Once a movie villain, always a villain.
Mark Hamill described his Sundance offbeat comedy “Brigsby Bear,” in which he plays an unsympathetic character, as both comedic and poignant.
“There were elements in it, especially with my character and Jane Adams’ — my wife — that I thought, ‘Boy it’s going to be really tricky to remain sympathetic when they find out what we’ve done,'” he said. “I thought ‘I like playing villains, anyway.'”
Director Dave McCary and stars Matt Walsh, Kyle Mooney, and Michaela Watkins also discussed the film at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher’s, at the Sundance Film Festival.
