Adam DeVine has joked he should have been paid more for getting his "dick out" in the new comedy 'Game Over, Man!'
Adam DeVine wasn't nervous doing full frontal nudity in 'Game Over, Man!'
The 34-year-old 'Pitch Perfect' actor stars as Alexxx Kingle in the new comedy romp by Kyle Newacheck and in one scene, audiences catch a view of his penis, and DeVine knew from the very first draft that he was to be seen full nude.
Speaking to Collider, Devine admitted it was his idea and said: "I think that was my idea, actually. It was in the very first draft.
"There were two scenes that made it through every incarnation of the script, and that was my dick being seen and Shaggy getting held up at gunpoint and having to sing 'It Wasn't Me'.
"Those two scenes were there when we pitched the movie, and when we would get feedback on the movie, those were the two scenes where everyone was like, 'That's so funny! That has to stay in!', with both of those scenes, so that's just what stayed in.
"So, when it came time to do it, I wasn't that nervous because I had been planning on doing it for six years."
DeVine - who stars alongside Blake Anderson and Anders Holm - also joked that he demanded more money because he had his "dick out".
He said: "I demanded that I get paid more than the other guys. I was like, 'I've gotta make more money! My dick is out!'
"No, not really. Originally, there was a little bit more in there. We did a few test screenings, and it was the number one scene in the movie that everyone talked about the most afterwards.
"They were like, 'Oh, that was so funny!' But we found that people liked it even more, if we cut it down a little bit, so we did cut a few shots of the member."
All three actors worked with director Newacheck in the American comedy series 'Workaholics'.
DeVine also mentioned how there was talk of using a prosthetic but concluded more questions about his manhood would have been asked.
He said: "We totally could have used a prosthetic, but then I would have had to answer all kinds of questions about why I used a prosthetic, whether I have a weird penis, and whether it's super small.
"It's very regular-sized. I'm not embarrassed by it. I just don't have a lot of shame, so I'm fine with it.
"Now, I can't make jokes about it either being super huge or incredibly micro because everybody is gonna know that I've got a standard issue."
'Game Over, Man!' is available to stream on Netflix.
