Dead Man Down, the English language debut of original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev, opens in theaters today, starting March 8th. In the film, Colin Farrell plays Victor, a hitman blackmailed into a revenge plot against his former mob boss. To gain the upperhand, Victor is forced to take an Albanian man hostage. Robert Vataj plays this poor, tortured soul, and stayed in character, blindfolded and unfed, for the duration of his time on set.
We recently caught up with Robert, who made a name for himself with his memorable role in The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, to talk about the experience of being strapped to a chair by Colin Farrell for a three day stretch.
Was he allowed to take breaks? Did he eat? Was he ever able to eventually become friends with Colin? »
