From the Set of ‘Neighbors’: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Evan Goldberg on Their R-Rated Comedy

Neighbors
Universal

When I got a chance to sit down with Zac Efron, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen on the set of their upcoming R-rated comedy, 'Neighbors,' Efron was easily the most amped to be there. Perhaps he worried that he would be stuck for much of his career playing in romantic comedies, and similar Disney-fied films (more women break out of the child star shackles than teen heartthrobs). For him it might very well change everything.

Where for Rogen and Goldberg, who recently finished ‘This Is the End’ at the time of our interview, the movie was a transition point as Rogen is now getting old enough to play a responsible adult and parent. And though he produced ‘Neighbors’ with Goldberg, he definitely maintains his hand in the process.
Read on for my interview with Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg on the set of 'Neighbors.'

‘Neighbors’ Set Visit Lets Loose the Dick Jokes, Epic Parties and Director Nick Stoller’s Man Crush

Neighbors Set Visit Seth Rogen Rose Byrne
Universal

In a surprise to no one, director Nicholas Stoller’s new film, ‘Neighbors,’ features male nudity. The film focuses on a married couple played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, whose characters are raising a child, and the frat house next door run by Zac Efron and Dave Franco. In the scenes we saw from our visit to the set, there are a number of big parties in the film, and the frat brothers behave as they will -- which means they’re going to get out of hand and is what creates the central conflict in the film.

’300: Rise of the Empire’ Set Visit: “Lots of Killing and Swords and Fun”

300 Rise of an Empire
Warner Bros.

'300: Rise of an Empire' isn't exactly a sequel. It is, in fact, the events happening at the same time as the battle of the Hot Gates from the first film. Thermisticles (Sullivan Stapleton), who was a real life politician and warrior, has a pretty brilliant idea. (Seriously, check out his Wikipedia page here.) It's an idea that may save the Greeks. Okay, fine. It did save the Greeks, considering the fact that we live in a democratic society.

Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) is back and we're actually learning quite a bit about his past. Though we didn't get to chat with Santoro on set, we talked to director Noam Murro about working with this much CGI, Sullivan about his role and Eva Green about her real-life female warrior. Check out what they had to say below.

From the Set of ‘Need for Speed’: Aaron Paul Talks His New Action Role, ‘Breaking Bad’ and Stunt Driving

Aaron Paul Interview Need for Speed Set
DreamWorks

When I got a chance to sit down with Aaron Paul on the set of his new movie, 'Need for Speed,' he was just coming off the conclusion of ‘Breaking Bad’ -- the show that launched him into stardom -- and he was in a great mood (at one point I think he wanted me to high five him, and I feel bad I didn’t). His energy is infectious, and he was great to talk to about his action film, which could be his launching point into leading man roles. (He’s going to follow it with a role in Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus,’ so he’s in a good place).

‘Need For Speed’ Set Visit: How Director Scott Waugh Puts the Audience in the Driver’s Seat

NEED FOR SPEED
DreamWorks

The main takeaway from my visit to the edit bay of ‘Need for Speed’ was the film’s emphasis on practical stunts, which seems the best way to make a video game adaptation as different and cinematic as possible. As we saw over the summer, the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise has become so big that many of its insane set pieces were created digitally, whereas the ‘Need for Speed’ team was locked into an almost all practical approach. For gearheads and action aficionados, this is the best possible scenario.

Suiting Up for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’: A Chat With One of Cinema’s Most Sought-After Tailors

The Wolf of Wall Street Interview Leonard Losdail
Paramount Pictures

“These are left over from the strippers,” says an extra adding a pile of crinkled white button-downs to the wardrobe station, its tables already drizzled with majorette hats, plastic tubs full of men’s brown, leather wingtips, and standalone racks of fully styled outfits. With some actors having participated in a bathroom brawl scene the night before and an airplane orgy earlier still, dozens of women with classic ‘Working Girl’-style hair poofs and men fitted in their stockbroker best begin lining up for a final approval before heading to the bullpen set, where they'd soon be bombarding Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort with job requests.

And despite all these distractions on the set of 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' these background actors made time to approach one man dressed in a classic, pinstriped suit to ask, "Is this the Leonard Logsdail?"

‘American Hustle’ Interviews: Talking With Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner

American Hustle Interview
Sony Pictures

Critics may debate whether 'American Hustle' is good or great (and they are), but one thing even the toughest critic of David O. Russell's 70s crime epic can agree on: the performances are outstanding. Across the board, the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner and even Louis CK deliver some of their best work; work that is sure to be recognized this Oscar season.

Folk Hero: Oscar Isaac Talks ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ Working With the Coen Brothers and Finding Success

Oscar Isaac Inside Llewyn Davis
CBS Films

If ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is a film about being chosen for success, Oscar Issac is Hollywood’s latest choice. The young actor has distinguished himself in a wide variety of roles over the past few years, including turns in ‘Nativity Story,’ ‘Robin Hood,’ ‘Sucker Punch’ and ‘Drive’ among many others, but taking the title role in the Coen brothers’ latest film catapults him to a new level of opportunity, offering new challenges, and of course, bigger rewards. And in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ he plays the role to the hilt, utilizing the Coens’ idiosyncratic creativity to create a portrait of a struggling musician that is at once blindingly specific and spectacularly universal.

Isaac sat down with us in Los Angeles to talk about the challenges of the role. In addition to discussing how the Coens complement his performance with a context that enriches the character, he explained what he felt like the film was about, for him, and finally revealed his thought process as he embarks on the next phase of a career that is growing exponentially with each new role he takes on.
