"Me. To do that and he put He put the audition on on video videotape and it was about a forty five minute audition. We did. Probably three or four scenes, three or four different ways. and. We liked so. We liked working that way so much that we carried that into when we were shooting the film. I'll rarely. Because what that does is, it's A. It's a present to the director into the editor yeah. You can play. You can play the scene one way. And then Annella take played another way so the editor the director had a variety of. Different takes to draw from. So so you get you, he would encourage you to to sort of like shift your choices completely for different takes. Yeah, and it was all based on. It's it's as if. It's as if. You're this Florida, redneck. And here's this. New New York journalist came all the way down. Here wants to interview you. Will She's lucky to have your time, yeah! Okay, let's turn it around right you tot- totally intimidated by this woman, this bright New York journalists and water you. This Florida redneck. Is. You don't even look at her yourself right right? Yeah, yeah, it's just that that that's interesting. Because that's seems to like you, you couldn't have acted that anymore. Thoroughly right in terms of the work right because you're approaching it from all these different possibilities, and then you get the Oscar for it, and it just seems like you know just on many levels. You know you definitely earned that Oscar. You know what I mean just to add to this because I have to I have to mention her. and. When, we did August osage county. Merle Merrill is the queen of shaking it up changing it up every take. And as I said when we do these junkets and talk about the work. I say to say to the audience. Nobody knows the talent of this woman unless you're onset watching her because she brings such variety. Yeah. She's astounding. Yeah, so when you're when you're being challenged by the director to do a thing and then also working with somebody that makes it fresh every time that must really feel like the the best part of doing the job that you do it is is. Like it's like it keeps you on your toes because. You're putting your concentration on what she's giving you. What she's giving you and you have to react to that and that goes back to. It just goes back to class work. Sure I guess so now when when you say, you want to push the envelope because I. I watched the resistible, and I think it was a pretty good movie and you know it looks like you know. You and Carell had a good time, but you seem to be cast a lot. At least a few times as kind of a politician of one kind or another or a kind of rural guy that's in one form that. So when you when you think about challenging yourself or or saying that like I, little women just watching that watching you work in that that was completely different and completely rewarding. Yeah. I mean it's not a big role. Obviously, we see that right, but the little scenes are spaced out very nicely. But. Man might treat was watching. These kids yeah. And that talent Oh my God. They were they were really impressive really Sertucha in in Timothy Shalam yeah. They know what they're doing. You know and Laura Dern. Full knowledge how in in that, too? And Merle Elson. I think it's a masterpiece. That movie I let is pretty lovely. But like a like, what would you like to do like you know when you think about pushing the envelope? What does that mean to you well I? Don't have a not an ideas guy, but I put it out there and anybody's anybody's invited to. See what they can do with it, but I think it's remarkable. That nobody has come up with a limited series about the architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Oh, yeah. Sure and it has such a dramatic true life. Incidents that happened to. He and his family and such a long career yet in a beautiful. I'm a huge fan of his architecture and all you know so i. I think it'd be great to. Trade somebody like him at interesting. That to answer your question I. Just you know. I wait for the material to to come or I read a book that I. Know Down The road if it knocks me out and there's a character in there that I'm interested in. Years ago we did this. I did this peace plan REDFORD's brother. Called Horse whisperer that was a that was kind of romantic novel. And I read I heard that Redford was going to do it so. Leaped ahead and read the book and saw that he had a brother and and You know so. That's kind of how that job came. About I kind of pursued that and when you look back on the roles that you have played. What do you think was the most? You either risky for you or the most you know the the the most. You push the envelope so far. I'd say American beauty yeah. Lonestar LONESTAR ADAPTATION DID A. Play Call I, did a film called breach about a true story about a a turncoat. Robert Hanssen who? Were CIA or FBI. FBI THINK! Half of my fund is doing the homework creating the character so I can't I can't call it. Work Right, but I think they were they were stretches and through rewarding right. Oh yeah, and this the the new season of.

