Taylor Kitsch will forever be Riggins to passionate fans of Friday Night Lights.┬áBut in The Grand Seduction, a remake of the 2003 French-Canadian film, Seducing Doctor Lewis, he plays a doctor who’s lured into spending a month with a tiny Newfoundland harbor village. The town needs to convince Kitsch’s Dr. Lewis to stay permanently so that a company will be encouraged to build a new factory nearby; Brendan Gleason plays the elder tasked with making the quaint hamlet everything Lewis ever wanted. (Yes, it sounds a little like Doc Hollywood.)

Kitsch, who won plaudits for his performance in Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor and just starred in HBO’s The Normal Heart, was hooked by the story and the opportunity to work with Gleason. “It’s really his movie,” Kitsch says. “He was a huge factor in me signing on and we’re hopefully going to work together again. He’s that type of guy: ego-less. It was really refreshing for me to go away and just work with him and see how much he cares about the work.”

The 33-year-old spoke to EW about the movie, which opens May 30, his knowledge — or lack thereof — of cricket, and the directors he stole from for his directorial debut, a short film that’s playing a festival next month. READ FULL STORY
