In select theaters today, For a Good Time, Call . . . stars Ari Graynor and Lauren Miller as two roommates who run a phone sex line. We recently chatted with Lauren — who also cowrote the screenplay — and Ari about their sweet and sexy flick, which is actually based loosely on cowriter Katie Anne Naylon's real-life experiences as a phone sex operator in college! (Check out our interview with Katie here.) Lauren and Ari shared their own roommate horror stories, how they researched the business of phone sex, and what it was like to be a part of this new wave of raunchy female comedies. Plus, Lauren dished on the effect this sexy role had on her relationship with hubby Seth Rogen, who has a cameo in the film. Watch our interview now!
Out Friday, For a Good Time, Call . . . is a sweet and raunchy comedy about two roommates who run a phone sex line. We recently interviewed the stars Lauren Miller and Ari Graynor, and now we're sharing our chat with director Jamie Travis and cowriter Katie Anne Naylon, who wrote the screenplay with her former roommate Lauren. The film's story may sound too crazy to be true, but it's actually based on Katie's real-life experience running a phone sex line from her dorm room in college! Katie dished on why she had to Google things like S&M, the effect her surprising sexual history had on running a phone sex business, and a disturbing roommate story involving a condom. Known for his short films, this is Jamie's first time directing a full-length feature film, and he talked to us about why his love of women drew him to the story. Watch our interview now, and be sure to check out For a Good Time, Call . . . when it hits select theaters Aug. 31!
Seth Rogen joined his Armani-clad wife, Lauren Miller, at last night's NYC premiere of For a Good Time, Call . . . Lauren wrote the raunchy comedy and costars in it with funny lady Ari Graynor, who chose a pink low-cut dress from Honor and Brian Atwood heels. Justin Long, who's reportedly dating Kate Mara, stepped out solo and adorably posed for photos holding his phone. Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, and Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss stopped by the afterparty to show their support for the project. Elisabeth debuted a short blond bob on the red carpet and turned heads in a sexy black cocktail dress. When asked if blondes really have more fun, Elisabeth joked that she is "so far." For a Good Time, Call . . . hits theaters Aug. 31.
Back by popular demand, it's music from movie trailers! This time, I bring you the songs that caught my ear from the most recent crop of trailers. Can't find that catchy tune from the Goats trailer? Wondering what that melody was at the end of Celeste and Jesse Forever? Wanna work out to the pumpin' beats in the Jack Reacher trailer but you can't figure out what it is because there are no words? I got you covered. Check out all the trailers and songs and let us know which ones make it to your playlist (they're all on mine).
Ever wonder how twentysomethings in movies all seem to live in amazing apartments in NYC despite their lack of income? Katie (Ari Graynor) and Lauren (Lauren Miller) have it all figured out in For a Good Time, Call . . .'s red band trailer. The story starts 10 years ago when a mutual friend (Justin Long) introduces them and drunk Katie proceeds to pee in a Big Gulp in Lauren's car, then spill the contents all over her face. Flash forward 10 years and the two meet again and agree to a convenient roommate situation. Katie's place is great, then Lauren finds out how she's financing it: by operating a phone sex line.
I love the way uptight Lauren and freewheeling Katie play off each other, and the story, in which they eventually pull together their respective skills to make some serious moola, is shockingly realistic in these economic times. The movie doesn't come out until Fall, but check out the NSFW trailer and let me know what you think after the jump.
