Taylor Kitsch is earning praise from some fans and entertainment observers over the news that he reportedly 'butted heads' with co-star Vince Vaughn on the set of "True Detective". Often a talented younger actor will allow an older, more experienced, bigger name actor to run roughshod over them during filming or just while on set and if an actor is not willing to show they are not intimidated by the past successes of the actor it will show in their performance.
It seems that the talented Canadian actor was extremely excited at the prospect of meeting the renowned comedic actor who he admired greatly and as such tried to get some laughs with him but Vince Vaughn had no interest and according to some reports was at times a diva on set who people had difficulty working with (Celebrity Dirty Laundry - May 29).
The reports that they butted heads is no surprise to some entertainment observers as Taylor Kitsch is an actor whose struggle to make it as an actor is one which included a short time span being homeless in New York and as such the likelihood that he would back down from any actor irrespective of their reputation is unlikely.
Moreover, Vince Vaughn at forty-five years old is attempting to show the entertainment world that he has serious 'dramatic' chops to go along with his renowned comedic skills and thus not only was the situation 'ripe' for conflict but some fans on social media think it was something that quietly made the directors pleased.
The preference on a film set is for actors to be able to be able to play their roles and then 'flick a switch' and become nice, normal people but sometimes, tension and focus can bring out some sterling performances. The fact that during filming of this very popular crime tv show there was conflict on the set between the ex-Friday Night Lights star and an actor he admires bodes well for the on-screen product and has enhanced his reputation as an actor who believes in his abilities and will not be intimidated by anyone.
Taylor Kitsch by 'butting heads' with Vince Vaughn has earned the praise of fans and some filmmakers as an actor who does not defer to other actors no matter how much he respects them or their reputation.
