[275] Stephen Lang Interview

Here is some material from last week's Avatar press junket. To start with, an interview with actor Stephen Lang.

Ahead of the much-anticipated release of Avatar next week, we had the chance to speak with Stephen Lang, who plays muscly-and-mean marine Colonel Quaritch.

Lang, who goes by the nickname 'slang', has already turned in two memorable performances this year, in Michael Mann's Public Enemies and the film adaptation of Jon Ronson's The Men Who Stare At Goats. His larger-than-life appearance as Avatar's antagonist is the jewel of the bunch, capping off a great year for the stage actor, and current co-artistic director of the respected Actor's Studio. A precise, intriguing figure, in this roundtable interview we speak about his theatre and film careers, his fascination with the military, and the movie actors that have inspired him.
