Noah Emmerich Discusses His Career, Philanthropy And Role In ‘Jane Got A Gun’

Noah Emmerich Discusses His Career, Philanthropy And Role In ‘Jane Got A Gun’

Noah Emmerich

Noah Emmerich has become a familiar face over the past two decades, starring alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names. With each new project, he cultivates an incredible body of work while also honing his craft. His continuing success led him to his current role as the antagonist on one of the most critically acclaimed TV dramas of the decade, FX’s “The Americans.” His latest project for the big screen, “Jane Got A Gun,” pairs him with Academy Award© winner Natalie Portman (“Black Swan,” “Star Wars Episodes I-III,” “The Professional”), Joel Edgerton (“Black Mass,” “The Gift,” “The Great Gatsby”), Ewan McGregor (“August: Osage County,” “The Island”), Rodrigo Santoro (“Focus,” “300: Rise of an Empire”) and Boyd Holbrook (“Gone Girl,” “Run All Night”).

The film centers around Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman), who built a life on the rugged western plains with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) and young daughter. When Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after a run-in with the relentless John Bishop (Ewan McGregor) and his gang, she knows they will not stop until her family is dead. In desperation, Jane seeks help from Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton), a man from her past. Haunted by old memories, Jane’s past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.

Jason Price recently caught up with Noah Emmerich to discuss his journey as an actor, his latest project, “Jane Got A Gun,” and where the future might take him.

You are such a familiar face to audiences on television and in film. What intrigued you about acting early and ultimately made you pursue it as a career?

Noah Emmerich

Noah Emmerich

That is a good question. You know, it wasn’t something I was pursuing since childhood. A lot of actors get the bug early on and know that is what they want to do but I was not headed in that direction at all. I was studying history as an undergraduate and I thought I was headed to law school. On a lark, I got a role in the commencement show of my college and did a role in “Anything Goes.” I was a singer. I had been involved in the arts but more as a musician than an actor. My friend was directing the play and he needed a bass voice because there weren’t that many basses. I said, “That is crazy! I am not an actor.” He said, “Why don’t you just try it.” I did and I had the greatest time. It was such a thrilling time and it felt like I had tapped into something I had, perhaps, wanted to do for awhile but hadn’t realized it or let myself acknowledge it. It was really sort of a revolution from my perspective on what the future held. I thought, “I definitely want to do more of this. I don’t know when that is possible in law school. Maybe I will put things on hold for awhile and just try this out.” I didn’t know it was going to lead to a career, a year or six months but I knew I definitely wanted to do more of it. It snowballed and continued on in that manner. I just kept doing it and kept wanting to do more of it. At some point I realized I really wanted to do it professionally. After having done a bunch of region theater, Summer Stock and small productions around the country, I kind of resolved and accepted that this is what I wanted to do on some level. I don’t know how long I want to do it for but so far I still want to do it!

It seems to be working out pretty well so far!

Yeah, I feel really, really lucky!

Was there anyone behind the scenes giving you the push you needed? Perhaps a mentor who had a big influence on you?

There have been many along the way. I feel like on almost every job I do, on some level, I find inspiration and example. One of my earliest was when I took a two-year Meisner acting technique class with a man named Ron Stetson. He teaches in New York City at the Neighborhood Playhouse. He really opened up the world of the craft and technique of acting to me. I still hold him in my heart as I travel through the business, thinking about the process and the craft. He was my first and maybe most powerful mentor from the craft point of view. Along the way, you meet directors, actors, writers and producers and they all have great stories and experiences to share. I have been really fortunate in working with many great people. Another one, one of the most inspirational directors I have worked with, was Peter Weir, who directed “The Truman Show.” He is unequivocally one of the great directors of our time, in addition to being an incredible man. He was quite inspirational to me, both as an actor and as an aspiring director.

We are together today to talk about one of your latest projects. How did you get involved with “Jane Got A Gun” and what attracted you to the role?

'Jane Got A Gun'

‘Jane Got A Gun’

I got involved because my close friend and colleague, Gavin O’Connor, came on as a director at the last minute to take the reigns of the film from someone else. He called me and said, “Hey, I am just jumping into this project in Santa Fe. It would be great if you could come down here and be a part of it.” That alone was enough to interest me, in a way. This is the fifth film I have made with him. As I mentioned, he is one of my closest friends, so working with him is always a great experience. I was just wrapping up the first season of “The Americans” when this call came in. I thought I was depleted, tired and needed a break but Gavin called and there it was. He needed me to get to Santa Fe within a matter of days. I read the script and thought it was really great. I thought, “I have never done a western and it is something I have been wanting to do. What a great cast!” I get to reunite with Natalie [Portman], who I worked with at the very beginning of my career in the movie “Beautiful Girls.” Everything about the project seemed irresistibly alluring, so I jumped on a plane and got to Santa Fe to start learning how to ride horses!

