Michael Pitt gets down and dirty in this shot from the winter issue of VMAN magazine, on newsstands November 11th.
Here is what the 29-year-old Boardwalk Empire star had to share with the mag:
On his audition process with Martin Scorsese: “I went in and we talked and I did this scene, and he said, ‘That’s good, but you should do it angrier,’ so I did, but he said, again, ‘That’s good, but I think a bit more angry,’ so I did it again even angrier and asked, ‘So is that good?’ and he said ‘Yeah, more angry!’ So I went to the corner of the room and started screaming at the top of my lungs.”
On working with co-star Steve Buscemi: “Steve’s great. He lives in Park Slope in Brooklyn, which is not far from where I am. It’s great because we don’t have to get to know each other and we can just start working.”
On his character in Boardwalk Empire: “He’s damaged when he comes back [from World War II]. He’s hurt his leg and and he can’t really get a job and he’s seen all his peers who didn’t go away excel. So he decides to start bootlegging for money.”
