Aziz Ansari took a break from being Kanye West's BFF to film a movie with Jesse Eisenberg called 30 Minutes Or Less. The movie is about two fledgling criminals who kidnap a pizza delivery guy, strap a bomb to his chest and inform him that he has mere hours to rob a bank or else. Kaboom!
The movie opens in theaters everywhere this Friday August 12, 2011, and Aziz and Jesse took the time to talk to GlobalGrind to discuss their hilarious new movie.
Check it out below!
You guys play two best friends in this film with a very tumultuous kind of relationship. Can you tell us a bit about that?
Aziz: Yeah, so in the film we play best friends and early in the movie, I find out that he slept with my twin sister and this kind of leads to us having this huge fight. We break off our friendship and then soon afterwards, these bad guys force him to rob a bank and he has nowhere else to turn to but me. So it kind of becomes the way we reconcile our friendship, as we have to go on this crazy adventure. It’s really a fun movie because it’s like, what would the two regular guys do if they had to rob a bank?
One of our favorite scenes with the two of you is your fight. Can you tell us about shooting that scene and what that was like?
Aziz Ansari: Wait, what was the fight?
The physical fight, y'all kicking each other’s butts!
Aziz Ansari: Is that when the two talking monkeys were...
No, that would be you and Jesse on the floor kicking each other’s butts.
Aziz Ansari: I didn’t see this movie, I only saw The Zookeeper. I didn’t see 30 Minutes.
So we guess you can’t comment.
Aziz Ansari: There are no talking animals in that movie?
No, no talking animals.
Aziz Ansari: I thought there were going to be gorillas.
