MTV is about to be invaded by movie stars.
Before the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, MTV is throwing its first-ever MTV Movie Awards Takeover.
What does that mean? Well, basically, all of your favorite stars from the summer’s most anticipated movies will take over MTV for exclusive, full-day, on-air profiles in the week before the MTV Movie Awards on April 13.
From April 7 to April 11, stars like Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Dwayne Johnson, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler will join correspondent Josh Horowitz to talk movies and their favorite MTV Movie Awards memories.
Even better, each night at 11 p.m. ET/PT, MTV will unveil exclusive teasers for new blockbusters, including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “22 Jump Street,” “Hercules,” “Neighbors” and “Blended.” You’ll even get an amazing first look at Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” because we know you can’t wait ’til August for that one.
Then, after watching a week of your favorite stars, you’ll be all set for the 2014 MTV Movie Awards with new host Conan O’Brien on Sunday, April 13.
So prepare for a total movie takeover of MTV. We couldn’t be more excited about it.
Dave Franco isn’t above attending a naked foam party.
toofab’s Brian Particelli talked to the star of “Neighbors” hot off the film’s successful SXSW premiere in Austin, Texas — where he got candid about his days in college, hazing on the set of the film and revealed which celeb he’d hate to have move in next door.
The 28-year-old actor plays Zac Efron’s fraternity brother in the movie, due out in May, and is no stranger to frat parties in real life.
“I had a lot of friends who were in fraternities,” the USC alum says. “I would go to these parties where the entire house, they would fill it with foam and people would be naked.”
“It wasn’t consistently that debaucherous,” Franco adds. “I was the kid who would get invited to all the frat parties by my friends. Eventually, going to these parties for four years, they were like ‘Alright, he’s O.K.’”
And while he missed out on all the top secret hazing rituals while he was matriculating, he got to make up for it on the set of the film.
Check out the video above to find out how the cast hazed one of the stars. It involves another guy’s butt, a pile of mud and condoms. Oh, college.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are teaming up again for the highly anticipated sequel to the hit film, 21 Jump Street.
In 22 Jump Street, the two actors will reprise their roles as detectives posing as students, but this time instead of high school, they work undercover at a local college. As the detectives try to crack a case, college life takes a toll on their relationship.
Schmidt (Hill) gets involved with the school’s art scene, and Jenko (Tatum) strikes up a friendship with a football player who turns out to be a kindred spirit. As immature as any of the real students, Schmidt and Jenko allow the changes in their lives to come between them, and the guys start to question their partnership.
Other original cast members returning for the sequel include Ice Cube as Captain Dickson and Dave Franco (Now You See Me) as Eric Molson. The film also features Amber Stevens (The Amazing Spider-Man), Peter Stormare (Pain & Gain) and Wyatt Russell (Cowboys & Aliens).
This action comedy has two directors: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who recently teamed up on The Lego Movie. As with the first picture, which was based on the TV series, Michael Bacall wrote the screenplay from the story he wrote with Jonah Hill. Collaborating with Bacall on this project were Rodney Rothman (Grudge Match) and Oren Uziel, whose writing credits include the video game Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.
22 Jump Street blows into theaters nationwide on June 13.
