American audiences know Eric Bana from his complex performances in movies like Munich, Black Hawk Down and Ang Lee’s Hulk. But in his native Australia, Eric got his start doing standup and sketch comedy. Eric and Marc share their respective experiences of the Australian comedy scene and Eric explains how his gift for mimicry and impressions helped him transition from sketch to dramatic acting. They also talk about Eric’s new movie The Dry, why the demise of movie theaters is greatly exaggerated, and why Australian actors are rarely allowed to play Australians.

and he's got that accent.
That lovely australian accent. This is
he talking to Eric Banner is at your house. Are you? Are you in your house, Amazon and enhance morning yet

Friday morning and I mean in Melvin, so you ve been up an ad
you're, you're you're, your coffee, you're ready,
feed coffee very nice.
excess varied ass, home, cooked breakfast, excellent home Pine bird coffee ready to guy well, so
lot of energy in the description of that breakfast long enough to need to know. I need to know what that means. Now. Would you where? What is the breakfast?
really excellent quality soured. I would you be placed now I didn't like myself,
So you are one of those people during lockdown didn't master the yeast, breads
I feel like for every year,
spread. The man at the posting that had to be an Eric banner doing absolutely swayed Ethel in regard to bacon bread. I gotta, be, I gotta be out with it or GM. Here now I did bake a couple of quick brand.
No yeast involved. Jesse
couple Irish showed a breads, but I did it. I couldn't get out a locked down without Bacon a fuckin bread and I'm not ashamed of it.
My joy region, I wouldn't do more of it- is because our Edam and then and it doesn't stop than it's like nine breads- and I say I'm just perfecting it-
got double chins, it's not. I can't do it.
Now I am more than happy to hand, and I was the bike associate with it was nice, but is sound. I ties Gus and like a like, a real tossed, the he but avocado some some eggs.
Really sensational strong Lahti
that? I knocked out so one at that
the start of my day, good work, good work. I need to know more about the word tossed her. What is it may tell us
Natasha Lanka, yeah yeah.
Is this the minute you throw ever caught owing to a sentence in twenty twenty? Twenty one put you into a category, and maybe I mean that category you got about a dude that are going to be like you get a slack in Tasker Canada. What is good, but no that sent through most of these guys most of these services
Ireland meet heads,
browse in there. You know and jocks are now. I completely kido diet there like they're, like
erected women most of them. Yet I had everything I'd every on, I'm not that person at all. I just I just like the ritual of breakfasts, my five meal, the die. That's what makes me really shitty when I'm working on a film that are you
They don't have time to do my breakfast ritual and I have to face humans. First thing in the morning reacts. My biggest struggle on a shoe,
So when I'm at home, that's that's my indulgence alike. This slow start to the day with a really nice breakfast and coffee,
I wanna during lockdown man. I watched for some reason. I watched a Munich for the third time and Jesus man, you were fuck
in great in that movie. Thanks man
was it was. There was quoted
MIKE jewish Ray
now, I'm half german population born here in Australia
so you're, really not jewish,
male rum. Really, I'm really not, but you know. The funny thing is that when you, when you were a kid, I don't really know a lot here. You know that the sound of german relatives and friends, you know dozens.
and very different tomato too to jewish people. So I
to be a Walter work at there was actually a difference between the two when I was when I was growing up in that it wasn't all just one on the site right. What a german juice you know about it,
lemon juice, all german polish russian day. That's where all the ash cannot zis come from.
but when you did that movie I mean to be involve like it's such a heavy. I I think it's one of Spielberg's best movie year. I agree, I mean look the sub.
Take matter with insanely. Appealing to me. I'd read the book. Luckily,
and just a minute just like take every box of what I love in the film and Seventys. It was a thrill. I was an incredible subject. Matter was a true story. It was you know,
Spielberg at the top of his game in terms of visual
styling, inheriting in score and everything,
and then suddenly you get asked to be a part of it. I just like every single dial, we just pinch myself,
we'll just turn up to work.
Look around as the only extras you know, dressed in the seventies, gay with sideburns and nodded
Carson and it looks good. I mean I'm in Heaven, yeah sometimes
You have the seventies, you know you are look good. The sixties look terrible, I mean like
no actor can transcend. Those pants is just once
the hair and the trees it gets.
art, but the seventies. They were good. Won't. You know, there's another thing that kind of works against you these days, which we didn't happen on Munich. We were still shooting thirty, five millimeter. So there's another thing that works a guy. She now is that the digital cameras so crisp reality so crisp, and so it's it's kind of like
will our memory says that that that image should be slightly crumpled, invited that's terrific,
use the same images from the sixties that a pristine
I was always is kind of jet, just a position. That's going on em in I'm one of visual references a bit confused right all Chris. All images of the sixties are done relative to the technology and film that they had even still photographs. All of it was
of the color was a little jacked up. There was only I was a little hazy, every
but he was high. So you kind of felt high looking at it yeah
not yet there was someone doesn't. Does it poses a film about the sixties in two thousand and twenty and its shot, you know without will wither almost I'm accents economy on a camera and
and you don't try the great enemy right, but nobody, Munich LUCA. But what did you do? How did you get jewish to do that? Did you with real guy here? He was by,
stand by saw a real person who I, who I
May or may not have had a chance to make with,
I had a really long time to prepare my so they even
the first instance. I had a really good Amanda Prep time, but the film waiting to turn around because Stephen was working on the script and our initial shooting wind I pushed to the following year.
