Acting Game
On The Set Of
David O. Russell's upcoming "Amsterdam" has a stacked cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, Michael Shannon, Mike Myers, and many more set to appear. In a recent press junket interview, Myers talked about how rewarding, yet intimidating, it was working with Shannon in particular.
Shannon, star of such films as "8 Mile" and "Pearl Harbor," is an extremely accomplished actor in a very different way than a comedic actor like Myers. For Myers, the opportunity to share scenes with an actor as accomplished as Shannon and the rest of the cast was an experience so great that, at times, he was put off his game.
Myers shared, "This guy [nods to Michael Shannon] is amazing, I would just watch him and then I would forget that it was my turn to talk next because, like, 'Jesus he's good, holy crap.' They're all just spectacular." The movie will premiere in theaters on October 7th, and it will be interesting to see how a unique addition like Myers will change the whole dynamic.
