Set in the 1970’s “The Nice Guys,” a film by Shane Black, captures the funk, comedy and action. The film has an all star cast that includes but not limited to Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling and Matt Bomer. The movie held it’s press junket in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
EURweb Associate Kiki Ayers hit the scene to talk to Bomer who plays “John Boy” along with Margaret Qualley who plays Amelia and Angourie Rice who plays Holly. They spoke on the there favorite part about acting in a film that goes back in time to the 70’s.
“I love the soundtrack, I love the wardrobe, the period cars and the relevance it has today,” he said. There was a great deal of sort of socio political corruption that was starting to boil over the surface that we certainly see in this day and age as well.”
Rice, who is only 15, plays Ryan Gosling’s daughter in the movie. Her character Holly is a realist who tells it how it is, even to her dad who she calls the “world’s worst detective” in the movie. Her favorite part about participating in this movie was the fashion from the 70’s.
“I love fashion and seeing all the different fabrics and the way things were designed” she said. “A lot of things were original 1970’s costumes so that was cool.”
With an all star cast, that meant all star fun and according to Bomer it didn’t even feel like work at all so much to the point that he never even called it work. His character “John Boy” kicks ass in the movie and he enjoyed taking on this role from the weapons training to fight scenes with Gosling and Crowe.
