Paul Talked About Little Miss Sunshine

Paul played the role of Dwayne Hoover in a movie called Little Miss Sunshine in 2006

He shared he was 18 years old when he auditioned for the movie, and when he came to LA, he had to meet the directors Jonathan Dayton and Valeri Faris as they would check him if he looked too old for the movie. 

He said he knew his character well, and it reminded him of his one particular friend while he was doing that part. 

He said the first scene they ever shot was the family dinner scene where the whole family was there, and they used two cameras around them. 

He said in that scene, a lot of taking was happening. He was trying to communicate with them without talking. 

He said he did enjoyable in-character rehearsals. 

He said he has many memories from that movie, one being stuck in a hot van with Alan Arkin

He said Steve Careel was the funniest and loveliest guy on set. 

Paul Lied To His Father About Playing The Riddler

He shared that he got a work call on a weekend and was backing out from the driveway with his wife next to him. 

His father was also there in the back seat. 

There was a call from his agent on Bluetooth, but he did not want to pick that up as it was the weekend. 

But his spouse insisted he pick up his call. 

He answered the call, and his agent told him that Matt Reeves wanted to talk to him about playing The Riddler in Batman

He just said okay and hung up the phone. His wife was worried, and he told her they wanted him to play The Riddler

He didn’t want to tell his father about that as he was not entirely sure that he got that part, and if he broke that news to him, he was scared that his father would leak that news to everyone around him. 

They were on a car ride for two hours, and he and his wife were whispering things to each other, and his father had no idea what they were talking about. 

He said when he went to his parent's house, his father was trying to figure out what was going on in his life online, but he didn’t get any information from that. 

A week later, he finally told his father.

Paul Struggled With His Riddler Costume

Paul said that the first thing he told his agent after he was done reading the script of Batman was there was no green spandex in that one. 

He said the script blew him away, and his character was fascinating. 

He said he wrapped himself in cling wrap, which looked scary. 

He said on the first day of shooting, after an hour, he started seeing white and colors, and his brain was getting tight because his head was fully wrapped. 

They made holes in that wrap the next day so he could breathe.
