Actress, comedian, and Garfunkel & Oates band member Riki Lindhome, stopped by the Nerd HQ stage at Comic-Con 2013 to chat with Shira Lazar and Ethan Newberry about shooting her super long and super awkward nude scene for “Hell Baby.”
“It’s a movie from Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, who did Reno 911,” Lindhome says of the film, which stars Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, and Rob Huebel (who we also chatted with!) “It’s just a bunch of funny people. It’s kind of like if ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ was a comedy.”
Lindhome plays the Wiccan sister of Bibb’s character.
“It was really interesting to learn about,” she says of her research into Wiccan culture. “My character’s Wiccan beliefs were sort of diffuse.” In fact, she’s more like a hipster Wiccan who lives on a farm.
There’s also a nude scene that is causing some buzz, and prompted Drew McWeeney of HitFix to write that Lindhome is “naked in ways I did not know you could be naked.”
While Lindhome doesn’t really know what that means, she does admit, “It’s a long scene. I’ll put it that way.” She adds, “It was fun! But it was like, okay, now I’m going to go and drink for the rest of the day. I was very nervous.”
Catch “Hell Baby” on video on demand July 25 and in theaters September 6.
