is there anything more fun than this Nick Kroll, definitely not on the set of Almost Destructive don’t worry darling The leading movie that substantiated the hype through controversies, rumors and spit.
Such controversies were not simply born out of thin air. They were masterminded by one Nick Kroll, a marketing genius who doubles as an actor and comedian (or would that mean he triples as a comedian?).
crawl, visible on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday night, we had almost as much fun as we did with all the rumours, sarcastically claiming, “I decided, let’s talk a lot about the movie, but not about the movie.”
Jimmy Fallon recognized Kroll’s greatness and called him a genius, to which Kroll replied, “I’m a puppet.”
He goes on to explain, “I was like ‘Hey, Harry, you know what would be a great idea? When you go to the premiere in Venice, spit on Chris Pine.
Clearly now we know the truth. or we? Kroll immediately threw a curveball when he explained that even though Harry initially agreed to spit on his fellow co-star, he changed his mind. So, now we have to safely assume that Styles didn’t spit on Chris Pine. Though we really need to start blaming Kroll for all the crazy incidents on the set of the film.
The comedian took a moment to explain the film, however, by saying, “It feels like a utopian community in the late 50s, early 60s…. but things are not as they are. as they look.”
Endorsing his ambiguity about the film, Kroll said, “It’s a thriller and the less you know about the film, the better off you are.”
Despite the poor reviews, the film made over $30 million at the box office this weekend, apparently thanks to Kroll’s marketing talents.
The film stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine and director/producer Olivia Wilde. Kroll clarified that he was the star of the film, though. A claim with which we are now inclined to agree.
