Opening this weekend is director Michael Dowse’s 80’s based comedy Take Me Home Tonight starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, Chris Pratt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Lucy Punch, Michael Ian Black, and Demetri Martin. The film centers on a recent MIT grad (Grace) who gets invited, along with his best friend (Fogler) and twin sister (Faris), to an epic, end-of-summer 1988 party by his high-school crush (Palmer). For more on the film, you can watch 11 clips here.
I recently got to interview Fogler & Pratt and we talked about what’s it been like for them waiting for the film to come out, what 80’s films did they watch to prepare for the roles, doing interviews, and Fogler tells a good Christopher Walken story. Hit the jump to watch:
