Even though Seth MacFarlane wrote Sarah Silverman‘s role in “A Million Ways to Die in the West” specifically for her, it still was a struggle to convince producers she was the right fit.
“It was still hard to get the part,” she said of landing the role of cheerful town whore Ruth. “Suits would rather have a starlet than a 43-year-old Jew comedian.”
But MacFarlane, hot off “Ted,” got his way. And it’s hard to imagine a better fit for his kind of humor than Silverman.
“I like doodie jokes,” Silverman said. “This is a combination of smart observational humor and aggressive stupidity.”
Shocking screen exploits from Silverman are not that big a deal for her family, who went to the movie’s premiere. “They are so jaded,” she says.
Her new boyfriend has also been there, done that:
“I watch him have sex on TV all the time,” she said of Michael Sheen, who plays a 1950s researcher in the cable TV show “Masters of Sex.”
Silverman has a recurring guest role on “Masters” this season. Does that mean she will have to watch Sheen have sex live?
“No, I’d never go to set when that … I don’t want to know,” she said. “It’s so not sexy.”
