Posted on Thursday, July 8th, 2021 by Jack Giroux
What a time for David Dastmalchian. For starters, we’ll soon see him as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad. What was once an obscure comic book character may soon be, thanks to James Gunn and the actor, a character we won’t soon forget. Dastmalchian is also in the adaptation of one of the most celebrated science fiction novels of all time, Dune. It’s the actor’s third collaboration with filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who previously cast him in Prisoners and Blade Runner 2049.
Plus, the actor recently finished writing a script for a horror movie he sounds jazzed about. Genre is his jam, having grownup with horror movies and comic books. He even wrote a Dark Horse Comic, Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter, which was a dream come true for him. Dastmalchian is making big impressions on the screen, but he’s also making them on the page with two personal dramas he wrote: All Creatures Here Below and Animals.
Recently, the actor talked to us about the year he’s having, his past roles, how David Lynch changed his life, and one suggestion he has for anyone after they read this interview.
