Resisting the urge to open our conversation with, “Foursomes… I’m something of an expert, and felt the geometry was off — the physics too. Care to comment?,” I chatted by phone recently with 25-year-old Jillian Murray, the star, along with Ashley Parker Angel, Marnette Patterson and John Schneider, of Wild Things: Foursome, a characteristically twisty continuation of the sex-soaked and deceit-fueled series set in Southern Florida.
The movie’s story? When race car-driving hotel magnate Ted Wheetley dies suddenly, his hard-partying son Carson (Angel) submits to a quickie marriage to his girlfriend Rachel (Patterson, who’s apparently already had the film scrubbed from her IMDb profile). A rape accusation follows from the less privileged Brandi Cox (Murray, above), and the double-crossing and back-stabbing slowly starts to unwind, as detective Frank Walker (Schneider) investigates, seemingly unable to remember (or access any public records that would show) the exact same things that have happened recently in the tony little town of Blue Bay. My conversation with Murray is excerpted below:
Q: I don’t know if the working title was Wild Things: Foursome, but —
JM: (interrupts) It was not. I’m not a fan of the title, I’ll just put it out there.
But you know what — it’s just a name in the end. The movie’s not that bad. It makes it sound like some softcore thing, which it’s not. I understand as a title it’s catchy, and I hope it sells because of that. But I would have preferred a different name.
Q: When you’re doing a scene like the one that lends the movie its title, I imagine it’s important to establish a certain level of rapport with the actors, yet you don’t want it to be too choreographed. I imagine it’s not something you want to rehearse a lot.
JM: You’re talking about the shower scene, I assume? I thought I was going to be so shy, but I was the only person that was like, “Woo, let’s start, let’s go!” They put a little sticker around your private parts, and you’re pretty much walking around like a Barbie doll. I’m amazed. I thought I was going to be shy, but it felt so freeing to walk around naked.
Q: I’m reminded of the famous Red Hot Chili Peppers photo, and how Anthony Kiedis talked about how freeing walking around basically naked was…
JM: That’s funny. I think Ashley wore a sock. And especially the fact that most people would not be comfortable in that situation makes you like, “Oh, yeah!”
“Wild Things: Foursome” (June 1st, 2010)
Foursome, the next chapter in the Wild Things series is here and hotter than ever. When hotel magnate Ted Wheetley is killed in a boating accident, hard nose Detective Frank Walker (John Scheider) is assigned to the case. But the so-called accident becomes suspicious when the Detective starts to digs deeper into the family’s history on ly to find disturbing schemes of double crossing, seduction and down right greed. It doesn’t help to know that the son (Ashley Parker Angel) of the hotel tycoon had his own crosses to bare against his dad which may have led to cold blooded murder.
