Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman Interview KUNG FU PANDA 2 slice

With Kung Fu Panda 2 opening this weekend, I recently got to interview Dustin Hoffman and Jack Black for our partners at Omelete.  While some sequels spend a lot of time reminding the audience who the characters are, one of the many things that’s great about Kung Fu Panda 2 is that it starts like you know the world and it never slows down.  In addition, while I’ve been very vocal about bad 3D, Kung Fu Panda 2 features some incredible 3D and the best part is the filmmakers used 3D to help tell the story.  If you have the option, you really want to see this in 3D.

While I’ve been doing interviews for almost six years, my conversation with Hoffman and Black is without a doubt one of the craziest I’ve ever had during a press junket.  Even though I don’t want to spoil what happens, I’ll say that wearing my Threadless t-shirt that says rub me on your butt was not my best idea.  Or maybe it was.  Judge for yourself after the jump.

Finally, for more video interviews on Kung Fu Panda 2, here’s Lucy Liu and and director Jennifer Yuh.  You can also click here for all our previous coverage.

    hilarious!! why did you have to wrap it up so damn soon.. loved it!

      They give you a set amount of time, and then they give you a wrap-it-up signal to ask your last question. He got the wrap-up signal a little beyond the half-way point of the interview. It’s not based on how many questions you get in, it’s based entirely on time. It’s all in an effort to get as many interviews as possible with the talent they assemble.

      Steve did what he could. Still hilarious to watch.

    Dustin Hoffman is a living legend

    Steve had no control over the interview whatsoever and I loved it. He was completely manhandled by the star power of Hoffman.

    Interview victory! I think anything, including silly t-shirts, that elicit genuine interaction at a press junket is great, even if it veers so far from the original purpose of the interview. Dustin Hoffman has been a pioneer in being weird since the 1960s, so it’s no surprise that he was able to get weird here. Nice.
