Exclusive: Charlie Day Talks Pacific Rim


Attending the press junket for Warner Bros.’ upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses, ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to talk with one of the film’s stars, Charlie Day.

We’ll have the full interview available but soon, but Day did drop a few details about the current status of his involvement with the upcoming Guillermo del Toro project, Pacific Rim. Day was rumored to have joined the project, but he clarified his status for us and talked a bit about meeting Del Toro.

ComingSoon.net: You just signed on for a tour of the “Pacific Rim”…
Charlie Day:
I’m not officially signed on so I’ve been told to dodge around answering questions, but I’ve definitely been having conversations with them about it. I’d hate to say “I’d like to sign on” because I don’t want them to low-ball me [laughs] but hopefully that’ll all work out.

CS: What was it like meeting the master, Guillermo del Toro?
I was very thrilled to find out he’d seen every single episode of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” That’s why we were meeting. Because “Pan’s Labyrinth” is up there as one of the greatest movies ever made.

CS: He’s such a personality. He’s read every book, he’s seen every movie. If you were to sign on would you have a “Monster Approval” clause in your contract?
[laughs] I will not be given monster approval, but when it comes to Guillermo you let him do all the approving.

CS: Well I hope you can land it because it sounds like an awesome frickin’ project.
I hope so too.

Horrible Bosses hits theaters on July 8th.
