Raymond… Fred Armisen
Bowen: We’re so excited to be doing this remake of “The Parent Trap.” As you know, we found someplace to update the original but the scene in the cabin when Hallie and Annie realized they’re twins is such a classic. We just wanted to leave it as it was.
Jenna: I love that. I totally agree. This is so special. I’m just really glad to be here.
Bowen: Us too. Obviously, since you’re playing both twins, we’ll film you twice, combine the two images into one. Today, you’ll be Hallie in the scenes. And since your body double is out sick, We’re going to have one of our crew guy Raymond read with you, okay?
Raymond: Yeah, hey. You know, you can just call me, right? This is gonna be fun. I think I get the gist.
Bowen: Okay, great. So let’s start with the sequence where Hallie and Annie are having a little disagreement over whether it’s bedtime or not. Okay? You can just head your thoughts and we’ll get started. All right. Okay, great. And Action.[Raymond turns off the light]
Raymond: Turn them off.
Jenna: You are so annoying.
Raymond: And I’m starting to think you’re a real bitch.
Bowen: Okay, cut. Sorry, I don’t think the script said bitch.
Raymond: Yeah, sorry about that. I did a little off the cuff thing. You know, like you do on Curb. You guys watch Curb? I love Curb.
Jenna: Maybe someone else wants to read the lines? Like the ones that are in the script?
Bowen: Don’t worry. We’re never gonna see him in the movie. So it doesn’t really matter what he says.
Raymond: I have an idea. Should I go to the toilet at some point and she gets mad. No, that could be funny. Like her twin is always on the toilet?
Bowen: Are you asking that because you need to go to the bathroom now or-?
Raymond: Well, I think my character might. But you’re the director.
Bowen: Right? Okay, let’s just move on to the next day. Okay, so just as a reminder, it’s stormed outside, so your belongings got wet. And now you’re talking about the window, getting to know each other. Okay. All right. And action.
Jenna: Oh, no.
Raymond: Oh, are any of your pictures ruined?
Jenna: I mean, only the beautiful Shawn Mendes.
Raymond: Wow, he is hot. You know who I like? Lisa Rinna. I would let her wreck me.
Jenna: Okay, I don’t really know what to do here.
Bowen: Okay, let’s just move on to the Oreo scene. You’re wanting. You’re realizing you have a lot in common. Okay, and go.
Jenna: Wanna eat some Oreos? It may sound weird, but I eat them with peanut butter.
Raymond: Well, F* me, so do I.
Jenna: Wow. No way. I wonder what else we have in common?
Raymond: You like Schlitz? Schlitz beer?
Jenna: What? No. Anyway. How old are you?
Raymond: 56. Oh, for this? 11. My birthday is in October.
Jenna: Me too.
Raymond: This is tripping me out. Let’s see if we have a picture of our parents that was ripped in half to see if we’re twins.
Bowen: Nope. Nope. Not there yet. But good enough. Let’s just jump ahead to where Hallie is pacing, putting it all together. You’re both up for this. Okay. Yeah. And action.
Jenna: I mean, think about it. I only have a father and you only have a mother.
Raymond: Oh, yeah.
Jenna: You’ve never seen your dad and I’ve never seen my mom.
Raymond: So you think we’re twins or not yet?
Jenna: You have one old picture of your mom and I have one old picture of my dad.
Raymond: Yeah, like in that Lindsey Lohan movie about the twins.
Jenna: But at least yours is probably a whole picture.
Raymond: A whole picture? You’re 11. Don’t look at those.
Jenna: My pictures just a pathetic little thing right down the middle.
Bowen: Okay, and now you both run to get your halves of the picture.
Jenna: Here it is. A picture of my dad.
Raymond: Okay. I got mine.
Jenna: On the count of three. We’ll show them to each other. Okay?
Both: 1, 2, 3. Wow. Leslie Mann and Ed Helms. Is this for streaming?
Jenna: So if your mom is my mom, and my dad is your dad and we’re both born on October 11, than you and I are like sisters?
Raymond: Jesus, Hallie, we’re freaking twins.
Raymond: Oh my god. Wow. I’m like trying now.
Jenna: This is amazing.
Raymond: So they just split us up? Why would they do that to us? We got to kill them.
Jenna: There’s two of us.
Raymond: We work together, we could kill them. I’m kidding, I love you.
Bowen: And cut. Wow that was it. Thank you both for those performances. I’m blown away. This is going to be a hit and I’ll see you both at the premiere.
