You guys just shot some of "Avengers" in our fair city. The fans came out, the pictures hit the internet. Clearly you're a rock star now, the world's your stadium... how does that level of success change the equation?
It's been okay. I mean, it's crazy when you're filming, during the days we were shooting it was a hassle getting to and from places, but when the camera stops rolling my life kinda goes back to being relatively normal. Get a few people approaching me at restaurants, take a few pictures here and there. Nobody's waiting outside my apartment, no one's calling my mom's house.
It's interesting that you and Chris Hemsworth had the luxury of knowing you were gonna get another shot even if the solo films tanked.
Yeah, but the worry was what if "Iron Man" did its job and then "Thor" came out and did its job and all I kept thinking was, "Man, what if I'm the weak link in this chain? What if 'Captain America' bombs." Obviously I'm in "The Avengers" now, they can't boot me, but still, you don't want to be the one that's not carrying the load.
Another movie that people really loved was "Scott Pilgrim."
Yeah, me too, man! I can't believe more people didn't see it, what-the-f**k? It was such a good movie. The first time I saw it I was like, "this is my favorite movie." I love every second of that movie, and was so bummed more people didn't go see it.
Now it's on permanent midnight rotation at the New Beverly in LA, once a month.
Oh really? I didn't know that. No kidding.
Would you like to do another really far-out, stylized performance like that?
I'd love to do anything else with Edgar Wright. If Edgar Wright asked me to do anything, ANYTHING I'll do it. That was like one of the most fun, "Let's just go somewhere nuts." But if you're gonna go somewhere nuts you need a director you trust, because if you're going crazy you're handing the performance over. You're like, "Alright, I'm gonna put some wild sh*t down here, and then you're gonna cut and paste whatever performance you want in the editing room." Editing can change everything. If you're gonna swing for the fences it's a much more comforting feeling knowing you have a good director.
