Those moves runaway see these kind of movies, but I like it It's rather non assuming guy, the opposition is just a fuckin maniac for the for the good, it's in theatres, this Friday March, twenty sixth and Christopher. His wife LISA was there when we we had.
This talk and and you'll hear her chair I made a few times: that services it. As I said before, we covered Moreover, the cookies nest, like it was a new film, this may docking, Christopher Lloyd, evading evacuated. You go far back. Take a rest. Reclining modes means it's time for nap. yeah, I'm alive, now you very life spry on it. I watch a movie last night, runner our guns, that's good. I've done only like. I was worth. It was just a lighted up
real, really you'd, never done what be it the gun play. I got player that with this. This was our core cut it out. Everyone you, when you approach something like that anyway, a is a different. Did then another role because soared over the top. Then you sorted, no, that's you can just go to town right. I like I, was intrigued by the character, aims. highly skilled slick, Davis, mother, yeah mostly because ages. I allowed a pool, Smart He knew her. Handle the hardware and do little strange kind of stuff and trap, the victims who, over there might be very retires cattle old road. We carry on like that, and then his son gets gets a pickle?
and I come out by the and I have one like the last the last climax out there. Don't for justice. What if this becomes a franchise you're gonna have to do that. Guy again and again, I also I hope I live enough to do it again and again, I figure I'll be baby, I wish for one more shot if it happens, like you know that, backstory though I just did the idea that you put that backstory together was at something you know that, because you enacting a long time and when you are, brought something like that. Do you create a back stories that something a director brings to you that's what I had only I mean it was suggested in the script, but I was in every there gave riders It comes out of time and he does today stuff again Where'd, you sure you started in New York Ray and await where'd you
I was born and stamped autocratic. It might- false, always had open your side, the council would go back and forth then, as soon as I got eyes followed a groundswell of europe- and I was ninety ivy I never loved. I was I stay there at all. What was it by penal? eighty five and I to allay where'd you go to the drama school when you were to start acting all their neighbour players school, the fear of some labile can they miser yeah? He was. He was the greatest may abated tone, oppression, ol man. What I learned from him, what kind of guy was he could I'll try to give an impression to him because he was sort of like the American inversion of the method: correct, oh yeah, yeah, never saw such
wise intelligence. He would have free our a three hour at a class of enable players. The body a three hour no and that it professional class, three hours at night, that's a lot of time in this sitting. The chair watching people get up and do their stuff, He never ever lost focus. He been here, he'd be watching somebody doing their work, the analyze it put it please give precise, exact Terry on it. but he was always supporters. It is less rob, but he had A stronger sense of humour wet and he is right.
Data file have caught a guy, and unlike what tools like you, when you, when you approach acting even now like what stuff I mean, obviously, and I've known as from blocking the many actors and over and over again that a lot of it is just how you'd aegis p. You gotta cobbled together your own system and you do what you do where there are things that you learned from me. I know that you still are conscious of doing yes, I am, I may I'll figure about so much now then I'd do up the player. Whatever one night, I took the wrong slightly in a global? That's like a slight wallowing arouses stage. Try they get. into it again and my sister taught me how to keep focus on how to get back, back to the girl them at all that at tat date for that what should based lotta people, Although perplexed, because a word

Who I only say who are you it changes the behaviour as you go along, but get life we're a yellow match, but what, He always say what you do depends on: but the other does so you're always connected and attached. applause, the emotions, long red, that's way as well. We would you get two sets of enacting. That's probably I mean to pry more consistent doing that theater. I imagine when you make them. The jump to film it's hard to hold onto that focus. Could you know you shooting everything in pieces? how much is still while the cameras Raleigh produce it and use it and in any context really I just listen stay present
Will you did how much you deal a stage work initially right? Yes, do you miss that I do, but I eyes still go back to do so. thought. Like gotta, the movies and no more fear.

For several years. I lived in Boston, Somerville, just idea. I've been Brookline, just try of Newton but I know Newton Young Route, nine, a lotta gigs down the cape yeah these the gig gown in Yarmouth, the chinese restaurant. I did I I was all over what was so. What was your first play her? a first pay job in New York Because I get off, ha ha ha ha roll away all over the place I for one workshop too, other, but at the same time, job out through the summer stock region for fear of Allah, but the first, Hey I've had a New York.
