Lazarbeam on Free Guy, VR, and Being a Tom Brady Superfan

With director Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds' Free Guy now playing in theaters, I recently spoke to Lazarbeam about playing himself in the action comedy. If you’re not familiar with Lazarbeam, he’s a hugely successful YouTuber with almost twenty million subscribers. During the interview, he talked about what people would be surprised to learn about being a professional streamer, if he thought getting offered a role in the movie was part of an episode of Punk'd, why he’s excited for the future of VR, and being a Tom Brady superfan.

As most of you know, Free Guy stars Reynolds as a bank teller named Guy who exists inside an open-world video game as an NPC (non-player character). In the gaming world, especially shooting games, NPCs are often cannon fodder and target practice. When a mysterious character named Molotovgirl (Jodie Comer) catches his eye, his simple existence is upended as he starts to pursue the woman of his dreams. Eventually, he’ll be forced to become the hero of his own story in order to save his world and the people in it. Free Guy also stars Taika Waititi, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Channing Tatum, and Utkarsh Ambudkar. For more on Free Guy, you can read Matt Goldberg’s glowing review.