outside when Ireland did did did another movie, and I, like I, had avenue in the back of my head for like two years before we
I love that I think the longer you have four character, just gonna live and just died in the back of your mind is a sum is really
worthwhile and helps helps with acts in preparation, helps with research, and
it's just a lot a lot of time. What would you do with the guy when you got him in the back? Your have liked as an actor you I'd now
ok. I just I was just given another year to work on
they are so you can
you're already going at it. So you take like an hour,
one day a couple hours a week to
the programme yourself to be that guy or feel how that guy fields or look at things. The way that guy looks at things now. I feel like its automatic, the minute I decided
gonna Filmore character, it's like,
a percentage of my brain, is immediately taken over by that person. Twenty four seven, this nice,
switching on or off is no like today
divide an outer avenue. I mean you might do that in terms of accent, preparation and re writing, materials and stuff, but the vote
the rest of the world from that point forward. Until you finish, the film
slightly secured through the lens of that person. Ok, boys, hot. What movie did you go shoot? Try, so that when that wanted to turn now, I went and filled the movie called lucky you with with a curious Hansen
drew Barrymore Roberts Evolve, which was a poker movie which three people saw, including my mom and dad we're, but some
You know so in that case I guess you ve got to Paypal and yourself in your brain, but that's
the thing I love about. Acting though I mean you know. Sometimes it takes a long time to shake off the woods as well, and that's like how you still kind of looking at the world through through
through their lands
but I enjoy, enjoy siphoning off. You know
out of my brain to that. There is not a lot of room up there so unaids, to give as much as I can tell that to the correct act, interesting that it takes a while the shake, as I saw, I saw outputs
You know do American Buffalo and Boston and this
probably the mid eighties
I'm pretty sure he was playing Tony Montana
I saw him to America, where I am sure that he will he was scarface but tat. I felt there were hints of Cuban,
like it was still in it. Did you firesides, probably true? No, no, four
Do I get it? You know like especially guy that, when you're operating at a certain time,
a simple level.
you I was like of a woman thing. I could do nothing
took him years there yet, but he can still
do it. I mean you you're, very capable of a too, but I could see
once you get into the groove of somebody. Specially a powerful character
how do you not the outer you not get stuck with it for a while. Yet
I think. Also with you know, your reference with pertain, I'm mighty. What happens is the key
At the ends up being alive,
a bit closer to you than you realize and inside laws the the similarity that shake right,
right so, whether its without know whether it's the kind of you?
openness that I feel is a person that makes it easier for me it's a kind of like sinking to his skin. I don't know maybe
that's something that's going on without me realizing, but
think. Sometimes you know. Maybe I characters a bit similar to us in wiser that we're not not really aware of an unknown. You know that. That's that's! Probably what you'd noticing
right, but I guess you that in your way to work- but I mean We'Re- did that when did you
art noticing that you could?
because if you're gonna, if you think about these characters and they become party you so quickly- I mean that must have something you did at a very young age where you were able to just sort of lose yourself in in becoming something
as it may, it must be some strange,
and have a habit. You had early on yet one of my favorite things that there was a keepers in impersonate other family members and to me the most thrilling
part of any person nation? Isn't the impersonation its
trying to work out the dialogue for the impersonation right right, and so I
I just always have had this thrilling sensation when I can come up with.
Sentences on behalf of other people, but I do tomorrow.
what every single day and I single die. I still do
we watching the news and someone in go to talk, and I will I will say what that that pricks about this
I am sure enough, and it is
Is this thing of like trying to put
self in their shoes and
If you know someone well enough, it's like anyone can that in person I stay father or their mothers, United,
Finally, what they gonna like, I can read the script for my parents before they walk in the door, ran by rights, gonna be disgusted. What's gonna be said, I real
I really love? I love that I love
puzzle- and that was something that was there was a kid. It wasn't something that I had to work on, something I really enjoyed. I enjoyed making people laugh it it's interesting, though, with parents, because I just noticed that when my parents- it's like you right-
You do know exactly what they're going to say and I don't know
means if their shallow or predict a boar. We just note
and so on, but there is something I guess
when you look at it that way, there is something actually empathetic in the act of doing
an impression that you're sort of generating the dialogue for yeah. I guess it's, it's must be.
complementary, because it means you're you're. You pay attention to that person it and it was it was
Ricky for me what our back when I was doing sketch comedy cause people would be like
ah, you know, are you gonna? Do
Do you feel really mean when you're taking down a figure from television? Unlike what now
because it's like
I'm not trying to ridicule them, I'm just trying to be them in a funny. Why in writing? So that is, I think that is common.
A major economic guess depends on how you use hey use. The way is not an old saying you know in imitation is the highest form of flattery or something like that. But what did you are you coming brother,
ancestors year I have one all the brother he's threes elder. Does he
waving show business he's an accountant. Why does
He hasn't finance, not nothing at all to do to deal with the business. The officers and numbers man he's a is a six point: seven numbers man, you got your huge power,
on six October. I grew up thinking. I was sure, because him, because he had been actually seeks to that sort of that's tougher- a movie star, usually there about five for uniting. Most of them are to fight for
three. You know big heads good for you
same archives, does love it when you six to day they were they down? I love it may do I do it. I think I do.
