by at . Comments
Getting Stephen Dorff to star in Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star took all of an hour for Adam Sandler -- the film’s producer. On the phone with his friend Sandler for a catch up call, Dorff mentioned his desire to try some comedy after a career of stellar work onscreen in dramas. An hour later, Sandler called and said, “Have I got the part for you.”

Stephen Dorff in Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star

In Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star, Dorff is a porn star at the top of his game until the title character comes to town and is suddenly the industry’s star du jour. Therein lies the comedy in Bucky Larson, and Dorff was more than game to make his first foray into the Happy Madison production team’s latest comedic venture.

Dorff has the uncanny ability to play roles that after witnessing the film audiences are left drawing a blank when thinking how any other actor could have taken on the role with such power. From his recent turn in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere, to Michael Mann’s Public Enemies and even back to his devilish role in Blade, Dorff also keeps audiences guessing where they will find him next. Evidence of that is his part in Bucky Larson across the film’s stars Nick Swardson, Don Johnson and Kevin Nealon.

Dorff visited with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview recently and gave us the inside scoop on how Sofia Coppola, of all people, was integral for him in taking the role of Dick Shadow in Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star.
