Sure, San Diego Comic Con is all about promoting the biggest Hollywood has to offer, but some more modest productions are also on the scene to show us what they’re made of, productions like Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive.
Due out on September 16th, Drive stars Ryan Gosling as a stunt performer by day, getaway driver in the criminal underworld by night. Ron Perlman plays Nino, an associate of Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks), the local mob boss who fronts the money to pay for Gosling’s character’s wheels. In addition to struggling with his disapproval of Bernie’s choice to dish out the cash, Nino’s also got a bit of an identity crisis as he’s Jewish, but Italian at heart.
Check out what Perlman had to say about that, his experience working with Refn, his passion for Drive and much more in the video interview below.
