John Travolta On Working with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst in 'The Fanatic': 'He Blew My Mind'

John Travolta is dapper in a suit as he poses for portrait at his SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversation for his latest film The Fanatic held at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Screening Room on Wednesday (August 21) in Los Angeles.

The 65-year-old actor was joined at the event by co-stars Devon Sawa and Ana Golija, as well as the film’s writer-director Fred Durst, who is best known for being the frontman of Limp Bizkit.

“I didn’t know Fred could write this well, I didn’t know he could direct as well, and he blew my mind,” John told 11 Alive. “He knew this guy Moose that’s actually loosely based on a real guy and he wrote it with me in mind. He just knew I could portray this guy.”

John Travolta said that Fred would ask him questions about his character to prep him for his role behind the scenes.

“He would ask me questions about Moose. ‘How are you doing today, Moose? Did you run into anybody? What do you think of so-and-so?’ And he would ask me two or three minutes of improvisation and I feel it and, bam, we start filming,” John explained.
