Q: You also had a small role in the biggest movie of the year, Guardians of the Galaxy, as John C. Reilly’s partner. Did you have any idea it would such huge success? Obviously it was a big budget Marvel movie, but it was a largely unknown property. A: I didn’t know. I had no idea. I knew they were marketing it. When I came on board, it was just for reshoots. Originally, it was going to be a scene or two that I had auditioned for, but when the day came around, they decided not to shoot those. So ultimately I ended up with the role I ended up in, which was disappointing because it would have been fun to banter back and forth with those guys.But at the same time, I look at it as an opportunity, one that provided me with a day’s work and to observe guys like John and Chris [Pratt], who have been doing it for a long time and are successful, and to see what a big machine that whole universe is. It’s one you put away in your memory bank and use it as ammunition and inspiration to continue to get better. Hopefully I’ll be given the opportunity to say a couple of lines one day [laughs] or have my own Marvel film!There's also another interview via Shock ya discussing 'Zarra's Law' here at the source.
ShockYa (SY): You star as Gaetano in the new crime drama, ‘Zarra’s Law.’ What was it about the character, and the script overall, that convinced you to take on the role? Brendan Fehr (BF): I was drawn to the opportunity to play such an interesting character. To be able to play a New York Italian was something I never really envisioned for myself. So to figure out who the character was helped stretch me as an actor. I’m a West Coast kid, but people always know someone from New York. So to be able to try to capture their vibe, and to see how close I could get to playing them correctly, was a challenge.

Q: Your new film Zarra’s Law is based on a true story; in a role like this do you feel there’s more pressure playing a real life character? A: I know it was based on real guys that the writer knew, but we had taken so many creative liberties that we had always thought of it as doing it our own way so this was one where there wasn’t too much pressure. Obviously you have the script as your template and you take what the character is going through as far as situations and relationships and try and make it as authentic as possible.
