Bradley Cooper on Pierce Gagnon in ‘Looper’

SAG Preview: Actors on Actors - Cooper on Gagnon

I just saw “Looper” and Pierce Gagnon, the little boy who played Emily Blunt’s demonic son, was incredible. There’s a level of reality there, a level of authenticity.

You thought, “How did Rian Johnson get this performance?” He just hit it out of the park. I was stunned. Gagnon was fierce and utterly childlike and evoked so many potentially cliched characters; it was a character we’ve seen a 100 times, and he made it new.
