F-Murray-Abraham-Inside-Llewyn-Davis-interview

Now playing in theaters is one of the best films of the year: Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Inside Llewyn Davis.  The story takes place in the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961, and follows singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) as he struggles with his career and strained personal relationships.  Loaded with incredible performances, an all-star cast (featuring Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John GoodmanGarrett HedlundF. Murray AbrahamAdam DriverStark Sands and Max Casella), and a fantastic soundtrack (put together by T-Bone Burnett), Inside Llewyn Davis should not be missed.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with F. Murray Abraham.  He talked about what it was like working for the Coen brothers, whether the script changed during shooting, how his process of getting ready for a role has changed during his career,  what it was like working for Wes Anderson on The Grand Budapest Hotel, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
