Kristen Wiig - interview about Paul
We're dying for more information about Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's alien-encounter comedy Paul, especially now that it's been delayed. Luckily, we cornered co-star Kristen Wiig, and mind-probed her to learn more about the film's science-fictional in-jokes.
During a roundtable discussion for her next film MacGruber at SXSW, Kristen Wiig shared a tiny Paul moment, that already has excited. It's no secret that writers Frost and Pegg are massive genre geeks. And this film, about two comic book nerds on a road trip to San Diego Comic Con who pick up an alien along the way, is packed with genre in-jokes. And if what Wiig shared is typical of the rest of the film, there should be plenty more nods to classic science fiction.
What kind of character do you get to play in Paul?
I play a girl who lives with a very sort of controlling, very Christian religious father and I don't believe in evolution or any of that stuff. So when I finally see Paul, the alien, I kind of freak out, and question what God is, and all that stuff.
Are you up on all the science fiction references that Simon and Nick do?
Some of them, yes. There's a scene in a bar where they are actually playing the Star Wars bar song, [The Cantina Scene]. But it's a country version so it's sort of slow — so you need to kind of already know that. But a lot of people who knew it were like, "oh my God!" But I didn't really.
