Exclusive: Is “Neighbors” star Jerrod Carmichael the next Jamie Foxx?



If you don’t know the name Jerrod Carmicheal you will soon. The 26 year old comedian is making major moves in 2014 with an upcoming HBO stand–up comedy special directed by Spike Lee, a pilot on NBC and a co-starring role in the comedy Neighbors starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

HipHollywood sat down with the stand-up comedian who told us he had lots of freedom to do his thing in the Seth Rogen penned comedy.

“While shooting they gave us the freedom to say what was right for the scene, the writers would yell out these alt lines, so it was a good blend of solid script and just have fun with this,” said Carmicheal.

Efron, who plays the obnoxious frat leader told us about being shirtless for most of the movie, while his co-star Dave Franco gushed about the opportunity to show his butt on the big screen.
