Bill Hader Dreams Up Guaca-mole for ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ Premiere

It was appropriately overcast for the Sept. 21 premiere of “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” at the Regency Theater in Westwood. But filmmakers, stars, guests and families had their sunny sides up as they sauntered along the red carpet to see Columbia and Sony Pictures Animation’s tasty toon.

It was a big weekend for Emmy-nommed Bill Hader, who voices would be hero-inventor Flint Lockwood in the pic, and he didn’t have to think very long when asked what he’d be if Flint’s machine turned him into sentient food. “I would be a Guaca-Mole, which is half guacamole and half mole. It’s something (co-star) Anna Faris came up with and I was like, ‘Why is this not in the movie?’ “

For her part, Faris said she’d want to be a Cornucorn – a unicorn made out of corn. Others were more a little more literal with their choices. “Flint would turn me into a chunky-sized Hershey Bar,” laughed Terry Crews, “because I’m sweet and I’m a big chunk.”

Following the screening, guests walked the few blocks to the Napa Valley Grille for an afterparty. Along for the preem’s culinary ride were Sony’s Amy Pascal, helmers Kris Pearn and Cody Cameron, co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Kristen Schaal, screenwriters John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein and Erica Rivinoja, and guests Marcia Gay Harden, Amy Brenneman, Lou Diamond Phillips, Breckin Meyer and Rob Corddry.

    The bombastic English title might sound like it describes some comic book sci-fi epic, but in “Shyrakshy: Guardian of the Light” our hero does not wear a cape but a weathered cap, and the light he guards is not an interstellar death ray but the flickering beam of a battered old movie projector. Prominent Kazakh [...]
