One of Matt’s favorite Hollywood memories is when the cops showed up at his apartment to shut down a party. His good friend Chris Mintz-Plasse, who played McLovin in Superbad, opened the door and said, “Can I help you, officers?”. The police officer’s stood there stunned, in utter disbelief that McLovin had just appeared in front of them. Then they began giggling like little kids. Needless to say, the cops issued a warning, and the party continued.
