Hey “Vampire Diaries” fans, are you ready to see Elena Gilbert like you’ve never seen her before — happy and hysterically laughing? Then you’re in luck, because Nina Dobrev is only weeks away from the premiere of her first big-screen comedy, “Let’s Be Cops.”
“This is the first comedy that I’ve ever done,” Dobrev explained to MTV News during our behind the scenes visit to the film’s Atlanta set. “I play Josie. She’s sort of the only girl in the film. The boys are carrying it for me.”
We doubt it, but much of the action we saw on set did revolve around the boys — specifically stars Jake Johnson (“New Girl”) and Damon Wayans, Jr. (also “New Girl”), as well as Keegan-Michael Key of “Key & Peele” fame, Andy Garcia, and Rob Riggle, who all had Dobrev in stitches during filming.
“It’s been the most fun for me, personally, because I’m usually on ‘Vampire Diaries’ which is a very serious set,” she said. “A lot of people dying all the time, a lot of blood. This whole experience has just been hilarious. I haven’t stopped laughing. I feel like I’ve gotten laugh lines just from being here.”
“Let’s Be Cops” hits theaters on August 13th.
