Playing Ken Marino Gets 'Goosebumps' Talking About His New Role

Beware, you’re in for a scare!

Are you as excited as we are for the new Goosebumps movie? ETonline caught up with comedian Ken Marino at the season six premiere of Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital, where he talked to us about his role in the upcoming horror flick.

"I play a coach of the high school and I have a crush on the main character's mom," said Marino of the role. "There's monsters, and creatures, and the dummy who's the bad guy, and Jack Black is great in it."

Black stars in the film as lead character R.L. Stine.

"I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it," joked Marino.

Yes, he said that – and we loved it.

In the film, teenage Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) is upset about moving to a small town, but soon finds the silver lining when he meets the girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). But Zach soon finds that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R.L. Stine (Black), author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.

It is revealed the monsters that made Stine's books so famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by locking them in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.

Goosebumps hits theaters March 2016.
