The movie stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin in a career-making performance in the lead role of Llewelyn.
I recently sat down with Brolin to discuss the movie. I was doing a movie called directed by Robert Rodriguez, and I asked Robert if he minded putting me on tape to send to the Coen brothers.
I read it for the literary amazing piece of art it is.
Months are not good-say days.” So it wasn’t until I actually got close to the brothers that the story would slowly leak and become more of what it really was.
It was about a month into shooting when Ethan finally said, “What happened to the collarbone? You are in the movie at this point, we can’t replace you now-so what happened?
Was that something you came up with or was it the Coen brothers?
We were doing the scene and I didn’t like how it was going, and this wasn’t something that happened a lot on the set.
I was doing Sam Shepard’s True West in New York, and Sam said I had to read this book.
I thought it was amazing and I read it without thinking what part I could play.
The biggest compliment I got from Ethan was a shrug, and I thought that meant, “You’re not getting it.” Later, I found out, once I got to know them better, that it meant I was perfect.
We got what we needed; if you want another one let me know, otherwise let’s move on.
The old guys (Japanese: オヤジたち old guys) are a quintet of non-player characters that appear in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
They are all located in the Mauville City Pokémon Center (later Mauville Hills in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), though only one will be present at a time.
It’s a very quiet set, but it’s one of the funnest sets.
