Joel Kinnaman Faced a One-Day Shoot, a 17-Page Monologue and a Pink Dog on the Set of ‘Knight of Cups’

joel-kinnaman-robocopActors are always faced with different challenges on set and they must adapt to make the scene work. However, Joel Kinnaman might have had the greatest obstacles of all while shooting the Terrence Malick film Knight of Cups. The 34-year-old actor not only had a 17-page monologue, he also had only one day to shoot the scene.

Kinnaman talked to Collider about the scene and how it all played out.

He said, “Christian Bale, who I was playing opposite—who had a lot of lines that would lead me into the next three pages—he hadn’t seen his pages. So when we started shooting, he’d just walk off, and I’d be chasing him saying all this stuff, when he was actually the one who was supposed to be interested, and that’s the reason that I was talking.”

“And then into page nine of my monologue, I’d turn around and see Terry like a 150 yards away shooting some pink dog running around. It was indeed a very interesting experience. I have no idea what that film is.”

Let’s hope the audience knows what the film is about once it’s released sometime in 2014.
