Opening this weekend is the really fun movie Red. Featuring an all-star cast that’s more impressive than The Expendables, Red stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss, Julian McMahon, Brian Cox, and Ernest Borgnine. Based on the graphic novel Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous), the movie is about a group of retired black ops agents that get back together to try and figure out why some former agents are getting killed.
While almost the entire cast is a retired C.I.A. agent, Mary-Louise Parker plays the sort of love interest of Bruce Willis. I say sort of…because she works at the agency that mails Willis his government checks and at the beginning of the film they’ve never met. Anyway, I was recently in NYC for the press junket and I was able to sit down with Miss Parker. During the interview we talked about whether or not she knew Red would be such a fun movie, acting on TV versus movies, what movie making is really like, and I asked how much longer could Weeds last. Hit the jump to see what she had to say:
Finally, you can check out some clips from Red here.
