EXCLUSIVE: Interview With ‘Neighbors’ Stars Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse & Jerrod Carmichael

Dave Franco: And I play Pete, who is the vice president to Zac’s president. And I’m the guy who starts out the movie kind of with the same mentality as Zac’s character. I can see that this guy is making fun of me down here. And it’s the same mentality as Zac’s character in the sense that, like, we both are — kind of have a one track mind. Want to party and get girls. But then throughout the film, Pete — you see that Pete actually is working towards having a future. Delta Psi isn’t his whole world as it is for Teddy. And he is the smartest of the dumb kids and slightly nicer than the rest of the mean kids.

HEAVY: Talk a little bit, about working–knowing that you’re releasing, like, a hard R movie, the freedom of being able to say and do whatever you want.

Dave Franco: It’s great. But at the same time, I don’t know. Sometimes after we finish a scene, I look back and I’m, like, did I say fuck too many times? It’s–I don’t know. It does feel great to have the freedom to say whatever we want. Literally, like, you can get really dark and weird with it. It’s, like, a–.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: Yeah.

Dave Franco: Hard R. I mean, we see Chris’s dick.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: And it’s not even like —.

Dave Franco: Go back to the dick talk.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: Yeah, it’s not even the words. It–there’s so many drugs in this movie.

Dave Franco: Right.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: And there’s a boner rig that you wear.

Dave Franco: Right, right.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: There’s — it’s honestly, like, every day, it just gets crazier and crazier. Because it’s an R movie, you’re allowed to do that kind of stuff.

HEAVY: What does being in this movie mean to all of you as far as your personal goals and your career?

Jerrod Carmichael: This is my first movie. So, it means it’s really fun. It — I know that sounds — it’s — I hope that everything else could try and at least match this. You know, it really means the world that they allow me to be a part of the vision of it and it’s been really fun.

HEAVY: Chris and Dave, you guys have worked together before, you’ve done shorts. Were you sort of a package deal when it came to this film?

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: Evan hit me up to do it. And then I was on the fence because I was maybe going to record an album with my band.

Dave Franco: But then I heard that Chris was fully attached.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: Yeah.

Dave Franco: And so, I wanted to tell him in person. I was giddy to tell him that I got the part. And we go out for drinks and I was, like, dude, I’m in Neighbors. He’s, like, no. I’m recording my album. I was, like, f*ck you.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: You really were, like, the defining factor that I was, like, I got to work with you again.

Dave Franco: So, it was my mission that night.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: Yeah.

HEAVY: How do you like working with Seth Rogen again?

Christopher Mintz-Plasse: He’s great. I mean, he’s one of the main reasons why I’m working today. I owe everything to him. Superbad was fantastic. I did a small part in This Is The End that’s out, which was a blast. And this is my first time working with him where he’s a producer, like, this involved, and he’s killing it. He’s doing a great job, yeah.
