"Luke is a guy who has this dark and mysterious past. He’s seen and done everything, and had everything happen to him. He’s damaged, wounded— a person who was kind of covered, not necessarily in scars, but in these tattoos that were signs of the pain he had experienced. On the outside, he had this mythical presence—the kind of guy that 1960’s girl groups like the Shangri-La’s used to sing about. He’s a bit of a contradiction – wounded and scarred on the inside, but with a wall of armor on the outside, the muscles, the tattoos, the hair, the charisma, etc. He’s like a big cat in a small cage – abused and dangerous and utterly compelling."
—Derek Cianfrance about the character Luke Glanton
I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person … I only met him two years ago when we did Crazy, Stupid, Love, but it was like meeting a member of your team or something. I really like his brain … I immediately felt a kinship with him.
You think this is easy for me?
All my characters are me. I’m not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think ‘I wonder what that feels like.’ Because for me, they’re all me.

It’s tough with Emma because we are such knuckleheads, and we have to be serious, especially as we got to know each other on a comedy.