For what I heard about Gavin, he is known as an actor’s director. What does he bring to the table in that capacity?

Gavin is incredibly committed, passionate and authentic. He is really interested in finding the truth of the character, the truth of the context, the truth of the scene and the deeper, most underlying meanings of what we are doing. He is really in search of the more profound, deep meanings of the art, script and scenes. As a storyteller, I feel like it is visceral and you can feel that in his films. There is an authenticity and a passion that is rare and much appreciated. It is always a great process with Gavin and he is very open, available, communicative and collaborative. It just makes the whole thing a truly wonderful experience.

What did you bring to this character that wasn’t on the written page?

Everything, I guess! [laughs] In some ways, on this particular character, nothing was on the written page. It was a very underwritten character, as he is mostly lying there in bed and dying for most of the movie. That was the great challenge of this role, to see if there were beats, feelings and emotions happening that we could communicate without much movement because the character is paralyzed and can’t really move. All he has is his face and his eyes, along with the camera work to show different layers and levels of feeling, emotion and reality. That was the exciting challenge of this role, the question of how much can you do within that constricted and limited context. I can’t speak for how it impacted the audience but hopefully we managed to have more colors there in the goings on than was apparent on the page.

Be it this role or any other, is there a process you undergo when taking on a new character?

Yeah, it is an ambiguous process and it is kind of hard to quantify or clarify but it is a journey into understanding a human being, what makes him tick, what matters, what is going on and what his life is. That is the great mystery and magical journey that actors take into their characters.

I know this film was a difficult production for everyone involved. What was it about this project that made everyone band together to keep it on the rails?

I think Gavin, as our leader, is certainly primary. Adversity breeds intimacy in a way. When we were there, there were a lot of hurdles and a lot of things went wrong but everyone was passionate and committed to getting the film completed and having it come out as strong as possible. It was a beautiful place to shoot a movie and an incredible cast and crew. Everyone involved was putting everything they had into it. It was a very bonding, invigorating and challenging journey, that I think we are all grateful that we took.

I am sure you learn something on each project you work on. What did you walk away with after shooting this film?

Yeah! Never spend too much time at the backend of a horse! [laughs]

Words to live by, I’m sure! [laughs] Looking back at your career, how have you most evolved as an actor?

Gosh, I don’t know. Hopefully, I have just gotten better but I will leave that to you to judge! [laughs] Hopefully, I have gotten better at my work and deeper, richer and more able to convey the full humanity of the character.

Noah Emmerich

Noah Emmerich

You played an amazing range of diverse characters on stage, in film and on television. Is there something you are still anxious to tackle?

It’s funny, I was just talking about this. I hope to do more comedies. I really love doing comedies and I have very rare chances to be a participant in those, so I hope to be able to expand that genre in my own work. I love making and watching comedies. I think they are something that is evermore needed in the world today, so hopefully I can be more involved with making people laugh.

You can serve as a great inspiration to many young actors. What is the best lesson we can take away from your journey?

I would say the most important ingredient for an actor in this world is perseverance. Believe in your work, continue to hone and craft your work and just keep working. Don’t get too distracted by the career of it all. The career will sort itself out and the jobs will come or they won’t. All you can do is work inside your own craft, your own commitments and believe in what you are doing as a storyteller. Let the knocks slide off and let the rejections wash over you. Let the adversity not deter you from your own passion and commitment to being part of the storytelling world that we are all about.

One last question for you today, Noah. I always like to offer an opportunity to help shine a light on any causes you may lend your support to?

That is very nice. Right now, I am working with a group called Dream Yard (www.dreamyard.com). It is an arts education program in New York City. They recently got their own charter school up in The Bronx. It is all about arts education and early childhood and late childhood development. I think that is something we need to not lose sight of in this country — the value and impact that arts education can have on our youth. I am very, very involved with helping to make sure that stays an integral part of our educational and cultural value system.

