Just in case You're just as hooked on The Hangover, as I am:
You work with children and animals on this movie. Which was the most challenging?
Justin: "I'd say the tiger, probably."
Ed: "The tiger was the scariest, the children are the most time-consuming because they don't do what you want. They don't listen, they don't take direction well. Now a baby tiger probably would have been the hardest, but we didn't have to work with that."
Were you actually facing the tiger when you throw a steak at it?
Ed: "I was absolutely. Here's the thing, the scene that's in the movie - where I walk into the bathroom and throw the steak at the tiger - we probably shot five or six takes of that and the tiger was this close, five feet away. The shot that's in the movie is not real, it's a composite. The trainer came in and baited the tiger to lunge and then I did a separate shot screaming and they put them together. I feel ripped off as an actor because I really did it!"
Zach, was there any guilt on your part making the baby mime-masturbate itself?
Justin: "There's always guilt in masturbation!"
Ed: "Guilt or shame."
Zach: "Not necessarily guilt until people kept asking me about that. Now it's more fear that when I'm fifty, the kid's going to walk up to me and say, 'Are you that guy from The Hangover? You f**ked me up, man!' Obviously, we'd not do it without the parents' permission. I'd like to have a sit down with the parents and have a nice discussion about it."
Justin: "Maybe you can jerk them off!"
Justin, you're in the Private Ryan role as the person everyone's searching for. Were you a bit envious seeing everyone else tear through Vegas?
Justin: "I call it Where's Waldo? on acid. I'd never played a straight-man in a movie so it was kind of a challenge for me to do that. I'm also very lazy, so I still get paid and don't have to do as much work as everybody else."
There's a bit of a Da Vinci Code element to it as well where you're all attempting to piece together a puzzle.
Justin: "I think the Vatican denounced our movie yesterday."
Zach: "Finally! There is a mystery element to it which I think is good. It adds a layer to it that I'd never seen - a movie that has this raunchiness and the denominator of a mystery."
There's talk of a sequel already. What would you like to see your characters get up to?
Justin: "Go into space."
Zach: "Give a panda a blow job."
Ed: "I'd like to have a very intimate love scene with an incredibly hot actress."
Justin: "Because that's so different from the first one, you making out with Heather Graham?"
Zach: "I don't know what we could do to out-do this one, that's the fear. Todd [Phillips] the director is only going to want it to be raunchier. It's the only level it could go to."
Maybe bring in The Jonas Brothers? Your character Alan seems to have an obsession with them
Zach: "It'd be cool if they brought The Jonas Brothers in and I get to meet them, then I faint!"
Ed: "You're excited to do anything you can to promote The Jonas Brothers. They need all the help they can get."
