Scream’s Jack Quaid and Melissa Barrera on legacy cast and delightful commercials on set


Jack, what’s it like to play Woodsboro Outsider as Sam’s boyfriend? Do you do any advertising or fun in some of your shots begging people to get out of town?

Quaid: [Laughs] I love it. I love playing Richie. I think the biggest challenge of that part was: I’m a horror buff. I love horror movies and pretending I don’t really know anything is a bit of a challenge. I like to play characters that represent the audience. [I] I love playing characters where, more or less, my reaction is what the audience is going through. That’s always really fun. I did ad-lib a lot. That’s what I love about Matt [Bettinelli-Olpin] and Tyler [Gillett] is that we all libbed a lot and they highly recommend it. They make sure not to let that take over the scene.

I feel like I watch movies sometimes, and I’m very mindful that we’re in ad-lib territory now. They make sure to keep it in a certain box, but they let us collaborate, and they let us try everything and give us options, which is free. You don’t want to be locked into just one thing. You want to explore every scene and they really let us do it. I was amazed, and I was really surprised at how much, not only me, but how many ad-libs from all of us made it into the movie. Great.

Barrera: I feel like Richie has a lot of great comedic moments in the movie, and a lot of it is Jack’s improvisation.

Quaid: Thank you.

Barrera: He’s so good. He broke my heart so many times while we were filming that I was so embarrassed that I said, “I ruined the shot because I couldn’t hold it because he was so funny.”

Quaid: I’m not … [Laughs embarrassingly with his head in his hands.]

Barrera: He’s naturally funny.

Quaid: After you got to a certain point in the day, I said, “I’m going to forget about acting. I’m just trying to make Melissa break this tape.” I broke David, and that’s my new claim to fame.

“Scream” opens exclusively in theaters on Friday, January 14, with early screenings taking place on Thursday.
