Employee Of The Month
How did you decide for Employee of the Month to be your second movie?
I read a lot of scripts for my second movie. a second movie is always a harder decision than the first movie because people have already made their minds up about you as an actress. I think you have more to prove in the second movie and more to show.
What appealed to you about the part?
I was probably 15 pages in when I called Lions Gate and was like.. I'm totally sold, I want to be a part of this movie, its fun, it's a great character for me, it's a great cast and I just knew it was a good part. I'm a cashier, and there is this whole rivalry between other employees to get into bed with me.
What was it like working with Dane Cook?
Zak is played by Dane Cook and he has made me so completely comfortable on set. I have never had to have a love interest in front the cameras before unless I was shooting a reality TV programme. So I was a little nervous beforehand hoping that there would be some sort of chemistry and that I could make it believable to the audience, because I am a huge romantic comedy fan and I was just hoping I could convince the audiences the way that Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and Reese Witherspoon or cute girls always convince the audience that they are really in love with the guy. And Dane has made that very easy. He has kept me laughing, kept my smile genuine. I really couldn't ask for a better co-star.
And with Dax Shepard?
Vince is played by Dax Shepard and I can't even say his name without giggling. He's a doll. Dax is very smart and he can make the entire room fall on the floor laughing just by being completely random and just saying some off the wall stuff which you cant help but laugh at. He's perfect for his character.
How did you find working with the Director Greg Coolidge?
I think that it's just his energy and his love for the project, and he's invested a lot, he's invested a lot of heart into the project. Upon our first meeting I wanted to do the project because of his vision and I knew it would be easy and that he would be able to deal with any kind of personality that came his way.
Was it fun having comedians on the set?
All these guys really respect each other and that's nice, really nice actually because it allows everybody to work at their craft and be the best that they can be. And the fact that they all laugh at each other is great because if you're a comedian it's hard to make another comedian laugh - you have to win them over and I think pretty much everyone is won over on the set which makes for a great atmosphere.
What can audiences expect when they go to see Employee of the Month?
If you have a really tough day go see Employee of the Month because you know you are just going to be wetting your pants, there's going to be laugh after laugh.there are some really clever smart laughs, but also there's heart to Employee of the Month which is great because it makes you say "ahhhh that's a really great movie". I love to come out of a movie and say that. I think that's what you'll say with Employee of the Month "ahhhhh that's a really great movie".
