COMIC REEL: Delevingne Reveals “Suicide Squad” Audition Process; An Empire Falls In “X-Men” TV Spot

SUICIDE SQUAD

W has an interview with Cara Delevingne about how she landed her role as Enchantress in “Suicide Squad.”

“I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night,” said Delevingne. “He didn’t tell me anything about the movie. Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women. He spoke to me about addiction and mental illness, which are things I find very, very interesting. The next time I met David was at his house in L.A. He asked me to read a scene from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I love that play and had acted in it at school when I was 17, so I was excited. Somehow, when we were doing the scene, I became livid. I hadn’t felt rage like that in years. And then I got the part! There still wasn’t a script, but David asked me to go and try and find a forest and, if it was a full moon, get naked and walk through the woods with my feet in the mud, which I did. There wasn’t a full moon, but I howled like a wolf. It would have been really funny if someone had seen me.”

CBR also has a freewheeling interview with “Preacher” actor Joseph Gilgun, who stars as the vampire Cassidy. Gilgun spoke about how he landed the role: “By auditioning, you know. By getting off my ass and going and not accepting the cards that I was being dealt, which was plasterer and occasional career criminal. That’s what I had to work with at the time. My mum and dad had given me everything they could, and it was time that I had to do my own thing.

“I was going through this thing — especially during my teens, which is turbulent for any young man or woman — but I was going off the fucking rails. If it hadn’t have been for this job, I try to think where I’d be. Drugs. Jail. So, I’m very, very, very lucky. And fucking hell, dude, there’s not a single day that I don’t wake up and know that.

“I’ve got friends who have infinite potential, and because of the place we grew up in and the cards we were dealt, they were limited. I’ve been incredibly lucky, man. And it’s not that they have miserable lives. My friends are happy and good people. [Exhales deeply] But fucking life ain’t fair, man. Some people — like sometimes I feel a bit guilty. Not like I’ve left them behind or anything, but I’m so lucky. And I know, I fucking know how lucky I am. Sometimes, there is an element of guilt, I think because of where I’m from. There’s always that feeling of like, ‘What if they find me out?'”
