Dylan O’Brien Talks THE FIRST TIME, TEEN WOLF Season 3, Shawn Levy’s THE INTERNSHIP, and More

by Christina Radish

The First Time is a modern and realistic look at the angst and excitement of young love. Dave (Dylan O’Brien) is a high school senior who meets Aubrey (Britt Robertson), a junior, one night at a party and a casual conversation sparks a connection that keeps drawing them back to each other. From writer/director Jonathan Kasdan, the film also stars Victoria Justice, Craig Robertson, Joshua Malina and Christine Taylor. For more on the film, here’s the trailer.

At the film’s press day, actor Dylan O’Brien spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what drew him to this story and role, how relieved he was with the positive response as the film started to screen at film festivals, really staying in the moment as an actor, and how memorable the entire experience was. He also talked about what it was like to make The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, and how director Shawn Levy is going for a more PG-13 family feel, that they’ll return to shoot Season 3 of his MTV series Teen Wolf in December, with 24 episodes now, how he has no idea what’s to come for Stiles, and that he has no idea what Stiles’ first name is. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Collider: How did you come to be a part of this film? Was it just an audition, or was it something you specifically pursued?

DYLAN O’BRIEN: It was an audition for me, like any other thing. The only thing that separated this film was that it was something that me, my manager and my agents all just really loved and really thought that I was right for it. For me, the script and subject matter was so personal to me. This was all still very fresh in my mind, too. I was 19 years old and this had all just happened to me, two years prior. So, it was really refreshing, in that sense, and in the sense that it’s entirely different than any other script I was reading or going out for. It’s a teen comedy, but none of it was raunchy or tasteless. It was really classy and really sweet, and a really true, honest, endearing story. Jon [Kasdan] changed a lot with the script and was writing the whole way, but he has such an understanding of relationships and how people communicate with each other. It’s fascinating because I don’t [have that]. It’s really incredible when somebody has such a beat on it.

Doing an independent film is always a bit of an iffy proposition because you never know how it will turn out or if it will ever get distribution. Did you breathe a sigh of relief when you finally screened the film and audiences really responded positively?

O’BRIEN: It’s weird because I knew that this could be good and I knew that I wasn’t just doing this for no reason. I was trying to make it good. I want everything that I’m doing and putting my life into to be good. We all felt that way. But, what was amazing was that it never became about that. That’s what helped it come out okay. We always had a quiet confidence that it would be good, and just a genuine love for doing it. I could have shot the movie forever, or three months. We didn’t have that budget, so it was five weeks. But, we genuinely loved coming in every day and doing the scene and talking about the scene and talking about the movie. It was something that became really personal to all of us. Even the whole crew was great. It was a really nice shoot. We had a really amazing time. Me, Britt [Robertson] and Jon [Kasdan] were really close, the whole way. The movie had a sense of comradery about it. Everybody wanted it to be good, and everybody thought it was so cute while we were doing it.

The friendship between Dave and his friends was so great. Was that part of the appeal of this?

O’BRIEN: Yeah, that’s such a great part of the movie. [Craig Robertson and Lamarcus Tinker] are so good, and it’s such a good buddy friendship. It’s such a good threesome of friends. It’s exactly what it should be. It’s so real and so how friends would be. They’re three people who are kind of opposite to who each other are, but have this grounded love for one another. It’s who they turn to. I think Aubrey’s parents (played by Joshua Malina and Christine Taylor) are like that, too. It’s a different kind of relatable part to the story. They’re reactions to her antics in the scenes are such classic parenting. It feels like what parenting would be like. So much of the movie is what things are like. It makes you laugh because it’s like that, and it’s funny to portray it the way it is.

It seems like this performance really depended on both you and Britt Robertson being in the moment. Is that something that’s easy for you, as an actor, or do you catch yourself acting and have to adjust for that?

