Watch outtakes from Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien's Tinder bit

Conan-Dave-Franco-Tinder.jpg

Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.

Video: Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco look for love on Tinder

In order to be successful in his line of work, Conan O’Brien has to keep up with the times. And in today’s world, that involves teaming up with Dave Franco and trying to meet people using Tinder.

Step one: They create profiles using their real pictures but fake names—Djengus Roundstone (for Franco) and Chip Whitley (for O’Brien). Then after sorting through all of their many matches, including a 74-year-old woman named Gloria who isn’t O’Brien’s biggest fan, they jump into a duct tape-filled van and head to meet one of Franco’s matches. There, they discover what the internet has to offer.

There is at least one crotch shot involved in the making of this video.













There Should be a Sequel: 'Now You See Me'

Every week, EW will imagine a sequel to a movie that we wish would happen — no matter how unlikely the idea really is.

Let me start off by stating the obvious: Not every film needs a sequel. As Darren Franich poignantly pointed out: “Every big-budget movie Hollywood releases now is not just a movie. It’s also an advertisement for a potential sequel, or spinoff, or alternate-universe prequel-reboot.” Valid point, and in most cases, this is true. However, sometimes a full story simply can’t be told in two hours (theoretically speaking) or less. No matter how much you might have loathed The Dark Knight Rises, you have to admit that it wrapped things up pretty cleanly and gave the audience some sense of closure. That’s a sequel’s purpose — closure. Do they always attain it? Of course not. But for every Grown Ups 2, there’s an Iron Man 3.

That being said, most of the flicks released widely this summer were a bit lackluster. One, however, stood out for me. Has anyone seen Now You See Me? Sure, I was dragged to see a matinee viewing, but I’ll admit it: I was smitten. I don’t know if it was Isla Fisher getting the screen time that she deserves, the so-stupid-it’s-clever plot or the sight of an always-welcome Morgan Freeman, but Now You See Me was a gem that could have an equally special follow-up. Don’t believe me? Let me defend my case.

Dave Franco talks new Funny or Die video: 'It probably appears that we let everything hang out' -- VIDEO

Apparently, Dave Franco’s penis is less impressive than DeAndre Jordan’s. We learn this and other fun “facts” (Franco can’t rap…or jump!) in Franco’s latest slightly NSFW video for Funny or Die, “Real Life H-O-R-S-E!”

The title says it all: We watch Dave and DeAndre compete in series of absurdly escalating challenges. Basketball is only the beginning.

EW talked with Franco about his Funny or Die collaborations, stripping down with DeAndre, and his desire to one day direct.
