Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill centers on Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke), a former Air Force pilot who now operates drones stateside. As one might expect, his wife Molly (January Jones) loves that he’s safe and sound in an air conditioned bunker and gets to come home to her and the kids every night, but Tom’s still eager to get back in the air.
With Good Kill currently in select theaters and hitting VOD on May 22nd, I got the chance to talk to Jones about Molly and Tom’s relationship and how she prepared for the role. You can catch that and what Jones had to say about her worst job prior to acting in the video interview below. In case you missed it, click here for my interview Niccol, here for the one with Zoe Kravitz and here to check out what the cast had to say about the unusual military lingo featured in the film.
- The worst job Jones had before she started acting.
- On the use of unusual military lingo and the side effects of working this type of job.
- Why she checked out PTSD chatrooms rather than approaching military wives to prep for the film.
- On her character’s relationship with Ethan Hawke’s.
