STARRING John Travolta, Robin Williams, Seth Green
WRITTEN BY David Diamond, David Weissman
DIRECTED BY Walt Becker

Don’t let the title fool you: Old Dogs is not a sequel to Wild Hogs, the surprise 2007 hit that also starred John Travolta and was also directed by Walt Becker. No, this film stars Travolta and Robin Williams as business partners whose lives are upended when Williams’ workaholic character learns he’s the father of an ex-girlfriend’s 6-year-old twins. ”John and Robin had never worked together before,” says Seth Green, who plays the duo’s overwhelmed protégé. ”Just getting to watch them play together was the coolest thing.” Cooler than the scene in which Green has to serenade a gorilla? ”Becker was like, ‘Ha, ha, ha, let’s make Seth sing this,”’ says Green, who croons an Air Supply tune to soothe a savage beast. ”They know I’ll do anything.”
