We caught up for an exclusive video interview with the stars of Let’s Be Cops -- Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Rob Riggle -- and given our Let’s Be Cops review and how much we adored the film, we went in knowing that there could easily be a sequel.
So, we asked the guys, what would they like to see their characters “be” in the follow-up to the film about two guys (Wayans and Johnson) who pretend to be cops?
Their answer, and how these comic geniuses ran with the premise, is hilarious and illustrates why the trio has such comedic chemistry on the screen that was teased in that first Let’s Be Cops red band trailer.
In our above chat, we also wondered of all the moments they shared on the Atlanta set, which would be the one that they most cherished looking back on decades from now.
Wayans’ answer was touching, but watch above as Johnson and Riggle have a field day with their memories of a certain Let’s Be Cops scene where Wayans had a naked, heavily overweight man dragged across his face!
“God forbid the day when Damon passes, and this is many years in the future, his In Memoriam at the Academy Awards is going to be that ball sack going across his face scene!” Riggle said as we all laughed.
Yup, it’s just that kind of interview! Check out Let’s Be Cops in theaters now!
