I got a call at my apartment in New York City with a Los Angeles area code. I pick up and it was Diego Luna. I was slated to chat with him regarding Elysium, his new futuristic, politically charged project where he plays Julio, the best friend of Matt Damon’s character Max. He sounds like he is walking the streets of L.A., a deduction I make due to the fact he people keep saying hello to him. A little later the distractions stop and we commence our conversation which ranges from directing Matt Damon in the future, his terrible movies which he loves to the Americas uniting together to create one big ass country. Oh, and we tackle the most consequential question, to me at least… when the hell is he and Gael García Bernal shooting another movie?
