Exclusive: Sobering Talk with Director Todd Phillips


If there’s one thing that I hate Todd Phillips for, it’s delivering Old School to the world. Specifically, delivering that movie unto the unwashed masses of frat guys at my college who proceeded to quote the damned thing as if it were their job. We got it. Once it hits your lips, beer is pretty tasty, and no, I won’t be calling you Frank the Tank. Your name is Hunter, for God’s sake. If there’s two things I hate Todd Phillips for, it’s looking exactly like a young Donald Sutherland. I can’t really explain that one, so just roll with me on it.

Luckily, I got to confront my nemesis (read: interview the nice director man) in the luxurious Caesar’s Palace (read: the luxurious Caesar’s Palace) in beautiful Las Vegas to talk about his upcoming film The Hangover. And now, through the magic of technology, you can see and hear the entire conversation! It’s just like being there!

If you liked that, check out the interview I did with Zach Galifianakis, and stay tuned for an interview with co-star Ed Helms. If you didn’t like it, keep that to yourself. My ego is already fragile enough as it is.
