Vaughn, Wilson Pose as Google Workers in Soon to Be Released Flick

By Jamie Epstein February 14, 2013

For two heavy hitter actors who probably don’t even remember what is like to work in a 9 to five position such as Vince Vaughn and Own Wilson, it should be interesting and hilarity will likely ensure when the twosome do just that. Staring in a new comedy titled, “The Internship” that pokes fun at the still sluggish employment rate in the U.S. that has forced many people midlife to hit the pavement in search of a new job, the actors will be playing the roles of interns who are lucky enough to receive temporary and unpaid employment at technology giant Google.

This isn’t the first time that Vaughn and Wilson have been in a movie together. It’s hard to forget Wedding Crashers, a pee in your pants film that is all about two single guys who show up uninvited at weddings in hopes of bringing a lonely bridesmaid or two home with them after the reception ends. Staring as Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson), they play salesmen who trying to keep up with the times receive the chance to enter the golden gates of Google only to find themselves competing with tech lovers nearly half their age.

To answer what is probably one of your biggest questions, yes there are actually several scenes that were shot in the real headquarters of Google, located in sunny Mountain View, Calif. And Vaughn reveals in a recent article published by The Sun that he was excited to see the Google offices in person especially with the constant rumors that swirl the Web in regards to the technology included within this building. 

He added, "Being from the Midwest, Google always felt like The Wizard of Oz or the Chocolate Factory (in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). It's such a different type of place to work at than what is considered a traditional work environment. With the... access to food, the sports on campus, the massages and all that stuff."

The search giant has been pretty flexible with the project, allowing Director Shawn Levy to work his magic that is needed to create the flick. Levy added, “It's been a really interesting partnership in my production and Google where... it's not like I have to do everything they want in the script, it's very much still a comedy and a narrative, but trying to get the culture of Google right has been a big part of the work we have done."

Nowadays, we truly live in a “Google World” thus it makes complete sense why a movie about the innovative organization would be made. When in search of any sort of information, my first thought as well as many others is to immediately “Google it” and after seeing this movie, we may find ourselves laughing out loud as we submit our question to the site.
