I had never heard of Nolan Gerard Funk before last night but he was on Glee, is a new cast member on Awkward and more importantly he worked on The Canyons with Lindsay Lohan so he gave me the scoop on her.
Life imitating art?
“Lindsay definitely gave me a lot to work with. As an actor I think the least interesting thing about an actor is their personal life, but Lindsay plays a character who has gone through so much with substance abuse, lots going on in their personal life, and she gives a great performance.
“There was so much controversy about Lindsay, and then with [porn star] James Deen being cast, too, but we’re all so proud of the movie. It’s getting great buzz from serious film people so I’m excited for everyone to see it.”
He also worked with Vin Diesel on Ridic so this young kid from Canada could be one to watch.
“Working with Vin Diesel on Ridic was amazing. I didn’t even have to see a script, I was just so excited to work with Vin Diesel and blow stuff up. It’s every young actors dream.
“I had to bulk up for the role and also just because I was going to be working with Vin. We were all like pumping iron in the hotel room.”
