Sideways Star Owes Movie Role To Brando Connection
Sideways writer and director Alexander Payne first met with Church in the late 1990s when the moviemaker considered him for a role in his black comedy ELECTION - and discovered he had signed on to make FREE MONEY with his hero Brando.
But the Sideways star is convinced Payne has only ever been interested in him because of his links to Brando.
He says, "To this day I am convinced that the real reason we met was because Alexander is from Nebraska, and he was completely fascinated that I was about to go off and make a movie with Brando.
"When we were doing Sideways, every now and then he would be like, `Tell me a story about Brando.'"05/03/2005 01:42
