Läs intervju med Joey Bada$$ inför premiären av Mr. Robot



Ikväll har den andra säsongen av Mr. Robot premiär i USA, och i en av rollerna kommer vi få se Joey Bada$$. Brooklyn-rapparen har fått rollen som Leon, som kommer spela en nära vän till huvudkaraktären Elliot, spelad av Rami Malek.



I en intervju med Rolling Stone så pratar Joey om hur han fick rollen och hur det är att vara och arbeta med stora skådespelare. Nedan går att läsa ett utdrag ur intervjun:




How did you get involved with Mr. Robot?


There was a casting call. I auditioned for the role of Leon. I got three callbacks, and I was finally casted. That’s pretty much how it happened. My character is basically speaking to the main character in this diner, so it wasn’t hard at all. It’s simple, actually. I just went in the audition and I had my lines memorized, like, literally, five minutes before I walked into the room, because I had no time to rehearse because of my business schedule. And yeah, I just went in there and Sam [Esmail] was right there when I auditioned. I had him laughing from the very moment that I started doing my lines. I was pretty confident after that.



When did you meet Rami Malek?


First time I met him was on the first day that we shot. That was in March. The first day I shot, I had scenes with him and Christian Slater. For me, it was like, they set the bar high. It was a little bit of pressure on me because I’m like, “Wow, I’m right in between these two amazing actors. I’ve got to be great in their presence.” But they gave me a lot of confidence and pointers. They made me feel comfortable so I could do what I had to do.