Because they all want look teeny, tiny, oh that's right and they will have to work it Tom Cruise and platform, shoes
when did you start doing real entered
you didn't study at nice. I started in stand up when I was twenty two. You really should you were
an actual stand. Yet I stand up for
over ten years- oh my god,
if I've ever seen any of the stand up
Is there a lot of no Ellison? It's it's
pray, digital and pray, fill that trade and others is this very little amend this stuff from my sketch Kommeni showed that, but not much is not much that exists there and you can stand United ten years yea and off the chopper I was still I was still touring is a stand because I heard you were stand up. You know I got sent home from Australia. Why would you do I just can't have bombed
a bad they sent me home. I set a bad time. Was
maybe ninety one or ninety two- I think the
what was called the last laugh
places where I started using carbon yeah? We're will enable brother and sister that ran the place. Mckenna gave mechanics cause. You got a good memory. Yes, that was one of the values that I did. I started out, and so I started us around that
my started around wealth. I tell you when I started because I wrote I remember the Gulf WAR breaking out, while I was in America
and then I came back from America and I started doing stand so he says I added ninety ninety one yet rang on one on its yeah. I just took the gig. You know I just moved to San Francisco and, as may be a strong middle act, strong feature but
This guy saw me in New York is waking. I want to come headline in.
Again, I knew what I said. Yes, it was a mistake because it was like, though, be
a week previews in three weeks. Time will extend a fifth weakened.
Four travelled internationally for that long and it just fucked my head up, and I just got there like after the first week it with such,
Ya Goin. I went in the main room, the big room, elbows Figaro,
it was it was great fleet- was hosting yeah yeah.
and then there was like this this this
These two women who did like a musical thing, a burlesquing thing within accordion, one of em,
accordion and and
then there was an intermission or no, then a guy came out and escaped from a strait jacket on a unicycle and then intermission.
and then me- and I was like by the time I watched
that shit. I'm like I'm fucked, there's no fuckin way
man, I take so hard. The guy came up to me and the next day these, like maybe I'll, go home. That was a hard road because it was a big room and I had a really high ceiling yeah. It was like a circus in yeah, yeah yeah and if it makes you feel any better, I supported the amazing Jonathan there are you an
that and that really really suited the amazing Jonathan
his energy and he's he's act but
I know what you mean that I know that room very well and it was really broad- and I had a super high ceiling which we do not want. Is a stand up
he's near a little room upstairs that you could play to their yeah, that's a slice
pull a joke that was good, Le Jug upstairs. That was better because it was a lot more intimate, tiny ass, though so, like a cabaret room, the absolute fuckin, where students that was a long flight home man. Yet
because I don't know neither room. I did this device art show the night before, but he was out of town, and
Russell Crow. He was
was on the show when he had Jackie
just done like robber stopper. He was a
who is promoting robber stopper right. So why
no one knew that guy was, I didn't and I'm freaking out, because
It looks like the Letterman show. Only the desk is on the wrong side of the studio
It looks a lot like the let em and show and it sounded like the linen Yankee and I get out fairly didn't realize, cause we went, giving the let em and show a while to put two and two together, but that didn't go well and they took me they're right after I landed in which it was just
Ok, I'm like a man, not your fault, but I'm glad we can connect on the fact that that
and was not easy. It was. It was not easy for four for a regular kind of act.
But who are you guys and in terms of what drove me to stand up
we are friends over there did you know, fleet. I didn't know flight welcome and I got I got two knife lightning and then we did a little bit. It say they stuff together,
flight was already well established when I started so he was part of the all God he was highly established. All God we're not when I got started it
I was, I was more inspired by Americans because I wasn't up. We went thing presented with
strain Canadians in Australia? Stand up, wasn't something that was, I believe, respected right. So it was
you Richard Pryor, I was my hero. Richard Pryor was was my absolute here because I loved
I love exacting lovely story telling off using easing he's incorporating
Eric into his stand. Our last was like the ultimate. You know he didn't tell jugs
lotta heart lotta hot, so here is my ear.
Will you do and impressions Youse doing impression
similar I was I was. I was using
impressions in storytelling, yeah, so
I was not a joke Stella, I did
encourage hecklers, I didn't try getting too banter. It was like five or ten minutes stories. Five minutes story, five or ten minutes story structure, that's hard
because, if that's, if, if you're not do away with the five minutes and you're too
half in that's a lie.
two and a half minutes come here yet
Well, that's where the impressions ahead, because any time you you you break into a voice that sounds different, took to your own Paypal economy,
paying attention, if they're not laughing they're playing attainder excited yeah
Where they celebrity impressions within these stories are just your people you ate at times yeah, sometimes all or thy, be that they just random media, and everyone recognizes immediate wrought. Everyone recognizes it carried out, even if they don't actually now do who it
everybody loves you idiot character,
not gonna lose with the Dumdum Sir,
yeah, but he never took any any active.
Clowning lessons or anything now, thus
so I started out in stand up, and then I and then I audition first Sketch Comedy programme which was very similar to sell. I not live called full frontal,
right hand and another
my big break and then
sorry. I was through sketch comedy many users sketch comedy that icon alikes during that prices figured well what's the difference between these
stride. Acting, I didn't say, like there was like a for university course today, cardinals like there's, not a lot of difference.
