Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan star in the R-rated comedy, THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, about three best friends who find themselves where we’ve all been– at that confusing “moment” in every dating relationship when you have to decide “So…where is this going?”

Also, Ike Barinholtz talks about 'Neighbors', from AV Club:
AVC: Neighbors used to be called Townies, but now it’s just Neighbors.

IB: Yes. Neighbors. I just spoke to the director, and he said that, apparently, a lot of people don’t know the terms “townies.”

AVC: That’s ridiculous.

IB: Those are the townies that don’t know it! Everyone knows it! But I guess they thought Neighbors makes a little more sense, and it totally works for the story.

AVC: So what’s your role in Neighbors?

IB: Jimmy. Jimmy has one of my favorite last names of anyone I’ve played. It’s Jimmy Blevins, which I don’t know why, but that makes me laugh so hard.

Basically, the movie is Seth [Rogen] and Rose Byrne, and they buy a house in a small town in Madison or Westwood or whatever. Then the worst fraternity on campus gets kicked off campus and moves in right across the street. At first they see them moving in and Seth is like, “Well, maybe they’re a cool, nerdy, Jewish fraternity.” Then you see like Zac Efron shirtless carrying a chair and Rose Byrne is like, “No that guy is definitely not Jewish.” And they have like the craziest parties and a war wages between Seth and this fraternity. I play Seth’s best friend. Jimmy is going through a really bad divorce, and he’s in really bad shape. He’s a really angry, sad man. And, at first, he’s like, “This is amazing! You’re living like a dream, you can go and party whenever you want!” And then some things happen between him and the fraternity kids, like Chris Mintz-Plasse. Some things happen between him and Jimmy that push Jimmy firmly toward “let’s destroy these motherfuckers.”

I just saw it for the first time the other day, and it’s really, really, really funny. Two great guys wrote it—Andrew Cohen and Brendan O’Brien—and Nick Stoller directed. I’ve been a fan of his since Undeclared,so it was so much fun working with those guys. And I’ve been confused for Zac Efron my whole life, so finally to work with him was kind of cool. People always think I’m him, and it was nice to work with him.

AVC: You’re probably at least two feet taller than him.

IB: Thank you, thank you. He’s a little shorter, but you can really get lost in those blue eyes of his. He was constantly shirtless. So Seth and Stoller and I were just constantly like, “We’re not the same species as him!” He’s got a six-pack on top of a six-pack. He has those muscles that point to his penis. It’s crazy. I don’t understand how you have that kind of body. I don’t get it.

“No that guy is definitely not Jewish.”

Not even 25 percent?

Seth Rogen and his comedy are racist.

It annoys me beyond belief that Seth insists on playing a Jew as often as possible. Attractive Jewish hollywood actors, like Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Logan Lerman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (all of whom are 100 percent Jewish), for example, never or rarely play Jews. It has always been that way.

The Zac comment is especially insulting, given his partial Jewish heritage. I would not want to be in a theater where morons are laughing at that joke, which is what they're meant to do.

And Zac could have easily been fully Jewish.

It's also interesting that Neighbors was filmed at about the same time as This is Where I Leave You. That was the movie where Zac would have played a Jewish character. Instead, the role was re-cast with Adam Driver (who is not Jewish).
