Wes Anderson - Wes Anderson Casts 'Not Very Good' Actors

Wes Anderson likes casting ''not very good'' actors.

The 'Moonrise Kingdom' filmmaker likes to mix his casts with established stars and unknown actors and thinks it is always ''nice'' to see a cross section of talent on screen together.

He said: ''There can be something nice about an experienced actor and a not-very-good actor who is an interesting person playing a scene together.''

Wes also admitted his latest film, 'Moonrise Kingdom' - which stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Drances McDormand and features two 12 years olds who decide to run away together and the subsequent search - is loosely based on one of his own crushes from when he was younger.

He added to Esquire magazine: ''I don't know what the premise of it is, really. I wanted to do a movie about a romance between two 12 year olds that they take so seriously the adults don't know what to do about it.

''The inspiration is my own experience of suddenly having a crush on this girl when I was that age and what didn't happen.

''So this is what I envisioned and planned at that time. I only succeeded in executing it as a fiction.''
