Interview with Vincent D'Onofrio, 8.5.09
By Leo Haddad

It's your big comeback in the cinema ...

Great, I do not know. My little back ... I have a lot more time now. My children grew up, except the youngest, who is the infant, and in New York Criminal Section, I am more than half the episodes, since the work is shared with Jeff Goldblum now. It allows me to say yes to new film projects that interest me, as Little New York. Nine years ago, it was the opposite, I wanted to ask me a little, have a stable job and structured. In the evening, I was at home, I am paid very well, the hearings were so strong.

It is a release?

No, I can not say that, because it was a choice. I am told often that I went very close to being a film star and that it is as if I had done everything to not become one. That, I do not know, but what is certain is that I have no regrets. Some of my friends have this life there, and I do not want for anything. A player is constantly surrounded by people behavior denatured. As in the fable of the Emperor naked? He did not his clothes but everyone acts as if nothing had happened for not angry. Travel to the four corners, festivals, girls. This is not my thing. I do not have the personality for it.

Little in New York, you put the character in a scene, the first, simply by the way you eat pistachios by interviewing a poor guy who owes you money ...

Yes, that's what I like. I had my first real role in the past, and I remember most of the time it took and how it was boring. Several weeks of filming for a role! No, what I land it, do my number a few days, touch something in a few sequences, and leave. The structure of quasi film sketch Little New York allows that. I appear, I have a time and a very limited part to create my character, and bam!, I turn to something else.

It is ironic for a guy who has long been top billing on TV ...

Yes, I know, but it is not the same thing. On a film shooting is what suits me best, if not, I'm soon to die.

Like the extremes, and this figure mafia at bay is a perfect illustration of this idea: it tries to beat the diving competition at the bottom of the pool and eventually perched on a tree to prevent than it shot ...

Yes, the script was written like that, the story of a "rise" in a spiritual sense of the term, but also a little farcesque. The metaphor is interesting, and I loved the scenes to turn the shaft. I was literally perched up there several days and I had an experience hallucinatory, close to that of the character who finally finds meaning in his life and a real cause to defend.
