Benicio Del Toro Talks Inherent Vice

Steve "Frosty" Weintraub of Collider conducted an interview with Benicio Del Toro -- who is on the heels of a box-office-shattering hit in Guardians of the Galaxy -- and he was able to ask about his experience working with PTA on Inherent Vice. We seem to be having a slight problem embedding the video, but the remarks are brief, so here's a transcription as well as a link to the story.
Collider: Two of my most anticipated films that are upcoming later: Paradise Lost, Inherent Vice. How'd you get involved in those projects and can you sort of talk about the experience of making them?
Benicio Del Toro: Paul Thomas Anderson called me up, and you just say "yes." And then, working with Joaquin Phoenix, who's one of my favorite actors. And I've known him for a while too, and we never worked together, so I was very excited... and that was a lot of fun...
(Thanks for the heads-up, Harley Quinn)

IV (theatrical premiere): 134 days
IV (world premiere): 65 days

  1. I wonder if Del Toro and Brolin are naturally inarticulate or are under contract to refrain from openly speaking about the film. Or, it is possible that "journalists" who cover film just don't care enough to ask proper questions.

  2. I don't think this was worth a blog post.

  3. I was being very patient up until now but since the trailer MUST be close is there any news on when it may be dropping?


  5. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
