Exclusive Video Interviews with David Schwimmer, Will i Am and Ben Stiller MADAGASCAR 2

As most of you know, Collider is partners with the Brazilian website Omelete. That’s why when we post video clips and interviews, both logos are embedded in the clips.

Anyway, Erico from Omelete was recently here in Los Angeles for the “Madagascar 2” junket and he interviewed a number of the cast on camera. Since I only did roundtable interviews, I figured you might like to watch some exclusive interviews….

And like I said when I posted my roundtable interview with Chris Rock and Ben Stiller…while some sequels are made just to milk money out of audiences, I thought Madagascar 2 was a huge improvement over the first film. Better story, funnier jokes, and I even enjoyed the characters…which didn’t work for me in the original. So if you were like me and didn’t think the first film was all that…you can visit a theater this weekend and know it’s going to be a much better experience.

And with that….here’s Erico’s interviews with David Schwimmer, Will i Am and Ben Stiller. If you’d like to watch some clips from “Madagascar 2” click here.
