Patton Oswalt Interview for “Young Adult”
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews
Patton Oswalt gave a memorable performance in “Young Adult” where he plays Matt, the “geek” who falls in love with the popular girl, Mavis (Charlize Theron). This was my second time interviewing the actor, the first was for Disney/Pixar’s “Ratatouille.” His “Young Adult” role is certainly miles away from Remy the rat.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** What attracted him to the character Matt?
*** The challenges of working in “Young Adult”
*** The amazing Collette Wolfe who plays his sister Sandra
*** Any regrets from High School?
*** How did he prepare for his role?
