‘That Awkward Moment’ Interview: Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller on Their Raunchy Comedy
Zac Efron and breakout stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller star as three buddies navigating the New York dating scene in ‘That Awkward Moment,’ the R-rated, raunchy directorial debut of Tom Gormican. Watch as we sit down with this trio of actors to discuss the film, their bro-bonding on set, and more!
In ‘That Awkward Moment,’ when a member of the trio of friends discovers his wife wants a divorce, his buddies come to the rescue, and the three make a pact to stay single while their emotionally injured compatriot recovers — that is, until two of them start to fall in love and must ask themselves that awkward question that always starts with, “so … where is this going?”
Aside from Gormican’s first time in the director’s seat, the film also marks Zac Efron’s first time as an executive producer. While the star has been in the limelight since his child acting days on ‘High School Musical,’ he recently delved into more dramatic fair with recent turns in ‘The Paperboy,’ ‘Parkland’ and ‘At Any Price.’
Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, however, only recently broke out with highly acclaimed performances in ‘Fruitvale Station‘ and ‘The Spectacular Now,’ respectively. Both already have bright futures ahead of them — Jordan has been tapped to portray Apollo Creed’s grandson in the ‘Rocky’ spinoff, ‘Creed,’ while Teller currently has a place within the popular ‘Divergent‘ franchise, and both are reportedly up for roles in director Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four‘ reboot.
Watch our video interview with the trio above, and catch ‘That Awkward Moment’ in theaters starting this Friday, January 31.
