On Saturday, May 18, I was invited out to the Four Season Hotel in Los Angeles to attend the press junket for Pixar’s new film, ‘Monsters University’. I was lucky enough to attend the event with some fellow bloggers, where we got to sit and talk with both Billy Crystal and John Goodman, and discuss their new film. There’s nothing like being able to sit down and listen to two of the most iconic men in Hollywood. It was very cool, as well as enlightening. They touched on everything from the things that kept them up at night as kids, what it was like working with the film’s director Dan Scanton, the relationship between Mike and Sulley, and so much more. Hit the jump for my thoughts on the event and some of the answers, photos, and the full audio of the Q&A.
One of the things that I found so incredibly interesting during the Q&A session, which shouldn’t have surprised me, was just how funny the duo were outside of their films. The chemistry that Mike and Sulley have on screen is very much alive in their real lives as well, and you can tell. This is why the characters work together so well, because of the incredible chemistry between these two men. They were constantly playing off of each other, much like their characters do, so it’s great to see they work together off screen as well.
