Alia Shawkat and Landon Pigg Exclusive Video Interview WHIP IT

     September 27, 2009


Opening this Friday is Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut “Whip It”. The film’s a coming of age story set against the world of roller derby that stars Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Jimmy Fallon, Landon Pigg, Eve, Marcia Gay Harden, Daniel Stern and Alia Shawkat. So to help promote the film, at the Toronto Film Festival I had the chance to interview most of the cast and after the jump you can see Alia Shawkat and Landon Pigg talk about being at the Festival, working for Drew Barrymore, the sport of Roller Derby, Rock Band/Guitar Hero, and Alia talks about the “Arrested Development” movie and “The Runaways”. Look for more “Whip It” interviews this week:
