Vince Desi of Running with Scissors Talks about POSTAL
Recently I got the chance to talk with Running With Scissors CEO Vince Desi about playing Krotchky in the upcoming Uwe Boll film Postal as well as his experiences on and off the set.
I want to thank Vince for taking the time for the interview as well as all the support and fun moments we had on set.
GVK: Tell me about the role you play please.
Vince: The movie is basically Uwe’s adoption of our game POSTAL, and I play myself and the Postal game character Krotchy.. And well Krotchy is all about balls.
GVK: Aside from your work in the games, have you done any other acting work in the past?
Vince: Never a feature film like POSTAL, only an NYU film project many years ago.
GVK: You seemed to fit the costume well, what can you tell the readers about how the design came about and what your thoughts on the look of the suit are as well as your experiences wearing the costume?
Vince: It was a real funny experience, first thing from getting picked up at the airport was straight to the costume department, the balls fit fine, but the cock head was too small. I was in that suit for 2 days, I got real comfortable in it, and most enjoyable was hanging out with the crew, I’m a lot more comfortable with blue collar folks than I am with actors.
GVK: The film has a lot of action in it. What are your thoughts on the sets and action, and how did you attempt to balance the all out action while wearing a bulky suit in selling the part?
Vince: The script changed from when I last seen it, and I had no idea I was even going to still be in the movie, let alone be hiding in the Krotchy suit as I attempt to kill Uwe Boll. I loved the action stuff, fighting with Uwe and then falling off the stage, the professional stunt folks were all great, they let me practice so that helped a lot. I just kept telling myself I’m a cock I can do anything.
GVK: What was working with Uwe like and how was the creative process with your character? Did you get much feedback into the part?
Vince: Uwe was very easy to work with, he knows what he wants yet he allowed me and most the actors to improvise their lines. When I read the script I knew it wasn’t right, I was playing myself and I don’t talk like it was in the script, so I just said my peace my way and it all worked fine.
GVK: What sort of preparation did you do for playing the part?
Vince: I was playing a pissed off video game developer, myself, this is pretty close to who I am so once I got over the fact that I was in cock and ball costume it was easy. Ever since I was a young kid I’ve always been a horny fuck so even the costume was a natural fit.
GVK: What are some of the funny moments you had on set?
Vince: Truthfully I mostly enjoyed that no one really knew who I was, they all thought I was some actor playing this crazy role, then as the crew and the cast found our that I was really playing myself, and that I was the Executive Producer, it made it all the better, I’m still laughing my ass off.
GVK: During your free time in Vancouver how did you spend your time?
