A video of the original table-read for
released back in 2009 has just gone viral, featuring a young Emma Stone, Michael Cera and Jonah Hill cracking up at the foul-mouthed dialogue in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s script.
The footage shows the primary cast members reading through the climactic party scene, including the cringe-infested sex scene between Cera and co-star Martha MacIsaac.
If you’ve not seen it before, it’s well worth checking out the video below…
What’s immediately striking is just how much fun the cast seem to be having, with Stone in particular giggling and cringing her way through proceedings. There’s also a real sense of just how embarrassing some of this stuff is going to be to perform on the big screen.
Special mention should go to Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who’s clearly already well on the way to scene-stealing status with his comically nasal delivery. Seth Rogen certainly struggles to keep it together when his co-star starts doing his thing.
An awesome little behind-the-scenes insight, then. A repeat viewing would seem to be in order…
