Irving sat down with HitFix last week to talk about his neverending quest for tail, Billy's current status (let's just say he's under supervision), his affection for Helen Mirren and whether or not he has a ticket to the Oscars. It's an incredibly unconventional interview, but if you're a fan of "Bad Grandpa" you'll probably eat it up.
OK, back to reality everyone...
Obviously, this is really Johnny Knoxville in character as Irving, but the "Jackass" star spent hours to transform into the geriatric horndog to demonstrate just how impressive Stephen Prouty's nominated work is. It was a wonderful gesture by Knoxville and a rare second look at movie makeup in person (he also probably wouldn't mind his production company earning an Oscar).
Prouty himself was on hand and also sat down to talk in detail about the makeup process on "Bad Grandpa." As you can guess, the toughest part of the job was making sure the makeup looked realistic in sunlight. If not, it would ruin the undercover camera work that was a key element of the film's production.
You can enjoy the interview with Irving embedded at the top of this post, and you can find out more about Prouty's work in the interview embedded below.
