All week I’ve said it and I’ll say it again: director Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors is an extremely funny movie filled with laugh-out-loud sequences.  You should definitely see it this weekend in a crowded theater.  If you haven’t seen the trailers or read our previous coverage, the film stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a married couple with a newborn baby who must deal with a fraternity—fronted by Zac Efron—when it moves in next door.  Neighbors also stars Dave FrancoChristopher Mintz-PlasseJake JohnsonIke Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, Jerrod Carmichael, and Lisa Kudrow.  For more on Neighbors, read Matt’s review.

At the New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne.  They talked about how much of their improvisation is done in the moment and how much is thought about in advance, what it was like working with Nicholas Stoller, why they filmed in L.A., the rehearsal process for the film, what it was like for Byrne co-starring with the producer, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne:

  • After saying how much I dug the movie I asked what do they want to talk about.
  • They talk about the rehearsal process.
  • How much of their improv is done in the moment versus preparing for the scene the night before?
  • How they filmed in L.A. and why they did it.
  • What was it like working with Nicholas Stoller?
  • Rose talks about what it was like co-starring with one of the producers of the movie.
