Sound Bite: Bobby Coleman – most common question
Actually you want to know the least common thing (talks) The uhm the least common was the the meaning of the movie (talks) I think the meaning of the movie, ok yes! I get to say it, I think the meaning of the movie is really about just loving somebody for who they are and not not loving somebody for who you want them to be. But uhm loving and feeling love and feeling loved and I think the movies about overall about gradual movement of Dennis trusting John or trusting David (talks) and uhm I think its it shows the gradual movement really well and in one scene it actually shows it, in one scene really good when he’s passing the ball to Dennis, Dennis kind of scoots in and that scenes just kind of showing the gradual movement (talks) yeah I think that’s a good analogy.

Sound Bite: Bobby Coleman - could he really be a Martian
Yeah that’s intentional you know really know if he’s a martian or not but I think you are supposed to think if he’s a martian because is he weird because he’s a martian or is he weird because he has all this pain inside from all the foster care parents that left him and his own parents.

Sound Bite: Bobby Coleman
Yes I have I never met him in it, its Must Love Dogs I was in that uhm and he was in that but we never crossed paths (Talks) uhm he’s an amazing actor, I think he’s a phenomenal actor, he’s like he actually came up to me the first time I met him and he said I’m going to keep it distant now but as the film goes on I’m going to gradually get to know you better and I think that was really interesting, he was fully into it off camera and on camera, he’s a good actor (talks) yeah and uhm in the beginning of the movie we don’t know each other and it worked out this time because uhm the movie was filmed in order which is usual to find and uhm John Cusack every scene, every take and every scene is totally different, he improves so much, he taught me that which I think is a really good skill. He just taught me to kind of losen up a little bit and to find what Dennis would do in that scene and what you think Dennis would do in that scene and I think he fully understanded David’s character and that’s really great.
