It seems obvious now that the breezy and hilarious Maya Rudolph was always meant to be a major comedy star, but of course, she didn’t start out at the top.
As she revealed to Hollywire’s Chelsea Briggs, her new Sundance movie The Way, Way Back is partially set at a water park where Maya used to work!
“I’ve spent a lot of time at this water park. I can tell you where the bathroom is. I can tell you where certain kiosks are for certain snacks,” Maya said of her “research” for the role.
Making her Sundance debut, the Bridesmaids actress also opened up about the talented cast of the movie, which also stars familiar faces such as Steve Carell and Allison Janney. “Working with myself was phenomenal. I loved it!” she joked, before launching into some more genuine compliments of her castmates.
