Whenever I bring up the film with people, they always have something very specific to say about him [James Dean], whether it’s something that’s true or something that’s been created, because of his whole myth and how iconic he’s become. He’s a person that has made such a big impact in so many people’s lives, and he’s also my favorite actor.

So there’s definitely a responsibility to honor him, and honor who he really was, and try to dig the truth out of all the stories that have been told about him and all the stories that have been made up. What’s true, and what’s not. I think for every fact you can find about James Dean, you can find a fact that’s the complete opposite. Everybody has a different story, and ultimately it’s been a really interesting process of digging through everything and trying to figure out who he really is.
