Wait, you mean working on an "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movie wasn't the most fun ever?
Apparently not, at least according to David Cross, who makes his third appearance as record producer Ian in the three-quel, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked." In fact, he says making the new "Alvin" was pretty much a rock-bottom endeavor.
"This last film was literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I’ve ever had in my professional life," Cross said during a recent interview with The Playlist.
Without naming names, he says, "It’s safe to say I won’t be working with some of those people ever again. Not the actors. And the director [Mike Mitchell] was great. We got along. There were a couple of people, though … it was just a really awful, unpleasant experience."
Cross doesn't have to worry about suffering through a fourth "Chipmunks" movie, though, as he's officially fulfilled his contract for three films in the franchise. "I’m contractually done," he says. "I was contractually obligated to do three, which is kinda standard."
Wow! Now we're really curious about what went down on that set. Who were these "unpleasant" people? Cross didn't say it was the actors, so we know that at least Alvin, Simon and Theodore were nice to him. We may never find out ... or maybe all will be revealed in an unofficial behind-the-scenes Easter egg placed by some equally disgruntled technician on the DVD.
"Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked" is currently playing in theaters.
