How did you prepare for the tough physical scenes?
“I didn’t prepare. I just let them hurt me. Turns out it's the best way to get a real reaction. We also worked a lot on that ski mask [I had to wear]. It was lined with silk. I mean, it's a lot to deal with to convey emotion when everything that usually does is covered up. It was really fun for me, though."
Talk about your great chemistry with Will Forte.
“I don’t think you can force it or create it. We got along instantly when we met. We were both interested in the very subtle, odd, not-even-love story. I think good chemistry is chemical, man, I don’t know how you make it.”
What are your long-term career goals?
“Direct, absolutely. That’s the next thing I want to take on. I’ve done a few short films that I just loved the experience of doing. I’m just waiting for that wonderful window and that wonderful script, and that will be the next thing for me.”
Any particular genre you’re interested in?
“I wouldn’t say horror film or like a Matrix kind of a thing...I don’t think you want to see my directorial version of that. I love the human experience, I love human beings, behavior, and relationships. It will probably have something to do with that.”