"I know you because I've watched you in many movies, and it seems like you're one of these actors. That's very capable of yeah. You can play evil good guy funny. Guy Evil Guy a, but but it's you're just. You're just seem to be tweaking. The little things inside of yourself that like outside I guess there's a couple of characters where you you kind of fully almost physically transform like an adaptation and stuff, but I mean. How do you approach these characters? You don't I guess you don't judge them. You just take them at their humanity. No, you can't. You really can't. That's a general statement that comes out of actors. You don't judge the characters that you're working on and I would add agree with that, but. I mean I. Don't know I think I've lived a pretty full life. Yeah, not a lot of experiences, and now now I'm saying that that with more and more films as I live longer longer, I can bring more of my life experience to these characters. and And then I love I. Love going out all the out on the edge. You know and and going. Beyond. Our tried to go beyond what? I Think I'm capable of and. That can that kind of sounds bullshitting, but Mike. What would? Like to I, don't like to. Be More boring than to play yourself. Over and over and over. I, get it. Yeah, but I it seems to me like you know with. We I I definitely. Don't think you know now talking that you play yourself, but like American beauty the torment of that character. And the nature of your masculinity. And and all of that into to play the fury of that. you know. What did you use it? Do you do when when you do characterizations? Do you model yourself? After people that you know, or do you just dig within yourself? Like with that thing that guys vet, you know. He really want yeah. Well, I, you know. Early on. I might have done that I might have made substitutions. Of of stuff that I hadn't experienced yet. Yeah. I've got a you know what what else what else do you have as an actor? But. Your historical research, if it's a character that's lived, and so on and so forth are you can research the time yet. The politics what was happening religiously so and so forth? You feel yourself up with that kind of homework yeah. And then, and then you get particular about about your character in. You got you got your research? You've got. Your Life Experience. And what else do you have? Let your imagination, right? That's that's all I got. Those are my only tools. Yeah yeah, it just seems like every role or the ones at that seemed to stand out in my mind. You know in a big way you know like American beauty, and and adaptation, and you know, even he. Even watching that movie that I The Tracy let's play August osage bugassault county. Yeah, and also the even the character and irresistible that just seems to be the emotional weight of it. That you seem to be able to tap into especially. We've adaptation. You know the Ya that the the sort of heartbreaker that guy. I mean when you when you go into those places I mean. Is it hard to come out. It's not hard to come out. You know like like When when you're interviewing other actors, they say well. Do you take your character home with you right in? If I, came home with my character, my wife would kill me right. She wouldn't put up with for a minute. Right, yeah! When you're when you're living in a hotel, are Europe in Toronto or Montana Shooting Film and you go back to the hotel and motel. You got stuff to shoot the next day. Yeah, so yeah, you do. Take it home with right well. Yeah, you Kinda live in it. Because because now is the time to work during the shooting schedule is not the time to play. Now you do your work and it gets a little serious like with adaptation working That movies a crazy movie. this is bizarre Dr, I mean. When I saw the previous one John. Malkovich Oria being John Malkovich. I must have seen that you know I'm probably going on my ninth or tenth time to see it, and I think I discover something new every time. I, see it. Yeah, yeah, I mean I've watched adaptation pretty recently, but that character was show, yeah, it just had sort of an authenticity to it and spike. Jones seems like a pretty you know. He's like a comfortable guy. Like a you know. He seems like a very I've met him a few times, but he. What's it like to work with him? As Director Prettier, pretty remarkable, I mean I was living in Boston and got up early drove into new. York to do the audition. Yeah, and I'll I'll tell you. I won't name names, but I'll tell you there were some. They're airy. Recognizable Faces A. Room, yeah, and So when my time came. If you're at all familiar with the audition process you do your you. You do your idea of the character, right? NF The director likes you. then he may say. Let's do it again. make this adjustment here. Think this. Think about that, unless let's go again. So from the get go. I, told, told Spike I said. Please allow me to show you what I can do with this character I can't give you my definitive. Definitive idea of John Laroche. There's too many ways to play this guy..