Thank you so much for your time today, Noah. Keep up the great work! You are truly a pleasure to watch on screen!

Thanks so much, Jason!

Director David Mackenzie Discuss His Latest Film ‘Perfect Sense’ And More!

Director David Mackenzie Discuss His Latest Film ‘Perfect Sense’ And More!

Director David Mackenzie has spent the last decade crafting an amazing career in cinema. His works has captured the minds of film fans and critics alike. His latest film, “Perfect Sense” no exception. In the film, Eva Green plays a bright, young scientist named Susan who is a scientist searching for answers to important questions. So important that she has given up on other things, including love – until she meets Michael (Ewan McGregor), a talented chef. Suddenly everything starts to change. While Susan and Michael are experiencing new and unforeseen depths of feeling, all around the world people are also beginning to feel strange – something is affecting the emotions. Susan and Michael find themselves embarking on a sensual adventure, experiencing head-spinning, stomach-tightening moments of pure connection. Is this because they are falling in love or is it because the world is falling apart? “Perfect Sense” serves as a life-affirming look at what it means to love and be loved in these turbulent times. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with director David Mackenzie to discuss his evolution as a director, the challenges in bringing “Perfect Sense” from script to screen and much more!

The entertainment industry is not for the faint of heart. When did you decide to pursue a career as a filmmaker as opposed to going in a different direction?

David Mackenzie

It was right around the time that I failed to get into the army. It is kind of an interesting story. You see, I come from a military family, so I thought that was what I wanted to do with my life, although I wasn’t that predisposed to it to be honest. I think I wanted to impress my Dad. I failed to get in because my hearing wasn’t good enough. I had always been interested in photography and poetry. Somehow or another the combination of the soul of a photographer and a poet isn’t that far off from being a filmmaker. It came out of that, when I was in my late teens really. I had a revelation when I was around 18. I saw four films in one week and they kind of blew my mind! Those films were “2001” by Stanley Kubrick, “Alphaville” by Jean-Luc Godard — who remains a shining light for me — “Caravaggio” by Derek Jarman — which among other things starred a very young Tilda Swinton, who I later went on to work with in the film “Young Adam” — and “Strangers Than Paradise” by Jim Jarmusch. Those films completely blew my mind. Those things sort of added up to make me want to become a film director.

Your latest project is “Perfect Sense.” For those not yet familiar with it, what can you tell us about the film?

I guess it is kind of an anti-genre genre movie in a way. It is a sci-fi film, which many might describe as kitchen sink sci-fi or lo-fi sci-fi. It was done that way very deliberately as it is a high concept movie that is being told on an intimate scale. Basically, it is the story of a love affair at the end of the world. Hopefully, it is a movie that is just as romantic as it is scary. It is emotional in all sorts of ways. It is a multi-faceted thing and is sort of hard to put in a box to be honest, for what it is. It definitely has a sci-fi element and quite surprisingly, a strong romantic element.

"Perfect Sense"

What attracted you to the project initially?

Seeing the opportunity to make a movie that was on big scale in terms of its themes but on an intimate scale in terms of what it was. I found that really exciting because I had just come back from America where I had made a movie. The script for this film seemed like a European film but the themes were more American in a way and it felt like an appropriate thing for me to do at the time. That is kind of what happens with projects, they land on your doorstep in one form or another and the ones that you end up doing are the ones that seem right at the time.

As you mentioned, the film balances two very big elements with a blossoming romance and a world that is falling apart. Was this a difficult thing for you to pull off?

In terms of difficulty, the difficult thing was imaging some of these elements of humanity’s collapse, the story elements. It is hard when you are trying to create a world that is breaking down. In a way, the hopefulness, romantic and beautiful elements of it were great because they were the relief from the heavier sides of the film. As a filmmaker, I have always tried to juggle both the heavy and the light. I am quite comfortable with those things! But obviously, when you are dealing with the lighter side or the more joyous side it is definitely a relief from dealing with the elements that might drag you down a bit.

Ewan McGregor and Eva Green

There is no shortage of talent with Ewan McGregor and Eva Green along for the ride. What did they bring to the table for a project like this?

There is a great chemistry between them. I think it is a very essential part of the movie and they are bringing that. It is kind of a combination of acting and them, their chemistry. You can’t really fake chemistry, so they are bringing their hearts and souls to it. They both really responded to the script, which you know, is an out-there thing. It’s not a normal film. It is a film that is trying to rebel against the conventions of some of the pockets that you could put it in. They understood that and brought their intuition, their intelligence, their brilliant acting chops, their extremely good looks … [laughs] and everything else to the table!