Yeah yeah. I can have a go at this. No, I think I think that's true. I think I like yet the hands on.
yeah. Why fuck your head up with people who think they know things that approach
we better anyways,
when you're actually doing the hands on experience, work so
be doing or improper was all written sketch. A lot of it was was written. A main waiting problem were working in the rod is room in a kind of God. I love working with, and I love rotting myself my characters, but I just
loved it and it was just there was a time in my life was the most fun. It was a most exhilarating we'd we'd work Monday to fraud. I would record log in front of an audience on a fraud I not, and that would go to add the following
first I turn around was pretty quick.
You know you. I will do stuff that was really Corinth. It was thrilling
absolutely thrilling and I was down man I was like this is the end of the road like all this is that, as far as I thought I'd further,
I thought I'd ever get. I was happy
how many seasons did you do bodied for citizens of full frontal and then added another year of my own sketched Kommeni short sighted foggy is a sketch see you actually had your own sketch comedy, show on australian television four year, yeah serious sort of like a NASH.
star boats homo, but the Tom I left,
the show you I was I was pretty well known and destroy shy was a really high. Writing sketched Kommeni was was what we did. Reach
well, we did sketch comedy very well.
And we did not do sitcoms well, so
gets comedy, was kind of like a very comfortable place. First, try an audience and first try and production
and it was at a really high level for a lot of ease and in fact
the end of our show was like the beginning of the end of the table
its comedy here:
reality, tv started and a lot of that
production dollars, stopping funding to sketch comedy programmes and an guys, like me,
There are no longer got a break in that in that spice. Oh, my god pushed out by the horrible reality shows no
intentional funny, just tragic people being funny not on purpose,
I don't think I figured that live tv was just shape ass though he had a large sporting programmes and more
a variety and it was just- there was just white shaper than this sketch comedy stuff was expensive for them. You know we're
cried out department? We went to a lot of trouble. Our assets were fantastic if we were wrong
ripping off a movie that the set on it
Geez, I would be would be fantastic
will be to really high standards,
She had really great production production standards.
I like it. I like there is it the same structures? I could be BC that the other state pace for some of it is it like that are as an independent, and I said that this third, the network that I was working for the time was- was a fully commercial networks as well. It wasn't state funded that that size and where you live
People that you are working with did a lot of them. Any of them make with the break. The movies are not many. A lot of them was stride act as a lot of them come from the theatre. This is what the what many of us that we stand up soon in that space. There were a few of us, but it was too. I think, when
I started, I was one of only two or three on the shadow came from a stand up background.
I saw a lot of them with serious act as to who who did not alive theatre
stating television comedy, but not many Saddam
the jump, I've it's up to two films and labour, but do you like me in funny? I mean what is the last time you were funny on purpose, so funny people a little bit special correspondence. I was more kind of foil for Ricky
I really enjoy it- I just
like it love opportunity. I think your thing ha
and it doesn't really- it doesn't really bother me for some reason. I've always had a lot of people. So how is it you ve, never done said I not live and wanting to stand up and what can you do more colonies in America and And- and I think
because I did so much of it back in the die it's it's kind of like
kindly that, like I don't, I don't feel like you have to
prove it twenty by wiping us. Those first to movies I mean that the cast
Oh it's sort of a mythic. He had great movie which die
I unfortunately haven't seen, but I've heard people talk about it, and I didn't really realizing until this morning that
that, you are in it and I would want
Chickens. I know it's on my list to watch by here. So many people talk.
Bout that thing, that's a comedy right, yeah, yeah! It's it's! It's a really beautiful gentle comedy! It's it's a really great script, ferry
regional yeah, Holly,
recommend that was your first film does. My first will yet be a tiny Raul, but yeah, but, like
Why chopper I mean that guy as menacing and is bizarre as he was a sort of a funny character. I mean that
that character is broad and weird in hilarious and scary.
in almost like a clown. Sometimes it's very unique.
A combination of of stuff, that guy is absolutely
He was hilarious. He had you not eight. He had the ability to turn to understand a person quicker than anyone. I've I've met this time. Only name in a guy must mark Brandon Raid
and he was a lifestyle, are now no past life you years ago, but now
he was hilarious with here. A criminal that later became just sort of this. You know infamous
person about town. What was this whole story, the arc of that
the thing is. I was quite quite a violent criminal who then, who then
the series of letters fragile yes to two to a journalist which thin formed a book
You just have a natural turn.
The phrase he had a very funny way of expressing himself that anyway
this enigmatic we're locked,
or not, will you loved him or hiding you? You couldn't
listening to the guy. Yet here
Just had the ability that if he was in a room, that's where the attention was going was going to tell him you're, fucking, all energy,
there was no one else in the room, but he there that's that. That was the power that he had. So he, but
yeah a charming sociopath, absolutely but what but, when he got out of jail he was sort of this street.
each man about town, right or white? Well, what was interesting was it after the film came out, like you know,
obviously dollars spake format, it seems a kind of legitimizing to a degree. I hate
he remained strike
he remained on the straight and narrow rock or all the way through the that his his last sort of ten or fifteen or twenty years, so he had he had rehabilitated to to
large? Did you remain friends? Now, I'm not one of these actors. That dumb feels like it's kind of
my duty or Canada the thing
Do I don't know? I almost good luck, it's more respectful to not pretend that that that way
Where are the same same world? I think market
Had this understanding it better
a familiar that, as you know, I mean cause how
That's not gonna, be the most codependent relationship. You if you dont want to be
yeah that you might not want those guys colony every week. What's up
Where are you filming next year? I'm coming down a job here, Jack
no like who I am
got to know I'm a bit before we started filming and numb and then it it's just felt better to have had some distance
So, what's the difference in your mind between do
when an impression and portray
somebody here ways are different dry.
