With director Shawn Levy’s The Internship opening June 7th, I recently landed an extended video interview with Josh Gad and Jessica Szohr. If you’re not familiar with The Internship, the film reteams Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for an internship at Google. The film also stars Max Minghella and Rose Byrne. For more on The Internship, here’s my set visit and on set interviews with Levy, and Wilson and Vaughn.
