Anthony Hopkins (The Rite)
Anthony Hopkins - The Rite Interview
Veteran actor Anthony Hopkins was fascinated by the script for his latest film, The Rite, and the fact that the events in the film were based on real life experiences. Hopkins plays a priest in Rome performing exorcisms and it becomes his job to show a young skeptical priest from America how it's done. It's a daunting and physical role for Hopkins, who knows his way around a scary role -- remember Hannibal Lecter?
Tribute's Bonnie Laufer spoke with Anthony in Los Angeles about why he was so drawn to this film, what movies scare him and what film inspired his long and varied career.
