Léon: The Professional with Adam Busch
Wonderful actor and musician Adam Busch joins Matt to chat about how he went full method for his role as Manolo in Léon: The Professional. Adam talks about getting a full character background for Manolo directly from director Luc Besson, the charged sexual atmosphere on the set, Danny Aiello holding court on Ninth Avenue, and the alternate endings to the film which may or may not have included a musical number. Finally, Matt closes the show with a little taste of Eric Serra’s “The Experience of Love” which leads to an important exploration of the controversy behind some of the music of the James Bond franchise.NATALIE PORTMAN’S AUDITION: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhRW8J3gTuo GARY OLDMAN ACTING PILLS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74BzSTQCl_c GARY OLDMAN ‘BRING ME EVERYONE!’: https://youtu.be/d7G9qi9MYhc
