Seann William Scott, Billy Bob Thornton and Ethan Suplee – Exclusive Video Interviews

     September 12, 2007

Okay… that bit in the slugline about tough Collider questions… yeah, that’s just not true. In fact, I’d actually say that the questions I asked Billy Bob and Seann just weren’t my best.

And I don’t know what happened. Usually I’m calm and collected and I’d like to think I ask decent stuff. But for some reason I felt the pressure of trying to get something funny out of them and I don’t know what came over me. When you watch the interview you’ll see… not my best stuff. But it does get better in the end.

On the other hand, the interview with Ethan Suplee went very well. I talked about what’s up with “My Name is Earl” and I even did a time warp and asked him some “Mallrats” and “The Fountain” questions.

And by now you’ve probably wondering why I even interviewed these guys.

Opening this weekend in theaters everywhere is the new movie “Mr. Woodcock.” In the film Seann William Scott stars as John Farley, a self-help author who returns to his hometown only to discover that his mother (Susan Sarandon) has fallen in love with his old high school nemesis, Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton) – the gruff, no-nonsense gym teacher who had put him through years of mental and physical humiliation. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, John sets out to stop his mother from marrying the man who had made life miserable for him and his classmates. Also starring in the film is Ethan Suplee and Amy Poehler.
