Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis on 'We're the Millers': 3 highlights
Jennifer Aniston teams up with Jason Sudeikis once again in the upcoming film "We're the Millers" and the two actors recently talked about the film to OTRC.com.
Sudeikis plays a drug dealer who hires Aniston's stripper character to play his fake wife. He also hires a homeless teenage girl (Emma Roberts) and his neighbor (Will Poulter) to play their two children to accompany him as he tries to smuggle marijuana across the Mexico border to the United States.
During the interview with George Pennacchio of KABC Television, OTRC.com's parent company, Aniston and Sudeikis revealed that audiences might miss some small jokes due to big laughs and that the script was not perfect ... at first.
Check out three highlights and video of their interview below (Warning: Video contains explicit language.)
1. You might miss some of Sudeikis' "tiny" jokes because of the bigger laughs.
"It's one of those movies that people keep saying to us you know, we're going to have to go back I missed so much of the dialogue," Aniston said about the big laughs in the film. "And that's a really good thing."
"Other people's big laughs got in the way of my small, tiny jokes that follow people's big laughs," Sudeikis joked. "And I was furious. I stood up a couple of times in the premiere and said, 'Knock it off!'"
2. Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn have "great moments."
Offerman, of "Parks and Recreation" fame and Hahn, who has guest starred on shows like "The Newsroom" and "Girls," play a seemingly clean cut family who make a certain proposal to Aniston and Sudeikis' characters.
"A lot of the improvisations [in the film] usually come through our banter between each other," Sudeikis said.
Aniston added, "Especially if it was a two-shot that we just kind of just let it go."
"Yeah, yeah, that's true," Sudeikis agreed. "When we're reacting to the other actors, like Kathryn Hahn and Nick Offerman have great, great moments in this movie and it's just us just sort of --yeah we don't know what they're gonna do and then when they do it, we just respond. Yeah, you can't write that stuff."
3. Aniston admits at first the script "wasn't a home run."
"Honestly, at first, we weren't immediately like, 'Oh this is a home run,'" Aniston said. "It had great potential, obviously, and it needed to sort of get fine tuned and that was sort of a lot of the fun that we had while making it 'cause we had to sort of figure that out as we went."
"It all gets elevated by the cast and the sort of communication that occurs between all the parties involved," Sudeikis added. "We become our own family trying to move this movie across the showbiz border."
Bonus: There's a connection between "We're the Millers" and that Mumford & Sons video Sudeikis recently starred in.
