(He was also nominated for a Best Actor Golden Globe.) The success of his performance may rest in part to what Mortensen praises as an actor's secret weapon, the cultivation of a more sensitive, or feminine, side.So what was the first thing you auditioned for as an actor?' They go, ' Well, you can come in and audition if you like...bring two pieces.' And I said, ' Two pieces of what? I had a box of Good & Plenty, and I shook it in her ear, and she turns around, and I try to pick her up, and she runs out of the theater, crying, horrified, and [laughter] I'm sitting there in my sailor whites going, ' Oh, well. I get on the set and Woody Allen's got his arm around the young actor that I'm supposed to play the scene with, and he's whispering stuff in his ear, and the actor's nodding and smiling. ' He goes, ' You just react.' The actor comes strolling over to me with a big smile on his face, and he goes, ' So what's it like to work with for Cecil B. ' And I said, ' I don't know, it was a long day. He told my agent the next day he really liked it, and so that, like the other movie, I told my family, ' Yeah, the movie's coming.' And they all went, and of course, just like the other one, I wasn't even in the credits, so…that was my start, and there were many, many experiences like that, many, many auditions that I got very close to getting the part, but didn't. It must have meant something in terms of actor to actor, no? I don't think there's anyone who's done three movies with him. is the first one I did with him and he just offered me the part and I really hit it off with him.' ' Two monologues.' I had no idea really what they were looking for, so I think I cobbled together something from an Isak Dinesen short story and then I sang an Irish song. ' And they said, ' There is no play, but you can come back, and you can go to class,' so that's how I started. Some, some you win, some you lose,' but when I saw the movie, she was sitting by herself, so I guess they didn't like it. And then Woody goes, ' Okay, let's, um, let's roll one. It's like you're up on this sort of big post and you have your arms like that, and I had this itchy beard, and I was in this diaper, and these like Roman soldiers were poking me with a stick, and I don't know what the hell I was doing, and anyway, it was a long day, but I guess it was all right.' Like the actor's so stupid, he doesn't even know he's playing Jesus. I learned by making mistakes, which is probably the best way. I think we have a similar sense of humor and a similar way of researching a story that's for the movies and we're able to communicate with very few words, and that's helpful. Matt Ross wrote the script without anybody in mind.There's a lot of directors that I think aren't particularly interested in actors or their process, but I'm, I'm fascinated by the different ways that actors approach their work.To that end, is there a particular actor that made you wanna be an actor?If I'd read and for whatever reason had not been available, I still would've been anxious to see the movie.It's a complete artistic universe, telling stories in the movies and I like actors.
For as masculine as he was, he had a feminine side that came out in most of his roles... [Laughter] I think as an actor you're gonna do better if you don't go through life with a hand tied behind your back on any level, you know? He's, he's an actor, and he knows that you can't always have the actor that you might want.Schedules sometimes don't allow that, or maybe the actor that you've written a role for just doesn't like the role.In fact, they were so good that I thought, ' Well, I better stop worrying about them and mind my own business and make sure I'm at, at their level,' you know?And then before starting, we had a couple of weeks where we practiced all the things that we'd have to do as a team—rock climbing and martial arts, played a lot of music together, a lot of improvising and jamming musically, and I had to learn to play the bagpipes.
