Improv at its worst?
In a new interview with Playboy, Jason Sudeikis reveals that his scene-stealing moment in Hall Pass (where he masturbates in his car while listening to Air Supply) wasn't exactly an homage to Fast Times at Ridgemont High or There's Something About Mary.
"One key difference is that I was really doing it. That wasn't a part of the script; it was just something I was doing during a break in shooting," Sudeikis, 35, jokes. "They were doing a lighting setup and they caught me. We're actually in litigation for that whole scene."
Sudeikis claims he visited Chatroulette ("that website where guys masturbate for strangers") to prep for the raunchy scene. "My moves in Hall Pass are an amalgamation of, I don't know, maybe 20,000 different dudes," he kids. "I took the facial expressions from SexHog22; I took the hand motions from GrizzlyBearDong. Those guys really know what they're doing."
"My mom got my dad a Playboy subscription as a wedding gift way back in 1969, so I grew up in a house where Playboy was readily available," Sudeikis explains. "I have a strong face and name recognition for Playmates between the late 1980s and early 1990s, and a lot of those images are still floating around up there in my head. If you showed me 100 faces of pretty naked ladies from that period, I could point out which 12 of them were actual Playmates."
