Larry recently talked to John Jurgensen from the Wall Street Journal about Whatever Works. In comparing his and Woody’s comedy, he said:
I am not nearly as ambitious or as smart as he is. I’m dealing pretty much with what people have to deal with in their everyday lives. I don’t take on big things. What I do, pretty much, is make the big things small and the small things big. It’s a comedic device. That works for me.
Mali Elfman from Screencave also recently covered a press conference that Larry attended for the film with co-stars Evan Rachel Wood and Patricia Clarkson:
Did you hang our with a lot of Jewish people to prepare for the role?
Clarkson: I mean you never do that.
David: I’ve never done that. So, yes, that aspect was really unusual. I tried to find as many Jews as I could and be-friend them and talk to them and see what made them tick.
Clarkson: Didn’t you go back and you were bar mitzvah-ed again?
David: Oh, my God (laughing). I went back to Brooklyn and walked the streets and interviewed people, what’s it like being a Jew? How do you behave?
