Paul Mescal Considers Dabbling in Comedy

During a recent press interview for his latest film "All of Us Strangers," Oscar nominee Paul Mescal revealed that he has thought about trying his hand at comedy for his next project. Known for his dramatic roles, Mescal admitted that the comedy genre "scares" him but expressed interest in exploring it further.

Mescal's Inspiration from Acclaimed Teen Comedy

Mescal credited his recent viewing of the acclaimed teen comedy "Bottoms" as the inspiration behind his newfound interest in comedy. The actor was in awe of how the film executed its humor and left the cinema feeling both jealous and impressed by the talents involved. This experience has sparked Mescal's desire to take on a romantic comedy in the future.

Mescal Eyes Collaboration with Ayo Edebiri

Specifically, Mescal expressed a desire to star in a rom-com alongside Ayo Edebiri, one of the leads in "Bottoms." The actor sees it as a challenge he wants to tackle within the next five years. Edebiri's breakout performance in the raunchy comedy has caught Mescal's attention and he believes their on-screen chemistry would make for an exciting project.
