interviewed Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin [Radio Silence] about their horror-comedy.  Extract about casting Matthew Goode –

Matthew [Goode] did not have to audition because we are mega fans, specifically, of his portrayal of Robert Evans in The Offer. It’s like a 10 out of 10, if you haven’t seen it. But when he said he’d do it … Sometimes you’re looking for something and then, at a certain point, it’s like it fits the box and you go, “Oh, my God, there it is. That’s it.” And as soon as he said he was in or was interested or his name came to us, I don’t really remember how that exactly happened, but we immediately went, “Oh, my God, he would be f-cking perfect.” And then in our opinion, he nailed it and is.

Gillett: We needed somebody to … The way that they carry themselves actually to bring a level of mystery and nuance to what that character is instead of this just big, brute force. There’s something very graceful and ethereal and strange about how Matthew looked in the teeth and the costume. And I think it implies so many interesting little pockets of history and story that exist off-screen. I mean, look, I think what being a talent like him is, right? You bring that sense of it, feeling lived in, even if you’re on-screen for a minute and 40 seconds or whatever that scene actually is, it was really wild to watch that come together. It’s such a short amount of time, but so important and so essential to the end of the movie.
