Watch: Conversations with the Cast and Crew of ‘Black Mass’

Though Black Mass was shut out on the Oscars, many still praised the film’s depiction of infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger. In particular, Johnny Depp received praise for his first outside-the-box role in quite some time in his portrayal of Bulger. The movie, which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, will likely remain one of Depp’s standout roles.

In this Screen Actors Guild Foundation Conversation moderated by Dave Karger of Fandango, director/producer Scott Cooper, producer John Lesher and stars Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Rory Cochrane, Julianne Nicholson and W. Earl Brown talk about making the film. In particular, Depp talks about getting into Bulger’s head, the cast talks about the difficulty of mastering the Boston accent, and many other details about the filmmaking process.
