Opening in theaters on September 7th is the new thriller from first-time co-directors/co-writers Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal called The Words. The film features an all-star cast of actors that includes Bradley Cooper (Hit & Run), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Dennis Quaid (Any Given Sunday), Olivia Wilde (The Change-Up), Ben Barnes (Killing Bono), John Hannah (The Hurricane), J. K. Simmons (Spider-Man), and Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune). 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Ben Barnes to talk about his work on The Words. The talented young actor discussed the new film, the research he did to play a post-WWII era soldier, how the costumes and set did most of the work for him, preparing for his emotionally draining scenes, playing a young version of Jeremy Irons' character, and why director Brian Klugman thought he was perfect to portray the Oscar-winner in his youth.
