In the upcoming comedy Let's Be Cops, New Girl stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans, Jr. play Ryan and Justin, two best friends who go as cops to a costume party and discover that they love the respect they get when pretending to be police.
In an effort to keep up their personas as heroes, they continue to pretend to be cops until they get mixed up in a tangled web of corruption and crime.
The film is shaping up to be one of the big blockbuster R-rated comedies of the year, and the film's stars – Johnson, Wayans, Jr., and The Hangover's Rob Riggle – sat down with ET's Rocsi Diaz to talk about the movie, and what they would have done with their lives if they hadn't become actors.
"I wanted to be an animator," revealed Damon. "I wanted to be a cartoonist. But then I found out how much they made and I was like, 'F**k that!'"
"I was always interested in being a cop, but I spent a lot of years as a sex machine," joked Jake Johnson.
"What do you mean?" asked co-star Rob Riggle. "They don't have machines like that."
"It's a human machine," said Johnson, defensively. "It's, like, a sex machine."
"Like dancing?" Riggle asked, looking for any clarification at all. "You mean like a dancing machine?"
"I don't want to get into the details too much," Johnson responded. "But I would do sexual dancing and ladies would throw a lot of money at me."
It was a shocking revelation that was, of course, a total joke. But the chemistry between the three actors was immediately apparent even in the brief interview.
