Chat live with 'Five-Year Engagement' director Nicholas Stoller
Writer-director Nicholas Stoller will be joining The Times' Amy Kaufman at 2:30 p.m. Pacific today to talk about his latest collaboration with star Jason Segel, "The Five-Year Engagement." Stoller will also be answering reader questions about anything from "Five-Year Engagement" or any of his other collaborations with Segel.
Stoller and Segel met on the set of the short-lived Judd Apatow series "Undeclared" in 2001. Since then, they have collaborated on "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "The Muppets" and "Engagement," all of which have also starred Segel.
Stoller also wrote the script for Segel's 2010 movie "Gulliver's Travels," which was a big international hit.
And for those who are curious, Segel does drop his pants again as he did famously in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but don't expect full-frontal nudity again. Though Segel was ready and willing to bear all once again in the name of comedy, Stoller decided there was just no room in this movie for Segel in total.
The film, which also stars Emily Blunt, Alison Brie and Chris Pratt, opens in theaters today and is expected to top the box-office charts.
[Updated, 2 p.m. April 27: Stoller is delayed by traffic. We expect the chat to begin at 2:30 p.m.]
