Just a few minutes ago I posted a great interview with Zachary Levi about his TV show “Chuck”. If you’re a fan of the show, it’s a must watch interview as he discusses the future of “Chuck”, this year’s Comic-Con, how next season could still be 22 episodes instead of 13, and a whole lot more.
Anyway, when the interview was almost at the end, we veered off into a new topic of conversation and since it’s about a movie he tried to do this hiatus, I figured it was worth posting separately.
It ends up that Zach tried to be a part of director Greg Mottola’s “Paul”. In case you forget what it’s about, read this.
But for the lazy ones, it’s the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie that has a huge cast featuring Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch. It’s a buddy road trip movie that features Simon and Nick as two science-fiction fanatics that meet an escaped Area 51 alien named Paul. While the rest of the details are still under wraps, I’ve heard from multiple sources that the script is laugh out loud funny. But with Simon Pegg co-writing it, I’m not surprised.
So now the reason for this article. While we all knew Jason Bateman and Bill Hader would be in the movie, no details had emerged about which characters they played. But thanks to Zach…we now do. Take a look after the jump:
Zach talks Paul
- Talks about how badly he wanted to be in Paul with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
- Went out for one of the “idiot agents” that are trying to track Simon and Nick down
- Jason Bateman plays the smart agent and Bill Hader plays one of his assistants?
- If Zach had gotten the part, he would have played opposite Bill
