Last week, the four leads from the amazingly funny Superbad
hit town to promote the film. Andrew Sweeney [whose work in getting
this recorded and prepared is phenomenal] and myself met with them on
the Superbad Tour Bus at the Warped Tour in Atlanta. Those leads are:
Hill, who plays Seth to vulgar perfection in the film. Definitely a
role that will open people’s eyes in a big way. A truly special comedic
Michael Cera, who plays Evan. A lot of people know him as George Michael from Arrested Development. He’s even funnier here.
Hader, who you may know from SNL or a variety of other roles. Here he
plays Officer Slater, and his interplay with Seth Rogen and the
gentleman below is amazing stuff.
Mintz-Plasse, who arrives as Fogell. He’s a first-timer, but the
Mclovin stuff is terrific and will be the first stuff that creates a
revisionist backlash once jackoffs start quoting it at the water
Every weekday I’ll release a little video clip
from our time spent with the gents. More their answers than our
questions, since they’re better than us.
