Australian actor Joel Edgerton stars in The Odd Life of Timothy Green and tells us exclusively in our video interview how the Disney film was a special endeavor. The science fiction he experienced in The Thing was nothing compared to the supernatural power that drew him in his latest.
“I loved that it was a film that strives to talk about family -- because we’re all parents and children,” Edgerton said. “But it had that element of magic to it that I’ve never really been involved in. I’ve been involved in science fiction films, but this is the real world with kind of a thin veneer of magic over it.”
When the film arrives August 15, audiences will also discover the magic that is the chemistry between Edgerton (recently seen in Warrior) and his co-star Jennifer Garner, as hinted at so well in The Odd Life of Timothy Green trailer.
“From the moment I walked in the room, Jennifer was very comfortable to be around. I was kind of relaxed and I knew we would have fun,” Edgerton added. “She was everything I’d imagined her to be.”
