Kyle Chandler's First Interview with Martin Scorsese Was 'Interesting'



(Jim Wright/Corbis Outline)

The Emmy winner, 48, plays an FBI agent in Martin Scorsese’s film The Wolf of Wall Street.

Did you meet the real agent who brought down Leonardo DiCaprio’s character?

We met at FBI headquarters in New York. He told me, “Anyone I go after, it’s not personal. I don’t have animosities toward people. It’s my job.” That was interesting.

How did you get Scorsese to cast you?

Same way I always get a job: I send a big check and say, “Please can I have an audition?” [Laughs] No, I met Martin at a hotel, and the fire alarms went off, so that was interesting to begin with. It was a quick interview; some people you just get along with really easily.

Do fans still recognize you from Friday Night Lights?

People say, “Hey, Coach! How you doing?”

What made you leave L.A. for Austin with your wife and daughters?

It came out of Friday Night Lights. I lived in Georgia growing up and I was excited to get back to a rural area. You can think a little bit more.
