Billy Bob Thornton Discusses Fargo on FX

Fargo_CL_3052_1

(PCM) Loosely based on the theme characters and humor of the 1996 film “Fargo“, FX is presenting a 10 episode all-new story beginning April 15. Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, who wrote and directed the film, are executive producers for the limited series, written by Noah Hawley.

Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative drifter who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by Martin Freeman.

With over 60 roles on the big screen, I wanted to know if there was anything that he, through his characters, surprised himself. ” Oh, gosh, when you get my age there’s not much you’re surprised about. With this character it was really, because he doesn’t have a conscience and because I’m not thinking about a back story here, it didn’t cause me to learn a whole lot about myself.”

“It did make me know that I can do that. I was capable of going in there and like erasing any sort of like human feelings that I might have about a situation. That was an interesting challenge, but it was written that way so I just tried to stick to Noah’s thing, you know, his vision. But a lot of times as an actor you’re trying to think constantly and in this case I was trying not to, so that was a little bit the opposite and so I guess I learned that I could do that.” He laughing added, “I also learned that when you get in your 50s, that 42 below zero feels much worse than when you’re in your 30s.”

The set was cold. “It was really just bone chillingly cold,” he told me, “and I have to say about that… I would work a couple of weeks or 10 days and then get to go home for five or six days and then come back. And, I’m going to L.A., right. And you go back down there and it’s 75 degrees or whatever and mild. And it just so happened that every time I was off Calgary got good weather and it warmed up.”

Fargo_CL_2509_2Not being an exceptionally big guy, we wondered how approached the role of essentially a bully. “When you weigh 135 pounds and you’re telling people who are six-four, 250 to get out of your way, how do you do that? Well, a lot of that is exactly what you said, which is in the eyes. If someone is talking to you and tells you that you ought to do something and you can tell they mean it, those are the scary people,” he went on, “And I worked in a prison years and years ago on a movie and I was told by these guys, there were all these guys with the Aryan Brotherhood and some of them had tattoos and they’re big, muscled guys and everything and this one guy told me, he said, ‘Do you see that little skinny guy over there in the corner, the one that’s not talking, just kind of sits by himself? That’s the big guy right there.’
He said, “That’s the guy you don’t want to mess with.”

“And I talked to the guy ultimately and I could tell that he meant what he said. So, those are the people you want to watch out for. And it’s like maybe I can break this guy in half, but he would hunt me down, he would crawl until his fingers were bloody on the asphalt to get me. So, those are the ones.”

There is a subtlety to the character. “I look at Malvo as a type of sort of snake charmer, you know. Once he looks at you you’re under some sort of spell.”

Regarding Noah Hawley’s script, compared to the story-telling and characters of the Coen brothers, “That’s something that he has in common with the Coen Brothers, actually. Their scripts are very tightly written and if you don’t say those words the way they’re written, it doesn’t come across as well. I’ve been largely an improvisational kind of actor most of my career, except for when I’ve worked with the Coen Brothers. Now that I’m working with Noah, I rarely change anything with Noah because it’s a very specific point of view and type of language and maybe sometimes something might sound a little formal even, even that Malvo says, maybe it’s not something that would just naturally come out of my mouth.”

“But once you plug into that, then it becomes natural to you and I respect him as a writer so much that I defer to him and I think I would say the same thing about the rest of the cast. I mean, there’s very little discussion on the set about changing things. We don’t come over to him and say, hey, instead of this, I think I’ll say this. We don’t have a lot of that around that set. And the same experience, like I said, with the Coen Brothers. You just do it because there was a reason he wrote it that way and it becomes clear to you when you see it and when you perform it.”

Bily Bob Thornton is known for portraying a likable ‘bad guy’ – is there something about that type of role that he is attracted to? “Well, actually, that’s kind of been my wheelhouse is either sort of intense characters, but who have a certain sympathetic streak and also a sense of humor. And I’ll have 10-year-olds come up to me and say, ‘Oh, Bad Santa, I just love you.’ It’s like, what? So, yeah, I don’t know what it is, but maybe it’s that Malvo senses weakness in people or stupidity or whatever. ”

“(Malvo’s) got this sort of animal instinct and he just smells people out and I think a lot of times, especially these days and times when the world is going kind of crazy, I think we’re all frustrated and want to just shake people a little bit. And so maybe through Malvo you get a chance to slap somebody around a little bit, I don’t know. Maybe that’s it.”

“But one way or the other, yeah, it is a fine balance. You’ve got to be menacing, but I look at Malvo’s sense of humor as his only recreation. I mean, it’s like for “Malvo” to mess with people the way he does, which he doesn’t have to, he could just leave or just use them for whatever he’s using them for, but he still has to mess with them some. And I think for him, that’s his recreation. It’s his only social contact and so, screwing with people for Malvo is kind of like jet skiing for most people.”

