After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail in Edgar Wright’s BABY DRIVER.
BABY DRIVER stars Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”), Lily James (Cinderella), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”), Jamie Foxx (Sleepless) and Eiza Gonzalez (“From Dusk til Dawn”). This lineup doesn’t disappoint me. I just finished binge-watching “House of Cards” which I only ever started watching because of Kevin Spacey. Add Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx to the the group and you have my attention. However, I’m looking forward to seeing the Latina act with this already great cast – Eiza Gonzalez.
Wright agreed and says about Eiza, “She’s a total knockout, and very sweet, very funny, but when she turns her edge on, she’s terrifying. It’s a similar thing that you get with Jon (Hamm) and Eiza in the movie. They seem like the nice ones, but when they themselves are threatened, their lashing out is really scary to watch.”
“I loved how Darling was such a unique character who is crazy and a little disconnected with reality, which I think every criminal has to be able to accomplish dangerous activities like bank heists or killing people. You definitely have to be a little bit disconnected. But I loved how she was still very feminine,” says Gonzalez.
To prepare for the role Gonzalez explains, “I really wanted to represent a woman who understands this world, so I got into researching Candice Martinez, dubbed ‘The Cell Phone Bandit’ for always talking on her phone during her robberies. It was important for me to try to understand someone’s motivations behind choosing this lifestyle, so I read a lot about her and listened to her story and her background and where she was coming from.”
