Ricky Gervais is interviewed about his new film. One of his unique recruitment techniques:
Gervais assembled his Invention of Lying cast, which includes Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman and nominee Edward Norton making cameo appearances, in the same way he gathered his guest stars for Extras – he simply asked them.
“I didn’t know Philip Seymour Hoffman, but I sent him an email saying, 'Dear Philip, please do my new film. There’s no money as I spent the entire budget on testicular implants. But don’t think of them as my testicles, think of them as our testicles.’ He loved it, and it worked.
