Peter Farrelly did an “Ask me anything” session on Reddit today, and what can I say, the man can deliver. I would blow him just for admitting Channing Tatum really is as stupid as he looks.
On getting Richard Gere on board for Movie 43:
Is begging the same as fellating? Because if thats the case, then yes I had to beg Richard Gere.
On Finding the perfect fake splooge for There’s Something About Mary:
The funny part was when a guy showed up on the set with all different jizz sizes and shapes, to hang on Bens ear. God’s honest truth, that’s somebody’s job. This guy shows up with a briefcase and inside he has about 40 different loads. Each one is a different length and texture, sort of like snow flakes. Only prettier. We laughed our asses off. But I did feel kinda bad that this was the man’s lot in life–to carry a briefcase full of jizzm. By the way that man grew up to be Anderson Cooper.
On working with Bill Murray:
The great talents have moments of darkness- Bill Murray -Jim Carrey etc, but they always seem to take it out on themselves, not other people. Bill did once beat a studio head to death–but to me he’s been a luv.
On Working with Halle Berry:
I was a little nervous about meeting her because her scene is so outrageous and I was afraid she might get on the set and balk. Not only did she not, but she thought the scene was too soft, and asked us to amp it up a little. We ended up coming up with a couple of things for her to do that weren’t scripted, but were insane. To give you an example the short is about a couple (her and Stephen Merchant) who play Truth or Dare on a first date. Among other things she ended up sticking her bare breast into a bowl of guacamole. She couldn’t have been more fun to work with.
On Dumb and Dumber 2:
Yes. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are in. And there are a couple of other very juicy roles. I love that guy Channing Tatum and would love to get him in there. Also, there’s an excellent role for a young dumb girl. Emma Stone would knock it out of the park.
