So as many of you have heard already, specifically through the disapproval of Kevin & Bean, I, Beer Mug, had the awesome opportunity to travel to Hawaii to be an extra in the film, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Immediately after I touched down in Honolulu, the intense research for my role as an extra began.
First, I attended a traditional luau where I was picked out of the audience to dance the hula on stage.
I went on an inspirational nature hike to Manoa Falls.
I took a catamaran ride around the iconic Diamond Head.
Oh, and I also might’ve had a couple of cocktails….but who’s counting.
I also had the opportunity to meet and sit down with the film’s stars, Zac Efron, Adam Devine, Aubrey Plaza, and Anna Kendrick. Not only were they super cool, they gave a ton of insight on the film and what it’s like to actually shoot a major motion picture.
But guys, let’s face it, it wasn’t all fun and games…I actually did have to do some “hard” work.
This is me after my grueling 1 hour filming schedule on the set.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is set to be released next year, and here’s hoping they shoot a sequel in Hawaii and call on me to reprise my role as a background extra.
