27 Apr, 2012

In this comedy drama is directed by Richard Linklater, McConaughey plays Danny Buck Davidson, a local district attorney, who charges Tiede (Jack Black) with first-degree murder, accused of killing Nugent (Shirley MacLaine).

I started with Bernie and then talked to Scrappy (the defense attorney) as well. Jack wanted to meet Bernie so we facilitated that. I went to the trial about 15 years ago. I was into it back then. I wanted to see him testify. So yeah, it’s tricky when you do something that’s based on real events, real people. You know, I was concerned about the families and you try to be as accurate as you possibly can.
