SXSW 2010 Roundtable Interviews: Director Jorma Taccone, Actors Will Forte & Kristen Wiig & Co-Writer John Solomon (MACGRUBER)
TICK! TICK! BOOM! MacGruber's (Will Forte) here and he's brought Kristen Wiig, co-writer/director Jorma Taccone and co-writer John Solomon with him. If you know about just one of these comedians, then I shouldn't need to give you a heads up on how funny these interviews are. All MacGruber questions you may have: How awkward was it to film the sex scene? Was it supposed to be rated R? Was anything cut from the script? How many times will MacGruber die in 84 minutes? Whose idea it was to give Val Kilmer's Cunth a ponytail? and much much more are answered in these two roundtables.
I was going to transcribe both, but I didn't for two reasons: 1) The commentary is just too hilarious to write and 2) There's so many voices going on at once, it was hard type it out (i.e. I'm lazy). After the jump you can hear both audio roundtables, which were conducted by GATW, Film School Rejects, Bullz-Eye, io9, FearNet and one more outlet that I couldn't get the name of in time. Enjoy!
These interviews do contain spoilers - consider this your warning!
