Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and Google Work ‘The Internship’ Premiere

It appeared Google was the cause for one epic reunion at the May 29 premiere of “The Internship,” with fans cheering as the company’s street-view camera vehicle drove by and the term “googlers” was debated.

“You laugh, but I swear it’s a real thing,” thesp Josh Gad assured the crowd at the Regency Village Westwood.

The Fox pic, which stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, follows the pair through an extremely coveted internship at the popular search-engine headquarters. This is the first time the comedy team has performed together onscreen since 2005’s “The Wedding Crashers.”

“I’ve always been a big fan of Owen,” Vaughn said. “He’s not the sort of comedian who is desperate for a laugh. We kind of share a sense of humor and I think he brings a real component of vulnerable to this role.”

“It was nice to be back together working on something, and trying to come up with funny stuff, which can be hard for us,” Wilson quipped.

Accorded to Shawn Levy, it was easy getting Google to sign on to the project.

“They really liked the idea, this notion of Vince and Owen as interns, very age-inappropriate interns at their company. It was funny,” the helmer said. “We made clear we’d get to have autonomy over the story and they were like, ‘Just make it funny, make it warm-hearted.’ They were remarkably willing to poke fun at themselves from the get-go.”
