Exclusive Hesher Video Interviews


When tragedy strikes the family of 13-year-old TJ (Devin Brochu), his father (Rainn Wilson) retreats into severe depression and the kid is left alone in an unforgiving world with no way to rebuild. Enter Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed heavy metal nihilist who shows up out of the blue and soon, along with Nicole (Natalie Portman), a girl who works at the grocery store, becomes the only person that TJ can count on.

ComingSoon.net spoke exclusively with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson and writer/director Spencer Susser about the unusual take on a very personal story and how the best way to achieve realistic characters is to aim for bigger-than-life.

Hesher hits theaters this Friday, May 13th.
