    Epic Beard Man gets his own flick.

    Thomas Bruso, better known to the world as "Epic Beard Man" or Tom Slick, or Vietnam Tom, gained fame after he turned up in a YouTube video taken while he was riding an Oakland bus.

    Bruso is shown getting into an altercation with another man, while wearing a shirt that says "I AM A MOTHERF****R." As Busco tries to walk away, the other man continues hurling taunts, and a fist. Bruso, beats the other guy to the ground, and gets off the bus. The vid goes viral and he is dubbed "Epic Beard Man."

    Epic Beard Man's epic-ness has just become more epic with a Hollywood feature starring Danny Trejo as the Epic Beard Man character.

    The film called "Bad Ass" appears to be based on the viral video, and Bruso.

    You can check out the trailer below.
