Nick Frost & Simon Pegg Discuss Paul in New Featurette
01.09.11 by BJSprecher
One of the greatest comedy imports from Britain since Monty Python has to be the pairing of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Whether bashing in the skulls of zombies in Shaun of the Dead or busting up a seemingly benign neighborhood watch program in Hot Fuzz, it's the obvious real-life bromance between Frost and Pegg that makes their performances so hilarious. Now, the duo have teamed up—as both writers and lead actors— to help an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) return home in Paul, a new comedy directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) that pokes fun at everything from sci-fi movies and comic book conventions to good ol' Americana herself.
In this new featurette, which includes some never-before-seen footage from the movie, Frost and Pegg discuss the "alien road-trip fiasco" concept at the heart of the movie and how being "foreign in America" was a lot of fun during the real-life RV road-trip the pair took while writing the movie.
Paul also stars Bill Hader, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Blythe Danner and the "Queen of Sci-fi" herself, three-time Academy Award nominee Sigourney Weaver.
