Personal Quote:

Bad movies are a real education because you say "look at that, what was that close up, those two shots don't match! That performance was so bad, why did that guy do that? I would never do that!" And so in a sense while you're watching something that's really awful, you're playing along and reviewing it and saying "No, I wouldn't have done it that way, this way's much better".


Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener had originally thought of casting wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts for the role of The Drake, but when he saw Downey's audition tape, he realized that he was the man for the job. See more »
