What’s the Secret?
1428 Elm: What was it like to work with two vets like Robert Patrick and Ray Wise? These actors have experience with franchises just like you.
RS: I didn’t get to work with them on this one. I did get to work with Ray on another movie that Ricky Bates directed called Suburban Gothic. It was pretty fun. I enjoy working with older veteran actors because you have to look at them think, “What’s the secret? What have you done to consistently work your entire life and still remain happy and relevant and still learning?”
So, working with Ray the first time around was awesome. It was very similar to Bruce. Kind of like the vibe where you’re I remember watching you as a kid and now, here I am. Super fun.
So Long, for Now
1428 Elm: Ray, any parting words for your fans? Anything on the horizon?
RS: I am super excited about Speed of Life this movie I did with Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale). It will be hitting the festival circuit next year. All I am going to say is I had my first official sex scene with her.
I was very nervous and then it all went away. I learned so much from her. Talk about a veteran actress, I played her boyfriend in this film.
It’s a very strange movie. I guess I would say it’s sort of based on the night David Bowie died and what happened to these people. To answer your question, there is a David Bowie quote, “I don’t know where I am going from here but I promise it won’t be boring!”
Many thanks to Ray for taking the time to talk to us. You can catch him Oct. 5 on Hulu when Into the Dark premieres with episode 1, The Body.
