In The Great Buck Howard, Colin Hanks (King Kong, Orange County) plays the newly-hired road manager to the title mentalist and performer (played by John Malkovich); Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, Dan in Real Life) plays the publicist assigned to Buck's not-quite-comeback tour. Hanks and Blunt spoke with Cinematical at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival about working opposite Malkovich, the wonder and terror of show business, and the gap between their on-screen romantic scenes and the off-screen preparation for them. As Hanks explains, "At one point (The Great Buck Howard's writer-director Sean McGinley) had us rehearse (romantic scenes) on a dirty floor in an abandoned office, and I remember thinking 'Yeah, I don't know if this is going to do anything ... I don't know if this is going to help us.'"
