From writer/directors Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911!), the outrageous horror comedy Hell Baby tells the story of expectant couple Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb), who move into a haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans and soon find themselves enlisting the help of the Vatican’s elite exorcism team. An overly friendly neighbor living in the house’s crawl space (Keegan Michael Key), Vanessa’s Wiccan sister (Riki Lindhome), and two inept detectives (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer) only add to the ever-growing chaos and mayhem unfolding around them.
At the film’s press day, very funny actor Rob Corddry spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how much improvisation went on during shooting, that he’ll write down and plan stuff to try on set, how he’s good with not cracking up during scenes, how helpful it was to have practical effects to interact with and react to, and how he was worried about pulling off Riki Lindhome’s nude scene and the final battle. He also talked about how much fun he had making Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and how much freedom they had with their much lower budget. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
