you were living in your van on a beach in Hawaii, jobless, listening to Dre’s
2001 everyday. Do you ever miss anything
about those days? Simpler times, being able to go anywhere you want without
fear of paparazzi, etc.
That was such
an amazing time in my life. There are elements I miss. Perhaps most of all, uncertainty.
Are there any
roles you regret taking/ not taking?
Ever. They all led me to here.
Karate beat Starlord in a fight?
But with his band of child ninjas, it would be close.
Since you and
Jennifer Lawrence have a pretty similar sense of humour, there must’ve been
some pretty hilarious moments on set of Passengers. What is one of the funniest
(or embarrassing) moments when filming the movie?
sitting in our chairs waiting for the next shot and a big set light bulb
exploded nearby and she screamed. high pitched. very feminine. then she immediately looked
over at me and said, “Jesus Chris! You scream like a woman! Did everyone
just hear Chris?” and for the rest of the
shoot i couldn’t convince anyone it wasn’t me. I
just had to own it.
Does your son
still think you’re a firefighter?
No. He knows
i’m an actor. But he thinks it’s kind of stupid. haha! I suppose he’s right!!!
Would you be willing to play my wife in a biopic I’m shooting for myself? You
would have to wear a wig and have sex with me.
Will you and
your wife ever do a movie together where you’re both leading? I think you’re
both talented and would make an exceptional screen-team!
Yes we will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and rec, actually know Aubrey Plaza from summer camp(she was good friends with
one of my sister’s) Do you have a favorite moment of working with Aubrey?
I had the
best time working with Aubrey. My favorite moments with her were when she would
let her guard down, (it didn’t happen that often) and I got to see what a sweet
and caring person she is. It’s not dissimilar
to the April character.
difficult to control the raptors on the set of JURASSIC WORLD? Did you have any
prior training in order to not get hurt by them? It must have been pretty
scary. Was it scary? I bet it was.
It’s amazing i made it out alive. The sequel shoots in a fewmonths. I already
have nervous diahrea, diarreah, diarreeah, how the fuck do you spell that?
anyways. Yeah. I"m probably gonna die on
How has your
past as an overweight, comedic character played influenced your growth as an
actor, especially now that you’re considered one of the sexiest Hollywood
No. Vanity in
comedy understanding the element of my job in where I am a prop. I was confident and in good
shape when i first came to LA but nobody would cast me in any well written
roles. People assumed based on my looks I was an asshole and a one trick pony.
I only auditioned to play the douchebag characters. my audition material would
be like “Bradley, 24, you hate him immediately”, int. locker room. Bradley
looks to our hero, squints his eyes, runs his hands through his thick gelled
and frosted tipped hair and says, “Fuck you pussy.” That would be my audition.
“Fuck you pussy.” welcome to the OC bitch. They never let me improv or
do comedy. It wasn’t until I built a shlubby exterior, which stood in stark
contrast to my inner confidence that people gave me room to play. ,
awesome man. Got any guilt or just
general thoughts for taking this sweet lead role in Passengers considering
Keanu Reeves had been trying to get the script made for like 6-7 years?
is awesome. John Wick is the shit. He’s been killing it for so long. And hes a great humanitarian.
extent would you consider Andy Dwyer to be based off yourself?
Andy Dwyer is
the personification of my comedic schtick. I have been making people laugh with
that clown for years and years. Way before I ever did Parks and Rec. He not all
of me. But I AM all of him, if that makes any sense.
from another PNW native (Tigard, OR)! What was the most
challenging aspect of working on Passengers? Also, what’s your favorite
thing about the PNW? Have
a good one! -Alyssa
Hello! Favorite thing about the
PNW is the hard earned summers. Going to the river and floating down with some
beers. I love when Mt. Rainier is out. I love the way everything and everyone
slows down to feel the sun on their face when it first breaks in summer. Usually
you’ve been through 100 days or more in a row of rain and mistiness.
Would you and
Eminem ever do a song together?
after me for years to do a song. wait, no? he doesn’t know I exist? Oh.
well…. probably not. simply because he wouldn’t do it. haha! But I’d buy his cologne if he had one.
