So finding him in a deep enough way where I could feel like I was living inside of him, rather than getting in front of a camera…trying to impress people….finding that subtlety and that humanity, which was there in the writing and needed to be there in the performance.

Tim: To quote Bryan Stevenson, ” You are not defined by your worst moments.”. “I look at it as a journey that this character takes and a very coherent one, however surprising,” he told theGrio during our exclusive interview.

The Movie Blog: What brought you to the [Just Mercy] project? Morgan plays Herbert Richardson, a death row inmate who killed someone while suffering from PTSD after serving in Vietnam. Then what I didn’t know – I kind of knew on paper but I didn’t really know at the time – the wonderful team that was going to come together to tell this story from Michael B Jordan, who I’d known from afar, but to actually be able to work with him up close and personal to Destin Daniel Cretton, to Michael as a producer and actor and then to Destin as a writer, co-writer and director with Andrew, and then the cast I was just surrounded by excellence and masterclasses. I think it continues to evolve the changes that are happening. Cretton is directing and co-wrote the script with Andrew Lanham. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie.

I just remember thinking “go deeper and be fearless”…So it wasn’t about getting bigger to your point and trying to present, but just really understanding to her core what’s going on and why she’s making these choices, and how she’s connected to people….I think that was the challenge and the joy of the journey really and in sharing her story. It made the character very sympathetic to me as an actor.”. Tim: Like with Karan it started with being a part of telling Brian Stevenson story and I would have participated in that…I guess the bar was low in terms of the part I would get to play in telling Brian’s story with a guy like Destin directing. never talked bad about him. Then there’s Destin who’s an extraordinary director and an extraordinary human being and, as Karan said, all the actors who were aggregating around this project starting with Michael [B. Jordan] made it simply irresistible. [I] always accepted phone calls, cards…always loved him from a distance as it was convenient…. I don’t think you can experience this film and not be changed… and definitely and working on it that’s one of the ways that it changed me. “What the character is really meant to explore and represent in the movie is the way that poor whites are co-opted to continue the suppression of people of color and I thought that was real fascinating.

Tim Blake Nelson has joined Destin Cretton’s next film, “Just Mercy,” starring Michael B. Jordan and Brie Larson. [When] you watch the film it’s like “What can I do?”… No one can do everything although Bryan [Stevenson] is very close. So the film forced me to ask and answer for myself, “What is your something?”. Watching Richardson grapple with his own guilt, tormented by the fact that he has blood on his hands and will die as a consequence of something he truly had no control over is heartbreaking and thought-provoking. That’s an interesting challenge when you’re playing an outlandish character…Not to walk in and seem to take over a scene because the protagonist in all of those scenes is Brian Stevenson played by Michael B Jordan.
