  • A quote from an interview with Casey Affleck at Coming Soon:

    Q - Do you enjoy best friend roles or kind of supporting actor roles?
    A - For this movie I enjoyed the character it was obviously someone that I could relate to so that was why I took it. In general? I started out playing smaller roles, and there is a difference between smaller roles and bigger roles. In smaller roles you get to have a different acting style in my opinion, because at the time if you are a lead you have time to slowly build that character. If you are only in the film for a few scenes you have to give everything about your character really quickly. I feel very lucky to be able to have those opportunities. I chose the films by the character not the size of the part. You know Matt Damon could chose to do leading roles all the time but he will chose a small part because it is interesting and I think that says a lot about him.
