I have been in movies and worked on several movie sets as a hair designer. It just never gets old seeing my name in the credits of the film. Had a blast working on this film with Sam Rockwell, Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Jemaine Clement, and Leslie Bibb.
The Cast of Don Verdean on Working With the Creators of Napoleon Dynamite
One of the very best casts at this year’s Sundance Film Festival belongs to Don Verdean, the new movie from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite (husband-and-wife team Jared and Jerusha Hess), which stars Sam Rockwell, Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Jemaine Clement, and Leslie Bibb.
We sat down with the group of actors to discuss the inspirations for their characters (Rockwell describes his title character as “If Andy Dick and Indiana Jones had a baby”), the experience of making a movie with Mormons (the movie was shot in Utah), and what it was like to do comedy without relying on going blue. The resulting conversation was a little less family-friendly than the movie.
