BWW interviews Dermot Mulroney about his new independent comedy The Family Tree, Abduction, and more.
PC: Is ABDUCTION going to be something special? It’s Taylor Lautner’s first big headlining role, post-TWILIGHT.
DM: That one I haven’t seen. I, literally, have a tiny part in it. It’s a key plot role, but a small part. I am looking forward to seeing it myself.
PC: Did you enjoy working on it?
DM: The day I worked with John Singleton was really exciting. It’s a big, full-scale action movie. I hope it comes out soon!
PC: You are also soon co-starring in THE GREY with Liam Neeson. You are second billed, so I am safe to assume it’s a big part?
DM: Yeah, that is a big supporting role in this gang sort of movie where we get in a plane wreck and then get chased around by a pack of wolves.
PC: Wow! Sounds thrilling.
DM: It is a killer movie! Really fun. It is gonna be a top notch action/thriller.
PC: Aaron Lazar and Denis O’Hare have both done this column, who are also both in Clint Eastwood’s J. EDGAR with you. Do you have scenes together in it with either of them?
DM: Yeah. Yeah. I worked with Denis on the same day a couple of times. Of course, they are all great actors in that movie. That is a fine company to be in. I was proud to be there.
PC: I am so glad we will get to see you two together onscreen, then.
DM: We actually are, but just for a moment – you’ll see!
PC: He is such a smart guy and such a phenomenal actor.
DM: No kidding. Fantastic. Such a great guy, too.
