The most boring scenes are the scenes where a character is alone.
The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.
Some scenes you juggle two balls, some scenes you juggle three balls, some scenes you can juggle five balls. The key is always to speak in your own voice. Speak the truth. That's Acting 101. Then you start putting layers on top of that.
I write scenes - often quite long scenes - mainly because I still get seduced into writing six lines where one and a half will do.
Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award.
Poop humor is fun. If you do the toilet scenes well and commit to them, they can be really, really powerful.
If it's a modern-day story dealing with certain ethnic groups, I think I could open up certain scenes for improvisation, while staying within the structure of the script.
I think when you're just counting on your voice, you actually need double the energy. I find myself acting out the scenes and being very physical while I'm recording because I think you can tell when someone is just sitting on a stool.
It comes down to something really simple: Can I visualize myself playing those scenes? If that happens, then I know that I will probably end up doing it.
I'm involved in some action scenes, so they'll train me for that. I'll be working with my acting coach to prepare for my character.
Mississippi Mermaid was a very special experience because we only had the dialogues for the scenes we were shooting the night before.

Young actors often don't think of the consequences of doing nudity or sex scenes. They want the role so badly that they agree to be exploited, and then end up embarrassing family, friends, and even strangers.

My job is designing shoes. It's work that happens behind the scenes, as they say, and that suits me just fine because in general I am a shy person. But sometimes I have these extroverted outbursts.
