Rob Corddry: I'd hot-tub time-travel to a junior-high dance

Posted on

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 doesn’t go back in time as the first film did, instead traveling into the not-so-distant future in order to prevent the shooting of Rob Corddry’s character, Lou. But, the idea of time-travel sparked Corddry to contemplate what time he’d most like to head to in a recent interview with Time.

Corddry wouldn’t choose time periods to visit based on text book-historical events, and he would definitely not go as far back as the Old West because he would “get shot.” The actor would much rather get the chance to see some of his favorite legendary artists perform live. 

“You hear Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page say that his guitar prowess was otherworldly,” Corddry said about seeing Jimi Hendrix at any point during his career. “For them to say that, there must have been something insane going on when you’re watching it.”

Head on over to Time to read what Corddry had to say about his desire to see blues musician Robert Johnson in the ’20s and why he’d like to hit up a middle school dance in the early ’80s. 

Check out the trailer of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 before it debuts in theaters Friday, Feb. 20.
