Director Paul Weitz (About a Boy) comedy-drama Admission opens this weekend. The film stars Tina Fey as an admissions officer at Princeton University whose life is thrown for a curve when she runs into an old friend (Paul Rudd) while visiting an experimental high school in New Hampshire. Admission also stars Lily Tomlin, Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Nat Wolff, and Gloria Reuben. For more on the film, here’s the trailer and six clips.
The other day I got to speak with Tomlin here in Los Angeles. We talked about how she got involved in the project, her thoughts on the script and her character, how much improv they did, if she ever tried to make Tina Fey laugh on camera, and her great work last season on HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Hit the jump to watch.
