Interview with ‘Dinner for Schmucks’ director Jay Roach – Hollywood In Ten

HollywoodNews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s interview feature, “Hollywood In Ten,” showcases the creative individuals responsible for the movies we love and corners them for 10 quality minutes.

Recently, Anthony D’Alessandro caught up with “Dinner for Schmucks” director Jay Roach who has a reputation for catapulting comedies to the top of the box office chart. Since first working with Mike Myers on the first “Austin Powers” in 1997, Roach’s producer-director credits have racked up over $2.2 billion at the global B.O.

Roach talks about his criteria for choosing projects, “Austin Powers 4,” method comedic actors, stand-up Emo Philips, a looming Tom Hanks feature and his role outside the director’s chair on the third “Meet the Parents” chapter, “Little Fockers” (which Roach still served as producer on).

“Dinner for Schmucks,” based on the 1998 French film “The Dinner Game” follows a burgeoning financial executive played by Paul Rudd, who in order to peg his way up the company ladder, must bring an idiot to a dinner that his boss (Bruce Greenwood) is hosting. The idea of the event is for upper class people to poke fun at real life wackos. Rudd finds a wacko in Steve Carell’s Barry, a sincere man with a flair for recreating famed paintings with stuffed dead mice.
