Chris O'Dowd Talks MOONE BOY, the Semi Autobiographical Storylines, His Work on THOR: THE DARK WORLD, and More

From Chris O’Dowd, the semi-autobiographical comedy series Moone Boy (now available exclusively on Hulu) is about an 11-year-old boy named Martin Moone (David Rawle), who is the youngest child in the large, loud Moone family, in late 1980s Ireland. Helping Martin get through life, and survive school bullies, is his 30-year-old imaginary friend (O’Dowd). During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Irish actor Chris O’Dowd talked about how the show came about, the semi-autobiographical storylines, collaborating with Nick Vincent Murphy, how challenging it was to find the right child actor to lead the show, how he will happily go to any lengths for his own character, how important it was to make the show suitable for audiences the age of the young characters, and that they’ve already completed a second season and are about to start shooting a third. He also talked about how much he enjoyed the improvisational style of Christopher Guest’s Family Tree, his work on Thor 2, and that he always hopes to ensure that the next role he’s playing is different from the last. Check out what he had to say after the jump. READ MORE...
