Albert Brooks and the cast talk about Bernie Rose in Drive

Albert Brooks talks about his character Bernie Rose in Drive.

Albert Brooks: Bernie spent his life dealing in legal to illegal situations, depending on how he wants to make his money.

Marc Platt: For Albert Brooks to play a gangster. And a guy who has his own anger and can lash out and kill within an instant, is fascinating to watch.

It gives me something that I've never played before. Which is a guy you really don't wanna fool around with.

Adam Siegel: Any idea that Bernie Rose isn't just your stock villain, but somebody who you feel mournful for. Who you care about. Who like drivers and men with a back against this wall. That's a challenging thing to do.

Nicolas is doing it differently.

Nicolas Winding Refn: Very much spent time to really build him up as a nemesis of Driver. You know. This is his Lex Luthor.

Gigi Pritzker: You don't realize, what a bad guy he is until the film starts unfolding.

I don't know how much to give away, but let's just say I've never killed anyone in a movie before.

Ryan Gosling: I also didn't think he'd would wanna play a character that was so violent and that's so dark. But he really wanted to play that character. I mean, his first day at worked he called me. And he was like, Ryan, I think I killed somebody at my first day of work. I'm Bernie Rose. Watch out.