For you or is it kind of?
same thing. I mean you spend time with him in order to understand him, and then he said
take ownership, an interface, your emotions with you know your
chance of that guy? Is there a difference between act?
in doing an impression. I think there is a main. Obviously it's it's. It's kind of like a difference between us up a pencil sketching a painting, rarely moroccan,
do a quick sketch, a pencil and guy who's that and you know, was and then I could go into a big painting in it. That would be a different thing, so I think
the time that you are afforded in long form. Storytelling obviously means that you you're going to a different level at the very core thy yeah.
not there's, not a there's, not a ton of difference. It's just
What are you? What are you a listed eliciting from from that? So I? U inhabiting
a person to get a laugh
happening that person to try and tell a story and make you feel something. So it's like you pointed straight either way. But you know the contacts when you're doing comedy and
you're doing it for real unit
We can see how it feels very different when you interact with other actors or performers in those two different scenarios must definitely
yeah and I I enjoy the storytelling side of it. You know, because I really respected in oak
from stand up, it's like what you write material and you ve got a beginning in an ending my out, a move from here to there and it takes discipline
If it's not working gotta, be honest with yourself about it and try and pick it apart and make it better road dump it
an end. It feels that way when you, when you doing film as well the United much control over the material, but you
you still relying on your instinct either make something better or express if it's not if its not working- and you have to
factors for the Yankee. I need a new hope that their relations should be such that you can have a good dialogue about with it. We did
Have that with the like.
Ridley Scott on Black HAWK down yeah I mean it was you know, you're, one of sort of thirty two act is, but
damn, I had a really really good relationship- was revealed a really loved him. As a director there was so much fun. I was
attic an insane and like nothing it up ever been a pot of again, but it was. The whole thing was immense. I
that that that redefined and contemporary
the depiction of war in movies. I think that was the first.
They are truly modern war movie yeah
visually it was. It was a bit of an assault, I guess citing private, Rhine and blacker than a similar, in the way that I really just try to make you feel like you're in
but just the nature of warfare with so much different in those two movies like saving private Ryan. Is you know, that's a world where two movie, like the the way that war,
fair works now and that the idea that you guys were there on a mission that couldn't even be publicized
is the or acknowledged you know with it. That's insane,
the operation itself with some?
you know that you just never saw before on screen. Yeah, yeah and and
and as a result, I think in some what might it by
on settling and really thrilling at the same time out of its kind of beautiful as well. It was some say, incredible moody,
usually now, when you work as I talk to people that do you know the you aren't on your feet and you got cast in these four
few movies, I mean we're you sort of like wide open in terms of influence in
what were you were learning onset and in and in terms of Canada?
expanding your own. You know tools to do the thing. Like one
round. Black hawk down. Are you picking up a lot of stuff from other actors or you self contained
loop itself in time, but I guess you know you you're, you really really open. I mean I'm really paying attention to the director. I love the camera,
yeah, I'm playing a lot of attention to what to do what they are doing and how how I can help
then, where do I see within,
the frame, and that sort of thing, and I love
love the place of work,
working with other with other actors. I'd I'd, try not to China to pay too much attention to their today,
I say yes, because I'm sort of warring backbone think, but when I, when I went
acting with someone from the agenda,
Russian that I love ya. I play I, I probably pay more attention. So if I'm working with a robber, devolve or Pedro tool or a nickname,
the same value. You know some of these legendary Paypal
Have you worked at all and the have where'd you work with Nick Macnulty was in the original hawk. He played a plight.
my father in in the can an- and it was
It was just sign.
The oxygen tank take a heated oxygen. Ok, I'm right. He said to me one day. He took a here the oxygen and he said to me.
I don't really need this suggests- makes him think you're fuckin crazy. They pay
this is all in act.
Is this man,
right all his announcement in Dubai
all that must have been crazy because you can.
that guy so like is so subtle man there's not fibre zombies. He growing up. He was my favorite Acta and study
get a chance sleep like my Father in lucky you, which is the movie that you know hardly anyone saw
he was just beautiful. Always work was incredible
and I just love love watching him work?
and an end just picking his Brian. I just love the man. He was too so so interesting, and yet
So if someone I'm working with without generation of active, it's like he does still different. It definitely does
I mean I have little respect for people
my generation, but I'm not in or of any one, my eye, she not a man. It's like it's a different thing, wrong, working with with actors from that from next year.
and you got the opportunity to do that. What what do you think? It's, because those are three very different actors, right, Multi, Duvall and O Toole? What you work with Piero tool
I so Pedro too I was in try out. We were like my father and try actually applied. My dad is realised that now develop, like my dad multiplied, my dad and untold, like my dad myths, pretty cool,
is there so different, like you just did that impression of naughty
but it would be hard to do an impression of Duval yeah yeah, it's the aids
it remains deftly doable.
you know who does one James gone? I talked James Car James Kind can do do really cassettes. They still talk to each other time
I loved how just
in the moment he was- and there are just a couple things that he that he that he did on set, which made me go a K. It's ok, it's a little thing like we were doing the same one day there was someone standing behind in his eye line. You know you
and the way that he just immediately doubt with that person.
