VIDEO: The ‘Culture Show’: Extra From the Show (limo interview)Cast Interview David Cronenberg Director Interview Robert Pattinson Video
Some additional footage of the interview in the limo that Pattinson and Cronenberg did with Mark Kermode of The ‘Culture Show’.
Pattinson was asked if he knew why Cronenberg selected him for the film- he said he didn’t that he had never even met him. He talks of how he hopes any power he has from doing a franchise he can channel into that [supporting the type of films someone like Cronenberg makes] “otherwise there’s going to be a stranglehold in every single cinema with just movies that cost $200 million.” He notes as an actor it’s frustrating because there’s superhero roles and then nothing else, or things people won’t go see.
Cronenberg repeats what we’ve heard before about why he chose Rob for the role, but adds “he was an actor in the real sense!”
