I did a quick sitdown this afternoon with Zero Dark Thirty star and guaranteed Best Actress contender Jessica Chastain (“Maya”) and costar Jason Clarke (“Dan,” the likable, even-keel CIA torture-and-Lamborghini-buying guy). Alert and yet settled, easy to talk to, right on it…snap. This is their third film together, having previously costarred in Lawless and Texas Killing Fields. I’ll be hitting the ZDT premiere and after-party tonight for more of this. Again, the mp3.
