Mix 'N' Match Q&A with Clark Duke

Posted on

You may recognize Clark Duke for his role as the fundamentalist Christian nerd Dale on ABC Family’s college drama Greek. Or perhaps you’ve seen Duke playing himself opposite real-life buddy Michael Cera in their online mockumentary Clark and Michael. Now, the 23-year-old actor is appearing as unlikely ladies’ man Lance in the teen road-trip romp Sex Drive. But do you know Duke’s deadpan wit well enough to match his actual responses to our questions?

QUESTIONS
1 What did you think when they offered you the role in Sex Drive?
2 How did you learn to be such a lothario?
3 What’s up with Lance’s flashy outfits?
4 What was it like to watch yourself in some of those gross-out humor scenes in Sex Drive?
5 How’d you feel about your sex scene?
6 What advice would Lance in Sex Drive give Dale in Greek?
7 All your scenes in the upcoming A Thousand Words are with Eddie Murphy. So should Michael Cera be nervous? Are you and Eddie Murphy, like, BFFs now?
8 Is Michael Cera really that sweetly disarming?

ANSWERS
A I did run into him at this Prince concert, and I was with a couple of my friends who didn’t even realize I knew him. He gave me one of those handshake-and-hug combos. My friends were just totally flabbergasted.
B He’s pretty adorable. He’s a total sex symbol.
C It was like a documentary, really. I don’t know what you’ve heard, but…. Let’s just say I do pretty well for myself.
D It was kind of hard in general, because there’s something nauseating about seeing yourself 20 feet tall.
E At first I was surprised, like I think everybody else, including my agent, was.
F I think it’s funny, which is really all we were shooting for.
G I like to look snazzy, but that’s very much the character, the bright colors and the Fred-from-Scooby-Doo neckerchiefs.
H Just lighten the f— up, you know?
