The year is 1980, summer has come to a close, and it's time to head back to school. But for the baseball jocks at a small Texas university, the party's just beginning. And for college freshman Jake—played by Blake Jenner—a new wave of freedom has just been found. Crate of LPs in hand, newfound crush (played by Zoey Deutch) on the mind, and a house filled with fellow teammates? It's game on. The hilarious film, which director Richard Linklater (of Boyhood fame) calls the "spiritual sequel" to his '70s hit Dazed and Confused, already has all the hallmarks of a classic. We met up with Jenner and Deutsch at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX, to get the scoop—after all, any film that has two exclamation points in its title has a lot to live up to.
So, let's get down to business. Who pranked who on set? What was it like to work together?
