[Movies] Dominic Cooper Talks About Playing The Villain In Need for Speed
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.14.2014



In an interview with Coming Soon, Dominic Cooper spoke about playing Dino Brewster, the villain of Need for Speed. Here are highlights:

On the sadness of Dino: "I think that's absolutely it. I think he was always that guy who was on the scene, but he wasn't actually genuinely talented with it. He came from a place unlike other people in that area. I think he came from a place of privilege. The people I know that are like that are the slightly lost ones, because they haven't had to fight for anything. He just didn't have any actual talent. Real talent. True talent. He's a bit sad. It's him and his turtleneck and him thinking he's really cool. They mock him and his snakeskin boots. It's very good that you saw that, because I think he is the outsider who has surrounded himself with very fast cars and musclemen to protect him. So yeah, he is exactly that. He's very sad."

On driving the cars: "I love driving them. I grew up loving cars. It was part of me growing up. To be offered the opportunity to be in a film where I could actually race them and learn how to control them was a complete non-brainer for me. This was my dream."

On the difference between playing a hero and a villain: "Yeah, that's great. I think a lot of people can do that, you just have to be careful with not being one too much. Then people can only see you as that. If you have played someone extraordinarily villainous, your face can get associated with that. But it's also about a certain look. It's quite frightening, actually, to be offered these villain roles. It means you must look slightly terrifying or that you're capable of looking quite evil. But it's great fun to be able to play someone with that many layers. Often you're playing a scene and you're saying one thing, but you're thinking something completely the opposite. Your intent in that scene is something completely different from what you're playing, and that's really fun to play against."
