Sound Bite: Ashton Kutcher & Rob Corddry – on fake fighting
Corddry – I love fake punching, and or taking a fake punch, love it, there’s nothing more fun than that.
Kutcher – when I was in high school, we had like a combat class, we did like, we actually did in my high school acting class, we did a combat class where we were supposed to like learn. It’s like it’s the silliest idea of all time to give a bunch of high schoolers like staffs and bos as if like somehow I was gonna be playing like an African in like a film where I’m gonna have to have like a staff and a bo and like fight or like an Incan, Mayan refu, like I’m like, at what point in time am I gonna be playing a character that I’m gonna be carrying a staff and a bo that I’m fighting with I don’t quite.
Corddry – I was in college and my roommate and I would be hanging out and be like, hey you wanna go outside and fake fight? And he’d be like, Yeah, alright. And we’d go outside on the lawn and fake fight. What’s more fun than that?
Kutcher – it’s very uh yeah, and plus when Zach Galifianakis does this, that was his move, and I was like, you didn’t have that fighting class in high school did you? He did like this weird like leverage this, you’re, you actually took the blow pretty nice there, you have this angle, we’re gonna show you how this works, we’re gonna show you how to take a punch Vegas style.
Corddry – Now look, the victim’s always in charge.
Kutcher – now here’s the thing, you’re in charge, now what we’re gonna do, for this camera because of this angle where it is, I’m gonna punch you this way, in front of your face but it’s gonna scrape, but when I do that you have to flip, turn your head that way, okay, so, no no no no, what the hell was that?
Corddry – That was terrible. That was terrible.
Kutcher – You’re clearly not an actor. Okay so so so when I punch, you turn your head sort of up in that direction, like gush, yeah ok like that ok now that was a slow-mo version
Corddry – now add a sound effect.
Kutcher – now I’m gonna do it again, ready? Wa-pish. How did that look? Was it? It’s a connect! You have now learned out to take a punch, a comedic punch.
Brooks – Do I get my SAG card?
Kutcher – and I don’t know if you heard me do the wa-pish
Corddry – you did, it sounded just like a punch.
Brooks – Great sound effect.
Kutcher – that’s how punches sound.
Corddry – Did you really hit him?
Kutcher – That’s how they sound. Rob got scared.
