Interview: The First Time’s Britt Robertson

Apparently actress Britt Robertson likes a good challenge. Writer-director Jon Kasdan’s feature “The First Time” is basically an hour and a half of Robertson and Dylan O’Brien discussing their relationship woes, falling for one another and then talking about how they feel about each other.

Robertson plays Aubrey, a high school student dating an older guy (James Frencheville), who bumps into Dave (O’Brien) at a party. Dave’s busy stressing over how to approach his longtime crush (Victoria Justice), Aubrey gives him some pointers, one thing leads to another and the two come to realize that they understand each other far more than the people they’re chasing.

With so much dialogue and so much riding on the performances, the film could have gone either way and Robertson knew it. But she also knew that Kasdan had a firm handle on the story and the production, creating a prime environment for bringing out the best from the cast. With the film due out in theaters on October 19th, Robertson took the time to tell us all about the challenges and rewards of making “The First Time.” She also touched on her upcoming project, “The Delivery Man,” as well as the exit of her CW show, “The Secret Circle.”

Read about that and much more in our interview with Robertson below.

Interview: The Family Tree’s Dermot Mulroney

We get our fair share of dysfunctional families on the big screen, but very few to the extent of the Burnetts in The Family Tree. Dermot Mulroney stars as the papa bear, Jack. When his wife, Bunnie (Hope Davis), gets knocked out during some naughty and unfaithful role-playing, Jack finds her at the hospital unable to remember anything that happened after they were married. While trying to bring Bunnie up-to-date, Jack also must keep an eye on his gun-loving and borderline religious fanatic of a son, Eric (Max Thieriot), and his daughter, Kelly (Britt Robertson), who’s enjoying exploring her romantic options.

In honor of The Family Tree’s August 26th release in New York and Los Angeles, Mulroney took the time to talk a bit about making the film. With dozens of titles to his name, Mulroney’s experience working on set has undoubtedly changed over the years. Sure, some things are tougher as there tend to be fewer resources to go around, but the additional pressure also keeps the cast and crew on their toes, propelling their effort to bring the audience the best possible final product.

Check out what Mulroney had to say about re-teaming with his good friend Hope Davis, overcoming his past troubles learning the lines, what he’s working on next and much more in the interview below.