And had the move,
and it's easy to just keep acting in that situation like the set is, is not always a perfect
but it was just a reminder that assists like hey. If you need something to make your performance better, it's ok tells amended.
fuckin move it yeah, yeah he's
ok, it's not the end of the world. You know
after you get. It was done. You got your supper. Was this
It was almost like is still in the middle of the sin of like yeah yeah. That's, ok! It's ok to do the that
Pedro tools, amazing, he was so invest edge. They just at so much energy poured into his performance
at that age he was. He was quite all that stage and it was difficult man. It was like a hundred degrees every day and he's in the road and the jewels, and you know I mean
No, I just I was just in all. He he's a veteran of the epic film
This lonely, I mean it's Peter out Lawrence of Arabia. For God's sake, it's Lawrence of Arabia. Absolutely amazing! You do that year. This really special dies. That really are in
how'd. You know I mean I've talked to like I'm, not a big girl. You know cartoon guy,
you know what I've been in. I was. I did a small part in the last Joker Movie, which ruin my
credibility is a guy who judges cartoon movies harshly. By that that whole
the original hawk it's weird it
the divisive movie among the the whole bands and- and it's not
it was pre, Marvel Universe so it,
it. Further stands alone as this. You know this
art film. That was approach,
in a different way, and I imagine that must have been one of the reasons you're going to do this one,
yeah. I wasn't it wasn't a quick! Yes, that's for sure it with it took me while to get my head around it,
Anne and you right in the end it was like was Angli, was gonna, be completely different. I wasn't privy to the to the script, proud assigning want the films on the Ani Films Ogden, where, where that was the case
they take you a long time to decide, I mean what was in what was in negotiation within you ages,
it? Just wasn't. The top
the film that I saw myself do why at war, because
Essentially, I just thought I felt like I was a character actor and that's what I was looking for right. So not a big green guy here,
it was ever. He wasn't. It wasn't. Maybe yes and then I just kind of like
I guess maybe the ANG factor and the fact that I knew I was gonna be different.
Decides to had to have a go. But it's you know it's. Why haven't radar
holding that in that area as easy, as you probably have, we probably have similar feelings towards the genre, have caught a picture, I'm on imagining they're, not the Cotonou, that our
I rise out and say myself, so
that conversation is something I'm having myself. If I want to be a part of it because yeah it's not it's not it's,
not something on queuing up for review and had Norton raw pork has been a trip.
going character for people, but
but I mean I imagine working with Angli. How was he approaching it? I mean like, if you're going in knowing Ike United
the superhero movie, but it wasn't, though,
given the timing of it? It wasn't as much of a spectacle as it is now. You did not you weren't
up against this entire sort of its outcome
subculture its most of the culture. Yet no it did you arrive at the
thus, as we know it now didn't exist back then, and there any certainly didn't gotta eat into a film like that thinking. You were gonna do more than one now like this. No real act, as you know, had had
we're gonna going on around under two or three move that just that wasn't imply. I mean I think them.
First spot a man had only just come out. I think we were the next one. After after the title, Maguire Spider man, so there
The expectations were not the white.
I guess I just approach. It is as a kind of one often and just kind of you not for you,
approach to do another hawk now I wasn't. How did you feel like? Well, the d feel attached to your hawk, as opposed to maybe mark refers Holger ignoring it did you go.
Judge, other people's hopes I haven't seen him also accounts. I ever seen you haven't. You haven't seen!
them, do one hawk heavy seem one other hawk. I saw it I haven't say, might have it have. You talked to add about your hopes of never met,
with the others, not a lot of the Hawkins twining yeah sure. You would think that maybe, when you guys are all deconstructed you'll, do
God panel show together the three hawks
mighty above the, albeit seventies and mark, will still be doing the hulk.
he is the one that worked at a family.
Straw he's he's in for life.
so how many movies, like uncertainties, movies like to be honest with you, I it seems like their australian movies, you don't you
you stay there we're there most of the time right, Bolivia, yet the I never moved. So I haven't I
that's how to I've done quite a few that I haven't done a time. Our answer to feel this.
Out of major urge that it's like something I have to do. Every two or three years is dislike. You know what the Paul
is the pile, and I just choose the best thing on the pile, and sometimes it's a strain, and sometimes it's not so
I recently with with a movie like the dry, which, which was you know some sort of film, that I've been looking for for many many years.
time along and I was thrilled to be able to do that. But Tom
I don't have a hugely strong sense
solve a stroke.
Illness within my body of work. I'm happened too happy to be very
the very open I love working. He went out when I can do it, but some it. It has to follow that with everything else. Well, I mean you you're, born and raised their right yeah and your folks are there not they were MRI.
Thou immigrants yeah. What did your God have? A croatian accent he's a fine
I didn't realize my dad had an accident until I moved at home area
My girlfriend, at the time that you debt has access, it might get, isn't have an exit at all and then, under that a home and suddenly I was able to do an impression of India that I couldn't do it. I was living at all costs. I didn't hear why
until I move that he has a slight acts in her mom, not much just very, very slight, but
The various valiantly out a very strong, an idea.
who have croatian relatives german relatives back in
in those countries, Asia, but not not. Yet we wait
we do have actually got a lot of the german side.
Actually in America, says that my grandmother's system migrated to New York
and my grandmother came to Australia. So so I do have second cousins and extended family in the states, wild its soul.
