MTV.com has a great interview with Tobin Bell, star of the Saw franchise. Bell reveals to the MTV reporter that he keeps journals for every movie he’s in. Bell says,
I write all kinds of stream-of-consciousness things that help me. This usually starts to happen right after I’ve read the script and goes on through filming, up until the final shot. I have a shelf full of these books at home, for every role I’ve ever done, each with the name of the film written on the spine. I ask myself five questions all the time: ‘Who am I?’ ‘Where am I?’ ‘What do I want?’ ‘When do I want it?’ ‘And how am I going to get it?’
The level of dedication Bell shows his craft shines through in each Saw flick, and is precisely what keeps me, and everyone else, coming back for more.
Saw IV comes out this Friday, October 26th. Saw V and Saw VI have been announced.
