Interview by Paul Salfen
In THE EXCHANGE, a socially awkward but highly enterprising teenager (Ed Oxenbould) decides to acquire a “mail order best friend”; a sophisticated exchange student from France. Instead, he ends up importing his personal nightmare, a cologne-soaked, chain-smoking, sex-obsessed youth who quickly becomes the hero of his new community.
Written by Tim Long (“The Simpsons,” “Late Show with David Letterman”), the film was directed by Dan Mazer (Dirty Grandpa). THE EXCHANGE also stars Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) and Justin Hartley (“This Is Us”). In this interview, Paul Salfen talks to Ed Oxenbould about his role as Tim.
