Adam Driver appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night (November 20) to talk all about his anticipated new film, Marriage Story!
In the film, the 35-year-old actor sings “Being Alive” from the musical Company, and revealed to Seth that at one point he and writer-director Noah Baumbach considered doing a film version of the musical, before Marriage Story came to light.
“At one point we thought about doing a movie of Company,” Adam said. “If you know the musical, it seems like maybe it lends itself to a film. It’s kind of abstract.”
Adam goes on to say that Baumbach put “Being Alive” into Marriage Story all on his own: “Where he puts it in, I don’t want to give anything away, I thought was just a beautiful piece of writing,” he said. “And similar to great musical theatre, it’s not just a song for the sake of it. Hopefully you learn something about the character. By the end he’s transformed into something else.”
Adam Driver also talked about his only line in a production of Oklahoma, researching his role for Amazon’s political drama The Report, and choosing his audition pieces for Juilliard.
