Jerry O'Connell loves bad guy role

August 19th, 2010

Jerry O'Connell loved playing a jerk in 'Piranha 3-D'.

The 'Obsessed' actor - who stars alongside British beauty Kelly Brook in the comedy horror - admits his character Derrick Jones is a "total jerk" who cinemagoers will want to get eaten.

He said: "It's a lot of fun getting to play just a total jerk. I mean a total jerk.

"Believe me, this is a horror film so people are going to die - so audiences may be quite pleased. It's just too much fun and I'm never going to be able to play someone like that. You just can't play good guys your whole life."

Discussing his own favourite scene from the movie, the 36-year-old star admits his own grizzly demise is among the best.

He told "I have to say I am attacked - I'm not going to say whether I die or not - but I am attacked by the prehistoric piranha. They attack a private organ of mine. In 3-D."

'Piranha 3-D' - which also stars Richard Dreyfuss and Eli Roth - hits big screens internationally throughout August and September.
