Crystal the Monkey's Trainer Tom Gunderson The Hangover Part 2 Interview Video
The Wolf Pack's back for the sequel to the 2009 comedy hit The Hangover, The Hangover Part 2, but it's a monkey who steals the show. Crystal the monkey was the star of the world premiere of Warner Bros Pictures' R-rated comedy, upstaging her human co-stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha while posing for photographers and spending time with her trainer, Tom Gunderson, on the 'black' carpet. Wearing a gorgeous pink dress and a string of pearls, Crystal was easily the most popular celebrity at the star-studded event.
With Crystal perched comfortably on his shoulder (she held my finger right before the interview which is now one of my new favorite memories from covering 10+ years of premieres), Gunderson talked about training her for the role, her favorite treats, what she's like off the set, and whether or not she actually enjoys wearing dresses:
The Hangover Part 2 stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, and Mason Lee, and is set to hit theaters on May 26, 2011.
The Hangover Part 2 Plot:
In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy The Hangover, Phil (Cooper), Stu (Helms), Alan (Galifianakis) and Doug (Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
