What was it like to shoot your first feature film, Two Little Boys?
It was amazing. Again, I felt like I’d won a competition to pretend to be in a film. It was with Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords, and he is an awesome guy, and hilarious — pretty much as you would expect and hope him to be if you’re a fan of the Conchords, which I was. We were stuck at the bottom of New Zealand for a long time in a very small town, but having Bret there was great, and my beautiful lady Zoë came across and kept soup on the stove for me, so that was awesome. It’s quite a dark film, quite a grim black comedy, but in terms of the experience of shooting a film, it was amazing fun.

If you win a Logie do you think it will compare to Bret’s Oscar? [Bret won an Oscar for best original song for "Man or Muppet."]
Yes. I will offer to him that he can keep the Logie at his house in the extremely small chance I win. He can keep it at his house and we’ll see if they can breed to make a Loscar! I don’t know if there’s too many shots of a Logie and an Oscar kissing, so I would like to get that.

If you read that whole interview I think, the "again" and "competition" are actually in relation to him being nominated for the Gold Logie and that obviously being a competition and something that he doesn't deem himself worthy of.

Makes sense. :)

That interview was delightful. Thanks, for posting it. Heehee! Here we were talking merely of hopes of the two golden awards meeting...Hamish has them all out 'collaborating'. :roll2: "Loscar" (Logie must be a girl?) :lol:

Yes, it was so great to see how excited Andy was for Hamish. :D It was a celebratory night all round since Hamish & Andy's Gap Year TV show won Most Popular Light Entertainment Program too.

Here's Hamish's acceptance speech (announced from 3:00). Loved it :)

How charming! Boy, they would never allow him to be up there that long in the US, but it was great to hear him go on and on! :rolls:

He was allowed to and sort of expected to go on for that long 'cause the Gold is the biggest award of the night. So proud! :heartbeat:

A few NZ cinemas like Pukekohe Cinemas and Rialto Tauranga are stating that Two Little Boys is going to be released on September 20th (but we know that could change!). 8) Can't wait to hear more about the premiere.

Thanks to emira who spotted a TLB poster in this video

Oh wow. I really dislike that poster. I like the bloody backpack but that's it...

But who cares? I just wish I could see it! :)

It's been officially announced on the TLB Facebook page that the release date is going to be September 20th. :)

And there's a new poster! I prefer this one. ;)

Wow, I guess a poster can really tinge the way you walk into a movie, can't it?
I don't think I'd go if I saw the first poster - "Nothing to lose, exept a dead backpacker" ?

The second one has a lot going for it - I can't believe the first thing I saw was the graffiti between Bret's and Hamish's names. :oops: But that represents the book better. Wonder how much of the book made it into the movie. :puzzled:
Oh, fish-like Lady

According to a couple of sites including Filmink.com.au & MMGN, the current Australian release date for Two Little Boys is Thursday 29th November 2012. Could change but I think so far they've said that TLB will be released later in the year so it should be around this date. Let's hope it doesn't take too long to be released in other countries as well! :)
