My Interviews With Crispin Glover and Nina Dobrev for Lucky Day in Theaters and On Demand Today, Plus an Opportunity to See the Film in Los Angeles Tonight With an Awesome Q&a!

I got the opportunity this week to watch the film Lucky Day, which was written and directed by Roger Avary, who wrote alongside Tarantino for Pulp Fiction, which this film felt like an homage or distant cousin to. The action/revenge flick stars Luke Bracey as Red, a safe-cracking thief who has just gotten out of prison, his beautiful wife, a french artist played by Nina Dobrev, their daughter, Ella Ryan Quinn, his best friend and literal partner in crime, Clé Bennett, their nanny, Nadia Farès, and Red’s hardened parole officer, Clifton Collins Jr., and Crispin Glover plays Luc, the assassin hellbent on a revenge mission that includes taking Red out for good.

Each portrayal was quirky, honest, and darkly funny. I was able to interview the actors Nina Dobrev and Crispin Glover about their experiences in portraying these characters, and we spoke a bit about what they each have coming up.
