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 Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver, Stark Sands, and Max Casella), and a fantastic soundtrack (put together by T-Bone Burnett), Inside Llewyn Davis should not be missed.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with Stark Sands. He talked about what it was like working for the Coen Brothers, the way he got the role, how much he brought to his character, whether he hung out on set during his off days, the success of Kinky Boots on Broadway, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
- When did he find out he’d be working with the Coen brothers?
- How much did he bring to his character or was it all on the page?
- Did he ever go to set on days off just to watch the Coen’s work?
- How much fun is he having on Broadway and the success of Kinky Boots
