Comedian, writer, actor and director David Wain went on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to talk about “They Came Together” which is a rom com but its a joke, a spoof, a purposely stupid homage, a deconstruction of the genre, yet still an actual rom com, starring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, and the city of New York.
He also told Seth that yes, there is going to be a prequel of the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer. And yes, the whole cast is coming back to play their former selves, BEFORE the original takes place. How far before? about two months. Haven’t you always wondered what just happened a few weeks before Wet Hot American Summer started?
David Wain has directed Role Models, Wanderlust and Wet Hot American Summer, as well as the sketch comedy series The State, he also voices The Warden on the Adult Swim series Superjail! and produces, writes and directs Childrens Hospital.
