Actor in Ken Park, A Dirty Shame, and Spike Lee’s upcoming Inside Man. Ransone talks about John Waters’s Pink Flamingos for WOW’s Movies That Shook the World
1. Describe yourself as if you were writing a personals ad.
Skinny white tattooed male seeks girl with aceribic wit, must have fine taste in footwear and stationery. Will dance with you reluctantly. Actresses need not apply.
2. If you had two tickets to paradise, where would you go and who would you take?
Man, I’ve been waiting so long. Eddie Money, and we’d go wherever the fuck he wanted. I’m too big of a pussy to say the name of the girl who I want to go to Costa Rica with.
3. Who plays you in the movie?
I’m not sure if that actor has been born yet, so the answer is in hypotheticals, probably Steve Buscemi and Ashton Kutcher’s love child.
4. Who do you go to for advice?
My dad. Then when I realize I don’t want advice I could give myself, I usually go to Bobby Lurie (musician, producer) or John Waters. They have lives, so when they’re not available I talk to my best friend, Jason Dill.
5. What makes you cry?
Everything except the stuff that matters, uh, that shit makes me stronger.
Bonus: Toilet paper roll – over or under?
Here come the tears.
