David Warner talks about his “Random Roles” at the AV Club. “The A.V. Club: The reason this interview came to pass is because it was pitched to you by Lin-Manuel Miranda while you two were chatting on the set of Mary Poppins Returns.
David Warner: Yes, and he was very enthusiastic! We were on the set, and he came over to me, and he started to talk about a film I’d been in, much to my surprise. And then he mentioned you, and he said, “I’m going to try and get Will to talk to you,” and then he explained what you did, and then I said, “Of course I’ll do that.” Now, I don’t always enjoy it. [Laughs.] No, you know, it just starts to get tiring sometimes. But it’s great to have communication with my friends across the ocean, so what can I tell you?”