I just got it's interesting day care to actually have a story
global internet every everyone have zap, but not
not one generation away out that does Google. The croatian authorities must Moloch his dad was not a child and sorrowful.
what did they? What did they? Would your folks do when you're grown up where the happy about the acting up there?
where it, my mom was a hairdresser saw, grew up in a pair dressing, solemn and my dad was logistics manager for Caterpillar. He worked for caterpillar fur.
forty seven EU tractors, while the longest serving yeah striding ploys ever. Why
I think, to this day is a lot he was when he retired he worked for caterpillar longer than anyone so yeah. I grew up with that.
working for the track, the company in and mum
Mama's headdress. Did he get a prize? You gotta think you gotta be got a model, detain. Ok, I think I've got it in the garage you don't like it. I can t ten Thou priest
Actually, when I came out the details, I regard that as a key, those pretty exotics laughs. They met a try that,
Try is ripe, did you get it
What did you do get to go right on the new tractors when you are
it now he was, he was in office guy, so so that the factory where I wept was down the end of the street. Where I grew up and it was, it was a warehouse- they didn't say much actual tractor action, our displaying shipped off to the minds around astride you inside, but some Noah.
Yes, those this had this kind of affinity with America. When I was a kid, is a result of dead working for an american company.
Yeah! Why I mean you do day, your definitely you're you're filmography is? Is
varied, and I like
get the new movie the dry, I found it very powerful. I mean I I like I've. Seen
few australian movies? Lately
I saw that New Samuel movie with the sheep
oh yeah, yeah, that's it
what kind of moving to I like these small can cause. There's something about the law.
landscape of Australia in certain areas where it's like this,
bars on these and in
the people that live in these towns or mosaic yet strange barnacle
of some kind that give it your like, hardly even exists. There
I think that dry really capture that really well there's there is certain.
quiet menace to the whole thing in the absolutely work with China have every right to write a book. She she captured that really well, the landscape is a major character in the film and that little country tenets
excited me. So much about the film is that a lot of the strain films depict the out back, but they don peaked
The real country towns that we from the city identify with a guy
in the same way that I guess is an American. What do you want? The unified with America is as as the desert, or do I didn't fire with America as a serious,
the thousand towns you ve been true through the course of your lot is
the thousand little towns that you ve been right. That's
that's your Middle America! That's the country, unfeeling! That's the cat!
it's a sign for us, so the dry, the p,
that really really act whereby, whereas anyhow, that is, is that in outback town I don't know what but would be called the output. Well know it's not the out back, so it's in the weight felt its about foreign
I found a wife from where I am also it's. It's about, for four hours been towards the middle of nowhere and its await bell and it's it's very flat at its core,
harsh and very very drawing we filmed the film beginning in two thousand nine saying at the peak of the drought say it: it helped to pit the why it was in the book,
but I guess the characters in the town a very tight. I feel very real, every window which a lot of trouble with with the crossing in the film to make sure that everyone was really believable, because
we didn't want it to be full a caricature. Did you ever a pardon that? Were you a producer of the producers while Yogi my director,
Connally. His wife is causing agent generous and castle his film so because of the competitive,
and she didn't amazing job here, because I thought the casting was amazing. I mean it was
there were a it's one
those kind of movies, where I I dont see them. Often it is sort of a it's. It's obvious,
We are who done it kind of movie yeah, but
you know it's one. Those movies like when those are done well, you're, like could have enact now. I think it's a way, but what about
in which is good.
But it was so yeah yeah menacing and it keeps getting darker and darker yeah and that that was that challenge. We wanted to make the most emotional version possible of that kind of story, and that's what
felt there was some room between the book and the adaptation to just kind of make it
as a marginal as as it could be, which which was what what we try to try
what shaven and, as you say, every single person in this aspect,
in a small house in GO person in a small town at
I just have to make mention here Genevieve I Riley who play scratch opposite me, whose just for now
nominal I mean just yeah. She was just incredible to to work. Yet
you look great same with that old horrible man is echo even an actor
report earlier alike, as we did have some locals play play
extra in cipher flag in some of the pub signs, but Tom. Now it was a year that those beautiful cast-
now. Our people going to the movies in Australia. Is that happening there?
sometimes. We luckily opened on the first of January,
right when Cinemas was starting to get back in a sling, which is why the film, while
while we were able to be such a huge heap at.
Wait where we're back at the cinemas. As of a bad first generate people started to go back,
in limited numbers, but we ended up at the best seventy five percent and dumb yeah. Some big
because they are you guys. Are we anticipating? What do you think you think they're the rest of the world is going to have to follow? You think movies are going about back. What's your? What's your gut on this thing,
bounced back huge yeah, huge yeah, because people
Just don't get excited
feels amazing to be back in the cinema and that's it
the different thing in- and I do think this is a different different call,
They made to be seen on the big screen. Oh yeah, verses movies that had been made to go and straining service ata cabinet
He wants is I'll I'll have that fought is different,
No, absolutely I'm! I'm gonna I'd like to go back to move. I'm gonna do my first stand upset over a year to Morrow and I'm fuckin freaking out well, first stand up in the year
as you said, so, when you doing something tat, you you I'm, assuming you just write all new material from my gun.
I've been I've got I've. I've got nothing yet there is no way. You know we ve all had the same experience roughly for the last year. You know it's like energy,
taking a year off to be terrified, so I dont like I'm, not sure,
where it's gonna go, but that's usually how I start I'll improvise through some ideas. I've got. Will outline, am Morgan. Gonna do a fifteen minute set so Woola,
see out, feels he and I mean
Sadly, the one thing I realized over the last years like you had omitted dad,
Adam Miss anything. I might be ready to stop everything so
but I did a couple movies during the least one movie during locked down with the protocols and I'd like to do
more vat, but I'm curious,
you see I can my last special. I really think I did everything I said
after do stand up wise and I don't feel compelled to entertain p.
