Dennis Quaid has a new interview with Now Toronto to promote his upcoming movie ‘At Any Price’, which just premiered at the Toronto International Film festival. Quaid talks about quitting smoking, his new movie, and making smaller movies away from the studio system.
When asked about using an E-cig during the interview and whether it works, Quaid replies, ““It works for me.”
‘At Any Price’ is directed by Rahmin Bahrani, who is considered one of the best art house directors of this decade. Quaid talks about watching all of Bahrani’s films, and says, ““The boy in Chop Shop is about 13, and he's a non-actor. He gives this incredible performance. (I said) if you can get a performance out of me like that, that’s what I want to do.”
He also adds that this is a smaller film, saying, “Small stories. It’s something that you don’t find in the business anymore. Movies have mostly gone to big tent poles that the studios are making. This is a film that is about something.”
Quaid has most recently leaned away from making big-budget movies, and has been making smaller, character oriented films as well as going back to television. He is set to appear in the new TV series ‘Vegas’.