"To shoot this guy to shoot the trailer. So. Rich Gay. Knows that John Wants to do. This film called Mate Juan. And, he says okay when the time comes, John Why don't you read this? Guy Chris Cooper 'cause We've already worked with them and I guess I. See gave me the gave John The okay that I was worth working. You know look. So we started the audition process with John. And I did my first audition. This coincides with. With when I went to the UK for seven months to do the Tennessee Williams play two months into being in London I got a call back John Wants to read me again with some other actresses so. I do the Sunday Matinee. At the Haymarket theatre rice. Get to the airport fly home. Enrich gay picks me up at the airport. Drives me to the audition. I do the audition I read with a couple of women. Get right back into the car. Go back to the airport. Get to UK hours before the Tuesday. seven o'clock or eight o'clock curtain. I realize I haven't slept ads. I haven't slept a wink and I damn near a damn near fainted on stage of bad feeling. So. That was that in a nutshell that's how you got the part and that and that movie I remember when that came out because I think I was in I. Think I might have been in high school, but it was such a big deal. Somehow it was such like. It. You know it was like it was. It felt it felt like almost one of the first American independent movies is known as the granddaddy of independent film. And then he had in that amazing. Look the thing I guess it was Haskell Wexler. Wexler Ler yes, like a cinema. Cinematographer Genius? And I, just I'll never forget that kind of the tone your performance and strengthens performance and will Oldham. Who is now like a strange little empire of his own? Bonnie Prince Billy. He's a musical act now but James. James Earl Jones. That's right so. Like I mean when in sales had done. What one other movie before that? He'd done. He'd rather from another planet. Caucus, secaucus seven right in Liana. Right, so, this was so. This is a little more money to it. I bet. Not that much. It's always been hard to raise money in independent film, but but just to add to. That I. Wish I knew what the budget was. But. The Watch Haskell Wexler. This master of light is director of photography, and on such a budget, such a low budget, what he was able to pull off some unbelievable is remarkable, and and like you is an actor I mean after doing all this theater and having this relationship with wind, hand, men and doing the the work and working with other. Directors you know? Entering the world, the film with John I mean what was some of the skills that you? You picked up from that? I, mean what how did that change your life or your approach to the thing? Well okay. As I say I in my head, I'm thinking okay. We're doing. We're renting the film world. Right so I'm a student. And I just play dumb. I know better right. Speed be and John was the perfect. Person To do a first film with. He set a great example of what a directors all about. He taught me. You taught me that time is money, right? And and it must realize I think. Early on. John used primarily theater theater actors. Because I think he knew they would do their homework, they would come prepared. In the one thing you don't do. Like with a playwright you don't fuck with a John Sale script. So he can justify every word of it and and. I was brought up in the theater tradition, and so it was just understood. I learned John's work word for word. and. He just broke me in gently eight like the other actors and was just just the. The most calming effect for somebody who was so excited. In. My first film. I knows I know I know that first week. I was told to settle down. Because I was so excited. And I was looking over looking over haskell shoulders shoot in asking all kinds of questions and. So, he taught me a good lesson. Many lessons well. That's good and he did like what four movies with them. I've done five. Yeah, yeah, I mean. I remember Lonestar. That was beautiful. When average we work once every five years and have been trying for the last. Three four years is to films that we would love to do. But like you said raising money as hell. It's just so hard. Yeah, even for even for him I guess for anybody. Yeah but I. I've enjoyed those movies I mean I remember city of hope and I loved I loved Lonestar. Not Pat Myself on the back, but I think that was I. Think Financially. That was John's most successful financial phil right, and then like I think that. I. Think everybody sort of had to reckon with you. When with American beauty? It seems like that was your introduction to who the fuck is this guy? I'll take that as a compliment. was going on here. Man, if guys. That was a pretty damn intense fill. It was really intense from defer second of the movie. It's intense, just the tone of it. It's like emotionally menacing and horrendously familiar so when you. I mean it seems like I feel like I..

"Anyway I would I volunteered I went into the coastguard. As a reservist is year deal. But that kind of setup all so allows you to go to college while you're in the military right. Brother helped me out in the meantime he also This is nineteen seventy. Yeah, they were working. They were breaking the ground on the chiefs and Royals football and baseball stadium. So. My brother got me a job as a carpenter's helper he. working on the stadium and a wife. I've done the stadium for about a year. And man that paid. Can you imagine that paid for two years of college?

For Cement for for cement, four's in the gopher for everything and tracked down the electricity, and up fucking number of times I got shocked and. Then just die laughing. Joke to them, but but it's that helped me. I roughed in a few houses with my brother. And then On the trip to New York where I was headed. my side job my main job. My survival job was a tool box on wheels handyman on the subway with me. To the upper east side or upper west side, and worked for these wealthy people in their apartments, doing whatever they needed. Yeah, like at your like a a handyman. Everyone needs. Everyone needs that guy. So that was great for auditions acted call my own hours and went, but did you go? Where'd you go to college to Study Acting College? University of Missouri, and was the. Was it always the intention to to be an actor? Did that sort of unfold? I knew I took every Damn Class I. could you know as English Shakespeare? All the theater classes, but he never did any acting in high school or anything. All Yeah we did this. We did like the senior musical right and we. It was It was camelot. And I got pissed