 Scott A. Martin
Scott A. Martin
Although 你 might not recognize actor SCOTT A. MARTIN yet, 你 soon will. Scott is having a huge summer with appearances in three films this month, including alongside Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in “THE CAMPAIGN,” Gina Gershon in “KILLER JOE” and Josh Duhamel in “FIRE WITH FIRE.”

Whether Hollywood needs an uber fan, an overbearing boss, 或者 a scary skinhead, this West Virginia native is proving to be the new ‘go-to’ character guy. And this isn’t all, Scott has roles in the upcoming films “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D (Leatherface)” and in the highly-anticipated Tom Cruise film, “Jack Reacher.” Previously, he’s appeared in the films “American Violet” and “Unstoppable”; and on the TV shows “Common Law,” “Memphis Beat,” and “Chicago Hope,” among others.

I recently had a chance to catch up with this hard working actor, who shares what it’s like working with Will & Zach, a few stories from the set and his need for a challenge.


HOLLY: Tell us a little about your role in the new comedy film “The Campaign”

SCOTT: I play a character 由 the name of Wes Talager, the ultimate ‘super fan’ of incumbent Congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell). I travel from rally to rally in support of him and at the same time terrorize his opponent, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis).

HOLLY: What was it like working with two of the funniest guys in films these days: Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis? Was it hard to keep a straight face?

SCOTT: It was an absolute blast! Both were all business on set and I think neither really knew what to do with me at first since they didn’t know me yet and my character was so over the top. Once we got going it was a real good time. I worked for 12 weeks along side them both and was constantly trying to just keep up. Our director 松鸦, 杰伊, 杰伊 · Roach and I worked hard to come up with some really fresh and crazy things to try to throw them off but it rarely worked. One time we shaved Zach's face into my chest hair and I lifted my 衬衫 at one of the debates. I also had a scene where I had to try to 吻乐队(Kiss) Will and it was hard not to laugh as I moved in for the smooch.

HOLLY: Any fun stories 你 can share from the set?

SCOTT: Best story I have from the set was when there was a rally and they had BTO playing in a 音乐会 setting and the makeup department had covered me with glycerin and water to make it look like I was sweating and it was so cold inside the arena. I remember there were hundreds of extras looking at me not knowing who I was 或者 why I was there and I had some pretty good moments that day. Of course, it was always fun watching both Will and Zach each vie for the audience’s adoration and try to be the 最喜爱的 when the cameras were not rolling.

Also, there were a lot of funny scenes that had to be cut because they changed the ending of the film. In the original ending, I kidnapped Cam and took him 首页 and wrapped him to my 长椅, 沙发 in saran wrap. There were a few other campaign rallies scenes that were hilarious, with me hanging off billboards, chasing cars and buses, and I even had myself painted blue at one point with the word “CAM” written on my forehead. I’m being told these scenes might 显示 up eventually in the DVD extras.

HOLLY: You’re also currently appearing in director William Friedkin’s latest film “Killer Joe,” can 你 tell us about that?

SCOTT: I play a domineering 比萨, 比萨饼 Manager and boss to Gina Gershon. It's a smaller role in the film, but I took it just to be a part of this amazing cast. And, watching William Friedkin work was such a treat. I really enjoyed the entire experience.

HOLLY: And, coming later this 月 we can catch 你 as a skinhead in the crime drama “Fire with Fire” opposite Josh Duhamel, what was that like?

SCOTT: 火, 消防 with 火, 消防 was the hardest of them all and the shortest shoot for me. It was tough because I had a really big fight scene and this was the first time I had done all my own stunt work. Josh and I blocked everything over and over and finally director David Barrett just cut us loose and we were all over the place. I honestly thought I might have to go to a hospital the 下一个 日 I was so beat up. That being said, I would not trade the experience for anything. I have a scene in that movie that will cause everyone watching to cringe and close their eyes. Hopefully they won't close them for too long though!

HOLLY: You’ve got such variety to the types of roles 你 play, do 你 have a favorite?

SCOTT: I don't really have a 最喜爱的 and they all require such a different kind of energy. Working on a comedy is fun, but doing the same funny thing isn't funny to those watching after 你 do it ten times. So, it becomes 更多 of a challenge the 更多 takes 你 do. I think for me, drama gets better with 更多 takes and the comedy gets worse. But, I'm sure all actors are different. I usually get cast as a bad guy so I suppose I have some look to me that suggests I can be a bad guy. Honestly, I just look 前锋, 期待 to working and to being challenged each time I step on-set. If it ever gets to where I just 显示 up and do the lines, I am sure I will want to quit and do something else. I 爱情 bringing other peoples lines to life and creating characters and with all three of these roles I have coming out this month, I think I've served the script, the director, and everyone else involved the best I can.


Thanks for taking a break to chat with us, Scott. Keep challenging yourself -- we're loving the results!

Daddy Keanu is back again to play my multi-dimensional baby John Wick! I've never squealed so hard for a sequel in my life.

First off, if 你 haven't seen the first John Wick, I strongly urge 你 to immediately because my review will mean nothing to you. When I first watched John Wick, I was blown away. One of the most pure action 电影院 of the past decade, it was an extreme roller coaster ride of emotions from the very beginning. 你 cared about this man because he just 迷失 his wife, then some thug steals his car and *gasp!* KILLS HIS DOG (which btw was the last gift his wife...
