Fares Fares came to Sweden in the mid 80s, learned the
language in 3 months, and was going to be an architect, but instead ended up
being one of our most celebrated
actors. In King he talks about typecasting,
acting opposite Tom Hardy inthe upcoming Child 44, and the danger of accidentally
hitting Denzel Washington in the chin.
-”No one gets around typecasting, in the beginning – but it’s up to yourself to steer away from it. You can say no to parts and go in another direction. You can’t construct yourself completely as an actor, you’ll always depend on others, but you can talk to your team and tell them what you’re interested in. First of all, you’ll be typecast no matter who you are, even if you are a tall Northerner or what ever. You must think long term: You play this or that character, you display nuances, and slowly but steadily people with realize that you have a wide repertoire. But I’ll never be able to play…let’s say…Oden. That’s okay with me, I don’t need to. I never thought about typecasting as a problem for me, but of course it’s there”.
”No, you never know. A lot of scenes were cut from Zero Dark Thirty, and not just scenes with me but with everybody involved. They decided to focus completely on Jessica Chastain and a lot of side stories were cut. Some of them were mine. That always happens, in all films. Think of it like this: first you write a script, and that’s one movie. Then you shoot, and that’s another. Then you edit, and that’s a third movie, the final project. Most of the time editing has nothing to do with whether you, as an actor, are good or bad, or if the scene is good or bad, it’s got to do with the pace/continuity of the whole story. It’s also a process: One of the producers had one of my scenes in Zero Dark Thirty as his favourite, and it was in for a long time, then it was taken out, out back, taken out, put back… in the end it wasn’t in the film, that’s how it is”.

I laughed at Fares not playing Odin. I think he'd do a great job. I was surprised there was no discussion of his Danish work, but maybe he was supposed to promote Child 44, and he wanted to discuss his English language movies/show. The interviewer WAS star-struck. I wonder if Fares got inwardly annoyed that the interviewer wanted to talk about "Hollywood stars" as much as about his work. But then again, it proved the point that Fares does A-List work and does it well. But we knew that here.It was also interesting to read that most of the other actors were left on the cutting room floor for Zero Dark Thirty to center it on Chastain. I love Chastain, but when I watched ZDT at the theater I kept thinking 'get her off the screen for a minute!!'. I felt like they were taking a really serious subject in history that a lot of people took part in, and trivialized the whole story into 'Oscar maker' for her. The movie would have been so much better if they had told the story with more respect.
