HOLLYWOOD – Hulk Hogan has taken over from Jason Segel to star with Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape 2.
Sex Tape was the most successful comedy of all time, both financially, critically and popularly, and many wondered how the sequel Sex Tape 2 could ever live up to the heights of the original. Well, that question has now been answered. Hulk Hogan is to take the place of Jason Segel as Jay in the new film.
Hulk came into the Studio Exec den to talk about his new film:
I haven’t done comedy for a long time. And so it was great when Jason Kaufman – the director – came to me and said that I would be perfect for Jay. I don’t physically look like Jason Segel, but I am such a huge fan of the original Sex Tape (who isn’t?) I feel like I’ve been trying to prepare for Jay my whole life. And when I met Cameron and we did our first table read I just thought this is perfect. The sparks really were flying. So I don’t think we’ll have any problem with the chemistry.
Did your own problems with a sex tape have any bearing on you landing the role?
What? Oh yeah. I did get a suit settled recently in my favor. Yeah. Hey, you know, I never thought of that. It does tie in a little. Thanks man, I’ll use that in my preparation.
