The famed creator and director of The Sopranos, David Chase, has made his debut as a feature film director (and writer) with the ode to rock ‘n’ roll, Not Fade Away.  Douglas (John Magaro) catches a lucky break when Gene Gaunt (Jack Huston) invites him to join their cover band in 1960’s New Jersey. Though his father (James Gandolfini) doesn’t understand his son’s devotion to music, Douglas immerses himself in the band and in high school dream-girl turned muse Grace Deitz (Bella Heathcote). The film is an homage to rock’n’roll, to music, and to the universal experience of realizing you may not be the next Rolling Stones after all.  For more on the film, here’s 20 images, the trailer and Matt’s review.

At the NYC press day for Not Fade Away, I was able to speak to the three young stars – Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and John Magaro – about their preparation for these music-intensive roles, their favorite scenes to shoot, some deleted scenes and what’s coming up next.  Hit the jump to watch.

Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote & John Magaro:

  • How did they prepare for the roles
  • What was their favorite scene to shoot
  • What’s next for the three of them
  • Who were their inspirations both actors and musicians
  • Deleted scenes talk
