Despite starring in 2 popular Television shows, Alison Brie isn’t referred to as Pete Campbell’s dutiful wife, Trudy, on AMC’s "Mad Males," nor the straight-laced Annie Edison on NBC’s "Community." She’s a family group title — everybody knows her simply as Alison Brie, (or, based on every guy I understand, "the lady I’ll marry eventuallyInch). So, towards the delight of fans everywhere, the star’s taking her talents towards the giant screen in "5 Year Engagement." The comedy, introduced for you by "Failing to remember Sarah Marshall" team Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel, together with producer Judd Apatow, follows a cursed couple (Segel and Emily Blunt) on their own very, very lengthy walk towards the alter. Here, Brie plays Blunt’s zany sister who dons an english — and dead-on accurate Elmo — accent. Moviefone talked with Brie about her approaching movie, Jason Segel going full-frontal and who the larger asshole is, Pete Cambpell or Pierce Hawthorne. I felt such as this movie were built with a "Four Wedding ceremonies along with a Funeral" vibe. Wow. You realize, I had not considered that in the beginning — it is a great compliment for that movie. "Four Wedding ceremonies along with a Funeral" is just one of my personal favorite romantic comedies. It’s saved on my small Digital recording device. Have you got an exciting-time favorite wedding comedy? ["Four Wedding ceremonies along with a Funeral"] is certainly one of these and most likely "My Close Friends Wedding" — I believe this is a wedding day romantic comedy. "I possibly could be jello." "You are never destined to be jello." [Laughs.] I understand that Emily Blunt assisted you using the accent, however i heard that you simply were practicing inside your vehicle prior to getting the part. I had been. I simply kind of on impulse thought it might be smart to improve on the British accent, so I’d been [hearing] … these accent Compact disks going to operate each morning and going home. Therefore it was like fate. The other accents is the next step? I’d a few other Compact disks — Irish and German — however i could not just whip them out. I’d need to go back and improve around the Compact disks. How about Elmo? Was he inside your repertoire before you decide to were cast? Not whatsoever. It is a new-found talent. It is so funny since i am centered on the British accent just before starting the table read, and that i drawn up a YouTube video of Elmo singing "Elmo’s Song" and viewed it a couple of occasions and that i was like, "Oh, OK. Got that." And That I returned to concentrating on the British, but it is the Elmo voice that totally got me the task. I have known as [Nicholas Stoller] onto it he’s confirmed it. He am looking forward to my Elmo voice following the table read. Within the movie, Chris Pratt attempts to woo you having a pretty lame pick-sponsor. Are you currently frequently the victim of this in tangible existence? Individuals don’t use a lot of pick-up lines on me. I’m not sure that individuals use pick-up lines. Although, I actually do seem like there is a new factor that men do where they, like, insult women. Like, they believe that this is the move. And That I gotta say, it’s not the move. Like, get free from here. Well, my pal saw you together and stated that the "smile is sort of a sunrise." Wow. Who’s your friend? I believe I ought to most likely day him. [Laughs.] Everybody responds for you like this! Have you got creepy groupies now? There have been certainly some odd figures at this show particularly. However I am happy that people had this type of good turnout. It had been the very first time we’d ever performed a show. It isn’t like we are a real "band" — just me and my female friends [and] we like to sing. But it is certainly for entertainment. My album isn’t shedding in the near future. We are not necessarily taking it seriously, we simply sing cover tunes … We are searching toward carrying out a little, small show in LA on Cinco p Mayo, after which we’ll move from there. Was there much thought put in the title from the band? No! [Laughs] No, there is not. I believe we simply did not take ourselves seriously like a "band," and extremely i was calling ourselves "The Women Who Sing Other Individuals Tunes." There is a lot of talk that Jason Segel would do full frontal within this movie. Was that the running joke on-set? Well, anybody who’s seen "Failing to remember Sarah Marshall" is aware of Jason Segel’s full frontal. Regrettably, the entire-frontal scene got cut in the movie so, yeah, we simply essentially made him do full frontal constantly on-set. We’d end up like, "Jason, if we are not likely to view it in theaters, we have to view it now." After which he’d strip lower from his bunny suit? He’d another bunny suit which was only the top 1 / 2 of a bunny suit. After which he’d you need to be naked at the base. It had been strange! And despite the fact that he wasn’t working on that day, he’d just arrived at set, like, putting on that. [Laughs.] Have you ever adjust the bunny suit? No. Because, you realize, following a large, sweaty dude’s been putting on it all day long… it had not been like, "I wish to put that on! That is what I wish to put on." Do you consider pairing you track of Chris Pratt would be a sneaky ploy by NBC to advertise a couple of its hit shows? [Laughs] If only it had been! We certainly need assistance using the promotion. But It only agreed to be a contented accident. Chris is really funny and he’s so sweet and that i seem like despite the fact that we’d seen one another around, we actually had not correctly met until this project, and [we] just hit them back immediately. Who’d you have to say is the larger asshole: Pete Campbell or Pierce Hawthorne? Oh. That’s a difficult one. I suppose, I am talking about, I would say Pete Campbell since i believe that Pierce does not really realize constantly what he’s doing wrong — like he does not mean to become a jerk, he type of just does not know much better. Whereas Pete’s actions appear so premeditated. I understand tensions are running at the top of "Community." Do you feel it on-set? No, no. We’ve a lot fun on-set and that we certainly are a tight-knit group and then any of these things which has been happening, it is all been happening since we have been in hiatus and I have been on vacation… It has not really been the main thing on my thoughts and honestly, after i consider the show, I am attempting to put my energy into praying for any 4th season. That’s type of where my thoughts reaches using the whole factor. Have you got any wants Annie within the 4th season? Well, I simply hope we obtain a 4th season, after which I do not care. They are able to so something with this character. I’ll do anything whatsoever. Even put on a bunny suit? I’ll put on a sweaty, smelly, Jason Segel-worn bunny suit everyday to operate. Not really on the program, just back and forth from work.
