  1. Lex says:

    Wait this is that hot chick from SCREAM 4 and FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT? Doesn’t even look like her.

  2. SamLowry says:

    Well, she is 23, so I guess on the Lex Scale she qualifies for AARP membership.

    (…and she was also the ex-GF from Hades in Scott Pilgrim. Gotta get that Pilgrim reference in there.)

    (…and I’m also glad to see her mug does say “Keep Calm and Carry On”–I’m starting to get really tired of The Chive.)

  3. Don R. Lewis says:

    I just met her tonight and am excited to see this interview. Talk about a genuinely NICE and intelligent woman….she’s awesome. So psyched SHORT TERM 12 won the narrative feature award tonight at SXSW too, I’m seeing it tomorrow. I cannot recommend Daniel Destin Crettin’s first feature I AM NOT A HIPSTER highly enough. Seek it out, it’s absolutely not waht you think.

  4. The Pope says:

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    We give you the next Tracy Flick. Ambition. Youth. Energy. Intelligence. Confidence. Poise.

    And happily, in the eyes of this observer at least, completely lacking the unconscionable morass of self-entitlement that Flick had in abundance. Can’t wait to see how far she goes.

    Nice interview, David. Thanks.

“I wanted to make you love a murderer. There’s no way of redeeming him. He’s a drunk and a killer. He killed at least seven people (that we know of). But there were reasons he was a bad guy. He was surrounded by evil in those days. A lot of people were killed building modern Florida—modern everywhere. Watson had plenty of opportunities to see how rough those guys were playing and he thought he could do it too. At least he rationalized it that way. He had the devil beaten out of him and became a very dangerous guy. And he couldn’t handle his liquor, which is one of the worst aspects of him. And he went crazy. Understanding how that happened is useful, I think. There’s no reason any one of us couldn’t be Edgar Watson.”
