Ain’t It Cool News talked to Like Crazy director, Drake Doremus about the movie and he tells them about Jennifer Lawrence’s casting:
Capone: How soon after you saw her in WINTER’S BONE did you want to cast her in this movie or did Anton recommend her?
DD: Right away! She was the perfect actress for this style of filmmaking, because she’s so committed to the moment and so grounded, and she is always doing what’s necessary – nothing more and nothing less, which is exactly what I like in a performance. She’s just magnificent, and I was very fortunate to be able to have her in the film.
