Ari Graynor Talks FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL…

     August 27, 2012


In For A Good Time Call, Ari Graynor stars as Katie Steele – one half of the odd-couple roommates who venture out into the phone sex trade.  Graynor is the ‘Walter Matthau’ of the duo: brash, loud, wild – in stark contrast to Lauren Miller’s posh stuck-up ‘Lemmon’ Lauren Powell.  But underneath Katie’s façade of wild and licentious debaucheries, lurks someone far more innocent and naïve than appearances would suggest.  Graynor – who has previously cut her filmography with supporting roles in comedies like Nick and Norah’s Playlist, The Sitter and Whip It, here takes center stage and more than acquits herself.  Graynor’s fun, bubbly demeanor serves the lite bubble-gum comedy well and she is equally as engaged and fun to talk to in person.

In the following interview with Graynor, she discusses balancing her role as actor and producer, her creative input on the film and working with Barbara Streisand on the upcoming The Guilt Trip.  For the full interview, hit the jump.
