Screen Test Reel
"We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict."
They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I… You know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny.
There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own… I got to know one of the writers really well, Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I’ve been asked to play an interesting role: a complicated, challenging person.
I’ve been in things that have been popular before… To say: ‘I can’t do that which will appear in thousands of theaters on opening day, but I can do this which will appear in this amount of theaters’… It’s arbitrary. I realize how popular comic-book movies are, and now, working on one, I realize why they’re popular – the story is really good, the dialogue is really good, the artistry behind every department is high, the acting is really good."
