*No plans this weekend?…How about time travel?
‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2,‘ the sequel to the 2010 cult hit, arrives in theaters today (02-20-15).
EUR was On The Scene to talk to co-stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, and Clark Duke about the science fiction comedy.
EUR: If you got to bring back an item or thing from your past, what would it be?
Craig Robinson: More afros. I would make mine as long and as big as possible.
Adam Scott: I would get The Ark of the Covenant from ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’ because that thing causes a lot of trouble. You have to keep it in a safe place.
Clark Duke: I would bring back the word gnarly.
Brandon T. Jackson: Teddy Ruxpin and Skeletor from ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!’ I would bring back the toys from the 80’s. The 80’s were a fun era, they had all the cool toys. Like My Buddy (doll)!
EUR: What does HTTM2 have that audiences didn’t see in the first film?
Craig Robinson: Driver-less Uber. It’s like driverless future cars. And then there is ‘Choozy Doozy Celebrity’ where I take down Rob Corddry from behind.
This go around Nick (Robinson) is plagiarizing songs, Lou (Corddry) is claiming he invented the internet, while Clark (Duke) negotiates with an assassin. At a dinner party, honoring Lou, he is shot. The crew then fires up the hot tub to travel back in time. Inadvertently, the fellas land in 2025 and have to alter the future to save the past…which is actually present-day.

EUR: Who should take Jon Stewarts’ seat on ‘The Daily Show?’
Rob Corddry: This movie predicts Jessica Williams. In this movie Jessica Williams is on ‘The Daily Show’ as the host. I feel like I should stick by my candidate. (Williams has tweeted she extremely under-qualified for the job)…I’m not ready either. Nobody is ready for that job. I would pick someone that no one knows…a very young political comic.
