In The Way, Way Back, a coming-of-age tale about insecure teens and their sometimes-flawed adult influences, Steve Carell and Allison Janney play a few of most ill-equipped authority ever to befall a group of children. Janney’s character Betty teases her own son for having a lazy eye while Carell’s Trent does all he can to undermine his girlfriend’s son. Thankfully, Carell and Janney are nothing like their characters.
The two actors graciously agreed to be subjected to EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test, and they proved to be as charming and witty as you might expect. Check out the video after the jump to hear Janney rant about Game of Thrones (with some season 3 spoilers!), and Carell reminisce about the hockey moment that made him cry.
The Way, Way Back premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and opens in theaters on July 5.
