Evan Goldberg – Exclusive Video Interview

     August 12, 2007

Opening this Friday is “Superbad” and it’s going to be a huge hit that shatters everyone’s expectations. Because make no mistake, “Superbad” is the real deal and a movie that will have you laughing beginning to end.

If you haven’t seen any of the trailers or posters, you can go here to watch some movie clips and get caught up.

And now that you have, let’s move on.

Posted below is a video interview I just did with Evan Goldberg, the co-writer of “Superbad” and the upcoming “Pineapple Express” and “Green Hornet.”

He does all the writing with Seth Rogen and they’ve been great friends since they were 13 and shared Bar Mitzvah class together. Apparently they used to spend a ton of their time writing, so if it hadn’t been for that class we’d never have gotten these movies. So as a big fan of these guys, I’d like to thank Judaism for providing my summer laughs.

Finally, when you see the movie you should know that Michael Cera’s character named Evan is based on the real life Evan. Hence the name.

In the next two days I’ll be posting some interviews with the cast… so until then…

Evan Goldberg Part 1

  • Backstory on how Superbad came together. Evan talks about the writing process. It’s all about Bar Mitzvah class. He also talks about Judd Apatow and what he suggested they do with the script to make it better.
  • 3:00 – I ask him if he would ever want to act as everyone else in the group is in front of the camera…
  • 3:55 – Pineapple Express talk.
  • 5:30 – How is the test screening process helping the movie.
  • 6:08 – Evan mentions that they just got Graeme Revell to do the music for Pineapple Express.

Evan Goldberg Part 2 – Green Hornet Talk

Here are some of the highlights of what he said about “Green Hornet”

  • It’s going to be PG-13.
  • Not a comedy. Going to be an action movie.
  • He says it’ll be like, “Lethal Weapon, meets 48 Hours, meets Indiana Jones.”
  • And when he says Indiana Jones, that’s the type of humor they’re going for. Even though it’s action, there is comedy in the action.
  • Not looking at the comics. Primarily basing it on the 60’s TV Show.
