ONN Interviews The Five-Year-Old Screenwriter Of 'Fast Five' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Hollywood blockbusters are often accused of being intended for an audience with the intelligence level of a small child.

So it's fitting that in the latest video from Onion News Network, the hosts of "Today Now!", the satirical outlet's morning talk show parody, held an interview with the screenwriter of "Fast Five": a five-year-old boy.

"Fast Five," the fifth installment of "The Fast and the Furious" movie franchise, will hit theaters this weekend. The movie, which stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, follows the series' tradition of offering little more than lightning-paced car chases.

"I want the cars to drive fast and then some of them explode," said Chris Morgan (which is the real name of the actual "Fast Five" scribe) in the video, while demonstrating with toy race cars.

The hosts ask Morgan about working with the movie's stars, previous film work and whether he will write more "Fast" and/or "Furious" movies, before Morgan asks to be excused for a nap.
