Jeremy Piven: I’ll Be Stalking the Audience at My New Flick

If you’re planning to catch The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard this month, be afraid. Be very afraid.

Not because the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay production is a horror flick. To the contray, it’s an outrageous comedy about a used-car liquidator named Don Ready who’s hired by a failing auto dealership to turn their Independence Day sale into a profitable venture.

CAPTION: "With this movie, there's nothing better than watching the reaction from people," Jeremy (above) tell us of "The Goods."

But its leading man seems to have taken his high-pressure, hard-sell character to heart.

Interviewed tonight at 10 p.m. ET on Movie Geeks United!Jeremy Piven says he’ll be taking his promotion for the flick – which opens Friday and co-stars James Brolin and Ving Rhames – directly to the people.

Forget the Red Bull. It’s Will Ferrell who gets Debby Ryan pumped enough to lay down peppy tracks.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, the Disney Channel star, who plays Bailey Pickett on The Suite Life on Deck, reveals her secret for a successful recording session.

A lot of times I kind of sound like I’m takin’ a nap while I’m singing, because I’ve got a deep voice,” the budding pop diva tells host Zachary Sang.

“I do raspy blues stuff, which is great. But when the tempo’s, like, one million, then you gotta do a few jumping jacks.

“Actually, this is kind of really a dorky secret, but I’m gonna fill you in,” Debby, 16, continues.

“When I’m in the studio, and I need to get my energy up, I do a cheer.

“It was a skit that I did at mascot camp. If you’ve ever seen Saturday Night Live, it’s a Will Ferrell skit – the Chess Club Cheerleaders.

“So, I have it memorized, and I go in the studio and I do it. And it picks my energy right up.

“And, literally, a couple of takes later, the producer has actually turned to me and said:

‘Hey, do your Spartan Cheerleader thing one more time, do a couple of jumping jacks. And then go and try it again.'”
