SXSW 2012: “If You Could Go Anywhere In Time, Where Would You Go?”

Originally, I had only asked this question to the cast of “Safety Not Guaranteed” because the movie is (sorta) about time travel, but then Scott made me ask it to everyone I spoke to. (Also, I had to record my interviews on my phone, which was also my camera, so that is why most of the people are not actually looking in my direction.)

1. Aubrey Plaza, actress (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

“Maybe to the 1940s, wearing polyester women’s suits and smoking lots of cigarettes. That sounds cool.”

2. Mark Duplass, actor (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

“I would probably go to the late ’60s/early ’70s. I like that vibe. I would want to work with Roger Corman and come up under him and make weird movies.”

3. Jake Johnson, actor (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

“I’d probably go back to Chicago in the early ’60s and see my mother and all her brothers and sisters growing up. I think that would always be fun. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger.”

4. Colin Trevorrow, director (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

“Probably back to my own childhood. I think everybody would love to go back to the place where they were the happiest.”

5. Karan Soni, actor (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

“I would go back to when there were dinosaurs, and I would high-five them.”

6. Lena Dunham, creator of HBO’s “Girls”

“I’m pretty intrigued by medieval times, but I wouldn’t want to be a peasant. I’d want to be a princess—a medieval princess with a lot of choices. That seems interesting to me. That’s actually a period of time I’d love to make a movie about although my work doesn’t necessarily scream medieval period piece.”

7. Judd Apatow, executive producer (“Girls”)

“I don’t know. I’d probably just go to an early Led Zeppelin concert or two. Maybe England in the late ’60s.”

8. Richard Linklater, director (“Bernie”)

“The future. The future.”

9. Jack Black, actor (“Bernie”)

“I’d probably party in the ’60s. 1960s, that is.”

10. Claire L. Evans of Yacht

“Los Angeles in 1975”

11. Vermin Supreme, presidential candidate

“I’m the only candidate who will go back in time and kill baby Hitler before he’s even born with my bare hands.”
