Exclusive: Brittany Snow & Cierra Solis Debut Stunt Woman Comedy 'Marcy' (VIDEO)
Channeling their silly sense of humor, celebrity BFFs Cierra Solis and Brittany Snow decided to collaborate on a new mockumentary Marcy, which follows one woman’s journey to becoming America’s next great stunt woman. Yep, you read that correctly. In the series, Marcy (played by Cierra) tries to succeed in a stunt industry dominated by men. Although she's persistent about achieving her dreams, her success won't come easily.
Now that we've got your attention, Celebuzz is excited to bring you the exclusive sneak peek of Marcy, which will debut on Lockerz on May 17. Watch the clip and let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook. Plus, be sure to check out our interview with Cierra and Brittany who dished about their on set shenanigans and much more.
How did the character of Marcy first develop? Cierra: Well, I was writing a movie, but it fell through. I didn't want to let go of Marcy because she's so funny. We decided the funniest occupation for her to have is being a stunt woman and the rest is history.
Do you do all of her stunts?
C: Yeah, I do. I was a gymnast for 17 years, so I have the ability to throw myself around like a rag doll and not get hurt.
So of the stunts look like they hurt. Were there any you were scared to do?
C: Not really. Probably because there weren't any explosions or anything. I've just learned to tuck and roll and no one gets hurt. (laughs)
Brittany: I don't want to give too much away, but there was one stunt she did where she rolls on this huge doughnut. She looked like a little hamster in a wheel, but she mastered it. The fact that she stayed in character though the whole scene was crazy. I don't know how she does it.
You can Brittany have known each other since high school, and your chemistry in the first episode definitely shows.
C: Yeah. She has fantastic comedic timing, so it was easy to have fun on set. It was great.
B: It's great to see my Cierra transform into her character. She gets so into it that I barely recognize her. It's a testament to how great she is, morphing into this silly character she has created.
Did you ever think you'd star in a project together?
C: Probably not, especially not a project this silly.
B: Actually, I think we always thought we'd eventually work together, but probably not in this capacity.
The over-arching theme is whether or not Marcy can actually survive in the stunt industry. Do you think she'll survive?
C:Anything is possible. She is such a funny, silly character. We can only hope that she can prove everyone wrong and show them women can survive in his male-dominated industry.
When people watch the series, what do you hope they take away from it?
C: Comedy. Each episode is totally different, but I hope people lose themselves for five minutes and just laugh at how silly these episodes are. I want people to feel for Marcy, but I just want to make people laugh.I hope they tune in because these episodes are a real hoot!
