Blockers, a film coming out on April 6th, is the story of three parents — John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz — who try to stop their daughters from losing their virginities on prom night. The movie boasts a lot of incredible talent — including our special guest today, Jimmy Bellinger. You’ve seen Jimmy on “The Middle”, and you will see him in Blockers, a movie directed by Pitch Perfect creator Kay Cannon. Bellinger plays Chad, one of the girls’ boyfriends and one of the guys who must most likely must be blocked. He came to CircaPop Live to discuss making this movie with our hosts,e Ryan Mitchell, and guest host Iman Crosson.
So what was it like working on the film? According to Jimmy - incredible. Jimmy loved working with Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena, as he was big fans of them before — Barinholtz on MadTV and Leslie Mann especially. Jimmy loved watching John Cena rise in the comedy world too, and watching him play against type, playing a more sensitive character than he usually does. Jimmy considers the entire experience one of a kind, and said it was very memorable to see John Cena go off to his many celebrity and wrestling duties during the shoot. Fantastic. Blockers come out April 6th, and you’re going to see it, right? What else do you have to do!? Yeesh!
