Learn who Adam Scott plays in Hot Tub Time Machine 2

08.20.2013by:

Time travel stories can be tricky; every plot element has to work just so or your entire story can unravel. Even the acclaimed LOOPER suffered some plot-holes. Movies like HOT TUB TIME MACHINE may not be quite as worried about continuity errors since, well, the movie is a comedy about a hot tub that serves as a time machine. But, at least the filmmakers are trying to keep things in line.

While John Cusack starred in the first film, Adam Scott was cast as the lead in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 when Cusack decided not to return. So, the question everyone asked when Scott was cast was this: will he be playing the same character as Cusack or are they writing him out entirely? With the rest of the principal cast including Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke coming back, something would have to be explained.

Coming Soon may have cracked the case and all it took was asking Rob Corddry directly. When they asked the actor who Adam Scott would be playing, Corddry replied:

"Adam Scott is playing his son from 10 years in the future. His son that was conceived in 1986 on the night with Jenny Stedmeyer."

So, director Steve Pink will still have to explain why John Cusack doesn't appear in the sequel, but at least his character will be referenced and part of the continued story. I don't know about you, but I enjoyed the first film. It may not be a top pick for me to see HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 in the theater, but I would definitely check it out on Blu-ray.

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 is currently filming with no set release date.

Loved the first one and am no doubt anticipating the sequel. Disappointed that Cusack isn't returning, but Adam Scott makes a good addition to the Hot Tub crew.

Excited!

I thought the first one was fucking hillarious so can't wait to see where they take the sequel...
But idk why cusack dosnt just come back, it's not like he's doing anything else and the first one was the most interesting thing he's done in years.
But I do like Adam Scott!

Not really an oddball choice, since John Cusack was a producer on the film and had a large role in the making of this movie.

no obviously you never saw 1408... because John really is a talented actor and hot Tub time Machine was a riot but Cusak was totally an oddball choice since he's doing dramas and horror these days... he went into comedy early in his career but after One Crazy Summer he left that genre....
by the way John Cusak has EIGHT movies in development for 2014.. no wonder he skipped this one.

damn this so could have been the next HANGOVER series

i'll miss John.... I didnt really identify with any of the other actors in Hot Tub Time Machine....
it's kinda like making a Vacation movie without Chevy Chase... oh, they're doing that too?
also did Gillian Jacobs quit Community?

At least we will get to see more Lyndsey Fonseca

I still don't know If I want to see a sequel. Could it be really funny yes but the first one just ended so perfectly. I feel entirely content with life after I finish watching it.

I love Adam Scott, but this news is old...

Rob announced on the Howard Stern show a lot of plot details for this movie already. Which in turn have been made into articles almost 2 months ago for this site...
