“The Robin Hood of Collingwood”
MovieSet.com Exclusive: From the set of ‘The Irishman‘ in Detroit comes a MovieSet exclusive video featuring actor Ray Stevenson who plays the lead character Danny Greene in this real-life story of a mafia conflict in Cleveland.
Amongst clips of the on-set action, Mr. Stevenson discusses the personality of his character saying he was a loner but also very charismatic. He points out that people called Greene “the Robin Hood of Collingwood” as he gave away turkeys at Thanksgiving and Christmas to show that, “It wasn’t about the money, there was a higher goal.”
Stevenson points out that, (unlike other gangster movies) “… these people actually have lives so it kinda matters when they die - even though they are on the wrong side of the law.”
He discusses Greene’s style including green suits, green pens and the importance of the costumes in the film. Finally Stevenson points out the exceptional script which attracted him to the project and gives credit to the entire crew of The Irishman saying, “this film belongs to everyone from the drivers to the people who made the food.”
