If Emmys were given for Best Creator of Awkward Moments, Nathan Fielder would be a perennial winner. The Nathan For You star excels in putting his conversation partners in uncomfortable positions and situations. The stars of The Night Before were not exempt.
Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie were interviewed by Fielder, who also appears in the film, in a spot for Comedy Central. Fielder interviews the “three big celebrities — well, two, technically” on topics unrelated to the movie. He does allow them to opt out of answering uncomfortable questions — something all three actors take advantage of. Except for when Mackie wants to know how much less he made than Rogen and Gordon-Levitt. Or when JGL tries to explain Inception more than five years after its release (still impossible).

The Night Before opens Nov. 20 and also stars Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Mindy Kaling, and Miley Cyrus.