As a director, what was the biggest challenge in bringing this film from script to screen?

That’s a hard one! Because the film is divided into development, pre-production, production and post-production, they all have their challenges. During the shoot, I think it was trying to deal with the elements of the film dealing with the senses and the loss of the senses which you, yourself, are not experiencing and you have to imagine. That is always sort of a hard reach. Another thing that was difficult was during the edit. There were some areas where we are constructing things very deliberately in a sort of news-reel type of way and that was very much by design but there are so many choices there. That was always a hard thing to get through. Actually, making this film was a very pleasant experience to go through.

Is there something that jumps out at you as your fondest memory of making this film?

Yeah, I always have fun working with Ewen Bremner and having him and Ewan McGregor together. I think they have worked together since “Trainspotting” but the sparks were flying off of them and that was really good fun and memorable. All sorts of things regarding the food for the thing as well. We tried very hard to recreate the sense of a real kitchen and making sure that it all looked real with steam coming off of it. It is a hard thing to do but getting that right and capturing the energy of a real kitchen was a good experience for me as a director. The film has lots of mood shifts and changes, each one has a different tone, so being able to grasp those tones was good fun and a good learning experience as well.

How do you feel you evolved as a director through the years? Is that something you pay a lot of mind to?

David Mackenzie

Yes, definitely. Every film is a learning experience. Some of the films come together in a more difficult manner than others. I certainly think I am a much better director than when I started. I know how to do things and get around problems, I know how to make a shot work and do all sorts of things with actors. All of these things are things that I have learned from experience and you can’t teach them. That is the good thing about building up a body of work. “Perfect Sense” is my seventh film. It is quite interesting because I am collaborating on an art project on which I am working with a couple of people who haven’t made films before. I am watching these artists that I am working with direct for the first time and there is something great about that — the joy of doing it pure, without knowing what to do. I am still learning and I still enjoy learning and hopefully I am getting better!

What is the best piece of advice you would give to young filmmakers?

“Know your own mind and be patient” is probably the best piece of advice I can give. You have to stand your ground and it can be lonely out there doing that but you have to be patient. You are not going to get it right every time and you might not necessarily get it right the first time but you have to keep on doing it. It is a long game and plenty of careers have started off with one great movie but they find it hard after that, ya know. Keep in mind it is a long game!

Is there a particular type of film or genre you are anxious to tackle in the future?

Yeah! I am quite keen on what I am going to probably do next, which is a prison drama. It has a lot of fight scenes and action in it. I have never done that kind of thing before. I have always kind of turned away from projects that feel too genre-ish because it doesn’t feel real to me. This project feels both real and genre-ish and I am intrigued by that! I am also writing a script for a sci-fi and a western, so I am sort of going through the genres now. It is an interesting thing because when you enter into the territory of a genre, you have to kind of deal with all of the history of that particular genre and all the games that the genre plays. It is guaranteed to be a learning experience because you have to immerse yourself in what it is and what it means. As someone who loves cinema, I am looking at the experience of these things as something that is going to teach me things that I don’t yet know.

"Perfect Sense"

Looking back on your career at this point, what do you consider your biggest milestones to date?

That’s a really hard one! I made a movie called “Young Adam” with Ewan McGregor, Tilda Swinton, Peter Mullen and Emily Mortimer. It was my first proper film. I spent 10 years trying to get it off of the ground. I guess that was a film that let me carry on as a director and it was a major milestone. It even played in Canne. It was really exciting and I guess that means that everything else I have done since is insignificant! [laughs] It’s hard to know but that was definitely a major milestone.

What other projects should we be on the lookout for in the short term?

I have another film that is coming out early this year in the U.S. which is called “Tonight You’re Mine.” That is the U.S. title, in the UK it was called “You Instead.” That should be coming out within the next two months, I believe. That is a very different kind of film, it is a rock ‘n’ roll comedy! It was made in a very kind of speedy way with a punk rock vibe to it. It is a very light and fun romantic comedy.

We look forward to spreading the word on all of your work! Thank you so much for your time today!

Thank you for the great conversation and for making it very enjoyable! Have a great day!

“Perfect Sense” opens in at the IFC Center this Friday, February 3, 2012 and is currently available on VOD nationwide.
