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.

And they definitely did. The film follows a married couple (Rogen and Byrne) who are forced to live next door to a frat house after having a newborn. 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.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
