And then you realize that Forrest knows about his condition all along and your heart breaks a little.
Why did you cast Jared Leto as Mr. Nobody?
I try not to have a face in mind when I write. I keep the field of possibilities open. Fortunately, in the case of MR. NOBODY I needed an actor who could transform himself, as much physically as vocally, rhythmically, his breathing… It’s pretty obvious from the many films where he is unrecognizable that Jared has a taste for transformation. This was confirmed on set. The more different from himself he has to be, the most at ease and the most brilliant he is. That’s when he is at his most natural, like in the scenes in which he plays an old man. Jared is an actor of transformation.
