Chattin’ with McLovin

Chris Mintz-Plasse

Get your Goldschläger and fake IDs ready, girls, because Superbad badass McLovin is turning 21. Actor Chris Mintz-Plasse celebrates Saturday night at Tao (doors open at 9:30 p.m.; $30 for men, $20 for ladies, free for local ladies).

You're turning 21 in Vegas! That's a big deal.

I know. It all goes downhill after 21.

What have you got planned?

I will walk into Tao right [at midnight] when I turn 21. It's going to be so exciting. I've never been to Vegas. So I don't know what to expect. Everybody says you party until 5 a.m. So, I guess you'll be seeing me around 5 a.m, wandering the streets of Vegas.

Will you be gambling?

I think so. I'm going to get a little drunk first and then gamble away all my money. I will probably stick with blackjack. I play blackjack because it's so easy. I'm not much of a poker player. I'm always loud and obnoxious when I play poker, but when I get a good hand I shut up. So everyone would know when I have a good hand.

Have you figured out what your first legal drink will be?

It has to be something good, right? Maybe I'll have them concoct a crazy shot for me with like 12 different kinds of liquor.

How many people recognize you as McLovin and approach you?

That tends to happen a lot. I actually just had a person driving by me a minute ago yelling "McLovin!" It is weird that people are yelling something at me that isn't my name.

Your character in Kick-Ass, Red Mist, seemed to be a step away from the McLovin type. How was the process of making that movie?

I got to play a superhero, so I got to shoot some people and play with nun-chucks. It was an amazing movie to work on — probably one of my favorites, you know, out of, like, all three that I've ever done. Hah. I would love for there to be a sequel, honestly. I want to play Red Mist again.

Be honest. Have you ever had a fake?

I'm not a big drinker or partier, so I've never needed a fake ID. I prefer to stay at home, hang with my friends. Plus, I feel like a fake ID wouldn't work for me anyway because I look like I'm 12. They wouldn't buy it at all.
