Rob talks about getting inspiration from the serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer for Eric’s character.
David Cronenberg talks to Francine Stock from ‘The Film Programme’ about ‘Cosmopolis’, casting Rob & his fans at 3:50.
ETA another audio interview added - David talks about Rob in Cosmopolis with France Inter at 11:20 and 28:58. Listen to it HERE
11:12 to 12:55: Is it true, David Cronenberg, that during the shooting of Cosmopolis, you were saying to Robert Pattinson – who’s the lead: “If you understand anything to what we’re doing, we’re lost.”
at 28:24 to 28:58 David: Both DeLillo and Burroughs have wonderful, very funny, very strange, very bizarre dilaogue, and wonderful to hear actors speak. So I’m sure I have absorbed Burroughs from a very early age. The rythym of their speech is very american, I’m Canadian and so when I hear american speech from DeLillo, from Burroughs it’s foreign to me, it’s foreign dialogue. Canadians don’t speak that way. So just as Robert Pattinson, who is English, has to do an American accent when he is in the movie, I too as a writer and a director, I am actually doing an american accent.
Some quotes (from Cosmopolisfilm)
- Host: What were you thinking when you cast Rob? David: You’re looking for a great actor. It’s a very difficult role with a lot of dialogue, Quite funny too. You need an actor that gets all of that.
- Host: Did you know he could do it? David: I had seen him in Little Ashes where he plays a young Salvidor Dali, an extreme, difficult Spanish movie. This is a guy who’s not afraid to do something really challenging and difficult. He’s not afraid to play an unsympathetic role. Until you do the movie, you don’t know the breadth of it and I think he gives a fantastically subtle and beautifully modulated performance.
