Dominic West: I have many years experience of binge drinking. I always play drunks. I don't know why. But I always seem to get cast as drunks. And the nice thing about this one was that I'm usually a drunk jerk, and in this one I'm a drunk jerk, but he redeems himself and becomes a hero, you know. Usually, I play the drunk jerk who, you know, is sufficiently awful for the girl to dump him. So it was nice this time to actually end up being a hero.
