When he’s not directing SNL "Digital Shorts" about penises, Akiva Schaffer can be found making movies that liberally reference penises. This weekend, he releases his second full-length film, The Watch — a potty-mouthed comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill as suburban vigilantes who stumble upon an alien invasion. We asked Schaffer about his own onscreen sexcapades, how to handle actors wielding sharp objects, and blowing up stuff. Then we buckled down for a serious chat about how the tragic Trayvon Martin murder affected Schaffer’s movie.
