Interesting quote from Bradley from a recent interview with Deadline (to promote his latest film American Sniper):
Quote:
DEADLINE: First time I noticed you was in Wedding Crashers, and at the time I thought, there’s an actor who can play the prototypical bully like Johnny in Karate Kid or Biff in Back To The Future. Were you confident enough then, on that set with all those great actors, to think you were going to be able to show all these colors?
COOPER: You mean, did I know where I was going in my career? Oh, no. How could I know that? How could anybody? No, I was so over the moon, I mean, that was a huge get for me. You look at it one way and I completely understand that, you only know what you see. But I was coming from a TV show where I played the nicest guy, the unrequited love guy. I was going to all these auditions and they’d say, nah, he’s just too nice a guy. And then David Dobkin gave me a break, to play the heavy in this movie. To be in a comedy with Christopher Walken, and Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. Vince Vaughn was like my hero, playing at the top of his game. The things they were doing every day. I went to work every day even when I wasn’t shooting, just to watch them work. I’d sit there, mesmerized, and feel lucky just to be there.

When it got time for me to get on the field with them, I knew I had to bring it, hard. And I remember feeling what it was like to get comfortable with them, feeling, OK, I’m supposed to be here. They say, OK, make up some story about one of your treks, what? You know, with the seal and the otter and then Owen’s sitting there looking at me and you can see it, he feels like, I know this Sack Lodge guy, this crazy sociopathic a**hole. I went to high school with guys like this. And then it just builds from there. You don’t know where it is going but it’s why you just never quit. Otherwise, I never would’ve been cast in American Sniper or Elephant Man. Two years ago if you said they’re casting Chris Kyle, no way are they thinking of me. John Merrick on Broadway? Wouldn’t happen. That has been my road this whole time. I don’t know anything else. I’ve been very, very lucky, but at the same time it’s never been like I felt like I could sit back and have this stuff just come to me. If you love something enough, go after it. I know there are plenty of people with that love and energy, and I just feel so lucky to have the opportunity to utilize it. I know guys I went to grad school with who are more talented that I am, who haven’t been able to sit in the trenches with Robert De Niro and explore and work on the scene in the attic of a house until we get it right. It’s insane to sit there with Clint Eastwood and talk about a shot and how we’re going to do it, or sit in the room with David O. Russell.

Vince Vaughn also talked about Wedding Crashers in his Playboy interview:

Quote:
Wedding Crashers was your highest-grossing comedy, bringing in more than $200 million worldwide—perhaps the most ever paid for a hand job under a banquet table.

Right? Crashers is an adult situation comedy. I think that movie did well because it really captures how guys talk—the purple stuff, the explicit tone and language. It was a blast to work with Owen on that. We had never really worked together, aside from a cameo in Zoolander, and Crashers just went all-out on the content. You have to do that sometimes in a movie. It’s sort of a relief to people when your characters say things people are thinking but don’t have the nerve to say. When you pull away from that sort of content, it can really mess up a film.

Thanks for the quote Lis! It's going to be interesting to see Rachel and Vince on screen again with such a different dynamic (given that their characters in TD actually share screen time together of course)

Bradley's impression of Christopher Walken is also worth the watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNVx...outu.be&t=3m3s

I'm not sure I can see a Wedding Crashers sequel work, story-wise I think there is not much room left to tell something original. At the same time, this cast was so great so even with a bad plot it would probably be so much fun to see them all together again.

I totally agree, but it would be so much more fun if they did like a skit for a late-night show or something where they just actually crashed weddings. I gotta pitch this to someone.

^^ Absolutely. A great cast can make even the worst plot enjoyable.

I was making gifs for this the other day, and it has been a while since I saw this movie and sort of forgot how adorable she is in this:

HEART. EYES.

Every time this movie is on a channel I can tell because Twitter kind of explodes about how perfect she is in this role and they are not wrong.

So looks like Wedding Crashers 2 might actually happen:
Quote:
Isla Fisher appeared on the Today show Thursday to promote her new film, Nocturnal Animals, and was also asked about the potential for a follow-up to the 2005 hit Wedding Crashers. “I bumped into Vince Vaughn at a party and he said that apparently we’re going to be making a sequel,” she revealed. “So I’m really excited to see what happened to Gloria.”

While Fisher may have gotten the scoop from Vaughn, she admits that she doesn’t know if it’s a done deal yet. “I shouldn’t really announce it on morning television,” she joked. “But apparently there’s some talk of it, which is fun.”
Isla Fisher says there might be a Wedding Crashers 2 | EW.com
The video:

Starts around the 03:20 mark
