Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison aren’t reality TV stars but they play them in the new comedy “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”
The film follows five couples about to become parents. The twist in Diaz and Morrison’s storyline is that they’re both small screen celebrities: she hosts a “Biggest Loser” style weight loss show and he’s a dance pro on a “Dancing with the Stars” style competition. (Their characters actually meet and get pregnant on the dance show, which would cause a tabloid explosion in real life.)
I sat down with Diaz and Morrison for a brief discussion of reality TV, their own feelings on ever becoming parents and the “erotic” nature of dance.
During the same interview, Morrison also discussed what’s ahead after graduation on “Glee.”
Besides Diaz and Morrison, “Expecting” also stars Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid, Brooklyn Decker, Ben Falcone, Rodrigo Santoro and Chace Crawford and Anna Kendrick.
“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” opens nationwide May 18
