Opening this weekend is director Kirk Jones’ What to Expect When You’re Expecting. The star-studded ensemble comedy tells the intertwining story of five couples that are having very different experiences while expecting babies.  The cast also includes Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Lopez, Rodrigo Santoro, Joe Manganiello, Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, Brooklyn Decker, Thomas Lennon, and Wendy McLendon-Covey.  For more on the film, here’s the trailer and a TV spot.

At the recent Los Angeles press day I got to speak with most of the cast, and every day this week I’ve been posting a new interview.  If you missed them, here’s Chace Crawford with Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz with Matthew Morrison, and Elizabeth Banks and Ben Falcone.  Today I’ve got director Kirk Jones. During the interview he talked about the casting process, script changes, deleted scenes, his favorite film, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