Well that way, but I I do feel like I have something to say so will see if that reveals itself
if you now so you haven't you bounds the expectation of what you supposed to be doing versus what you what you wanna do. Well, I mean you so much.
I don't know what drives you, but
One thing I noticed about not doing anything and locked down was it was there was something
Ok about it, because no one else was so enter
the expectations as soon as the world's starts coming back and you start seeing other people working right of with where they doing
I knew I do want to do outdoor shows, but now
People are starting to tour MIKE Fuck. I gotta get out.
They're, like everything. So the final
as chicken in again right it's. But it's like a weird competitive thing, but
What I really want to do on stage. I have to see what that feels like.
you know because a lot of things
gone down over the last year? And again
felt pretty satisfied with the work I did in my last. Our special and I'd like to take it someplace
new. So I got it.
If I have it in mere, I have the courage to explore things in a different way. I certainly don't give as much of a fuck is that-
Please do so so we'll see where you know whether I have the courage to do that.
Vienna. That makes sense. I know it. I know that and yeah does. I know what you're saying about than like.
During the lofty among the things that I loved was was some not having to answer a question about.
you know where you're going to national yeah what what got
If he's gonna movies have no one's got exactly know either. No one doubts
and then he saw Veal guild right many here that I feel you have one set its working. There's one moving production, you like what the fuck is happening.
We do not agree with. Is the aids
I mean I did one. I wasn't going to do any of this guy just kept wanting me to do it and it was the middle of peak covid and I was like what are you fucking nuts?
but he will use like you're the guy, and it was a big part, is the biggest part I could ever do in my
somehow or other. I was convinced by their people that would be safer to be on a movie set than it would be. Go to the to go to the grocery store.
And I believe that, unlike because there's all these protocols in place, did you get
shot down at all. It did you get. Did you get through the whole thing now we made it through do disguise shot a feature on film in nineteen days were on film nineteen days, crazy, you'd, better makos takes count. He kept, you don't get yeah. It was crazy, but
but I was happy. I did that, but yeah I mean, but now I
in future, it I'll come back, and I don't know man
I'm old told you I'm not all of them. Fifty seven. How are we supposed to work? Erika mean I'd fifty two ounces.
how many more films are going may undermine allied when someone dies.
Yes, us sometimes I feel, like its it'll, be a
look. I was wondering
reasons I looked up to devise was his longevity. I love the. I love the trajectory of his Korea and the fact that it was a system
Mrs, like this, this fight a jet at a high
altitude, just maintaining unites nuts are rocket ship, it's his life. Also,
character actor. I mean like it's an interesting choice for you, because you're good, looking guy your big dude, you can carry a movie, but you know
you choose to focus more on being.
Character, accurate as
was to having the weight. I would imagine, or the expectation
you're being a movie star, yeah I've. Never I've never felt like the movie star. Things is
It is a thing that I wanna dance
with a minute's. Its is it'll, finds you at TAT time right, move through year because of the Control
you're playing or whatever, but I think it's
really dangerous territory, and I think it's really boring territory as well. It's really limiting! Why? Because you are expected to act,
you did it to stay in your we'll house, yeah, I think
those actors end up at yet
Nothing, a wheel house diet that can't move around as much. They can't do different things,
The minute you stop doing different things you stopping offered differently amicably, had quit. He literally had
decide not to take the movies that were making him millions of dollars. He had do cause
so we say I'm not
doing any more romantic, comedies
and he didn't work for awhile yeah good,
yeah. I understand that, but I do- and I think I think it's really smart to be cognisant of that. Nothing is two ways he especially for
Eric and act as I think it's easier to be lured into that into that patent? Because
because you live there and it's just as these days and also like Billy crawled up. I talk to that guy too. He he could have in a movie star, but he was like out. I want to do that.
The real work is doing these different guys. You have these different characters.
and that's why I mean you do that to you
this danger with a maybe staffing is that is at what does
now mean that you you're gonna knock back a more
Christine Raoul. That's not the radicals.
Papa lay right. That seems ridiculous them right. That's just things like crazy, told ya,
but like this this movie, the dry, I mean you're, the led by that guy's a deep character.
you don't know what's up? And you got that interesting. You know back
story where you know he's a his easy,
initially a compromised guy, get your rights or is he's a character that finds himself at the head of the store
in that, and that is the site, but that that somehow can always get my head around, but just playing a kind of folly just being a kind of vehicle for forest story.
My first things when our greatest swiftly fucking picture thirty other actors plying they're all I pass right now,
there's, always thirty other people that can do it. I know that, but the most but
what what's relevant
My ego has the belief that I'm one of the only people that can write it or that should are worth worse is right. You got to ask your agent who turn this down
What? Where we're my in line on this one? Who they
go into a vice idea here. It is always interesting when you say no in you, you, your white, for the film to come at sea, who end up plain that paddle yeah.
any you ever like a lot of times, just sort of Michael that makes sense, because when you can see thirty other guys doing it, there's also that party, it's like you don't need me like. I do a thing, but
doesn't require that go, give it to one of those guys. Absolutely absolutely I do.
