Rodney Rothman and Nicholas Stoller make a powerful team on a film set. I've seen them in action together twice, and considering the first time around resulted in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," a film that owes as much of its success to its post-process as to the shoot itself, I think it's a safe bet that "Get Him To The Greek" could well turn out to be one of the summer's best comedies.
On the set of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," it was easy to forget that it was Stoller's first time as a director and that he and Rothman were just developing their working language. Stoller had already created a solid reputation for himself as a screenwriter, and Rothman rose to prominence as the youngest head writer for "Late Night With David Letterman" ever before publishing his first novel. Both of them are still frighteningly young considering their accomplishments, and incredibly easy to speak with.
When I arrived on-set, they were in the middle of a scene involving Sean Combs and Jonah Hill, and I commented about how Russell Brand was the scene-stealing discovery on "Marshall," while he was the star on this set, and now Combs was developing into the new scene-stealer.
Rothman just shook his head, laughing. "You have no idea."
