Jason Segel and Emily Blunt Talk THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT, Favorite Movies, Directors and Actors, Improv, and More

     April 26, 2012


Opening this Friday, April 27th is director Nicholas Stoller’s comedy The Five-Year Engagement.  The film reunites Stoller with his Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Jason Segel and follows a couple (played by Segel and Emily Blunt) through the ups and downs of their extended engagement.  The excellent ensemble cast also includes Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans, David Paymer, Mimi Kennedy, Jacki Weaver, Jim Piddock, Kevin Hart, Brian Posehn and Mindy Kaling.  For more on the film here’s the red-band trailer and five clips.

I got to visit the set earlier this year where I previously spoke with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, but recently I sat down with them again to talk about the film for our partners at Omelete.  During the course of our interview, they talked about improv versus sticking to the script, favorite movies, directors & actors, Brazil, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

    As a brazilian I have to say I have no idea what kind of meat Jason is talking about? Did he say “shaved meat”? “Chero escuro”?

    Any other brazilian out there that understoood what he was referencing?

    • Bill Graham

      If you are as Brazilian as you say you are, I’m surprised you don’t recognize the word “churrascarias”. Though he confused it by thinking it was the meat, it is a form of Brazilian steak house where they specialize in barbecue meats that are cut off the skewers at the tables.

        Oh, you’re right, I feel a little embarrassed right now, I’m actually from the south, wich is where it’s said the best Churrascos are made.
        But in my defense, his pronunciation is horrible.
