As if we needed another reason to see Piranha 3D, Jerry O’Connell dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to tease his full-frontal scene. “There may be some issues with the piranha and my member, maybe,” he said, before asking us to remember that the scene was filmed on a river in Arizona in which the icy cold Colorado River rushes. O’Connell stars as a soft-core pornography mogul who videotapes girls on Spring Break. (Brilliant, assuming it doesn’t get him sued by Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis.) Piranha 3D co-writer Pete Goldfinger went further explaining the scene to EW’s Clark Collis: “There’s a bit where Jerry O’Connell’s penis, after it is bitten off, is slowly moving towards you. I just wanted to tell you that when you see the movie, that WILL be in 3D. If you thought that a little bit of Jerry O’Connnell’s penis is a good thing, but a lot is a bad thing, you might not like it.” Watch that Kimmel clip below along with the first part of O’Connell’s interview, during which he made me wish I could watch an hour-long special on his parenting skills. He acted out the way his nearly two-year-old twin girls with wife Rebecca Romijn stage sit-ins at crosswalks, openly admitted “my children are rather slow, actually” (they eat pebbles), and explained that as a joke, he picked up one of his screaming children at 4 a.m. like, “You have to stop this,” and sat her outside the front door and closed it. (His wife and mother-in-law were not amused, but we were).
