After so many years of giving acclaimed, dramatic turns, Bryan Cranston finally returns to comedy with Why Him?, playing a dad who has serious doubts about his daughter’s boyfriend – resulting in a sweet, raunchy and often laugh out loud watch.
The film pits James Franco against Cranston’s doting father. Having wrapped his daughter in cotton wool for the best part of two decades, Cranston’s Ned is given a stern wake-up call upon meeting her new love interest, Laird, an Internet celebrity that looks to be James Franco doing his best James Franco impression. John Hamburg is behind the lens, flanked by a team of producers that includes Shawn Levy, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Dan Levine.
At the recent press day for Why Him?, we sat down with co-stars Keegan-Michael Key, Zoey Deutch and Megan Mullally to talk about their new project. Excited and enthusiastic, the actors spoke about past girlfriends and boyfriends and performed their own rendition of the film’s theme song for us, in two different version. To say that it was an unconventional interview is definitely an understatement, and you can check out all the shenanigans for yourself in the video up above.
Give it a watch and be sure to catch Why Him? when it hits theatres this Friday!
