With director Michael Dowse’s extremely funny action-comedy Stuber now playing in theaters, I recently sat down with Betty Gilpin & Natalie Morales for an exclusive interview. In the film, Kumail Nanjiani plays a part-time Uber driver who picks up a passenger (Dave Bautista) shortly after he’s had LASIK surgery and is forced to accompany him on a crazy adventure through Los Angeles as he hunts down a brutal killer. Trust me, Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista are fantastic together and you’ll laugh from the beginning of the film till to end. Stuber also stars Iko Uwais, Jimmy Tatro, Mira Sorvino and Karen Gillan.
During the interview, Gilpin and Morales talked about how much fun they had shooting the movie, what it was like working with Michael Dowse, favorite buddy cop movies, first TV show crushes, the last thing they were obsessed with, the secret to having a great relationship with their cinematographer, the movie they’ve seen the most, and much more.
