IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with actors Tom Sizemore and Kevin Farley, as well as director Jesse Baget to discuss their work on Cellmates. They talked about the new movie, it's complex comedic tone, Bubba and Leroy's relationship, Farley's simple approach to acting, Sizemore's love for acting, how he made his detestable character redeeming, and why he ultimatley destroyed Stacey Keach's "actor's soul."
