Earlier today Christopher Mintz-Plasse & Dave answered a few fan questions on Reddit before they head off on their ‘Epic Adventure.’ They answered questions about their acting, friendship, food and more! Below are a few of Dave’s answers, but read the full Q&A at reddit.com
Dave, you had a cameo as a classmate of Jonah Hill’s in Superbad, yet then played a high schooler in 21 Jump Street when he played a mid-20s cop. Is he aging in double speed, or are you aging at half speed?
The most simple way to answer this is: I look like a fetus. I try to grow facial hair, but it sprouts out of my face in patches– leaving me looking like a Chris Mintz Plasse- type. It’s embarrassing.
Hi! In y’alls opinion, what’s the worst/most nerve-wracking part of auditions? I love acting, but auditions terrify me.
Also, y’all crack me up, and I’d add more…but well…I’m supposed to be working. OH! Any recommendations on music?
auditioning sucks. and never really gets easier… a casting director once asked me to “slate” (which basically means to look into the camera and say your name), and I misheard her and thought she asked me to “sleep.”… so ya, i slept in an audition. I slept so fucking hard.
Dave you’re my favorite Franco brother. When you cast as Kol in Scrubs, were most of your lines scripted or was there a lot of improv on your part? Also why didn’t you roast your brother?! Would have been so good.
A.) you clearly haven’t met our other brother, Tom… he’s the unanimous favorite. B.) The writing for Scrubs was really smart, but they still allowed us to be loose with the material. I tried to sing whenever possible– cause if you hadn’t noticed, I sound like a huge douche when i sing– which was perfect for the role. C.) I woulda bombed.
What are you guys’ favorite food and celebrity crush?
sushi & Helen Miren
What do you smell like?
aloe vera natural soap
Dave: Did you really throw up for reals on Chris’s face in You’re so Hot Pt2? Also if you could be any piece of candy, which would you be?
-Yes. I hate white sauce–all white sauce. -I would be a the stick in a packet of Fun-Dip
Growing up as a two strapper in the 90′s, I just wanted to say that you made me realise everything i fought for when i was two strapping was worth it. do you have any other similar tips on how to stay fresh and in the game? also would you ever consider hosting the oscars?
the flannel tied around the waste is coming back in a BIG way. Also, you can never go wrong with hippo-shaped Silly Bandz.
Dave, when breaking into the industry did you feel any pressure to get out from the shadow of your brother’s success?
It’s definitely been a struggle… as much as I love and respect him and am proud to be his brother, I’ve been doing everything I can to stand on my own feet… maybe, mayyybe one day, one person miiiight approach him and say “hey! You’re dave franco’s older brother!”
