Jason Sudeikis loved 'fantasy camp' of Horrible Bosses

July 13th, 2011

Jason Sudeikis says working on 'Horrible Bosses' was like "actors' fantasy camp".

The actor was thrilled that he got to work closely with both Colin Farrell and Donald Sutherland in the comedy - which follows three friends who plot to kill their managers - because he is such a fan of both stars.

He said: "Colin was great, he really got into it, they really changed his look. It was really, really fun with both of them, I didn't find out until the day before we started shooting that Donald Sutherland would be playing the other part, he's so great, I grew up adoring him on film, he's made so many wonderful movies. To see them play against each other as father and idiot son, then me being caught in the middle, that felt like actors fantasy camp on my side of things."

Colin's character replaces Donald's as Jason's boss and the 35-year-old star had to disassociate his co-star from the boss he plays in order to make his own performance more believable.

He explained: "Colin committed to it 100 per cent, he was completely different to anything I've ever seen him do. I dealt with him as that guy and not Colin Farrell which made it a little bit easier to not get blown out of the water."
