Two years after hitting it big in Pitch Perfect, Anna Kendrick is back singing her heart out in the musical movie The Last Five Years. Newcomer Jeremy Jordan joins Kendrick in the film they both premiered on day five at the Toronto Film Festival.
ET Canada caught up with the co-stars, and quickly got one small detail out of the way — the singing was pre-recorded. But unlike in Les Miserables, most scenes wouldn’t allow the on-set singing. “There are scenes where we’re in a convertible on the westside highway. It would make no sense to even try to record live sound,” Kendrick says. “So we didn’t want to be precious about singing live and making it a gimmick just to be like “we did the whole thing live.'”;
Jordan, who formerly starred in Newsies and the hit musical series Smash, is a Tony-nominated actor who, sadly, is spending his two-year wedding anniversary away from his wife while promoting The Last Five Fears at TIFF.
Tune-in to tonight’s ET Canada for relationship advice from Kendrick and the happily married Jordan.
