Emile ‘Davenport’ Hirsch Humps Nylon

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.
