist ways. Wasson may not have succeeded in becoming Fosse, but he succeeded in bringing him to life in his bio. Watch the cameo-packed video below!
