Speed Racer star Emile Hirsch graces the cover and pages of Nylon Guys to promote his role as activist Cleve Jones in director Gus Van Sant’s film – Milk.
On Director Peter Care’s The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys: I had no idea how to play the part. I didn’t understand the dialogue. I didn’t understand the character. But the casting director really believed in me. It’s funny because people now say, ‘That’s such a natural performance’, but in my mind that performance is the one most influenced by other actors.
On Picking Projects: I give a f—, but I don’t give that much of a f—. I’m still going to throw in some goofy s—. I don’t want to get too precious.
On Director Gus Van Sant’s Biofilm – Milk: I just had such a wonderful time. It’s such a great ensemble. Speed Racer was such a highly controlled performance environment that I found, honestly, a little frustrating at times just because it’s so hard when you’re on the green screen and it’s all about, ‘Bat this eyelash a little bit here.’ On Milk, it was just a free-for-all and we were all going nuts.
