Watch: 'Bad Teacher's' Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel pitch '127 Hours'
Plus: Lucy Punch and 'The Office's' Phyllis Smith
Note to anyone looking to sit down and get some serious answers from Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel: it's not going to happen.
The "Bad Teacher" duo, who play romantic interests for the title character played by Cameron Diaz, took some time to discuss their new comedy, but diving into character motivation was the last thing on their agenda. Strangely, Timberlake was the most rowdy of the two giving reenacting a very funny pitch for "127 Hours" he'd heard from Judd Apatow which makes the video interview worth watching alone.
The always busy Segel ("The Muppets," "How I Met Your Mother"), on the other hand, was more than happy to act as "straight" man for the pair. Plus, he knows the talking points better than anyone (or can recite them with a nice wink at least).
And did I mention the poster display behind the duo collapsed in the middle of the interview? A memorable five minutes to say the least.
Another fun sit down was with two of the supporting ladies in "Bad Teacher," Lucy Punch (soon to star in FX's "Powers") and "The Office's" Phyllis Smith (who does her best to steal the movie out from under everyone). You can watch that interview below.

"Bad Teacher" opens nationwide on Friday.