O’BRIEN: Yeah, it depends. That’s such a good question because that’s such a relevant thing, as an actor – committing and not being distracted by any kind of technical awareness, or whatever. You do have to block things out sometimes, and sometimes it’s easier than others. For instance, when we were shooting the sex scene for 12 hours, that was actually the easiest thing to do in the world. You’re never thinking about where the camera is, and you’re never thinking about anything else. You’re so directly and physically involved in the scene that you’re very much in it. It’s easier, in that sense. Something like the alleyway scene, where it’s like a mini one-act play and you run the whole 18 pages of it, it’s so much easier to get lost in it. That’s why actors love doing theater so much, I guarantee you. It’s refreshing to be able to do something where you don’t have to be stopped every two seconds, and you can just play it out and it’s done. I’m very technically aware. I always know what it’s looking like and what the camera move is. It’s hard for me to block that out and become actor-y and be in the moment. I think it helped that I connected to the material so much and that I connected with Britt so much and that I loved the movie so much. I just felt so comfortable in it.

What was it like to do The Internship? Was that an entirely different experience?

O’BRIEN: Oh, it was completely, leaps-and-bounds different. We all had so much fun. It was this big ensemble cast and we all just fell in love with each other, which was a really lucky thing. I’ve never been on such an inspiring set, in the sense of just being blown away by everybody’s performance in the movie. Vince [Vaughn] and Owen [Wilson] are amazing, obviously. We all joked about how much fun we had on that movie, and that it didn’t even feel like we were working, really. It was like a summer camp, especially because it was such a big production and there were so many big production weeks. The First A.D. would be on a mic and you’d just hear your name from the heavens going, “Dylan O’Brien, time for coverage,” and you’d get up and run. But, it was a very supportive group. It was an amazing thing that I’ve never seen before, on anything else. Literally, the whole cast would tuck behind the monitors to watch someone’s coverage, and love it. Everybody genuinely just enjoyed each other’s performances and what everybody was doing. It was really an amazing thing. It has to be funny. There’s no way [it’s not]. The people in that movie blew my mind.

Would you say that the film is leaning toward an R rating?

O’BRIEN: No. I think the really smart thing that Shawn Levy did with it – and I could be wrong when it comes out R and is the raunchiest thing in the world – is that he has such good taste and he’s very classy in his taste and he’s very family-oriented, and he really did the right thing and leaned toward the PG-13 family feel. Box office is not what I’m referring to with this, but just as a movie, I think it’s the right call. I think you can take the most away from the movie with the lighter version. We don’t need the fucks and the shits and the cocks. It’s about the group coming together. It’s a total family feel, so it has to have [a rating that reflects that]. I think it will be good, and I think it will be sweet, too.

Who is the character you’re playing?

O’BRIEN: I’m a very cynical dick, at first, who eventually comes around to love the group. I’m very kept in about my feelings and who I am, and not open, in any way.

Have you talked to Jeff Davis at all about Stiles’ storyline for Season 3 of Teen Wolf?

O’BRIEN: I literally just texted him last night, telling him that we needed to get dinner and I needed to hear about my character for the season ‘cause I don’t know what’s happening.

When do you start shooting?

O’BRIEN: We start shooting in December. And what I do know is that there’s going to be a four month gap that goes by, between seasons. We also have 24 episodes this season, so we’ll see how that goes. It’s quite a lot. I don’t know how that will go. I think 12 episodes was enough for us to handle on the budget that we have. It will be interesting. We’ve gotta squeeze it into one calendar year, too.

Have you thought about where you’d like to see your character go? Are you rooting for Stiles to remain the non-supernatural character throughout the series, or would you like to see him get more involved?

O’BRIEN: I don’t know. I don’t think about that stuff. I feel like it’s not my place to decide where my character goes. I definitely weigh in, heavily, with stuff. But, I’m as entertained as everyone else is, by finding out what my arc for the season is going to be and what I’m going to get to play. If it’s presented to me and I think it’s barbarically wrong and not, at all, anything that Stiles would be doing, I’ll say something about it. But, I really admire what Jeff does for everyone’s characters, and not just mine. He puts it out there for you and gives you the opportunity to play a great arc, over the course of a season. I just let him do his thing. You don’t disrupt genius at work. I think we just have a good balance, with the way he writes it and the way I play it, and the way I understand it and the way he perceives it. It is very collaborative. We do talk about it a lot. We’ll talk a bunch at this dinner, about everything – about what’s gone on in these four months, about where Stiles is what, about what’s going to be happening for him and what’s going to be changing. With the supernatural stuff, I personally think it would be silly if Stiles was turned into anything. But, if we’re in Season 5, sure, we’ve gotta do something. At that point, maybe it could even be funny. I was joking with somebody recently about how funny it would be if Stiles finally did get a superpower, but he was really cynical about it because he was Frog Man, or something. He did have a superpower because he could leap and jump really high, long and far, but it was essentially useless and embarrassing. I thought that would be funny. But, I don’t think something like that will happen.

