Patrick Heusinger Interview
Published: Oct 24, 2016, 7:00 pm
Harper’s BAZAAR: Tell me about your character in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Patrick Heusinger: My character is called The Hunter. He’s the main antagonist in the movie. In a nutshell, he’s a slightly deranged natural born killer who’s weirdly determined to succrime comedy-dramahatever his employment is. He’s a mercenary and there’s a high body count for him in this film. He’s kind of what Jack Reacher would have become if he didn’t stay on the moral high ground. They were both in the army, they were both probably army rangers, he was on his way to getting a major-type position like Jack Reacher, then he probably had a poor psych evaluation one day and was discharged for fear that he might do something unruly on the battlefield. I think my guy sort of fell in love with making money but was also very good at handling these sorts of jobs and doing special ops work. It’s one of those things where he gets back after serving in Afghanistan for so long and he only knows how to do one thing. He also has no allegiance to the country, where Jack Reacher is completely dedicated to the integrity of the system here in the United States.
HB: Was this your first time taking on the role of a villain?
PH: I had done a little bit one other time. This character [in Jack Reacher] is a psychopath, but I had been hired by Carlton Cuse and Randall Wallace (Carlton Cuse was the showrunner for Lost, he created The Strain, and then Randall Wallace wrote Braveheart, among other things) for a Civil War pilot they did for Amazon. It didn’t go forward, but they had hired me to be their lead villain in that show and the character was a sociopath, which I had never played before. I went into very deep research as to what exactly that meant and how sociopaths function psychologically and within the world. Sociopaths are more complicated psychopaths; the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath is a sociopath is incredibly charming. There are a lot of sociopaths that are CEOs. They don’t necessarily kill people but they’re able to walk into a big social function and make everybody think they’re the kindest, coolest, smartest, most interesting person in the room. But their entire purpose in every conversation is to manipulate people into getting what they want. Psychopaths don’t have that charming skill set. They definitely manipulate, but they do it through focused, unskilled means. They’re more obsessive. A sociopath can imitate emotions, where a psychopath really doesn’t have that capacity. They can’t fool people into thinking anything and they’re usually lacking major empathy for anybody besides themselves.
HB: In addition to all this research to get you in the mindset of the character, how did you prep physically?
PH: I had just come off of doing a play in Los Angeles which actually got me the role. It was called Bent and it was at the Mark Taper Forum. I was playing a homosexual from 1930 to 1934 Berlin who is eventually put into a concentration camp for the second half of the play. I had lost about 38 pounds for that; I had come into the role at about 205 pounds after doing an action role for live-action material for this X-Box video game called Quantum Break. I then got the play and lost 38 pounds. Then when I came on to Jack Reacher, I had just taken my girlfriend on vacation and ate everything I could. I put on about 15 pounds, so when I met [the Jack Reacher team] I was clocking in at about 180. They looked at me and were like, “You’re just gonna lose five pounds, we’re gonna keep you skinny.” It’s a conversation I have a lot because I change myself a lot. Some roles you don’t want to be a big, bulky, muscle-y guy and some roles you want to be a lean, marathon-runner physical type. And some roles you just don’t want to be in shape. When I did Casual, I just let myself put on weight because he’s a schoolteacher. He’s not meant to be muscle-y. But for this role [in Jack Reacher] they wanted him to be lean, mean, very sinewy, and it added a cool effect because my face for most of the film is very—not quite gaunt—but it has a sort of sunken feel. It’s incredible how insane I look. I actually look like a bad guy. When I look at myself in the mirror, I don’t see the bad guy.
HB: Does changing your body help you get into character?
PH: For a role like this, I think it does. This is a guy who’s completely obsessed with his job and to stay in the kind of shape they wanted me in, I had to be the same. I’m not a method actor but it certainly does help to have that kind of dedication. I treated my preparation as I was in the military. I didn’t go out ever. I went out for drinks probably twice in five months. I lived very monastically, which is the way this guy would. That was sort of fun to get into, to wake up every morning and work out and watch every single thing I’m putting in my body so I could be clearheaded and prepared for this grueling shoot. But for some roles, like when I was doing Bent, that was harder and I didn’t find that helpful because I was so calorie deprived, my brain wasn’t getting food. I was eating with the help of a nutritionist so I was definitely putting in the appropriate calories and vitamins and minerals into my body; however, it was still so little that if I had the tiniest piece of sugar, my brain would go crazy. If I had some alcohol during the run of that play, my brain would go crazy. I would end up not being as focused or as clearheaded as I would have liked to be during the run of the performances. I would lose those quality impulses that you lean on when you’re acting because of malnutrition. basically. But I looked skinny. There’re pictures I have of an opening night where I’m standing next to friends and I look sickly, dangerously skinny.
HB: How long did that play run for?
PH: June through August of last year. It was a very exciting production. The director, Moisés Kaufman, just received the national medal of the arts from President Obama this year. He wrote and directed The Laramie Project and he has directed several Pulitzer Prize-winning plays. He’s a pretty profound director in the theater. It was neat because the role I played was originated by Ian McKellen in 1979 and he came. I didn’t know he was there and I walked out at the end of the play, which is a very intense play—my character is required to do some really horrible things—and the director was waiting backstage and he goes, “Obviously I didn’t want to tell you guys, but Ian was here today” and we, of course, freaked out. I was standing by the stage door and he walked right up and started crying and gave me a hug. He said some really beautiful, kind things, one of which was, “It’s so much harder to watch than it is to do.”
