Emily Mortimer On Asa Butterfield’s Performance In ‘10,000 Saints’

Actress Emily Mortimer stopped by to talk about her latest film 10,000 Saints starring Ethan Hawke, Asa Butterfield and Emile Hirsch.

This is the second time Mortimer has worked with Butterfield and she commented on his performance in 10,000 Saints.

“He’s an incredible actor. You take one look at him on screen and those blues, it’s just like, he kind of is cinema in a way,” said Mortimer.

10,000 Saints will be in theaters and on demand August 14.


The conversation led to her sitcom on HBO, Doll & Em in which Mortimer heads to Hollywood, closely followed by best friend Dolly Wells as her assistant. Wells is her life long best friend.

We joked about if Mortimer and Wells argued over who would shag Ewan McGregor in season two.

“I did get a little bit jealous on the set when she (Dolly) was making out with Ewan McGregor,” said Mortimer.

The second season of Doll & Em will premiere on HBO in September.

Bonus track: Should Marvel make a Blade Netflix series or a fourth film?