Will there continue to be a bit of a bromance triangle, between Stiles, Scott (Tyler Posey) and Isaac (Daniel Sharman)? Where will Scott’s friendship with Isaac leave Stiles?

O’BRIEN: That will definitely be something that’s tested this year, absolutely, with the nature of Scott and Stiles and how strong their bond is. They’re both growing up and having to go different routes, and that may or may not disrupt their friendship. It will be a test.

Do you know what Stiles’ first name is?

O’BRIEN: Oh, no, I don’t. There’s no first name. There just isn’t one. That’s just the joke. I don’t have one. I think the original Stiles was Rupert Stilinski, or something like that. There was one episode where they showed half of the name on a paper. I don’t remember what it said. The fans get really angry when you tease them with that stuff. I see it as being a comedic story point. I thought it was funny because you couldn’t see it, but people were outraged. Jeff is so funny because he spends a lot of time on Twitter. He gets so into it that he reads everything. People threatened him about Sterek, being like, “I swear to god, if you don’t let them be together, I will come to your house and kill you.” Jeff actually plays into this stuff. He sent me and Tyler Hoechlin an email that said, “You guys, I know that this is insane, but remain calm and don’t acknowledge any of it, no matter what you do.” But, we don’t go on Twitter, so we don’t read any of this and didn’t know what was going on, at all. It cracked me up. But, I can’t wrap my brain around that. Do they really want us together, on the show?!

For fucking real? Ugh I hate typos like this. They didn't even try.

Okay, back to finish the article, so far he's super adorable and sweet.

Okay, more things:

I would pay a lot of money to hear Dylan say cocks out loud
He seems really sweet and serious about acting
I don't want us to ever find out Stiles' first name, or if we do it should be the very last word of the very last episode
lol @ the Sterek stuff

right? Do they type this shit in wordpad or something?
gee 18th-Oct-2012 12:40 pm (UTC)
So are fans calling Dylan a homophobe for what he says about Sterek like they did with Posey? Lol.

He has nice eyebrows.
sparkysparky 18th-Oct-2012 12:46 pm (UTC)
probably, because people are stupid. He mostly just seems genuinely confused over why Sterek is a thing, and lbr, who can blame him with the amount of screentime they've had together. I love me some Sterek, but I'm happy to admit it's 90% fanmade.
fairchilds 18th-Oct-2012 12:55 pm (UTC)
it IS mostly fanmade seriously. i get that the appeal is the antagonism the two have for each other, but this Darcy/Lizzie thing just doesn't translate to EVERY dynamic.

Scott/Isaac, that I see.
ohmiya_sg 18th-Oct-2012 04:27 pm (UTC)
Ugh, I can't with that reaction. I hope Posey was able to shrug it off.
sweetwaterpink 18th-Oct-2012 08:22 pm (UTC)
What was said about Posey? I must have missed a post because I don't have my laptop.

Jeff Davis is an asshole.
sparkysparky 18th-Oct-2012 03:10 pm (UTC)
good advice imo
ohmiya_sg 18th-Oct-2012 03:54 pm (UTC)
tsarinakate1 18th-Oct-2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
I agree.

Especially after reading the long meta tumblr post from someone I follow who is a die hard Sterek fan. Just don't engage them.
setsuna16 18th-Oct-2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
Y'know, I was just thinking... maybe Colton's decision to bolt was a reaction to him not knowing if he was going to be back in season 3, since from what I've read even the cast didn't know what ending was going to air until it actually aired. Maybe he was just covering his own ass, and then it just snowballed.

But, as long as this flawless, tag deserving, creature remains on my screen, everything else is unimportant.

And no, some of us DON'T want Sterek to be real. At this point it would seem more forced than organic, and Jeff already spends too much time feeding the trolls in my opinion.
sparkysparky 18th-Oct-2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
Honestly I just want bisexual Stiles, and I don't even care who he ends up with. I just want some bi representation on tv.

And who do we need to campaign to to get Dylan his own tag? He deserves one tbh.
hoechlingurl 18th-Oct-2012 01:12 pm (UTC)
I agree. We also need one got Tyler Sexlin
setsuna16 18th-Oct-2012 01:16 pm (UTC)
I just want Stiles to remain funny. That's all I care about.

