On Brad Pitt’s southern accent: “For the most part when we were on set he would stay in character. It was like, ‘Why drop the accent when you don’t have to?’ And I have always liked it when actors do that.
On Pitt staying in character: “He’d get into Aldo’s mindset and stay there. He could be Brad and make a Brad joke but it was always in Aldo’s dialect. Aldo is more crude than Brad. So that allowed Brad to go all the way with that. It was wonderful as a writer to be confronted by my character all day, and to talk to him and ask questions.”
