Uncomfortable Jason Sudeikis Interview

by Eric Melin on August 27, 2008

in Features


Jason Sudeikis (“30 Rock,” “Saturday Night Live”) is so good as the rock-band manager in the new movie “The Rocker” that he pretty much steals the show. Being rockers ourselves, we wanted to do something a little different than the normal junket interview. Sudeikis was in town promoting “The Rocker” (starring Rainn Wilson), so we ambushed the comedy star with a homegrown rock n’ roll quiz to see how much of his portrayal was a result of Method acting. As it turns out, this didn’t quite go exactly as planned. This is probably the last time we try to quiz a movie star. Yikes! Maybe we should just stick to the regular junket questions. Anyway, enjoy this very uncomfortable interview with Jason Sudeikis from a dirty hotel room somewhere in Kansas City.

Eric is the Editor-in-Chief of Scene-Stealers.com and writes the Screen Stealers column for The Pitch. He’s President of the KCFCC, and drummer for The Dead Girls and Ultimate Fakebook. He is also Air Guitar World Champion Mean Melin. Eric goes to 11. Follow him at:

Nice! I can easily say that Jason Sudeikis was the best part of “The Rocker” for me. Very funny, and definitely uncomfortable. Kevin, this has definitely got to be fake, no one guesses Elton John as an ex-Beatle (or i hope so at least).

Yeah, I sometimes lose my faith in humanity. Very funny stuff. Stryper was the best.

Towards the end, there is no way that could be real. Elton John? Ha ha.

Mr. Sudeikis’s response to the interviewers’ question about the Beatles is an homage to Pete Best, and that is funny. The list of U2 albums by the interviewer is an homage to a band that was started by its drummer. That’s funny. The interview is conducted by a drummer, and the movie “The Rocker” is about a drummer. All funny. Though I was mentioned, I was not uncomfortable. [Aside: Saying that one knows who Mandy Moore is, is what the A&R Guys might call "good business"]