I honestly watch the show because the antics of Stiles amuse the ever loving hell out of me. Yes, I want him to be with someone in the end because someone like that deserves to be happy and as long as it feels legit I wouldn't be horribly opposed to him ending up with a guy, same thing if he ended up with a girl, hell, he could be in some weird pansexual thing and I wouldn't care if it felt legit.

I don't know. But I do know if that damned Honey Boo Boo gets one first, I'ma be mad.
pearllane 18th-Oct-2012 10:44 pm (UTC)
I think you might be me. Cause while I am definitely here for Sterek (as long as it is properly built up for like seasons and not rushed and thrown together to appease fangirls) but I just really want Stiles to be bisexual. I feel like it would be a really awesome thing to have Stiles be a bi representative on TV since it's pretty lacking.
la_sikka 18th-Oct-2012 01:46 pm (UTC)
i agree with the last part of your comment.
violet_crumble9 18th-Oct-2012 01:06 pm (UTC)
Stiles could get the milk superpower like that creeper in misfits. then he could f shit up.

i hope it doesnt suck or get too convoluted because the amount of episodes.
hoechlingurl 18th-Oct-2012 01:09 pm (UTC)
High on early morning coffee so am I right in saying Sterek is definitely never going to happen? I mean I never thought t would but this sounds like the death knell if the actor doesn't get it

viva_espanyol 18th-Oct-2012 01:46 pm (UTC)
I agree tbh. I love Sterek but I'm 99% sure it won't happen :(
tsarinakate1 18th-Oct-2012 06:29 pm (UTC)
I like Sterek in the realm of good fanfiction, but I kinda really hope it doesn't happen.

Plus if it doesn't happen the absolute shit fit the entire internet will pull will be spoken about for years.

Cute as a button, but hell no I'm not sitting through another "teen angst young love" movie. The genre's practically paint-by-numbers these days.

you'll be missing this generation's "Can't Hardly Wait" imo

dianakingston 18th-Oct-2012 01:40 pm (UTC)
I can live with that. :) Hollywood's entirely too enamored with revisiting old concepts - if they're going to do another "Can't Hardly Wait", I'd need something more innovative than fresh faces to pique my interest.
dreamofcoffee 18th-Oct-2012 01:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the trailer looks like a shitty rehash of the great Can't Hardly Wait.

Grabbing my morning coffee and shifting over to watch the Tumblr melt down over their mass delusion - Sterek.
dreamofcoffee 18th-Oct-2012 01:21 pm (UTC)
I can see Dylan having a great career after Teen Wolf. Idk, he just has IT. He's such a talent comedy wise but he's also showcased some decent range with the emotional/drama centered scenes on TW. I can see him branching off and doing some little independent film that will gain him rave reviews/take his career a step further.

The rest of them are destined for Lifetime/filling in for Shannen Doherty @ Education Connection.

I hope by the rest you did not include my king Tyler Sexlin in there. NHFT.

I think Tyler H is a dreadful actor, tbh. His face/body makes me WEEP, but LOL at his acting, sorry.

Different strokes and whatnot.

Keep seeing him from just ONTD, so I guess Teen Wolf made a big leap from season 1 to 2..
viva_espanyol 18th-Oct-2012 01:56 pm (UTC)
Can't fucking wait for the new season to start tbh. I'm a Sterek shipper all the way but it recently dawned upon me that it will never happen on the show. IT FUCKING HURTS BUT IT'S TRUE.

I also think if Jeff Davis has no plans to make Sterek canon, he should just outright say it instead of trolling the fangirls.

Edited at 2012-10-18 02:11 pm (UTC)
la_sikka 18th-Oct-2012 02:11 pm (UTC)
it doesnt hurt, it's actually okay I dont want to see it on Tv because that gives you less to play with in fandom. I also think it would read as total fan service and not an actual progression of the show, dont get me wrong I LOVE the ship but I dont actually see it happening on the show.
dianakingston 18th-Oct-2012 02:14 pm (UTC)
Well... "Teen Wolf" enjoys a level of popularity that, let's be honest, isn't entirely deserved insofar as the merits of the actual writing/acting/effects go. So I can understand Davis' reluctance to risk alienating a (substantial?) portion of the fanbase by saying "No, that's just not going to happen."

