Maya Rudolph and Sam Rockwell take the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

Posted on


Summertime for a kid can be brutal. It’s a dirty secret, but, when your mom is too aloof to notice that her awful boyfriend is treating you poorly, there is little reprieve. Such is the fate of Duncan, the endlessly sweet but super awkward teen hero of The Way, Way Backtill he discovers Water Wizz. Maya Rudolph and Sam Rockwell play Caitlyn and Owen, employees of the modest water park that turns into not only a summer job for Duncan, but an oasis.

Though the two actors were together quite a bit during the filming of The Way, Way Back, the EW Pop Culture Personality Test has a way of bringing out information that usually doesn’t come up on set. Take a look at the video after the jump to hear Rockwell’s reaction to Rudolph’s admission that she wrote some TV fan fiction as a kid.

The Way, Way Back opens wide on July 5.
