[On his character from The Station Agent]
Bobby Cannavale: The part was written for me by Tom McCarthy. For almost ten years we were really good friends and, when he started writing it, he called me and asked me little things like, you know, 'Give me the name of a Cuban dish. Tell me about the culture.' But I would say, one sort of thing we had in common is I'm very talky and inquisitive and sort of relentless that way. For me, the work part of it was trying to identify with this guy's loneliness. I was really impressed with how, sort of on the surface, he didn't seem like a lonely person at all. That's what I loved about it.