What is the
most useless skill you have?
Rubiks cube, although it’s not useless
because i use it to help me run lines.
you be probably doing had you not become an actor?
If I hadn’t
become an actor in the way I did. (being discovered by a director, plucked from
obscurity, etc) I would have continued to pursue stand up comedy. probably
would have tried to become an actor that way.
big fan here! What do you miss most about working on Parks and Rec? What was the hardest part about working on
I miss the
cast and crew. I miss my friends. I miss the commute. I miss the fact it was a
steady gig, all comedy, and took me 7 minutes to get to work. The hardest part of working
on Passengers would be the schedule. There were only two of us primarily through
the whole shoot and we worked incredibly long hours. I was homesick a lot of
the time. It was a grind.
from Scary Movie(s) or Anna Faris from The House Bunny?
Wow. that’s a
good question. like a kiss marry kill thing? Trick question. I’d marry
and kiss them all. And I did!!!
you’ve inspired me to lose weight because funny guys can be sexy shirtless too. So my question is: how has
getting into shape changed your life? Also is having maintain your physique
harder than losing the weight?
can be sexy shirtless. But realness is more important. Exercising for health,
overall physical and spiritual well being I highly recommend. Doing it to look
good naked is cool, but hardly worth the sacrifice. Work on being funny before
sexy. lots of women think funny is sexy anyway.
What can we
expect in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2?
was during Everwood which we shot in Utah. I don’t remember that shirt. I’m not
BYU Alumni. I think that picture was taken at a fan signing event or something.
That shirt must have been a gift or something. I honestly don’t remember.
superhero would Jennifer Lawrence absolutely destroy in?
I’ve been a big fan of yours since Parks and Rec! Just a quick question, who
did you have more fun acting as: Andy Dwyer or Peter Quill? Thanks for taking the time out to do this!
Andy Dwyer. We got to do whole scenes, over and over. It was more stage play.
Lots of improv. Guardians of the Galaxy is so fun to watch, don’t get me wrong,
but making it can be excruciatingly slow and painstaking. When you have so many
elements working at once, you might spend all day shooting a piece of the movie
that will last 10 seconds.
Jennifer Lawrence? What’s your best memory of
working with your mates in your movies and tv shows? Top 5 movies and shows? You’re a very lovable actor
and you’ve lost alot of weight! I’m trying to shave weight off too because of
your change in GotG! Thank you!
awesome. She’s funny and cool. She’s refreshingly tough. She’s an amazing
actor. It feels good to be around her. Best memory? So hard to
say. I’ve been at this for 17 years. It’s a dream job. No question. There have
been so many unforgettable moments. I love what I do for a living. Top 5? Also very difficult.
Friday NIght Lights, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Game of Thrones and Dual Survival.
Hey Chris! Have you ever considered
doing any old school slapstick? It would be fun to see you
do a prat fall.
I think Andy
Dwyer had a lot of that.
If you could
have played any character from a film ever, who would you pick?
Okay, first of all, full disclaimer: I love every single scene with Andy and April. I think their romance is the most beautifully crafted piece of romance ever seen on television, that they support each other no matter what and bring out the best in one another. That being said, I have personal preferences, and these moments are the ones that just make me feel happy and warm inside.
1. The Set Up
I mean, yeah, it’s literally my blog icon, I think it’s a fairly obvious one. Absolutely love dorky April with a big crush in season 2.
2. Andy and April’s Fancy Party
If you’re thinking “She forgot to put the text”, well it was on purpose. What I love about this scene is that they just can’t stop looking at each other. Look at this, in every single gif, they just sneak a peak at each other. It’s perfect, it’s beautiful, and these two beautiful love birds got married that evening and it’s amazing.
This whole conversation is beautiful, April supporting Andy means the world to me.
4. The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show
Andy acknowledging that support was beautiful. Also insecure April is a character I identify with a lot.
5. Moving Up
I could have chosen many others because April just spends her time making Andy’s life better, surprising him and making him happy. I just love Andy’s face in this.
