Sudbury homey Chris Evans had a helluva time filming his new flick “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” thanks to his laugh-a-minute co-stars Jason Schwartzman and Michael Cera .
“You realize how not funny you are,” Evans told the Track. “I’m not gonna try and keep up with those guys. They are hilarious. You think they’re funny in movies, but wait ’til you get on set with them.”
Evans, who also starred in “Push” and “Fantastic Four,” said his co-stars, best known for “Bored To Death” and “Juno” respectively, really let it rip when they were in the gym working out.
“It’s a physical movie, so there’s a lot of action sequences,” he said. “Every day we had to do some physical training like lift weights and run around. Now, you got Michael and Jason in the gym and they’re like the bad kids in class. They won’t stop messing with each other or cracking jokes. They had to be separated.”