Fargo_CL_0542_2The antoginist is alwas the driving force behind a story, and Lorne Malvo is about as antagonistic as you get. What brought Malvo to life for Billy Bob? “Well, you know, usually when you’re playing a character you think a lot about their back story and that kind of thing and in this instance I didn’t want to do that because I doubt ‘Malvo’ thinks much about his past anyway, so even the character, the guy himself, probably wouldn’t think much about it.”

Regarding how the character came across in the script, ” It was so well written that I didn’t have to really do much in order to portray the character. I think what really attracted me to it was not as much that he didn’t have a conscience as he has this bizarre sense of humor where he likes to mess with people, where most criminals if they go in to rob, say, a clothing store or something they go get the money and they get out of there.”

“But “Malvo” would look at their sweater and say, why are you wearing that sweater? I mean, you work in a clothing store. Look at all those nice sweaters over there. You look like a bag person. And so, it’s just a very odd thing. It’s sort of in keeping with the tone of the Coen Brothers to have a character like that. But Noah managed to walk a tightrope with this thing and he does a great job. I mean, he captured the tone of the Coen Brothers and kept the spirit of their movie, and yet made it its own animal, which is a pretty tough job.”

In a snapshot, BBT just said that Malvo “Was so clearly drawn and I just had to kind of be there. I looked at ‘Malvo’ as a guy who is a member of the animal kingdom, you know. We don’t get mad at polar bears, they’re all white and fluffy and they do Coke commercials with them at Christmastime and stuff like that, and yet they’re one of the meanest, most ruthless predators on earth. And so, Malvo probably doesn’t think of himself that way. He just thinks of the moment and how do I get the job done?”

Best known for films, he had an interesting insight about bringing this to the small screen. “Well, the fact of the matter is we have to face this, that Baby Boomers, in particular, really have to look to television now, not only the performers and the writers and everything, but the audience. People over 40-something, they grew up in the heyday of the great movies of the 50s, 60s and 70s and we had a little drought in the 80s here, and then the early 90s through like the late 90s was a real great time and we thought it was a Renaissance. And what we didn’t realize was that it was going to be so short. We thought it would last a couple of decades. And television now, like when I was coming up it was a bad word. And now, it has a cache and actors are clamoring to go on television because it’s a place that we can do the things we were doing in movies.”

“There’s a spot that television is filling that the movie business is not, which is the medium budget studio movies, the $25 million, $30 million adult dramas or adult comedies and the higher budget independent films, the $10 million, $12 million independent films. And you can still make a great independent film, but you’re not guaranteed anybody will ever see it because nobody takes that much interest in putting it out, you know putting money into distributing it. So, they want to put 10 movie stars in a $3 million movie so they can cover their asses on the foreign sales and all that kind of stuff and there’s more freedom in television because in an independent film even or a studio film, you can do a movie about heroin smugglers, but you can’t smoke. Wait a minute, you can sell heroin, but you can’t smoke? I don’t understand that.”

“On TV you have even more creative freedom now. And I think part of that is censorship has loosened up over the years and now you have sex and violence and language and stuff on TV. So, all those things that made us not want to do television when I was coming up in the 80s are gone.”

“On TV you have even more creative freedom now. And I think part of that is censorship has loosened up over the years and now you have sex and violence and language and stuff on TV. So, all those things that made us not want to do television when I was coming up in the 80s are gone. And so there’s no reason not to and I have to face it, that’s my audience now and all the guys my age, the ones, all of us that came up together, a lot of us even born the same year, Costner and Bill Paxton and Dennis Quaid and Kevin Bacon; our audience watches television and I think The Sopranos I guess kicked it off. That’s when we all started thinking, hey, wait a minute. This is the place to be and shows like The Wire and things like that. And you can do terrific work in television now and have a lot of freedom and there are independent films that pop through every now and then and there are some good studio movies that come through every now and then. But it’s the exception rather than the rule now.”

FargoS1vertnotuneinAAnother advantage to a television mini-series is the amount of time a character can be developed.”It felt like doing a 10-hour independent film. That’s very appealing. I’ve been accused many times as a writer/director of my pace is too leisurely and it’s too long and stuff like that. Here’s a chance to do that kind of thing and you’ve got 10 hours to do it in. Actually, it feels great and there’s great appeal in that for actors, writers and maybe not so much directors because the directing world in television is more, those guys just come in and do a couple of episodes and they’re gone.”

“But for the creator or writer it’s a really great thing to be able to develop characters and develop stories. We would all like to make at least a three-hour movie, but here you get a chance to do a 10-hour. But also, this doesn’t mean that I’m giving up doing movies. So, I can do this, do 10 episodes and it’s over and then still do two movies that year. It’s very appealing in that sense and I’m sure that came into play with McConaughey and Woody when they did True Detective. It’s a way to do both. If you came up as a film actor you don’t have to give it up. You can do great work in television and then on the occasion that you get a movie that you really love you can still do it.”

