Stephen Lang has always been an intense performer. But his work in the upcoming Don’t Breathe takes that intimidation vibe to an entirely new level. It seems as though Alvarez was willing to do anything and everything to ensure Lang be as menacing as possible.
It worked, and this is how:
They would put him on the side and he would stay there, idle, like a character in a video game. I would go and piss him off! I’d go and tell him, “These fucking kids! They’re breaking into your house! They’re somewhere in your house! You don’t know where they are, but they have your money and that’s the last thing you have and that money is your daughter, man! They’re taking the last thing that represents her! I’ll be back in a second.” And he was like, “Fuck them! Fuck them! FUCK THEM!” He was just mouthing all of these hate words toward them. Then all I had to do was scream action and let the leash go.
Don’t Breathe is must-see material, and from the sound of it, you don’t want to piss Lang off!
