Insidious 2's Patrick Wilson and Lin Shaye on Sex, Sequels, and Scaring You Senseless
So Joshua from Girls and Magda from There's Something About Mary all walk into the Soho House.
No, that really happened. Sure, Patrick Wilson and Lin Shaye are known for more than that, but they found a snuggly place in your heart for those two roles alone. And now, you too can see them together in Insidious 2.
The horror-thriller is the highly anticipated sequel to the acclaimed 2010 film Insidious, and it hits theaters today. Josh and Renai Lambert (Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne) pick up where its creepy predecessor left off. While we don't want to give too much away, we will say this: Loved the first one? You'll love part two. Why? Because it's going to keep you up at night. Really, what more do you want from your scary movies?
So to get into the Friday the 13th spirit, we sat down with Wilson and Shane to talk sex, sequels, and their joy in scaring you senseless.
Miami New Times: So, how are you enjoying Soho House?
Patrick Wilson: Very good. Can you say something bad about this place?
Lin Shaye: I tried to hate it. I mean, I woke up this morning and thought to myself, "I hate it here." (Laughs) Honestly, I couldn't love this hotel more. Who doesn't like Miami Beach?
Well, it's not for everyone.
Wilson: I grew up in St. Pete. I have been here a handful of times. I like it.
Shaye: Not to age myself, but I used to visit here when I was little. We would take the train from Detroit, Michigan. Yes, I said the train. It took three days. It was always awesome, though.
Lin, you filmed There's Something About Mary Here, right?
Shaye: I did. I was here for another, but I can't remember it. It probably wasn't worth remembering. People compare Miami to Vegas. I much prefer Miami. Such a great party town.
I feel like I am here with two legends. Patrick, do you mind if I bring up the Girls episode?
Wilson: I knew that was coming.
You saw a twenty-something headed your way and just assumed?
Wilson: (Laughs) No, I have had grandmothers bring it up to me. I got quite a few text messages after that aired. The power of social media, my wife stepping and then Lena, it kind of blew it up. I mean, they literally wrote a Huffington Post article on that episode. It caused a lot of controversy.
Shaye: I never saw it. What happened?
Wilson: The scope of the show, it's me and her. I come in because because she is putting the trash from her job into my bins. She comes over to apologize. The rest of the episode is this love affair in my brownstone. Its two mismatched, clingy people. Really, it didn't fit into the season at all. People thought, "Is this a dream?" It was this little French film in the middle of the season.
