Kit Bowen: Hello!

Kylie Bunbury & Lamorne Morris: Hi there.

Kit Bowen: Oh, this was fun.

Kylie Bunbury: Yay! You liked it.

Lamorne Morris: Nice.

Kit Bowen: I loved it.

Lamorne Morris: Thank you.

Kit Bowen: I have to ask you a question. How hard was it to work with this guy and keep a straight face?

Lamorne Morris: Very difficult.

Kylie Bunbury: Oh, I thought you were going to ask how hard it was to work with him in general and I was going to say…No, but he’s really funny.

Lamorne Morris: Oh thank you.

Kylie Bunbury: It was hard. It was hard at times. Actually, we would get into some laughing fits wouldn’t we?

Lamorne Morris: There were times where I would just say a random joke.

Kylie Bunbury: And I would die.

Lamorne Morris: And she would laugh.

Kylie Bunbury: And it’s on my coverage. So mean. I go stop, don’t do it, don’t do it. Or he’d give me a face.

Kit Bowen: What was the most fun scene to shoot? Or the scene where you couldn’t get through?

Lamorne Morris: The ladder. For me.

Kylie Bunbury: Yeah, I was going to say the ladder scene.

Lamorne Morris: It was difficult.

Kylie Bunbury: Well, climbing the thing to the skyroof.

Lamorne Morris: It was fun and rewarding. In fact, it was a bit challenging.

Kit Bowen: Yeah?

Kylie Bunbury: Climb it and be funny.

Lamorne Morris: Be funny, look back, do these certain things.

Kylie Bunbury: Talk to me.

Lamorne Morris: I was like, there’s a lot going on during this dance.

Kylie Bunbury: Lot of pieces.

Lamorne Morris: Lot of pieces and to watch the final product, I’m glad that it works.

Kit Bowen: Did you actually have to fall as well, or was that a stunt double?

Lamorne Morris: No, I volunteered.

Kit Bowen: Did you?

Lamorne Morris: Yeah, yeah, I volunteered.

Kit Bowen: Because you do your own stunts.

Lamorne Morris: I do my own stunts, yeah, yeah, yeah. I don’t use vests when they shoot at me, I say give me real bullets, because this is supposed to be real life. And that’s just how I chose to live.

Kylie Bunbury: Of course, of course.

Kit Bowen: So how competitive are you guys?

Kylie Bunbury: The most. I’m just very competitive. I grew up with brothers, so very, very competitive. Yeah, I don’t like to lose.

Kit Bowen: What was the most outrageous thing you have ever done in a competitive situation?

Kylie Bunbury: Screamed in someone’s face? Screamed in someone’s face and maybe hit them.

Lamorne Morris: Oh, yes.

Kit Bowen: And what kind of game were you playing, that you had to hit them?

Kylie Bunbury: It probably was basketball, or when I played soccer or something. And it was like my brothers. I’m not just hitting my friends.

Lamorne Morris: I just hit a kid from the park, I don’t know why.

Kylie Bunbury: Some random kid.

Lamorne Morris: I’m super competitive. But I’m competitive and I don’t really care about the outcome. I’m more of an in the moment competitor, meaning I want to fight and argue and scream, but if you beat me, I don’t care.

Kylie Bunbury: Afterwards you don’t care.

Lamorne Morris: Yeah, I mean I don’t care if I lose.

Kylie Bunbury: But that’s also you pretending as well. Because I’ll do that, I’ll be like, “I don’t even care about this.”

Lamorne Morris: No, I truly don’t.

Kylie Bunbury: Oh, okay.

Lamorne Morris: Because unless it’s something real, like if there’s money on the line, that’s a different story, but if were playing a board game and your going to go home.

Kylie Bunbury: I know,  it doesn’t really hold any weight.

Lamorne Morris: I’m super competitive in bowling.

Kylie Bunbury: You’re a good bowler. Wait, are you the good bowler?

Lamorne Morris: I’m a really good bowler.

Kylie Bunbury: I don’t know about that actually, hold on.

Lamorne Morris: I am.

Kylie Bunbury: Oh yeah, that’s right, you are.

Lamorne Morris: Yeah, I got 265 once.

Kit Bowen: And did you win that game?

Lamorne Morris: Yeah. I hope so. Wait, who beat me? Oh my God.

Kit Bowen:  I remember with my sister, we played Risk, I got mad, I flipped the board.

Kylie Bunbury: Yeah.

Lamorne Morris: Just tore the whole place up.

Kylie Bunbury: In your face. There’s all the pieces.

Kit Bowen: Yeah. They’re all on the ground now, no one has any allies anymore.

Kylie Bunbury: All enemies.

Kit Bowen: Screw you Australia. I’m just getting rid of this whole thing all together.

Lamorne Morris: Oh yeah.

Kit Bowen: Do you have a good poker face though?

Lamorne Morris: Do you know what? I have a good poker face but I don’t know how to play poker. That was my poker face. I’m the best at poker.

Kit Bowen: So but what is your favorite board game?

Kylie Bunbury: My favorite is Taboo.

Lamorne Morris: Jesus.

Kylie Bunbury: I love Taboo.

Kit Bowen: Why is that?

Kylie Bunbury: I’m a good guesser. And I think I’m a good clue giver. And I think I’m just good at games in general. So Taboo it is for me.

Lamorne Morris: She’s okay.

Kit Bowen: Well, that sounds good to me. This was lot of fun though. Every person is going to relate to this movie.

Kylie Bunbury: Yeah. It’s just fun.

Lamorne Morris: Nice.

Kylie Bunbury: Glad you liked it.
