TheCinemaSource.com Interview (by Zak Santucci)
This was an interesting
interview, I’m not gonna lie. It was Dane Cook the stand-up comedian, Andy Milonakis the twenty-seven year-old dude
that pretends to be thirteen, and Justin Long the guy from Jeepers Creepers. They pretty much bounced off each other
with the most non-serious answers to questions I’ve ever heard.
The most surprising was that Long, the non-comedian of the group was keeping up with
these big guys and even surpassing them at points. And while earlier I just saw Waiting… as an extension of a
joke from Super Troopers with a similar plot, now I really, really want to see it. There’s gotta be some hardcore
comedy in this movie coming soon. Really, to give you an idea, here’s some things I heard released from Justin’s
“Andy mainly does erotic thrillers with Lance Henriksen.”
working on a project with Gary Busey and Jake Busey called ‘Just the Three of Us’.”
one time did a girl in missionary position.”
“It was hard for me to play (The Penis Game) because I don’t
have male or female genitalia. I used to play The Ken Doll. I just have a flesh mound.”
Oh and also when Dane Cook mentioned he used to play a game called “Punch Each
Other in the Asshole”, Long responded with a hearty, “I used to play with the Dame Judi Dench.”
So that’s, pretty interesting. Actually the craziest thing was he then said,
“I’m working on a pet project with the kid from the E-Bay store from 40 Year-Old Virgin.” But I think
he was serious about that one.
But more seriously, I think Justin was happy to be in a comedy like this one. Despite
his obvious carefree demeanor he said outright: “This was a comedy movie, it’s not so heavy. A lot of the more
serious movies are so heavy.” He said it like it was a burden lifted off his shoulders and he really liked the environment.
But it’s not super crazy and as light-hearted as you think, when asked if they’d worked in a restaurant before
(through the chaotic joke answers I think I interpreted…) that all the actors had. Then Long added, “If you worked
in a restaurant you know it’s not actually that far off.” So it sounds like this movie is really going to find
a core audience in the huge population of us that have been forced to work in retail and more specifically, food service.
But the real story is that Justin Long in his post-Jeepers Creepers career
is making quite the name for himself. And despite playing the “straight man” in this wacky comedy, he has some
comedic talent and according to imdb.com has a lot of stuff happening with him pretty soon. And that kid from the E-Bay store
was pretty funny if you saw the movie.
