The Great Nick Nolte Talks About “Warrior”

Uploaded on Tuesday 6 September 2011


Meeting Nick Nolte, the cinema icon, was a real blessing! I enjoyed every minute I spent interviewing the acting legend. And let me tell you, he gave a fine, fine performance in “Warrior” as Paddy Conlon, the alcoholic father of the two dueling brothers played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His attraction to the movie
*** Working with Gavin O’Connor, who pursued him and played him their old voicemail exchange that sealed the deal
*** His knee surgery
*** How O’Connor found his main actors (Nolte said the director complained about not finding American actors for the part
*** His character’s penchant for listening to the audio book adaptation of Herman Mellville’s “Moby Dick”
