WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Born: December 20, 1983 in Los Angeles, California, USA

It wasn’t the baseball or the numbers I connected to. It was the obsessiveness. Bennett [Miller] said that the way we talk about actors and roles and movies with each other is the way my character should be able to talk to Brad’s about baseball. It’s what we do all the time about movies-we analytically shit-talk everybody’s strengths and weaknesses! Everybody I know does that. So that was my in.

My heroes are Bill Murray and Dustin Hoffman. Those are the two actors that both do comedies and dramas, seamlessly. Also John C. Reilly and Philip Seymour Hoffman. They’re all just great actors, neither comedic nor dramatic. They’re just great actors.
