Drew Pearce Talks About Father John Misty's Casting
Drew Pearce, the director of Hotel Artemis, decided to cast Father John Misty as a bank robber because he worked with him three years ago on the music video for "The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment."
"Father John Misty is one of the four bank robbers at the beginning. I made a music video for Josh, and the camera loves him. The movies when I was growing up, even sci-fi movies and stuff, there would often be a small role for a [musician]... I just think Josh is amazing on camera, and he was up for it, and he's also done some work for the soundtrack as well," explained Pearce.