“I had no desire to get involved in a TV series that was going to last six or seven years. I’m not saying I wouldn’t, but that wasn’t really what I was looking for. When I was offered this, it seemed perfect to me. So, there’s a great appeal in it and I think you’ll see more and more of it. I’m even thinking that way now. It’s like some of these movies that I can’t get made, like if I walked in a studio and pitched this movie that I want to do, they laugh you out of the room. It’s like, are you kidding me? You can’t sell bubble gum and toys with that. And I’m thinking, well, you know what, maybe there’s a way to do this movie as a three-hour, or not three-hour, but a three part thing like, for instance, Costner did with the Hatfields & McCoys.”

Scarlett Johanssen Gets Her Black Widow on in ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’

captainamerica_chrisevans_scarlettjohanssen_marvel(PCM) Men still greatly outnumber women when it comes to action heroes, but in “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” even though it stars Chris Evans as the Captain, Scarlett Johanssen gets her fair share of the action playing Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.

The movie begins with Steve Rogers (Evans) living quietly in Washington, D.C., trying to get in tune with the modern world, as well as find a friend or two, because he’s lost everyone and everything that he previously knew as the world passed him by while he was in limbo in his frozen state. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. To save the planet, Captain America joins forces with the Black Widow and a new ally, the Falcon (Anthony Mackie), against a formidable enemy: the Winter Soldier.

At a press conference for “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” in theaters on Friday, Johanssen spoke about the personal side of Natasha, being a role model, and her future as an actress.

This is a film about not knowing who you can trust. In your life, what trust issues do you have?

I trust no one!  [she jokes] I don’t think people have to prove themselves for me to trust them. I think I am mostly trusting by nature. I guess I wait for people to prove me wrong and then I don’t trust them and they would never get [the trust] back. Once I don’t trust you, you are out of the circle.

Can you talk about playing Natasha and how she is different in this film than “The captainamerica_scarlett_johanssen_marvelAvengers”?

Other than being in physical therapy for the rest of my life … I think this is the first time we have really gotten to see Natasha. There was a little bit of her in “The Avengers” and we saw a little bit of her backstory and you will see more of that in “Avengers 2.” But in this, you really get to see Natasha a person who gets up, gets ready for work in the morning and has a life outside her job. When she’s out of her suit, she’s a woman and she has her own reality outside of it. Although, who knows how far that structure is?

It is  not until a series of circumstances, as the plot unfolds, that we find both Steve and Natasha questioning their own identity, realizing that they were pretty strong people who had their beliefs and their twisted morals — maybe the Widow more than Caps — but at the end of it, they actually realize, “I’ve been this hired hand for my entire professional career and young adult life, who am I? What do I want and what do I need from someone?” Both of these characters are left with kind of a cliffhanger at the end because they are just cresting the wave of having this huge moment of self discovery and, hopefully, we’ll be able to track where that goes in the next installments.

You are such a strong character in the movie, what do you think about being a role model for girls?

I think Natasha is a bit of a reluctant superhero. She doesn’t really have this strong, golden, moral compass. Let’s not forget, she started out her career as essentially a mercenary. I don’t know if that makes her role-model material, but in some ways, I will say, one of the things that is attractive to me about the character is she uses her feminine wiles as part of her job, but she doesn’t rely on her sexuality or her physical appeal to get the job done. She is extremely smart, she thinks on her feet, she is a leader, and, she has a lot of foresight. Those are all qualities that I think it is wonderful to celebrate for young women.  Of course, it is really rad for me to have my friends’ kids look up to that character, dress like her on Halloween, and play with the boys and be rough. I always say the Widow always wins — and it’s true. It’s a nice sentiment.

How did you prepare for the role?

I had just come off of doing a Broadway run, which is pretty much the most physically challenging thing you can do. I felt if anything was going to prepare me to have stamina, it was that. So, everything seemed like a piece of cake after treading the boards for that long. I think I was in pretty solid shape from that run.

Then it is just maintaining it. Get up at 5, go to the gym — all of that stuff that is horrible and not glamorous at all. I trained like a dude and ate a bunch of lettuce and whatever. Nothing fancy.

captainamerican_scarlettjohanssen_marvelIs this a fun character for you to come back to?

It is an interesting challenge to come back to this character. I have the good fortune to play a character who is evolving with each installment that you see her in, so going in to play this character, I have to understand who this character is, where she comes from, and have this rich backstory. I think the exciting thing is scraping away a little part of that each time to reveal a small part of the bigger picture of her. It is a very complex character, which is wonderful for me because over the period of time I’ve  played her, I’ve also grown — it’s six years — as you do in your career and your life, so I feel the character’s story is more enriched as my own experiences are.

What do you  think will happen for the future of your career when you are done playing action roles and femme fatales?

I don’t know. I have been in the industry for 20 years so the roles that become available to me change. As I grow older, as I transition through life, I am sure that will continue. You hope to have a career that has longevity and reflects the experiences you’ve had. It is what we all hope for — men and women alike.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, opens in theaters on Friday, April 4.
