Philip Seymour Hoffman on director-actor John Slattery: 'He knows what he's doing'
PARK CITY, Utah - Philip Seymour Hoffman is pulling double-duty at the Sundance Film Festival this year, with "God's Pocket" and "A Most Wanted Man," but only the former is directed by John Slattery, who's making his feature film debut in between shoots for "Mad Men."
"[Slattery] knows what he's doing... some actors that are always thinking of the bigger picture all the time. That's John," Hoffman said on the red carpet to drama "God's Pocket." "I think a long time ago he wanted to do this. I was just lucky enough to jump on his passion bandwagon and ride it."
"It's a film about a man, an adult man, who is faced with an adult decision ultimately, and he grows up. It's not about adolecence, you know what I mean?" he said. "And it's hard. He's living in a world that's pretty shady. "
