MTV Movie Awards '30 Minutes or Less' screening: Aziz Ansari on movie, Jesse Eisenberg

Posted on

Aziz

MTV’s Sneak Peek Week wrapped up Friday with a screening of director Ruben Fleischer’s 30 Minutes or Less, an action-comedy that sees The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg with a ticking bomb strapped to his body. Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation) co-stars as Eisenberg’s buddy, and Nick Swardson (Grandma’s Boy) appears as one of the two inept kidnappers (along with Danny McBride) who force Eisenberg and Ansari’s characters to rob a bank. Friday’s screening was part of MTV’s week-long prelude to the MTV Movie Awards (airing tonight at 9 p.m. ET). Swardson and Ansari talked to EW about Eisenberg’s nervousness (at least as far as bombs are concerned), and about Jason Sudeikis hosting this year’s Movie Awards. Check out the interview, as well as audience reactions to 30 Minutes or Less, in the video below:
