Q5: Last Vegas Movie Cast

Q5 with Last Vegas Movie: Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline

Written by Kelli Gillespie

Las Vegas has seen its share of party goers over the years, but none as unlikely as this group of four guys who have been best friends since childhood. Academy Award Winners Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Cline join forces as their characters hit the Vegas scene for a bachelor party. When Billy (Douglas’ role) the sworn bachelor of the group announces he’s finally getting married, these friends decide to escape retirement and reunite in the Sin City, which they soon discover is not quite the same as decades ago.  All four bring their own perspectives to this new comedy.

Interviewed for Risen Magazine at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas , Nevada

Risen Magazine: The film is about friendships, so if Michael Douglas is hanging out with friends, what would you guys be doing?
Michael Douglas: Probably reminiscing… old friends is normally about old memories. For us, it’s been about a year since we shot this. I have seen Bobby a couple of times. I haven’t seen Morgan much at all, although he and I are golf buddies. We had a very pleasant time working together.

Risen Magazine: The guys love each other enough because they make sacrifices for each other and have tough needed conversations. So who Robert, in your life would be that person to keep you grounded or encourage you to dream?
Robert DeNiro: It could be a few people in my life. My good friends, family, and we’ve all gotten to be friends. We’ve all known each other and run into each other from time to time. These guys.

Risen Magazine: Morgan, your character is the risk taker, sneaking out of his house and gambling his savings. In real life, I’ve got to believe there is a little bit of that it you?
Morgan Freeman: I would say yes. I like living on the edge. I take chances. Quiet life is not for me; I’d get bored.
Risen Magazine: Michael your character is the most youthful, even down to his dress, so what keeps you young?
Michael Douglas: I kind of concur with Morgan. I like flying without a net. The exciting part of acting, or projects, are when it’s a little dangerous, they aren’t safe, have too short of schedules to be able to make them in, the subject matter – I enjoy all that.

Risen Magazine: Kevin, your character is the one that is married. In real life you are approaching 25 years of marriage, what has worked for you? What can you pass on?
Kevin Kline: Forgiveness, grace, mercy, understanding…the seven deadly virtues. [Laughter] You are going to need them all baby!
