Yesterday was probably one of the more enjoyable experiences of 2010. I drove to Dublin to talk shit with Edgar Wright, Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman and Anna Kendrick about their new movie, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.
After just over 2 hours sleep and much deliberation about going at all due to Ger being sick, I hit the road. Coasted into Dublin in just over 2 hours, albeit I had to stop for around 15 mins for a snooze half way up. First up was Edgar Wright who had just stepped off a non espresso carrying Aer Lingus flight. Edgar was really cool as you’ll hear in the special, everything from an extended edition of Scott Pilgrim to ZX81’s were discussed. After that, it was back to the press room and await the next interview. Not long after I trundled off to talk to Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman. Upon walking into the room, all I could see was Schwartzman and not long after Michael Cera pounced out of a cupboard. When shit like that happens, you know the interview can’t go wrong. Well for me anyway. Jason Schwartzman got on his knees to do the interview and then we all decided to get on our knees.
Quickly the conversation turned to lube, to which Cera pulls out a bottle of Tabasco sauce. Either way it was an absolute blast, so much so that I’ve decided to air the Cera / Schwartzman interview unedited. It was actually the most fun interview I’ve done in quite some time. It was certainly interesting to say the least when the studio people come in and your on your knees. Anyway, next up was Anna Kendrick, who was absolutely delightful.
Then I hit the road home, which took a bit longer as I had to get fed. I rolled in and for one reason or another, I was still up at 11pm. Anyway, the Scott Pilgrim special will air THIS THURSDAY and repeated on SUNDAY NIGHT!
