Made in Hollywood TV Show Previews The Nice Guys, Neighbors 2 and The Angry Birds Movie

Work never felt so much like play for the stars of “The Nice Guys,” “Neighbors 2” and “The Angry Birds Movie,” all previewed on this weekend’s Made in Hollywood TV show, which you can find in your area by plugging in your zip code on “Where to Watch” on the homepage.

Taking on Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling was a breeze for Matt Bomer, who found himself armed to the teeth in the action buddy comedy “The Nice Guys,” opening Friday.

“I had one scene where I get to shoot four different guns in one take — a submachine gun, two different handguns, another machine gun,” Bomer tells Made in Hollywood reporter Patrick Stinson. “It was just a blast, man.”

For Crowe, the biggest challenge was keeping his feet on the ground. “It was a very physical experience, probably more so for Ryan because he’s falling out of buildings and stuff, you know,” he says. “I didn’t have to do as much — I did jump through a window or two.”

In “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” also opening Friday, Seth Rogen got to improvise on set with an all-star lineup of professional funny people. Ike Barinholtz, Billy Eichner, Lisa Kudrow, Abbi Jacobson and more joined actors Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Chloe Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons and Beanie Feldstein.

“One of my favorite things about the movie is how many different comedians that I’m just a big fan of are in it,” Rogen tells Made in Hollywood’s Julie Harkness Arnold. “It’s so much fun … getting to work with these guys.”

And in “The Angry Birds Movie,” the characters voiced by Josh Gad and Jason Sudeikis share screen time, even if the actors recorded their parts separately. Gad told Made in Hollywood’s Kylie Erica Mar that he brought a cardboard cutout of Sudeikis into the studio — much to Sudeikis’ later surprise.

“Where did you get that?” he asked. “I didn’t even know they existed.”

“Like rundown Blockbuster stores,” Gad joked. “They still have them. Like abandoned apocalyptic Blockbusters. That’s all they’ve got left. They’ve got two copies of Monster Squad and a Jason Sudeikis cardboard cutout.”