That said, the backlash will be worse the longer he feigns ambiguity, so... *shrug*
devourlove 18th-Oct-2012 07:00 pm (UTC)
I don't know why every commenter has to say that it will never happen. What's brought this on now? We've gone from hating it to just vehemently denying that it will ever occur. Yet, Scott/isaac is somehow more plausible? Despite scott constantly declaring his love for allison from every rooftop?
ohmiya_sg 18th-Oct-2012 07:16 pm (UTC)
lol ikr? If anything, Scott/Isaac is less plausible because Scott's actually talked about only liking girls and he's in love with a girl who loves him back. It makes sense to talk about how Sterek isn't happening when a comment about how the fandom has gone overboard comes out, but it doesn't stop me from liking the ship or thinking it'd be cool if they actually did go there.
viva_espanyol 19th-Oct-2012 05:08 am (UTC)
Honestly, I think everyone on this show is more amused by Sterek than anything else. Plus, Jeff Davis basically ignoring the Sterek questions at NYCC and then Dylan saying he doesn't get it makes me think it's not even being considered as a real possibility on the show. :/

As for Scisaac, I don't think anyone is really expecting it to become canon. They have a cute bromance and all but it's obvious Scott is an established straight character.
ivysaur 18th-Oct-2012 10:29 pm (UTC)
Yeah, if he's certain that it won't happen, he needs to say so and stop dangling the carrot in front of fandom. I mean, I'm fine with it not happening, but being vague and teasing is not cool if it's not going to happen.

maybe I'm misreading it, but he said "we don't go on Twitter" but Tyler Hoechlin used to post a lot. He became less active starting this summer, it seemed, when the Sterek stuff started to get brought up a lot.
rinmonsterer 18th-Oct-2012 05:14 pm (UTC)
So looks like TW fandom finally matured into the stage when we get batshit crazies? Congrats on your rite of passage, fandom! It feels like only yesterday you were full of meta comparing Teen Wolf to the greatest literary classics and baking cookies for Jeff, our generation's Shakespeare. Are tinhats harrassing Tyler and Dylan's girlfriends yet?
thornoftheroses 18th-Oct-2012 05:18 pm (UTC)
I always assumed that was the case, tbh. It was embarrassing to see how many people would get on Twitter and unleash the cray directly at Dylan and Tyler. I mean, seriously.
tsarinakate1 18th-Oct-2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
This is why fandom needs a fourth wall. And not just for Sterek, but also the batshit crazy 13 year olds who tweet Dylan about how much they want to have sex with him and then brag about doing it on twitter and then bitch about how they never get tweeted (is that the word?) back.

I'm all for fandom becoming slightly more interactive between fans and writers, etc. but some people need to check themselves before they wreck themselves. You are ruining it for everyone.
devourlove 18th-Oct-2012 07:03 pm (UTC)
That's unfortunate. Supernatural + 1D = absolutely no boundaries. I suppose we should have seen that coming.
aurexus 18th-Oct-2012 11:38 pm (UTC)
dianakingston 18th-Oct-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
It's certainly a bit of a tangle. :) Here's how I understand the situation:

The trouble with Danny is that, in the absence of any other named gay characters on the show, it would look like he ended up with Stiles by default. No one comes out looking good in a Token Minority Couple situation.

With Scott having identified himself as straight, Boyd on the run with Erica, and Jackson's "true love" with Lydia, that really only leaves Derek (or, oy vey, Peter) as potential male love interests for Stiles. Throw in the age difference for some added taboo, and of course it drives tumblr into paroxysmal fits.
sparkysparky 18th-Oct-2012 02:49 pm (UTC)
i already ship Stiles with one of the new Alpha twins, the "smart one" tbh. But then again, if they bring in a new character just to pair with Stiles, it will incite just as many riots.
dianakingston 18th-Oct-2012 02:56 pm (UTC)
That would probably depend on the new character - in theory, you could introduce someone early in S3, write him well enough that the fans love him (ie: Isaac), and then pair him up with Stiles. Because I honestly don't believe Sterek Fever is about Stiles and Derek - it's just that they're currently the most convenient configuration for the relationship people want to see. If Stiles can have that with a new character who's more Tara Maclay than Blaine Anderson, I think the Great Fandom Volcano God will be pleased. :)
