Question: Were you bummed then that all the cool stuff happens to Alison?
Justin Long: She is much stronger than I am though, I will say that. I kind of thought it was cool that there is a movie where the protagonist, this strong center of the movie is a female. My part is normally played by women in these movies.
My friends...They asked me about what I play and I said, "Here's what I play. I say, 'Baby, everything is going to be okay. It's gonna be fine. I'm gonna be in the other room if you need me, but don't worry.' I go in the other room and all the stuff happens to Alison, like all the fun horror movies. And I run back and I go, 'Baby are you okay? I'm here. What happened?' End scene and fade out."
And you know what? I'm fine with that. I was so happy. I said to Sam when I met him, "I will do anything in your movie." And I meant that. I would walk across the screen, shit my pants and keep walking if it means being in your movie, like absolutely. So, I'm just happy to be part of it, truly, truly.
