In an era defined by nostalgia, Adam Brody is one kind of superstar.
Brody was the pinup boy of the Bush era as the breakout star of “The O.C.,” the Orange County-set nighttime soap that featured a fast-talking, indie-rock-loving nerd at its center. Brody has yet to find a role as defining as Urban Outfitters-clad Seth Cohen, though he’s worked consistently since “The O.C.” concluded its four-season run in 2007, including roles in franchise fare like “Scream 4″ and independent quirk-fests like “Damsels in Distress” and “Jennifer’s Body.”
But the 33-year-old star, best known for playing a young teen, is taking a big step with “Lovelace,” in which he plays porn star Harry Reems, a real-life performer who died earlier this year. Brody’s film is concerned at once with “Deep Throat” star Linda Lovelace’s rise to fame and with her degradation at the hands of unworthy men, but Brody plays one of the good guys, a supportive costar who makes the whole thing seem like fun even when he’s, well, performing opposite Lovelace in “Deep Throat.” It’s a long way from Orange County. Brody spoke to Salon about breaking out of the teen-star box as well as his views on porn — yes, he watches — and whether it’s feminist or degrading.
Here is Adam’s interview with Next Movie.
We caught up with Brody in New York City ahead of the release of “Lovelace” and got him to dish on porn, life after “The O.C.” and what makes him cry.
What was the most surprising part of “Lovelace” for you?
Well, I knew nothing about it really. I was coming onto it completely clean. I’m familiar with the documentary “Inside Deep Throat,” but that doesn’t really go into Linda’s story. I think it barely touches on it, but it’s not really what I remember so much as the censorship stuff that took place after the film. Obviously the shocking, brutal stuff in it is her relationship with her husband. But I didn’t have even preconceived notions, so I can’t say anything threw me.
What did you learn from the experience?
No new skills, but it was nice to inhabit a place and time—a very specific place and time in our history. It feels relevant today. Sex is always relevant, especially at this time and this specific intersection of sex and fame and the mainstreaming of pornography. That’s the backdrop and the main thing obviously is a story of abuse and victimization and that’s relevant too. Hopefully we’ve made some strides and it’s less rampant. Fortunately or not, my part was more just good fun and we have some of the sweeter, goofier stuff. It wasn’t a harrowing experience for me.