off because the mayor's son. Got The play. Lancelot. So I ended up playing one of the three nights that politics. Yeah, it's always GonNa, rock. Politics Yeah, this is and it's been a through line through a lot of your roles including that last irresistible you just it's all part of the payback for that fucking kid for Lancelot and then second semester of my sophomore year at university, then I got got serious about theater, and started auditioning and doing main stage plays, and it was University of Missouri I. Think gave me a really good foundation. Ago Farther back, you know. I was still involved with theater when I was sixteen so. I really knew where I was headed. In what capacity? doing everything but acting, so wait now. Where was that? That was that was a little what they call resident? Yeah. On the Kansas Missouri Line. And it was called a barn players theater. Though you'd have, you'd have dentists and nurses and doctors plumbers, whatever these residents. Who put on shows for an audience for a paying audience? and. My friend I was like sixteen sixteen years old. My friends were getting into a little bit of petty crime ahead and it was getting kind of serious. And so I kind of wanted to separate myself from them so I offered my time. Wind up to this theater. Talk to the artistic director said I'll do anything. Just let me. Keep me out of jail. It me going here. And, of course work for free. They were happy with that so wait. For any of your friends end up in prison. Well Yeah Olya. So anyway, I said I'd do I did everything but acting hung lights ran a light board stage-managed was in the wings each night, building sets as a scene shifter. and. Then I work my way back to the shop. And built sets and got into design, so you really knew it. We knew the organic. Of the film of the theater community. Time and it's also that thing of appreciate, not you know. The actors were going to get enough glory right learn to appreciate all those people around you that that put together a project or play and respect their their efforts to you know. Yeah, and I think it's sort of fascinating to. Me about the idea of community theatre, neighborhood, theater, or the theater company. Where you know, everybody becomes this. It's almost like an organic or symbiotic family kind of thing. There's a respect, but there's a it's a living breathing sort of community. It became very very dear touching these were great. Great people will and we became. You know over a summer. Became little family. You know, so you got you got, but you weren't ready to step on the yet. Were you a a sociable person where you like nervous about it like that like? Were you one of those guys? Where where like you know once you finally got on stage were like this is where I belong, but before that you were like in out. You don't talk much. Well here I mean. How do we go back I?

Master of the craft I was I was happy to talk to him Um we did it over the This zoom or this something I don I. Don't remember what when we used, but. I need to do it over the video, so I can look at people. That's. That's that's how that's working now so look. Yesterday, they Cremated the body of my girlfriend wind Shelton. Everyday. And I. It's not like I was there, but there is sort of a finality to it. You know, but there there is something going on. I'm trying to. To get back into life.

For me to to. To lose a sense of meaning or purpose, so I I I don't know how many people. Worried I guess I. Don't know if there's a some sort of dark. Betting Pool In terms of whether night I kill myself over this I or the world. And I. Don't feel that I'm not feeling that right now. I'm completely consumed. With with sadness and Not Disbelief, but just it's almost like I'm on some other different plane with his grief, and then when I check into the world, and I realized like you know we're all grieving. Really. And we're all angry. That I'm starting to sort of reintegrate into the reality spectrum. Obviously my reality is very small and very specific. Very pain, but the bigger reality is. Something that affects all of us in his righteous and There's a fight to be fought and it's being fought. And if you would ask me a few days ago, I would have thought all this stuff is really kind of. Making me not wanna live, but now something sort of shifting it comes and goes, but it's the fragility of life man that one day you here and and the next minute. You can be gone for whatever reason. Is Real and it's profound whether you. Die Too Young of unknown disease or your murdered. I mean that's life. Gone. And it's awful. Both of those situations are awful, but obviously when you're murdered. There needs to be justice. I don't know where to. Seek Justice for. The WAAS I'm experiencing. But. I don't know I felt a little hopeful. The other day you know as I released her spirit from this realm. Through her vessel. Thinking about it. But I feel like there's something. Pushing me that there is. Some light and I don't know why would see that. I think that you know a lot of this stuff. The human spirit is. Sort of. Screaming and And and and kind of transcending and and winning something. It seems like it's being heard I believe that. Seems like people were coming together a bit. I guess what I'm saying. Is that in my grief though I am sad. I am not dark. And I feel hope. And I feel a deeper connection to life right now this moment. I do need to know why the birds are shitting all over my house. I don't know what it is. There's like I saw a bunch of bird shit in the driveway and what's up and then I looked up and there was a hawkeness air, but now on my back deck. There's this one place where birds just shitting everywhere and then over on my front patio. There's fucking bird shit everywhere it's they're targeting my house. I think I heard somewhere that it's good like it's good. Luck or something, but I've I've had enough of the look now. It's like a fucking mess of good luck if that's what it is, maybe it's an indication that things are turning around. The things are GonNa get better or that things. Are you know? I don't know. I don't know. Maybe, it's just a fucking mess and there's Burchett everywhere. This is a funny story. I was kind of wondering if I should tell, I will. A lot of people have been reaching out to me as I said I appreciate all your emails and texts in everything. I. Do I'm feeling a bit better a little more. Grounded and my heart seems to be in the right place. I did have strike battle with lack of purpose or meaning this morning in, but I got out of bed, I went laid monkey as i. told you have been doing.
