Interviewing the actors for FINAL DESTINATION 5 was probably one of the most entertaining experiences I’ve had working here. It is refreshing to see such excitement and genuine coolness from a group of thespians, all happily promoting their latest fright flick. In fact, Arlen Escarpeta, P.J. Byrne and Courtney B. Vance seemed to be running their room like the party room.
You walk in and their energy was infectious. Whether we were talking about shoes, my hat, or where the next Final Destination should take place. How about a hot dog stand? This idea really turned the great Courtney B. Vance into mush when I mentioned “hot dog soup”. There are no major spoilers here - aside from a couple of hints at Arlen’s death - just group hugs and silliness!
Final Destination 5 slices its way into theatres this Friday at a theatre near you.
