Justin Theroux Praises 'Maniac' Director Cary Fukunaga: 'I Just Like Being On Set with Him'

Justin Theroux gives a smirk while joining director Cary Fukunaga and creator and writer Patrick Somerville onstage at a special screening of their Netflix series Maniac held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (November 1) in Hollywood.

“What was so thrilling about Maniac for me was that I started looking at some of the concept art and the tone, and once Cary started explaining some of the overall tone of it, I was like, ‘Oh, we can go a bunch of different directions. We can try a bunch of different things and see what sticks’,” the 47-year-old actor recently expressed (via IndieWire).

“He was very collaborative like that. He’s not one of those directors that’s trying to get you to sing in exactly the same key that he wants you to sing in,” Justin continued. “He’s sort of like, ‘let’s find our own notes and get a little jazzy with it’.”

“I just like being on set with him,” Justin added. “You know what I mean? That’s oftentimes 40 percent of what makes you want to go to a set. I would trust that he would make it fantastic.”
