    “I thought casting Mel Gibson was a great idea but a long shot,” Golin says, ‘because Mel hadn’t done this kind of film before. But Foster submitted the script, and two or three days later he told her he wanted to do it. At first I thought he was kidding, it was just one of those things I didn’t think was possible.”
        
    But it was. In fact, it was a perfect match.

    Foster says, “He’s such a talented actor. I feel amazingly blessed to have somebody like that who really took on the character, brought so much to it and no muss, no fuss.  You know, he came in and it was two takes then he left. That’s who Mel is. I think probably the most light of foot actor I’ve ever worked with in some ways.”
        
    “Gibson has this unusual ability to be really funny in a serious situation,’ Golin says, “and he has a tremendous amount of energy as an actor. I think that’s important because, despite its comic elements, the nature of the script is dramatic and dark. But I think the humor he brings is a perfect balance.”


    The critically acclaimed film will be shown exclusively at Ayala Mall Cinemas (Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3 and Trinoma) starting August 10.
