He was the unhelpful principal in 21 Jump Street and none other than Jesus Christ himself in A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas, but Jake Johnson can currently be seen on a weekly basis opposite Zooey Deschanel in FOX’s hit, Golden Globe-nominated sitcom New Girl, which was fairly recently picked up for a second season. Fans jonesing for an extra helping of Johnson won’t have to suffer through summer repeats, however, as his new film, Safety Not Guaranteed, debuts this week. In it, Johnson plays Jeff, a sardonic Seattle magazine employee who takes two college interns, Darius and Arnau (Aubrey Plaza and Karan Soni), on a road trip to track down the hermetic author (Mark Duplass) of a classified ad searching for a partner to travel through time with him. Unbeknownst to his employer or younger charges, however, the disillusioned Jeff is actually more interested in tracking down and re-connecting with a long-lost love interest who lives in the beachside community. I recently had a chance to speak to Johnson one-on-one, about the film, its disparate tonalities and time travel in general. The conversation is excerpted over at ShockYa, so click here for the read.
