What drew you to this film, why did you want to be a part of it?
It was the directors, the Hughes Brothers, and the cast, Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman. It would’ve been pretty stupid to say no. The story was great and the character was great. It was an amazing opportunity to work with people that I respect and can learn from.

Do you and Denzel work differently?
We’re very different.

It’s one of those things that I can’t explain. Everyone works differently. I’ve yet to work with an actor who has the same way of going about their character. It has never been the same. It’s as different as two people can get.

And you shot the film in chronological order?
As much as possible.

It was done towards Denzel’s character. I think it was important for his character to have a specific progress in the film. I think, the best way to shoot a film is chronologically.

Your ensemble in the film was weird but hot in a way. What did you like about it or keep?
I kept none of it. It was so dirty they had to burn it an effigy when we wrapped production. There was nothing fake dirty about this movie. All the wind, all the dirt was real.

The film has a potential for a sequel with your going back.
This would be a very weird movie to have a sequel, let’s be honest. With the purpose of the film, I don’t foresee it happening and I haven’t heard anything. So I’m going to say no. I don’t think there should be a sequel. I think the purpose of the story ends. It’s done.
