Pitch Perfect 2's Adam DeVine: Middle School Cheerleaders Love Me These Days
"I'm always being asked to sing and dance for people," the actor tells PEOPLE
Bumper is back!
Adam DeVine reprises his role as the onetime leader of the Barden Bellas’ riff-off foes The Treblemakers in Pitch Perfect 2. But this time, he’s graduated from Barden University and is crushing hard on Rebel Wilson‘s Fat Amy.
But she’s not the only one who enjoys his sweet harmonies.
“I’m always being asked to sing and dance for people,” DeVine tells PEOPLE. “I don’t. I’m not a monkey who will dance for a dollar. It takes at least two dollars.”
The Iowa-bred actor, 31, got his start in Hollywood as a stand-up comedian. He has since produced and starred in his own Comedy Central series, Workaholics, and held a recurring role as the lovable manny Andy on ABC’s Modern Family.
But with the success of Pitch Perfect, he’s recognized more than ever. “I’ve been accosted by middle-school-aged cheerleaders at an airport,” he says.
Not that he minds. “Pitch Perfect fans are the best,” says DeVine. “I feel like I’ll never be homeless now that this movie is so popular. The fans will take me in and feed me.”
Pitch Perfect 2 opens Friday.
