Tribeca Interview: Every Day’s Richard Levine

Jump to Comments

Superheroes, maniacal serial killers and historical figures brought back to life are great, but sometimes you just need a good old family drama that feels real and Every Day is just that. Our family of four, played by Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt, Ezra Miller and Skyler Fortgang, take on a hefty load when grandpa Ernie (Brian Dennehy) comes to live with them. That’s on top of routine troubles, like work frustrations and struggles with sexual identity, all of which send the clan into an amusing and often touching period of confusion and frustration.

You’d never think this type of story would come from the pen of Nip/Tuck writer Richard Levine. Levine does away with the profound happenings at the plastic surgery practice and adopts a far more true-to-life tone. In fact, Every Day is somewhat true-to-life in Levine’s case; much of the piece evolved from his experience with his own family.

While promoting his film at the Tribeca Film Festival, Levine took the time to elaborate on the film’s connection with his personal life as well as the casting process, an unusual method of rehearsal as well as his upcoming ABC show, Scoundrels. Take a look at what he had to say below.
