With Margot, you need someone who’s both a movie star and a recent arrival. I wanted someone who mirrored her character’s journey a little bit and was completely fearless.”

I have a dream of having someone we don’t know take on that role, and it’s new to people, but it’s really hard to do. , to find a real new guy who can go up against Margot and Brad, people like that.
