Emory Cohen’s past credits include Brooklyn, The Place Beyond The Pines, Lords of Chaos, and the short-lived but much-loved series The OA. Now he stars as Samuel in Brian Petsos’ wildly unique comedy Big Gold Brick and delivers a performance so full of mania, big humor and bold choices it will have you continuously rapt. On this episode, he talks about the aspects of his process that he relies on with every role, the walk down “the gallery” of past great performances, sometimes “silly” animal work, focused rehearsal with a coach, and he explains why he actually enjoys the restrictions and frustrating precisions of the film set, plus much more.
