There’s a scene in Piranha 3D that gives new meaning to the term 3D. That would be the one where star Jerry O’Connell—who plays a porn star-turned-videographer—gets his manhood chomped off by the man-eating creatures.
Then parts—let’s say three of them—of Jerry’s, ah, “D” come flying off the screen.
The real question is, How does it feel to have hundreds of moviegoers appearing to be showered in your most intimate of flesh?
“It was actually pretty fun. I’ve seen a little bit of it,” the former child star, who made his name in 1986’s Stand by Me, tells Milling About host Robin Milling.
“I shouldn’t say that. I’ve seen a large chunk of it—and it looks great!” he adds.
Jerry, who appears on Robin’s show with co-star Kelly Brook, chats about of other hazards of the flick as well.
“I think thousands and thousands of gallons of fake blood was used in making this film—more than Kill Bill. Piranha 3D has broken records,” he says.
“It’s like a sticky syrup,” he adds of the faux hemoglobin. “You got to really scrub it off when you’re in the shower.
“The worst part is when you’re driving home and you’re soaked in blood and the police pull you over.
“Guns would be drawn and I’d be going right into the pokey!”
Co-starring Richard Dreyfuss, Jessica Szohr, Steven R. McQueen, Elisabeth Shue, Christopher Lloyd and Ving Rhames, Piranha 3D (a—you guessed it—Jaws spoof) tells the story of a spring-break vacation lake set upon by scores of prehistoric man-eating fish released by a sudden underwater tremor.
