Just a reminder, Burn After Reading comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray December 21st. Along with the bonus feature clips I showed you of Brad Pitt and George Clooney, here are a few more that you will get to see if you purchase the movie.
The first one features Frances McDormand, an actress I admire tremendously. She mentions that you don’t really want to keep reading a script when your character’s description includes words like “pale” and “middle-aged” but she did anyway.
The second clip is about John Malkovich; the Coen brothers said that they had never worked with him before but really wanted to do so, and I think it says a lot that they wrote the character specifically for him.
It includes a great scene with Brad Pitt, where he punches him right in the face. Awesome!
The final clip features Tilda Swinton. Tilda describes her character really well and makes you curious enough to want to watch her scenes. She made me laugh when she said that she, Frances, and Brad all got hairdos and George Clooney was upset that he didn’t get a hairdo – but that he got a “chin do”.
