Scott Speedman Exclusive Video Interview BARNEY’S VERSION; Plus Updates on THE VOW and Mary Harron’s THE MOTH DIARIES

     January 11, 2011

Opening this weekend, in limited release, is a great movie called Barney’s Version.  Based on Mordecai Richler’s prize-winning comic novel, the movie is about four decades, two continents, and the three wives of Barney Panofsky (played to perfection by Paul Giamatti).  Without saying too much, the film follows Barney’s long and colorful life and over the course of two hours, we really feel like we’ve spent a lifetime with him.  In a good way.  And while I singled out Giamatti, Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver, Rachelle Lefevre, Dustin Hoffman and Scott Speedman are all fantastic. For more on the film, watch the trailer here.

Anyway, the other day I sat down with Scott Speedman and we talked about how he got involved in the project and he also told me some fun stories about casting and filming in Rome.  In addition, he gave me updates on who he plays in The Vow (which stars  Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum) and The Moth Diaries – which is directed by Mary Harron.
