Only ET Canada was invited to the set of John Travolta’s new movie “Moose”, directed by none other than Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst who is earning nothing but praise from his star.
“I think Fred did an extraordinary job writing this and directing,” Travolta tells ET Canada’s Roz Weston on the Los Angeles set of the movie. “He’s a top artist. This guy is the real deal. He has the qualities and attributes that all the great directors have.”
In the drama, Travolta transforms into a mullet-wearing obsessed fan who is stalking his favourite actor, Hunter Dunbar, played by Devon Sawa. And Travolta can’t get enough of the Canadian actor’s performance.
“He’s so earnest about his love for the Hunter Dunbar character who Devon Sawa plays so brilliantly,” Travolta says. “He plays this egocentric horror movie star that my character is obsessed with. It’s such a great interpretation he’s done.”
The 64-year-old actor, who earned praise for his turn as Robert Shapiro in “American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson”, says his role as the rabid fan in “Moose” is unlike anything he’s taken on over his near five-decade career.
“This movie and this performance [are] like nothing I have seen before and I just haven’t read a script this interesting in years,” he says. “I couldn’t wait to do it and it’s been a long time since I couldn’t wait to do something.”
