Aubrey Plaza Says “Scott Pilgrim” Casting Was ‘Meant To Be’

Now that “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” has wrapped principal photography, the movie’s many cast members are starting to talk about their work on the Edgar Wright-directed comic book adaptation. Today, actress Aubrey Plaza is getting in on that action.

Plaza plays Julie Powers in “Scott Pilgrim,” the occasional girlfriend of Scott’s band mate Stephen Stills. The actress spoke with Making Of about the film’s “perfectly” weird faithfulness to the Bryan Lee O’Malley-created graphic novels. “There’s a lot of weird, really perfectly casted people,” said Plaza. “Alison Pill really looks like Kim Pine, Michael [Cera] really looks like Scott Pilgrim in a weird way, so everybody kind of weirdly looks like their character. You almost feel like it was meant to be.”

The actress is perhaps best known for her role in last summer’s “Funny People,” and while Plaza had plenty of comedy to wade through in “Scott Pilgrim,” she admitted that there was an entirely new element for her in the movie’s action component. “It’s kind of a crazy movie because it’s a comedy, but it’s also an action film,” she said. “It was a different way of working—a lot more technical, not a lot of improv. There’s no room to improvise when there’s a blue screen and camera craning at these weird times. You have to really be hitting all of the beats and everything. So it was a learning experience for me, because I’m used to kind of just saying whatever I want.”

And who says learning can’t be fun? Certainly not Plaza, who had nothing but great things to say about filming the comic book movie. “It was really fun,” she said. “Edgar is awesome. He’s really great. Everyone in the cast was really great—they’re all a combination of really funny but also really great actors.”

“Mystery Team” Trailer

July 21, 2009   Comments Off on “Mystery Team” Trailer   Movies, Videos

The second trailer for one of Aubrey’s new films, “Mystery Team” is now released. You can stream the trailer below.

You have not seen absurdly funny internet comedy until you’ve experienced (almost) anything by the NYC-based group Derrick Comedy. Only two years ago, they were dominating Youtube with their hilarious skits like “Girls Aren’t To Be Trusted.” In fact, their video “Bro Rape” can be blamed in ironic part on having created the “bro” stereotype. Both “Family Guy” and the Nintendo Gamecube were never seen in a “bro” context until Derrick Comedy’s famous spoofing of a “Dateline” special popped up on the web. Check out these videos and more HERE.

Now, the group is taking their ability to write the absurd to the big screen, with their first feature film called “Mystery Team”. The Sundance favorite stars the three main members of the group, Donald Glover, DC Pierson, and Dominic Dierkes, as three wannabe detectives who decide to solve an actual murder case despite their infantile nature and lack of actual experience. Aubrey Plaza, who you might develop a crush on after seeing “Funny People”, also has a part in the film.

Considering the success Derrick Comedy has had in the past, (and also that this doesn’t look as unoriginally disastrous as Miss March, the flop from the other famous comedy group Whitest Kids U Know), I think I’m going to check this one out. It looks like a pretty outrageous small-budget film, even if the wacky humor plays to a more select audience.
