“He’s completely fearless as an actor. There’s a real trap with some actors where they play so oddball they’re not accessible. But Sam finds a way home, every time. He’s got this vulnerability that allows the audience in. And you can’t wait for him to come on the screen again because you just don’t know what’s going to happen. There’s that unpredictability. Every time he’s on screen in Seven Psychopaths he lights it up. You can’t teach that.” - actor Jeremy Renner on friend Sam Rockwell.
Sam Rockwell and I were filming a movie in London when we found out auditions were being held nearby for the London company of the hit musical Hamilton! Knowing this was our only shot to audition for one our favorite musicals, we put ourselves on tape with SPOT ON, PERFECT LONDON ACCENTS to fool the director. We have yet to hear back. FYC.
